Hi  Martin,

The address to use is:   http://<domain or IP>:5984/_utils/

If that does not work, you may have a fire walling issue. This could be 
either that your Centos server firewall is not allowing your messages 
in, or that
your source machine is not allowed to send messages out on port 5984.

Not knowing the firewalls that are set up, we can't help further.
