General Networking/Lan/Wan/cannot connect to server on lan
I have created a server with centos and cpanel installled. This has a lan ip of 192.168.0.6 ifconfig on the server confirms this. A firewall is installed but disabled at present
I have my laptop which i wish to be able to access the server via a browser. if i go to my gateway ip which is http://192.168.0.1
then this brings up my router page.
If i go to http://192.168.0.6
- default server page or http://192.168.0.6:2086
- whm panel login i just get page not found.
I have preformed a ping test from my laptop and i can ping the server at ping 192.168.0.6 and the results are good.
I really need to be able to connect via the browser and I cannot see why this is not returning the server in the browser. Do you have any ideas.
Hi Stuart, and thanks for your question.
According to this page:
you should be accessing your CPanel server with the URL:
note the "https" instead of "http" and port 2087 instead of 2086.
If that doesn't work, then I think the problem is definitely on the server side, given that the Ping works. Here is the official troubleshooting documentation for CPanel:
Good luck, and I hope this helps,
