Not exactly what you are looking for, but have you looked into
SmoothWall for firewall/vpn solutions?

Subject: web gui for server administration


I am planning run an old computer as a router. I have been looking into
IPCop which is a custom Linux distribution built specifically for that
purpose, but I need more flexibility and want to be able to extend the
functionality of my router, which is quite difficult with these highly
specialized distributions. 

I would like to replace my IPCop router with an Ubuntu Command line
system to which I can then add some additional functionality such as VPN
server, but the major hurdle is that Ubuntu does not provide an easy GUI
to administer the server. The only web based GUI that I am aware of is
Landscape by Canonical, which however is not released under GNU. Another
tool is Webmin, however I have heard it is not recommended. 

Can you recommend a good web-based tool for administering an Ubuntu
