Found something in a different discussion which is DEFINETLY not clear any where else - the ISO that you download does NOT have a GUI interface - its only meant to be server end not client
You will need a client on the same domain as server to get access.

Hmm... I guess it really is not that obvious. Perhaps we should actually say this a bit more. :) ISO CD is a *server* product. It's meant to be used as a server, even installed remotely, if you so wish.
The UI is all web-based. The only thing you have to figure out, once you get to the point that you have reached is:

1. Figure out the IP address the server is running at:

Login to the console commandline with user as root and password as whatever you set during the CD installation.
Run the command:

This will output something like:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:1f:d0:26:fd:b8
          inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
          inet6 addr: fe80::21f:d0ff:fe26:fdb8/64 Scope:Link
          RX packets:83534910 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:83422375 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:19410799914 (19.4 GB) TX bytes:20262759428 (20.2 GB)
          Interrupt:252 Base address:0xe000

Your IP address is this is inet addr:

Yours will be different.
Take this IP address and save it, or even better point a hostname or a domain to it, then you can access the 2 web UIs like this: itself: http://<IP Address>

Webmin appliance machine management interface: https://<IP address>:10000

And if all this is sounding too complicated, you really should check out the SaaS hosting for instead, it's simple and completely managed by Cynapse, so you have no headaches. :)
