 Hi, Just found your site (quite impressed) & I'm trying out the File Server Appliance.  I can login ok to shell, shell in a box & eXtploer all OK but Not webmin, I'm using correct address  but get error 102 connection refused.  Any Ideas?

Thanks Garry

I'm new at this too, but isn't the webmin port: 12321


(also make sure you've set up that port if on network)

EDIT: Oh wait, I'm not using the file server, I'm using the lamp server, sorry!

Chris is correct, webmin listens on port 12321 on all appliances.

 Thanks Chris & Alon, I feel a little embarrassed at missing that.  I guess that's what happens when I stay up till 1am.   



I really like the cleanness of the turnkey site, looks good & easy to navigate, not to mention what you guys are doing with the TurnKey appliances is fantastic.   I'm currently testing a number of specific Nas type solutions, eBox, FreeNas, Openfiler, when I cam across TurnKey & found your File Server Appliance. So far I really like Freenas with its small footprint & easy to use browser interface, but I'm a Ubuntu fan so keen to check out the TurnKey NAS.  In the past we have just used debian & later Ubuntu server.

If you're familiar with Ubuntu/Debian server then you'll have lots of fun with TKL. The appliances are nice straight out of the box, but being based on Ubuntu 8.04 makes them completely customisable. I think you'll find the TKL Fileserver appliance is pretty resource friendly too. I'm sure it'd run on 256MB RAM (or probably less). I have an instance running in an OpenVZ container which is serving tons of files and it runs at around 30MB RAM!

Thanks Jed,  having a good poke around now.  I gues its not going to be too much differnet from my current ubuntu samba server, except it comes preconfigured with all the packages and modules ready to go with some nice gui's, to save the user time & a possible big learning curve over doing it from scratch?   Does this sound correct of am I misssing a few benifits of TKL.

I think TKL is fantastic concept, I only wish it was around 10yrs ago when I knew even less than what I do know :)

Cheers Garry

I particularly find the preconfigured SSH and SFTP useful. I don't use Webmin much these days (except for configuring Samba) but it helped me with the transition from Win server to Linux.

I'm trying out the File Server Appliance.  I can login ok to shell, shell in a box & eXtploer all OK but Not webmin and all this after security upgrade. i tray check dependencies and update  again but i have a lot of webmin-XXXXXX modules not found. can help me?

What happens when you try to connect to webmin (ie https://<ip-address>:12321/ - do you get an error message of some sort or does it just not accept your password? By default it should use the same username (root) and password (set up at install) as SSH.

Have you checked your networking? When you say you are getting "a lot of webmin-XXXXXX modules not found" it makes me think that you may have a firewall, proxy or something else getting in your way. Can you please provide a little more info about your setup and also if you could copy-paste error messages is probably more useful.

I am unable to login to the samba shares with guest setup, or with admin root, or the user i setup.

i have changed win7 so that it dosen't require added security, so it should work, and was able to connect to a old samba setup I had on a different server.


Maybe the File Server Appliance has a issue with the samba conf file. I would love to set this up and use it, but it seems that i can't get into the samba shares.


Here is my included samba.conf file:



log file = /var/log/samba/samba.log
guest account = nobody
add group script = /usr/sbin/groupadd '%g'
passwd chat = *Enter\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *Retype\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *password\supdated\ssuccessfully* .
