   Very good;  that indeed indicates that the LSMB application itself
is available where it is supposed to be.

  In our case, we use a reverse proxy, where  another web application
listens for http requests from a users browser (usually on the
standard http ports), sends them to the LSMB application, then sends
what LMSB returns back to the users browser.  One can use, for
instance; apache, nginx, or lighttpd as the web proxy as we support
all three;  emphasizing https connections for it of course.
  I understand that you have apache already installed?  .Then
installing the 'ledgersmb-1.5-apache' pkg would be useful to you; that
attempts to auto configure apache to be uses as a web proxy for LSMB.
Including to https connections but you'll to update the config
specifically for 'ServerName'.apache config item. (In
