Can't connect to webmin, changed wifi router a factor?


I'm picking up my home project of bashing my head against a brick wall (sorry that's building a home server) after a lay-off of a couple of months.

I re-started the machine, plugged it into the wifi router and was able to SSH into it, no problem.  I remembered that I cut and pasted some code so that webmin (and the VMs) would restart automatically on boot up, and this seems to be the case (at least for webmin).

anthony@Server-Main:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/webmin status
[sudo] password for anthony:
Webmin (pid 2946) is running

However when I check using the command (https://server-main.lan:1000/) from last time in the chrome browser I get the following:


Any ideas?  One thing that I should mention is that in the 2 months since working on the home server last time, we now have a different router (fibre optic broadband yay!)  Could this be a factor as to why I can't see webmin from the browser even though it is running apparently.  Are there any other checks that I can do?

Two things.  Did your LAN IP base address change like from 10.0.0.xx to 192.168.1.x?  And Webmin is normally on port 10000 (ten thousand).  Try using the current IP address of the server to get to Webmin.  The last version of Webmin made some change about the IP address but I don't have my server on at the moment.

My mistake with the port number, I read somewhere that it might be the port number being used by another service and so I got rid of a zero and updated the webmin file.  Changed it all back to 10000.  

The IP address hasn't changed it's still  192.168etc. I tried what you suggested with:

and still no joy.
