    Hi all,
    I've seen cPanel with an FTP locking feature (lock by IP address). I would like to implement this feature on our new dedicated server but can't find the option anywhere.
    Is this something that we have to install?
    Thanks in advance.

    Hello iToke,

    Where have you seen this feature for an FTP lock, since it isn't an option that I've seen in any cPanel version that is currently being used nor is it an option that I've been able to find available in our internal cases for a feature being offered.

    We do have WHM > Host Access Control area where ftp service can be defined there. In that area, you can whitelist only a set of IPs for the machine (this would be for all accounts, though), then deny all other IPs. Alternatively, you can block port 21 but to only a set range of IPs to access it in the firewall itself.

    Thanks.

    Here's a screen shot of the FTP lock which is available when I log into our shared hosting account on Heart Internet. When I click on FTP accounts, I can also lock/unlock each account by an IP address -

    Hello,

    I am seeing this feature for first time in cPanel,

    I strongly believes this is a custom made feature by host.

    Just had a reply from the shared hosting company, that feature is only available within the eXtend control panel.
    Shame, I really like it!
