    Thirty, I need some help with modify on my CS firewall. I have a list of some securities that I would need to check to make some changes:
    Code:
    Firewall Check
    [B]PT_ALL_USERS[/B] option check This option ensures that almost all Linux accounts are checked with Process Tracking, not just the cPanel ones
    Server Check
    
    [B]Check for cxs[/B] You should consider using [B][U][URL='http://www.configserver.com/cp/cxs.html']cxs[/URL][/U][/B] to scan web script and ftp uploads and user accounts for exploits uploaded to the server
    
    [B]Check for IPv6[/B] IPv6 appears to be enabled [ifconfig: [B]xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx[/B]]. If ip6tables is installed, you should enable the csf IPv6 firewall (IPV6 in csf.conf)
    
    SSH/Telnet Check
    [B]Check SSH[/B] on non-standard port You should consider moving SSH to a non-standard port [currently:22] to evade basic SSH port scans. Don't forget to open the port in the firewall first!
    
    
    WHM Settings Check
    [B]Check nameservers[/B] Unable to resolve nameserver [ns1.xxxxxxxxxxx.net]
    [B]Check nameservers[/B] Unable to resolve nameserver [ns2.xxxxxxxxxxx.net]
    
    
    Can you please advise me with what I have to do to pass each of the security check?

    Thanks!!!
