I note the comment below from another post on these forums...
"I have webmin/virtualmin on 7 servers and restrict access to a single ip address. If I need to manage anything remotely, I vpn into the network that has access and can manage the servers from there."
I have a static ip address at home and am very keen to explore this option.
I am supposing that the reason i need to be able to do this is because i would be also accessing my webmin/virtualmin installations as an administrator using mobile devices such as tablets and laptops whilst away from the office. So if i restrict access to a particular ip address, this will render my mobile roaming access inoperable if the mobile device ip address changes.
One consideration however, this server is also used in conjunction with WHMCS for client automation and provisioning of web-hosting services, so client access to their own shared cpanel accounts (virtual servers) should not have this restriction for their own user logins.
I am not sure of the model i need to follow in order to achieve this...my assumption is that it via an ssh tunnel but how does that work through my home network exactly? (any help articles on this would be appreciated)
