For those that want an easier way to control your server then Webmin is a great utility.

Here is an in depth video walk-thru of Webmin!

We'll possibly add a wiki guide for it eventually, but anyone out there that has used it before, feel free to take the lead on this!;)

We may even add it to auto-install along with PlexGuide in the future!:geek:

There's also a Digital Ocean tutorial here:-
https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-webmin-on-ubuntu-16-04

NOTE: It's not a service like Teamviewer or x2go!;)

From memory you just need to edit the IP-Tables to get it working, everything else is as standard.

iptables -I INPUT 1 -p tcp --dport 10000 -j ACCEPT

This works for a test but I don't think it survives a reboot.

guys!

ive had three hours sleep and been at this since 5am :/
please remember some of us are supern00bs...
i tried watching the video but 45 minutes....and talking what i can only describe as gibberish(kill me im tired)...im still no nearer to accessing server with any kind of gui..
followed instructions in the x2go tutorial but when i try and access it i get
mesg ttyname failed Inappropriate ioctl for device bash

honestly, it feels like every step i make forward i take two back
(spoonfeeeeeed me pleeeeeeeease. haha)


What is the difference between webmin and x2go/tv?
i just want to be able to make clicks rather than run lines

FFS i better go to work (NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO i dont wanna)


EDIT x2gosessions not found <????????????????????????

@DeadPool I just replied to you on the x2go thread!;)

SO IM NOT BEING A LAZY SONNAMABEECH, im actually trying!


(but boy oh boy is this stuff too complicated for an old boy)

For those of you that have followed our Securing the Server Guide or have already enabled UFW then you will need to run this command:-
sudo ufw allow 10000
to allow Webmin through the firewall!:)
