    Hello,

    did some searching on this earlier and couldn't really find an answer to this. We have a few AOL customers that have problems logging into their Cpanel due to IP changes all the time.

    In the WHM we currently have the Cookie IP validation setting to loose so they can log in. In the security setting is states:
    Code:
    Cookie IP validation [?]
    Validate the IP addresses used in all cookie-based logins. This will limit the ability 
    of attackers who capture cPanel session cookies to use them in an exploit of the 
    cPanel or WebHost Manager interfaces. For this setting to have maximum effectiveness, 
    proxydomains should also be disabled.
    
    My question is how do you disable the proxy domains as it suggests ??

    thx's

    Mike

    Hello Mike,

    There are 3 proxy subdomain settings in Tweak Settings in WHM (findable by entering proxy in the search field at the upper right of that area):

    If you set these all to "Off" and then run "/scripts/proxydomains" in root SSH command line, you should be able to disable proxy subdomains by doing that.

    Thanks!
