To access ESXi through web browser you will have to make sure that you are able to ping/reach the ESXi host from the machine you are trying to use the browser. Make sure that your ESXi and the machine are on same subnet or they are able to talk to each other.

The ports 80/443 must be open on the firewall of the machine from which you are trying to access ESXi.

I hope when you say web interface you are not  meaning web client. Web client is used only to access vcenter. NOt an individual ESXi host.
