Can't connect to Pritunl web interface

I am trying to setup Pritunl following this tutorial: … vpn-ubuntu">

After following steps listed there, I couldn't connect to Pritunl web interface from the url: https://my.ip:9700. it gets timed out.

My iptables rules are like below :


Allow all loopback (lo0) traffic and reject traffic

to localhost that does not originate from lo0.

-A INPUT -i lo -j ACCEPT

-A INPUT ! -i lo -s -j REJECT

Allow ping.

-A INPUT -p icmp -m state --state NEW --icmp-type 8 -j ACCEPT

Allow SSH connections.

-A INPUT -p tcp --dport 22 -m state --state NEW -j ACCEPT

Allow HTTP and HTTPS connections from anywhere

(the normal ports for web servers).

-A INPUT -p tcp --dport 80 -m state --state NEW -j ACCEPT

-A INPUT -p tcp --dport 443 -m state --state NEW -j ACCEPT

-A INPUT -p tcp --dport 22222 -m state --state NEW -j ACCEPT

-A INPUT -p udp -m udp --sport 9700 --dport 1025:65355 -j ACCEPT

-A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --sport 9700 --dport 1025:65355 -j ACCEPT

Allow inbound traffic from established connections.

This includes ICMP error returns.


Log what was incoming but denied (optional but useful).

-A INPUT -m limit --limit 5/min -j LOG --log-prefix "iptablesINPUTdenied: " --log-level 7

Reject all other inbound.


Log any traffic which was sent to you

for forwarding (optional but useful).

-A FORWARD -m limit --limit 5/min -j LOG --log-prefix "iptablesFORWARDdenied: " --log-level 7

Reject all traffic forwarding.



Just wondering what I am doing wrong. I have bothe Pritunl and mongod service are up and running.

Looks to me like 9700 should be the dport, not the sport.
