Hi guys,

I have a lot of experience building and setting up normal desktops but turns out Servers are a whole other different animal after headache after headache... Who knew. Anyways.

I just recently bought a Dell R710 and installed Proxmox onto an SSD.
I'm able to boot Proxmox where I'm presented with:
"Welcome to Proxmox... Please use your Web browser to configure this server - connect to:

I can sign in using user: root and the password. But I can't access the IP Address with my web browser
This site can’t be reached took too long to respond.

I've tried plugging it into the iDrac port and on NIC1 with no success. I also can't ping the IP on my other computers.
The server is connected directly into my modem/router.

Thanks in advanced
can you connect with SSH?
Maybe there is a firewall in your network?
