install FMS 13 test of web server fails: port 80 connection refused

Your post

Excuse my stupidity on this one, but a simple problem has me stumped.

I'm installing FileMaker Server 13 on a new Mac Mini.  I'm going through the Deployment Assistant, and get stuck on step 5.  The IP address of the host is the IP address of the Mac Mini and the connection attempt is HTTP on port 80.  I get a message: "Test web server (http://127.0.0.1:80/fmi-test/test.xml): Connection refused"

I have my router (I'm using a Time Capsule) to do NAT port forwarding -- ports 80, 443, 5003 (for FileMaker) and 8020 (for 360Work SuperContainer) are all forwarded to the IP address of the Mac Mini.  Yet a port scan (using Network Utility), I only find port 88 open.  I'm thinking this is where the problem lies, but I'm not sure.

Any suggestions for why a connection on port 80 would be refused?  This is a new Mac Mini with nothing but FileMaker Server 13 loaded on it.

Thanks,

Martin Ramsay
