So after using the Foreman installer, you don't need to start the
"foreman" service as Foreman runs under Apache when using the installer
(by default). This allows us to run in a more scalable manner and use
HTTPS. The "foreman" service is unused in the installer setup and would
launch a separate service on port 3000.

You should find /etc/apache2/conf.d/foreman.conf is in place, which
configures virtualhosts for HTTP and HTTPS. I'd double check this file
if you can't reach Foreman, as a common issue is the IP addresses in the
VirtualHost and/or ServerNames aren't correct for your network. You may
want to change the IP to a wildcard, which could also solve your
multi-NIC issue.
