How to create new access port for Azure Linux servers

Today i installed webmin(visual server management tool) in my Azure Ubuntu server. After installation completed, i tried to login to webmin panel via https://IP:10000 , but no success. I did same installation a lot of times with another Linux servers and i surprised when i saw nosuccess in this last case. I tried some research with iptables, netstats, webmin conf file etc. But no result. At the end i have found that to create new access port you need to allow it via Azure Virtual Machine Dashboard.

So i did it, and now the port 10000 works.

This is how to do it:

1. Login to your Azure account (

2. Go to my account section (

3. Open Dashboard and choose Virtual Machines tab.

4. Click to your virtual machine name.
