    Greetings,

    I've been using WHM/Cpanel for years and have never had a problem doing account transfers from one server to another until now. I searched the forums first and found some useful help. I followed all of it but keep getting this message:

    Connecting to Remote Server Failed: Unable to connect to 123.45.67.89:1234: Bad file descriptor

    -I've checked to make sure I'm using the correct SSH port
    -I've disabled APF firewall
    -I've disabled Shell Fork bomb protection

    I'm at a loss. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

    Try firewall enabled but ensure corresponding ports are open. Ensure also that you can ssh manually to both servers (both ways).

    Corresponding ports and ssh manually on both servers. No work :(

    I'm now manually uploading backup files.

    Thank you!

    More then likely the server your trying to SSH out is blocking the port you need to SSH to. I had same issue but was quickly resolved by opening that port up in the TCP_OUT on the server your SSHing from. FYI i use CSF.
