I have to say, been trying out your appliances, especially your LAMP Appliance for about a few weeks to a month, getting so involved that I revived my Old HP Mini 2133 Notebook and slapped your LAMP appliance and started building on that!, your appliances (in lack of a lengthly description) are just simply AWESOME! 

BUT!!! alas troubled brewed for me, I simply cannot figure out why I cant access webmin, etc from the outside (WAN) ! Let me tell you a little about the setup (just simply)...


  • Dynamic IP (setup with dyndns) and mapping to my domain home.test.com;
  • home.test.com setup and using cloudflare, however for direct remote connections i use ip.test.com and disabled cloudflare acceleration and protection;
  • Port forwarded the ports 22,80,443,12320,12321 on my router;
  • LAN, no issues, any pc can connect to Webmin / Web Shell / phpMyAdmin/ SFTP/ Website / ETC;
  • Used GRC's Shields UP Test and checked if the port is open, turn's out it is!;
  • Can access TKL via SFTP from an outside location (WAN);
  • Can access my websites from an outside location(see below)

Webmin Configruation

  • Using Turnkey LAMP Appliance
  • No IP Controls or ACL's
  • Using Default Appliance ports
  • No change to Turnkey's stock firewall

Web Server Info

  • Default  path : /var/www
  • Running and hosting a few different sites;
  • Placed an "HTML - Redirect" on /var/www, to one of my sites residing in /var/www/public/mywebsite


Hope the info above is enough to help, I have tried all kinds of troubleshooting, trying to trace where its going wrong, bt just cant seem to wrap my finger around it! I went down the thinking at the packet-level but...oops, hit a wall!

Would appreciate if someone can help

Disappointed that there were no replies to this, but anywho just wanted to let ya'll know that its resolved now, make sure if you are connecting from a corporate environment, that the relevant "OUTBOUND" ports are opened, e.g. 12320, 12321, 22, etc.
