    Hey guys,
    We had an issue this morning where everyone in our office could not login to their email and I could not logon to my server via the web interface.

    I figured out that our ISP changed our IP address as it is dynamic this morning and after I flushed the CP HULK DB everything worked fine, my concern is our clients may have the same issue going forward.

    I can't understand why it would do this though?

    Apologies as this may be a stupid question however I am new to cPanel and as always I have turned to you guys for support.

    If you have dynamic IP, you could create a class C or B entry.
    My IP at home changes almost daily, so I have a Class B entry.

    Not sure about the flush though, maybe one of the experts will be along shorty to advise.

    Hello :)

    Documentation on cPhulk brute force detection, including information on whitelisting your IP address and how it determines when a brute force attempts occurs is available at:

    cPHulk Brute Force Detection

    Note that cPanel version 11.48 introduces some changes to cPhulk:

    11.48 - cPHulk Brute Force Detection

    Thank you.
