    Ports and IP?

    I am really at a loss as the the question your asking here.

    cPanel uses a number of ports

    your servers ip address - you should already know that.
    if not do a simple dns lookup on your domain


    A simple search on the forums also would have yielded this for you

    port service protocol direction

    20 ftp tcp inbound/outbound

    21 ftp tcp,udp inbound/outbound

    22 ssh tcp inbound

    25 smtp tcp inbound/outbound

    26 smtp tcp inbound/outbound

    37 rdate tcp outbound

    43 whois tcp outbound

    53 DNS tcp/udp inbound/outbound
    (inbound is only needed if you run your own public DNS server)

    80 http tcp inbound/outbound

    110 pop3 tcp inbound

    113 ident tcp outbound

    143 imap4 tcp inbound

    443 https tcp inbound

    465 smtp tls/ssl tcp/udp inbound/outbound

    873 rsync tcp/udp outbound

    993 imap4 ssl tcp inbound

    995 pop3 ssl tcp inbound

    2077 webdav tcp/udp inbound/outbound

    2078 webdav ssl tcp/udp inbound/outbound

    2082 cpanel tcp inbound

    2083 cpanel ssl tcp inbound

    2086 whm tcp inbound

    2087 whm ssl tcp inbound

    2095 Webmail tcp inbound

    2096 Webmail SSL tcp inbound

    3306 mysql tcp (only if you need to connect remotely)

    6666 chat tcp inbound

    In most cases the Cpanel port number would be 2082. For the CPanel IP address you need to consult your hosting provider.

    Solution

    By default cPanel port is 2082 and 2083 for secure connection.If you are not sure about your server ip then first you need to DNS lookup for your domain or ping the domain to found out server ip from your local machine

    For ping refer following steps

    In Windows, select Start > Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt. This will give you a new window then insert the following command.

    ping yourdomainname.com

    It will give you server ip address. Then try to access cPanel with http://serveripadress:2082 or https://serveripaddress:2083

    OK, so from a security perspective, how do you change the port numbers for WHM and CPanel?

    Any hacker with half a brain would know to conduct a bot attack to ports :2096 and :2087 since your settings are universal.

    Can these ports numbers be customized so that it would deter a bot attack?

    Thanks

    From a security perspective, it's not really necessary.

    Any hacker with half a brain will be able to probe your firewall and find out where the new ports are anyway.

    If you're concerned about hackers brute-forcing your user/passwords, then consider installing CSF (http://www.configserver.com/cp/csf.html) which will detect failed login attempts and firewall the IP address.

    Very nice system, and I highly recommend it! :)
