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

Thanks for the reply.
Ok, so that's good that it's installed and behaving so far.

  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
