[SOLVED] Another no web GUI access thread

Hi all,

Seems to be a common theme. I cannot access the Proxmox web GUI after having freshly installed 8.0.2.

I have set a static lease of to my Proxmox server but note that accessing the GUI was also not possible with DHCP. After setting the static IP, I was sure to update /etc/network/interfaces and /etc/hosts.

I've used nmap to check that 8006 is open, which it is. When I use curl to pipe the HTML to bash, I get an output from the Proxmox server itself. Trying the same from a client on the network results in nothing. I can't ssh or ping the Proxmox server, either.

Any ideas would be welcome.
