Thanks again. For now it is kind of just a test box, but these are the things that I want to know because I will eventually go live with it. If Webmin is insecure, then I won't mess around with it much. I'll spend the extra time with the configs.

I don't recommend it at all. Rather stick to editing the config files, it's not that dofficult. -- Raoul Snyman, B.Tech IT (Software Engineering) Saturn Laboratories e: raoul.snyman at saturnlaboratories.co.za w: http://www.saturnlaboratories.co.za/ b: http://blog.saturnlaboratories.co.za/ http://raoulsnyman.co.za/ -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
