Okay -- sorry. Sometimes I get so absorbed in one part of what I'm
working on I miss something on the other parts -- usually the painfully
obvious. That's what it was. I had forgotten you could change to
HTTPS and change the port. Once I saw your post, I tried it with HTTPS
and used the port I used to use with IPCop. That worked. I must have
forgotten that I changed it so it'd be easier to remember (just go with
what I had used for a few years).
Thanks! I feel like an idiot, but it's working fine now.
