    Cpanel Ports --> firewall

    hi, i'm going to install a firewall (PMFirewall) on my server (redhat 7.2)
    and i need to know what Ports do i have to leave Open?

    till now i will just open this ports:
    [quote:08111cffa2]
    21 ---& FTP ---& TCP
    22 ---& SSH ---& TCP
    25 ---& SMTP ---& TCP
    53 ---& DNS ---& TCP & UDP
    80 ---& HTTP ---& TCP
    110 ---& POP3 ---& TCP
    143 ---& IMAP ---& TCP
    443 ---& HTTPs ---& TCP
    993 ---& sIMAP ---& TCP
    995 ---& sPOP3 ---& TCP
    2082 ---& Cpanel ---& TCP
    2086 ---& WHM ---& TCP
    2095 ---& WebMail ---& TCP
    3306 ---& MySQL ---& TCP
    7786 ---& Ichange ---& TCP
    6666 ---& Melange ---& TCP
    [/quote:08111cffa2]

    A - is there any ports i did'nt add? and what about Cpanel update, dose it use particular port?


    =================================


    what about the ports (1,2083,2084,2087,111,2096,456) that i see open on my `netstat -an` ex:

    [quote:08111cffa2]
    tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:1 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN
    tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:2083 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN
    tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:2084 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN
    tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:2087 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN
    tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:111 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN
    tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:2096 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN
    tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:465 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN
    [/quote:08111cffa2]

    B - do i have to open any ot them on the firewall?



    =================================

    3 that you missed:

    2083 ---& secure Cpanel
    2087 ---& secure WHM
    2096 ---& secure WebMail

    There could be more.. but I noticed these.

    It's 2080 through 2099

    when we've ranted back and forth at each other, bdraco has spawned that range as &leave those open and you'll be fine& -ish

    Good luck.

    ;)

    If you are also firewalling off outbound traffic, which I would recommend, you need to make sure and leave Rsync open otherwise, CPanel will not update correctly. That is along with the other usual ports...

    Why is port 3000 running 'ppp'? I also notice 3001 open on my box running 'nessusd'.

    Thanks,
    Jaz

    Those aren't normal for a cpanel box, nor are they cpanel instilled....

    I just did some checking around, and 3000/3001 are definitely not normal. 3306 (mysql) is the only common tcp port in the 3,000 range for a cpanel box.
    Default configuration wise, that is.
