Remote connection to Webmin Service (Port 10000)

Hello everyone!

I'm currently doing an security audit on a company as a "newbie". After 
scanning the host I leared that several ports were open - including the 
Webmin Port. I tried to connect via Browser to this port but the operation 
timed out. I believe that it is due to the fact that the Webmin Service is 
only available to the localhost. But I am wondering why I was able to connect 
with telnet and download the login-page of Webmin. A simple wget would do the 
same thing.

Can anybody give me some advice and explain why this is that way?

Thx a lot in advance

Kind regards
