Hello Rob,

Yes, I did the configuration earlier today. And I did kinit too.
It seems the web UI loads really slowly - the circular thing can turn
for minutes. So maybe I wasn't patient enough to let the page load.

A fair bit of javascript is loaded the very first time you visit IPA, that can be slow. Otherwise it should be relatively quick. Not minutes anyway.

I can ssh to the server and the client from my home, so I don't think
there's another firewall blocking the connection.

Different ports and that isn't the client talking to the server, it is you talking to the client and to the server. This is definitely some sort of networking problem, though "no route to host" is rather odd since you can ping. You might also look at the iptables configuration on the client.

    You need to configure the browser to do Kerberos single sign-on.
    There should be a link in the failure message to take you to a page
    to help you configure this. You also need to have done a kinit.

    I'm not sure why forms-based auth work work only sometimes,
    additional details would be needed.

    I'm not sure why the server would be pingable from your client but
    HTTP doesn't work. There may be another firewall blocking the
    packets on your network.
