    Hello

    Due to stringent office firewalls, I cannot access my Horde at port 2096 (secure port). I would like to do this on 443 - the regular SSL port.

    So instead of:
    https://domain.com:2096/horde/index.php

    I would like:
    https://horde.domain.com

    I googled and found products like CpanelProxy but they only work with port 2095, the non-secure port, which is useless as any half-decent sniffer could figure out my text-only password from form submission.

    Any ideas on how I can create the above subdomain from standard SSL port?

    Many thanks

    cpanelproxy also explains how to make it work with https - although I have not tried this myself.

    In their README, it says it cannot work. Their FAQ mentions it can. I tried what they suggested, it did not work. I wrote to the developer, no response. Signed up for their mailing list and posted, no response. Many thanks for any other ideas..

    Actually, is there any reason why this is not a standard option inside Cpanel?

    This seems to be one of the most brought up problems with cpanel and I see no hint of them fixing it.

    What is the main reason this often asked for feature is not added?

    Is no other control panel software offering this feature out of the box?

    I suppose you understand that if you would like to implement this option on a per domain basis you should have a seperate IP address per domain, as SSL is working only on IP based virtual hosts and not on Name Virtual Hosts.

    mod proxy could do this, but I haven't had any luck yet.
