using webmin

I'm running a linux red hat 9 server with sendmail for my mail server I would like to administer this server over the web if I need to...
webmin works great for this except there seems to be no security is there a way to add security to webmin or is there another program out there to do this job?

Do not use Webmin on a machine connected directly to the Internet! Never, ever.
Log in using SSH and take care of what you have to do instead.

hw-tph means, that you use ssh (secure shell) to gain access to the machine you have webmin installed on. like the following:
ssh "ip address of machine" eg
it will then prompt you for the password of the user you are currently login as.
