    webmux changes all outgoing packets to its own IP address, but cpanel won't activate licenses for multiple servers coming from the same IP

    how do you resolve?

    -----------------------

    I guess Cpanel thinks 3 servers are sharing the same ip but they don't.

    There are 3 servers. One of them has Cpanel running correctly.

    The other 2 have unactivated license problem.

    root@server [~]# curl cpanel.net/myip/
    xxx.xx.xxx.203
    root@server [~]#

    All of the servers give me the same ip when i enter this command.

    It must be possible to use webmux or another load balancer with cpanel.

    Is there anybody else who uses cpanel with load balancing? How's your setup?

    You cannot do this, your license states that it is good for a SINGLE computer on an extrnal IP address. What you are doing is nating and cPanel does not support this.

    Each server has it's own unique license.

    I've three licenses for three servers. How do the other people use cpanel with the load balancing?

    Add in a SNAT rule.. So that the internal servers have their own unique external IP.

    We have a SNAT rule, which sets the ips for the internal 10.x.x.n address's to x.x.x.yn for the cpanel licence server subnet/range.. the rest of the connections are from the same ip..

    Easy enough provided you have the ability to modify the firewall rules.
