General Networking/Lan/Wan/cannot connect to server on lan

Question
Hi

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.

Kind regards

Answer
Hi Stuart, and thanks for your question.

According to this page:

http://www.esecuredata.com/2011/08/16/installing-cpanel-on-centos/

you should be accessing your CPanel server with the URL:

https://192.168.0.6:2087/

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,
