Yes indeed. Like you my home server's monitor sits in some closet
somewhere and I've been doing all my admin via SSH. I've used Webmin
but sort of got out of the habit. Then I wiped and rebuilt with a
different OS and never bothered to reinstall it until today. Have to
say the 1.310 version is a marked improvement over what I remember.
Spiffy new default interface an a bunch of extra features. Definitely
worth the download IMO, and with a simple SSH port forward you have
true remote admin with a clicky interface, and no extra public facing
services for the kiddies to beat on. What's not to like about that?? :)
