How To Solved Webmin – SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length

Many operating systems block access to port 10000 by default, as they have a firewall activated as part of the installation process. This may prevent you from logging into http://yourserver:10000/ from another system on your network or over the Internet.

The simplest way to open up port 10000 is to use one of the Webmin firewall management modules, such as Linux Firewall, BSD Firewall or IPFilter Firewall. However, to access this you’ll need to run a brower on the same system as Webmin, and access it via the URL http://localhost:10000/.

The alternative is to login as root via SSH, and manually edit the firewall configuration file. On Redhat and derived systems, this is /etc/sysconfig/iptables, while on Debian it is /var/lib/iptables. The line you need to add is :

-A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 10000 -j ACCEPT

It should be added in the file just after similar lines which grant access to ports 80, 22 and so on.

Once this line has been added, you will need to apply the firewall configuration. This is typically done with the command /etc/init.d/iptables restart .

1. Open file With Nano Editor:

[root@centos7 ~]# nano /etc/sysconfig/iptables

2.Paste That Code:

# sample configuration for iptables service
# you can edit this manually or use system-config-firewall
# please do not ask us to add additional ports/services to this default configu$
-A INPUT -p icmp -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -i lo -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 10000 -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -p tcp -m state --state NEW -m tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-host-prohibited
-A FORWARD -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-host-prohibited

3. Save File:

Ctrl+X and Save Press Y

 After Save File Check iptables Services With Folowing Commands  :

[root@centos7 ~]# systemctl start iptables

. To restart iptables :

[root@centos7 ~]# systemctl restart iptables

. To stop iptables :

[root@centos7 ~]# systemctl stop iptables

. To reload iptables :

[root@centos7 ~]# systemctl reload iptables

4. Update Firefox on CentOS Linux
