I have used poptop a bit, mostly because there is no OpenVPN
client for that works with the iPad.

As for webmin, we do have clients using it, but only restricted
to the internal LAN, and specified hosts on that LAN as I have
found some rather evil bugs (e.g. removing /home when doing user
maintenance after accepting /home as a user's home directory).

Fix reason firmly in her seat and call to her tribunal every fact,
every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God;
because, if there is one, he must more approve of the homage of 
reason, than that of blindfolded fear.  --Thomas Jefferson
