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”

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

Your help is very much appreciated


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

2- netstat -ntlp | grep 307 returns the following

tcp 0 0* LISTEN 27541/perl

3- tcptroute showed that [closed]

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