Hi,

I'm trying to set up a DNS cluster with cPanel DNS Only. I've just installed it on one of my VPS' and I am having difficulty accessing the interface.

I intend to use the same domain as my main server, for the hostname, just a different prefix (example.example.com is main server, example1.example.com is DNS VPS), so the domain won't resolve yet, however I can't even access it from the IP:2087.

firewalld isn't active on this installations, so it's not a port forward issue, right?

Can someone help?

Hello @inteldigital,

Can you access the DNSOnly server using SSH? If so, run the following command to verify that cpsrvd is running on port 2087:

Code:
netstat -lnp | grep :2087
The output should look like this:

Code:
# netstat -lnp | grep :2087
tcp        0      0 0.0.0.0:2087            0.0.0.0:*               LISTEN      17948/cpsrvd (SSL)
If it's running on port 2087, try following the steps documented below to ensure the firewall rules on your system are not blocking the connection:

Thank you.
