    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 I tried looking through the forums but founds mostly out of date info.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:

    Code:
    iptables -A FORWARD -s 192.168.3.0/0 -d (server IP) -p tcp --dport 2083 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A INPUT -s 192.168.3.0/0 -d (server IP) -p tcp --dport 2083 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A OUTPUT -s 192.168.3.0/0 -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.

    Regards
    Matthew

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