Default Unable to browse to ispconfig admin

Hi, I'm very new to Linux and web server administration so apologies if this is a simple fault.

I'm trying to set up an internal web server on our University network. I've installed OpenSuse 10.2 according to the 'Perfect Setup' tutorial and I've installed ISPConfig. Everything seems to have gone well with the exception that when I try to browse to the server to enter the ispconfig interface I just get page not found or timed out (depending on whether I have proxy on or off)

I have chosen the ssl option during set up so I'm trying to access the given address https://172.16.169.10:81 (sorry networks won't give me an external address)

The networks team have suggested that it is a firewall issue but when I check this out via yast it says firewall is disabled so I'm assuming it is an ispconfig firewall setting, but how do I fix this if I can't get to the admin interface?

A hundred thanks to anyone who can help.

If you use a SSH client like putty for windows or linux to connect to your server, you will be able to copy and paste the output of commands

To the original problem. It looks like the ISPConfig webserver is not started. Please execute:

/etc/init.d/ispconfig_server start

Thanks Till, particulary for the putty advice

The ispconfig system wasn't running, however, I'm now getting another issue. When I try to browse to the admin page now in Firefox I get the following messsage ' Could not establish an encrypted connection because certificate presented by 172.16.169.10 has an invalid signature'. In IE I still get the usual Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage.

The network team have suggested that this is because the certificate was created for OpenSuse1.hope.ac.uk (on their advice) but as we don't have an internal DNS Server (!!!) that address will never be resolved so I need to now create a certificate for 172.16.169.10.

Does this sound correct and how can I do this without being able to access the ispconfig interface?

Thanks again for your help

This sounds as the SSL certificate is corrupted. Please create a new certificate as described in this thread by falko:
