Take a look at:

I'm coping the note on the bottom of the page:

Opening your webGUI to the entire internet is a *BAD IDEA*. Limit it
to only the IP address required. If the remote administration host is
on DHCP, you can limit it to the remote machine's ISP's netblock
rather than opening it to the entire internet. Opening your firewall
administration interface to the entire internet, even with strong
authentication, is *STRONGLY DISCOURAGED* on any firewall.

I agree with this statement. IMHO, it is a better idea to setup a VPN
(pick a flavor - PPTP, IPSEC, or OpenVPN) then manage the m0n0wall
after connecting (Authenticated and Encrypted).
