    [FIXED]How do I close insecure ports (SSL question)

    If recently installed the free-ssl. Everything works great. Cpanel and WHM are reachable at https://mydomain.com/~username/cpanel
    But it's also still posible to use the old path use http and not https. How should I solve this problem?

    Close the ports with your firewall ;)

    Hi-
    iptables should do the trick for you, assuming that you're running linux with a recent kernel. check the firewall howtos at www.tldp.org and also check the iptables manpage (type "man iptables" at an ssh prompt)
    I hope that's helpful.

    It works fine here.
    I test it and it works.

    You get a email when there is a "attack" and it sends automaticly an email to the owner of the ip that is attacking.

    This readme helps with the conf.




    Read me anti dos

    Trust me, use the anti-dos feature.

    Read my security checklist in my sig on how to install APF.

    Allright.
    I have the apf installed and have read the readme on the anti dos. I just wasn't sure to use it or not. So you're saying there are no side-effects, not on the server load too?
