As you want to open port 10000 I assume you already have webmin.

Connect to and login as your webmin user, go to Network, then linux firewall.

you can add a rule that accepts connections when the destination port is 10000 ( you will also have to specify TCP as the network protocol) - Thats the same same as opening port 10000 through iptables.

/sbin/iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -m state --state NEW,ESTABLISHED,RELATED -p tcp -s -d --dport 10000 -j ACCEPT
replace eth0 with your external interface device (which is probably eth0)
replace with your external IP
replace with allowable IP network ( means everyone )
