CPanel pro reporting IP wrongly in "request support"?

    In CPanel pro, in the request support section, when the e-mail is sent, it always reports the sender's IP address as 127.0.0.1; it does the same on the main page when it says "last login".

    Anyone else notice this?

    Go on, have a guess
    That's because you're logging in through the stunnel connections into cPanel, i.e. port 2083. Because of the way stunnel works with SSL encryption, the application at the end (cPanel) only sees the connection coming from 127.0.0.1 and, according to cPanel, cannot determine your IP address. If you were to login to cPanel through port 2082 (non-SSL) twice, you'd see the connecting IP address.
