    Hi,

    I'm trying to setup CPanel on our VPS to determine if it works on our Datacenter. I read the document that we need to open port 2089 for CPanel license server. However I don't want this port to open to the entire world, and wonder if there is any IP rule that would restrict access to this port since our datacenter has a strict Firewall policy.

    Please let me know.

    Thanks much,

    Hello,

    You can allow port 2089 for specific IP address using CSF firewall or adding rule in iptables.

    Thanks

    Hello :)

    I suggest installing a firewall management utility such as CSF:

    ConfigServer Security & Firewall

    Port 2089 is only added to the "Allow outgoing TCP ports" configuration by default in CSF.

    Thank you.
