Hello kukon,

The reason why you are having issues with your server is because you are running cPanel behind a NAT. NAT setups are NOT supported by cPanel. cPanel requires a publicly facing ip as stated in cPanel's system requirements.

However many users have had success with custom configurations to allow for NAT environments. I have compiled a list of helpful resources on NAT setups below.

Good Luck. I hope you're up and running soon. :)
