Another option is to let ssh do the work for you. Let's say webmin is
listening on port 80 on your machine 'headless'

You should be able to do this:
ssh -L 8080:localhost:80 headless

Once you've signed in to 'headless,' you can point your browser at
http://localhost:8080 and work with webmin via a secure channel, as well
as without having to dink with any config files.
