Account IP = Outgoing IP for that account?

    Hello

    If I have cPanel/user accounts, each with different IP addresses, when users from those accounts open sockets (through PHP sripts), why does the outcoming IP address appear as the main server's IP?

    I cannot quite remember if this always used to happen, but is there something which needs to be configured to get this going correctly?

    Thanks

    That seems to have no effect. Note that I'm talking about networking and server communication (ie. opening sockets) from PHP.

    I am sure I remember it used to work, but now suddenly I have a client complaining their dedicated IP does not seem to be the outgoing on for their connection. I checked by sending a http get query to one of those sites that tells your IP address, and it confirms it.

    Did you try /etc/mailips and /etc/mailhelo ?

    No I have not...this issue is unrelated to mail.
