    I know that officially virtualbox is not supported. I don't intend to use virtualbox for production environment. I am planning to use virtualbox for training purpose.

    I have installed cPanel on VB running centos 6.7. The firewalls are configured. /scripts/configure_firewall_for_cpanel

    However I am not able to access the WHM from host machine. I think it requires some port forwarding but I am not sure. Can someone point me in the right direction. Thanks you very much in advance for your help.

    Hello :)

    Have you verified cPanel/WHM are listening on ports 2082/2083/2086/2087? You can verify this with a command such as:

    Code:
    netstat -lnp | grep :208
    Thank you.

    Thanks. It requires port forwarding from virtualbox.
    After quick googling I found this howtogeek.com/122641/how-to-forward-ports-to-a-virtual-machine-and-use-it-as-a-server.

    Hope this will help for anyone having same issue.
