    Hi there everyone,

    I've got WHM 10.8.0 running on Fedora 4 through GoDaddy, and I've run into a problem on initial setup:

    I want to be able to connect to the cPanel/WHM control panel via https://server.mydomain.com, instead of https://111.000.111.000:2087/, so I changed the host name under WHM, and it asked if I wanted an Aname created, and I said yes. When attempting to connect via the URL, it was refusing the connection. GoDaddy said it was because I was behind a firewall, and cPanel was trying to resolve to the local IP, and they stated that I need to use the public IP to connect to, so I altered the Aname to point to the IP address that the server uses.

    This brings me to the standard front page for that URL, and if I add the port on the end of the url manually through the browser, it times out while trying to connect., so I thought I would add the port designation:)2087) behind the url in the Aname record via WHM. When I try to do that, WHM tells me that I have an error:

    Can anyone tell me how to get https://server.mydomain.com(or https://server.mydomain.com:2087) to point to https://111.000.111.000.:2087 ?
