Changing default Webmin port to an uncommon one is also a good idea, here’s a video howto, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uO9qXYLF4GU

thanks for your reply @pablo, I don’t go anywhere until I ask my dear google about my doubts,I think the mistake I did was I was searching for virtualmin instead of webmin. even though there is no how to steps to change the port no :10000 to something else. <br>As I am a nooob in linux it is very difficult for me to understand where about’s of the linux commands etc. <br>What is found is the link http://www.virtualmin.com/documentation/security/faq where the similar thing is given as your link. <br>
