    Hello,

    I have a problem. CPANEL and WHM are installed on one of my servers. I would like to bind CPANEL and it's services (like cppop which i couldn't find config for) to just one adress IP. Atm i have 4 ip's and it's a bit annoying that CPANEL listens on all and makes a lot of other services to listen on all interfaces too. So the question is: How to bind CPANEL (and CPPOP) to just one IP adress (or interface), well actually 2 if you count localhost which is needed for webbased mail.

    Cheers

    Go on, have a guess
    AFAIK, you can't, at least not easily as it is meant to bind to all IP's. If you don't want connections on those IP addresses it would be simpler to block access to those ports on those IP's in iptables.

    Well i need those ports for other things. I have on 3rd ip for example Sun Java Messaging system which needs POP3 and all other mail related ports which cpanel happen to block. Most of the things like stunnel/imap i managed to bind to IP just this cppop i can't find any config or information about it. Any help would be appreciated.
