Hi Ron!

    I did it myself for a new installation in Singapore.  Sent the 
mOnOwall box over there and connected with HTTPS.  My firewall rule 
allowed port 443 FROM "my subnet" (DHCP is used here at my place) TO 
"Fixed IP Address of mOnOwall in Singapore".

You have to:

1) Enable access to the web page with HTTPS protocol (Safer than HTTP! ;-) )

2) Add a rule to let the packets enter the WAN with port 443 to the IP 
Address of your WAN port.

3) In the rule above, you should limit access "FROM" to your subnet or 
even better your IP address if it's fixed.

Hope this helped!
