Hello all,

I have been trying to edit my outgoing mail for the Canvas LMS instance on AWS, but havent gotten anywhere. apperantly there are 2 ways to go about it. and they come pre-configured in two ways:


- SSH (command-line interface) - (Which I have no knowledge of or know how to use)
- Webmin (web based GUI admin tool) - (What I was looking for and easier to use and manage)

Webmin would be a more straightforward service to administer the server via, since my experience with Linux is very limited.

After searching the Turnkey Linux forums I found the following post detailing how Webmin seems to be set up in their images:http://www.turnkeylinux.org/forum/support/20081111/webmin-lamp-stack

In order to enable access to Webmin, I tried the following:

1) Open the AWS Management Console in a browser
2) Open the EC2 service page
3) Open Security Groups from the NETWORK & SECURITY list on the left
4) Locate the Security Group named: "Canvas - Learning Management System provided by TurnKey Linux-12-AutogenByAWSMP-"
5) Click on the "Inbound" tab for this security group. Add a new rule as follows:
  - Custom TCP Rule
  - Port range: 10000
  - Source: <your IP Address>. If you do not know your IP address, you could set this to 0.0.0.0/0 but -please be aware- this allows the entire Internet to access the admin interface of your server. This may pose a security risk to your server and you should restrict access to this service as tightly as possible.
6) Attempt to access your server in a browser: https://54.221.202.235:10000

After doing all these steps, I was still unable to get through or access the Webmin.

Help??

You can undo the changes you made and just conect to Webmin on the TKL default of port 12321 so access is via https://<your-appliance-ip>:12321

You just need to make sure you use the public IP (not the private IP). 

One other thing, I assume that you are just using the AWS CP (you got your appliance through the AWS Marketplace?). I recommend you have a look at the TKL Hub.

FWIW that thread you got your info from is nearly 5 years old, TKL have used the non standard port of 12321 for Webmin for many years now...
