I want to https access to my webmin page without
using SSL mode in webmin but through stunnel.
It works perfect except that in login page, after I fill in
the username, password and click 'login' I get a error
page, "page can't be displayed" for IE, "Network error,
can't connect" for Nescape. But I do get login if I then
click 'refresh' button.
My webmin server(1.030) is running on redhat 7.2.

Any advice is very appreciated.

    I can see why this would fail, because webmin will not know
    what port number the browser is really contacting it on and
    thus not be able to re-direct properly after the login. Why
    not use webmin's built-in SSL support, explained at
    http://www.webmin.com/ssl.html ?
