Might there be anything CentOS related on why I cannot access the
Monit GUI system on http://box-running-monit.com:2812 ?

I am using a very basic /etc/monit.conf config, but I cannot get it
serve the web page on my box

The service start and stops fine (e.g. "/etc/init.d/monit start"), and
I have it set to listen to port 2812 in the "/etc/monit.conf file" (so
far, kept the default)

e.g. in "/etc/monit.d/monitrc" file

set daemon  60
set logfile syslog facility log_daemon
set mailserver localhost
set mail-format { from: monit at server1.example.com }
set alert me at mydomain.com
set httpd port 2812

check process sshd with pidfile /var/run/sshd.pid
  start program  "/etc/init.d/sshd start"
  stop program  "/etc/init.d/sshd stop"
  if failed port 22 protocol ssh then restart
  if 5 restarts within 5 cycles then timeout

(I also enabled the 2812 port using CentOS's
"system-config-securitylevel" command, which added the right IPtables
entries, which I see okay on "iptables -L")
