#StackBounty: #networking #ssh #ufw Curl works, but not pages in a web browser

Bounty: 50

I’m running Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS on a Linode server and OpenLiteSpeed openlitespeed.org.

I’m getting timeouts for example.com:8088 and example.com:7080, the two OpenLightSpeed admin and config pages, in a browser.

But running
curl 127.0.0.1
gives me the text of the index.html file at root, and
curl http://localhost:8088
gives me the html dump of the OpenLiteSpeed admin page.

So curl works, but I can’t connect to example.com:8088 and example.com:7080 in a browser.

Apache is running, but OpenLightSpeed hasn’t yet been configured to use port 80, since I can’t get to the admin pages.

ufw status shows:

65500                ALLOW        Anywhere                 
443                    ALLOW        Anywhere

443/tcp (v6)        ALLOW        Anywhere (v6)            
7080/tcp (v6)    ALLOW        Anywhere (v6)            
8088/tcp (v6)    ALLOW        Anywhere (v6)            
OpenSSH (v6)    ALLOW        Anywhere (v6)            
80/tcp (v6)        ALLOW        Anywhere (v6)

Completely disabling ufw makes no difference with the issue.

Any ideas?
