No. First, m0n0wall has no shell. Second, the web GUI is not a config
tool, but the backbone of the system.

Pick any port. And run it with ssl if you want.

This is not a technical problem, and can not be solved with a technical
solution. However, the new Sarbanes Oxley regulations can be your friend
here. "I am not sure about this. Isn't giving access to the firewall to
people not on the security team a violation of Sarbanes-Oxley? Should we
ask legal, or the auditors?"
