    Ok, here is my situation, I work for a non profit organization and we are about to rent a server running CPanel, before we do though I have been tasked with finding a way to access it from our network. I current have a server of my own (that I rent) and I cannot connect to Cpanel or WHM at all. I tried looking through the forums but founds mostly out of date info.

    We run 4 networks through a linux gateway firewall, and I have implemented the following rules:

    iptables -A FORWARD -s -d (server IP) -p tcp --dport 2083 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A INPUT -s -d (server IP) -p tcp --dport 2083 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A OUTPUT -s -d (server IP) -p tcp --dport 2083 -j ACCEPT
    But this didn't seem to work properly.' I only need the one network to have access, but I need to punch though the fire wall.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    cpanel/whm has got sub domains for those who are behind stricted firewalls so to use them just do for WHM replace with your domain and for cPanel just do :) i hope this helps.
