See /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf

The "allow=" line limits access to localhost.  Comment out the
line to allow access from anywhere, or change it to e.g.
"allow=" to allow access from localhost
and the net.  Note that you have to use a netmask, not a
prefix length.

You should probably set /etc/hosts.allow back the way it was.
