Cannot access webmin remotely even when the firewall stopped

perpetual_dream asked:

I have webmin running on centos on port 307, I can access it locally and I verified it by trying
wget localhost:307

However, I cannot it access it remotely, I have even tried to disable the firewall by running /etc/init.d/iptables stop (I am a newbie and as far as I understood iptables represent the firewall), still I cannot access the webmin interface remotely (through the browser).

I receive the following message:
“Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx”

How can I trace the cause of this problem any better? How can I see what is exactly blocking the connection to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:307 ?

Your help is very much appreciated

Update:

1- Google Chrome just says “Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:307 with no error code.

2- netstat -ntlp | grep 307 returns the following

tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:307 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 27541/perl

3- tcptroute showed that xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx [closed]

4- Please see below a link for the result of iptables -nvL (couldn’t attach)

I answered:

Chrome is a bit funny with IP addresses in the address bar. Try it with the full URL specified, i.e. http://198.51.100.95:307/
