"Are you looking for an easy to use and highly flexible method of administering your Linux box remotely? Does the thought of being able to walk up to a Windows PC and configure your Linux box back home through a web browser sound interesting? Read on for details on how to configure a Web based administration tool on your Linux machine...."

"The open source movement has several options for remotely administering your PC. One of them is a nifty utility called Webmin. Its home page is located at http://www.webmin.com."

"Webmin as the name suggests is a Web Based tool for configuring and tweaking your Linux box remotely. By remote I mean via a LAN/WAN or even accessing a server hosted at some server farm or data center on a broadband network with your service provider. Where your Linux box is located doesn't really matter. All that you need to remotely maintain your Linux box is a browser and a connection to the network. Preferably you should be using a browser which supports JAVA and SSL."
