Getting there!  backup your config.  It is a xml file and wordpad reads it 
fine.  Find your firewall rule.  One should look like this;
   <descr>Allow remote admin</descr>
If it doesn't, make it look like that.  (However, the <descr> can be 
anything.  Now try the web admin again.  If it still fails, you are not 
getting to m0n0wall.  It is time to look at your network.
