Asterisk Gui- Can not Connect-Urgently Need Help

I am very new in asterisk and Linux.

I am currently using Ubuntu as my server and the latest asterisk and GUI 2.04. I have installed asterisk which is up and running well, but when I try to install the GUI for asterisk, I get a unable to connect in the browser.

I have check the make checkconfig on it and this is what i get.

— Checking Asterisk configuration to see if it will support the GUI —

  • Checking for http.conf: OK

  • Checking for manager.conf: OK

  • Checking if HTTP is enabled: OK

  • Checking if HTTP static support is enabled: OK

  • Checking if manager is enabled: OK

  • Checking if manager over HTTP is enabled: OK
    — Everything looks good —

  • GUI should be available at Tiger:8088/asterisk/static/config/cfgbasic.html

  • Note: If you have bindaddr= in /etc/asterisk/http.conf
    you will only be able to visit it from the local machine.

Example: localhost:8088/asterisk/static/c … basic.html

  • The login and password should be an entry from /etc/asterisk/manager.conf
    which has ‘config’ permission in read and write. For example:

secret = mysecret711
read = system,call,log,verbose,command,agent,config
write = system,call,log,verbose,command,agent,config

But when i try to enter the site in firefox it just says unable to connect.
Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at localhost:8088.

I have tried the sudo ln -s /var/lib/asterisk/static-http/ /usr/share/asterisk/ but it did nothing for me.

Any help would be appreciate

it clearly states,

so whatever ip address Tiger is, I would replace Tiger in that string with the ip address
also there is an asterisk gui forum further down, you should put all gui questions there.
