    Hello,
    I have a question about the 20** ports open on cPanel.
    This is my question.. can the insecure ports be closed ? I just want to keep open the ssl ports for logins in WHM/cpanel/webmail.. Have anyone tried this ? Can be done just blocking ports from APF ?

    Thanks buddy, and, yes, I think the same, but I don't need a "should work", I need to know if some have tried this before and had no problems with logins,updates or another kind of things... anyone ?

    Go on, have a guess
    Yes, you can simply block those ports using any iptables script, including APF. The only port you have to take care with for inbound traffic is the SSL port 2087 if you're using DNS clustering.
