i was using the telnet/ssh thing as an example. I don't understand why you
would want to do that. Its sort of like webmin with ssl giving you a This
web server is running in SSL mode. Try the URL https://192.168.1.150:65530/
instead when you go to http instead of https. I personally feel it is
better to lock everything down. Again, that is just a personal thing.

I think you're misunderstanding (or else I am.) It seems they want to
redirect connections to the web interface that would go to port 80
(cleartext) to port 443 (https). A 403 style redirect. Not just have it
listen on a different port.
It is a sound idea, that way you can enforce admin access over SSL.
