Although Webmin usually needs no additional customization to work correctly, the system administrator might want to limit from where this tool can be accessed and whether remote administration will be allowed, for obvious security reasons. This can be done by clicking on the Webmin configuration button as seen in Figure 364, which shows the various configuration menus. IP access control (Figure 365) can be used to restrict the IP addresses from which Webmin can be accessed. Entering the localhost (loopback) address will limit access to Webmin from the browser on the machine to be administered. This is very important if the system is on a public network to avoid a remote compromise of the system.
