while logged in to the server via ssh, you could use wget from the command line to retrieve the webmin package: http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/man....html#Invoking

or you could just download the webmin package locally, and use scp (secure copy) to copy the file with ssh: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~s.../download.html

Webmin is a bad choice for administering your linux server. Not a secure way you should use ssh to administer you server.

As mentioned above you should use ssh. I used Webmin on our AIX box at work and it ran horrible. Found that it was better to use telnet or ssh to administer the box.

Webmin Needn't Be Insecure

I am new with Webmin, but I have it running on an old 600 Mhz Celeron that I am configuring as a router. It runs just fine. It isn't perfect, but it is a lot better than the CLI for relatively new users.

You can secure Webmin by adding openssh and openssh-devel via yum:

yum install openssh

It will add both parts. After that you install Net::SSLeay. It is relatively simple to install. Just follow the directions that are freely available. Once that is done, you must enable SSL access in the Webmin configuration. Once activated it will automatically enable SSL and require its use (even though it supposedly be optional).

SSH is great and secure, but Webmin can be secure too. I suggest that if you are finding it slow (on AIX), that something else is wrong with your system. If my old Celeron can run it with only 256 MB RAM, most any box can.

Cheers!
