Anyone else disappointed cPanel techs won't touch your firewall?

We do have a list of ports that are required for cPanel to function properly in our documentation here:


and tools like CSF usually open those by default when installed on a cPanel system. For additional configurations, you'd have to make manual adjustments to the configuration.

I read the articles and could not figure out why the ports were not opened up. But the tech said they weren't. If I were confident enough to touch my own nft tables I would have.

This sounds like a perfect case where hiring a professional isn't a bad idea. It's no different than any other service - plumbing, electrical work, auto maintenance - no everyone knows everything about everything. If you're not confident in performing the work yourself, there's zero shame in asking or hiring someone.
