Default extending debian...changing webmin port doesn't work

Hi, sorry if I've wrongly commented on the tutorial, this should the appropriate place.
I've followed the perfect debian server with ispconfig3 tutorial, then the SSL post on faqforge, and everything went ok on my virtualized server and on the online one. Once it gets to changing default port for webmin, activating it on ispconfig firewall, restarting webmin and apache, and no way, the page I get on the browser (url is https://x.x.x.x:1888) is (Chrome in this case, but the timeout is consistent for all browsers.

Error 118 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT)

I've checked with a netstat, but the port is listening

tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:18888 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 32521/perl

udp 0 0 0.0.0.0:18888 0.0.0.0:* 32521/perl

an iptables list gives this response

<code> Chain INPUT (policy DROP)

target prot opt source destination

DROP tcp -- anywhere loopback/8

ACCEPT all -- anywhere anywhere state RELATED,ESTABLISHED

ACCEPT all -- anywhere anywhere

DROP icmp -- anywhere anywhere

...

</code>

So, everything seems in order, what could it be stopping me from accessing webmin from alternative port? Please consider that default port works, and all other services work, since I've followed letter by letter you instructions...

Did I forget anything? Where could I look?port works, and all other services work, since I've followed letter by letter you instructions...

Did you try to disable the firewall for testing purposes? Did you check your logs files for errors?

I've tried disabling the firewall, changing port number n times, the only way to access webmin is to go back to the 10000 port on miniserv.conf
I've checked all the logs on /var/logs but no one seems to show anything useful.
Which one precisely should I look into?
Webmin interface also doesn't help in finding useful info (one I got back to port 10000).
I would like to change ispconfig port as well, but don't want to incur in the same issue...
