Hi,

I've been running APF on my server for a few years and for the first time I'm having difficulty with cpanel's update servers.

When I run:

#host httpudate.cpanel.net, I get

;; Truncated, retrying in TCP mode.
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached


When I stop apf, everything is fine I get the full list of ips.
So, I don't think the server has problem resolving the ips.

Can anyone help please.

OK,

I run

#/scripts/cpanelsync httpupdate.cpanel.net /cpanelsync/RELEASE/scripts /scripts

and now I see all the ips when I do

#host httpudate.cpanel.net

:)

I'm back to square one again.

All I can say, it when APF is stopped, everything is fine, but I don't know why yet.
