A possible way is the following:
Use a box with three interfaces;
Put a Laptop with crossovercable on LAN, hardening the access to the 
M0n0 (https,high-port, strong password, rules).
Put the internal LAN to the OPT1 interface, deny access to the IP of the 
M0n0 except DNS, log it.

So it is not possible to reach the webgui within the Lan
