Error 102 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED): The server refused the connection


I just installed a fresh copy of FreePBX 2.9 on my server that was running the 2.7 version.

Prior to the upgrade i was able to access my FreePBX admin panel via the internet however, since the upgrade, i lost the capability and just get the Error 102 message in the subject.

i have gone into the System Admin panel and verified my network settings but to no avail. I can only get access to the panel via my internal ip address.

What do i need to do? and can you please tell me step by step as i am completely new to linux.

Exposing it to the Internet is a huge security risk. We do not advise doing it.

You also did not tell us how you installed the FreePBX or what operating system so it is impossible to offer any assistance.

I downloaded the iso file and burned it to cd and inserted it into the drive to run the install.

The version OS is the CentOS 2.6.18-194.17.1.e15

Thanks for the prompt response.
