    The name says it. I am tyring to connect to my cpanel but my college has many STRICT firewalls. I have the ability to fill out a form to open ports (at their disgression) but i need certain info i am unable to locate. My web host sent me to you guys.

    The info i need can be found here:
    www.nwmissouri.edu/compserv/CLIENTCOMPUTING/Firewall_Forms/Firewall_Ports_Request_Form.pdf

    I need all data regarding ports and the like so i can possibly get back to using your kickin software. Otherwise i will be forced to close my site due to the inability to fix MySQL dbs and things of the nature. Thanks more than you could imagine, in advance.

    You need ports 2086 and 2087 for WHM and ports 2082 and 2083 for cpanel.

    Your host could also look at installing www.cpanelproxy.net/ which provides access to the above through the standard port 80. You go to http://cpanel.yourdomain.com instead of www.yourdomain.com/cpanel (which normally redirects to http://www.yourdomain.com:2082/blah).

    This URL has documentation, you could put the effort in to actually go and look for yourself under http://www.cpanel.net - http://www.cpanel.net/docs/whm/ .

    Thank you much. I appreciate this a ton. And sorry about it not ebing in the right place...

    And as for 'you could put the effort in to actually go and look for yourself under', i put in a good 2 hours searching. And another 3 hours with my provider. I wanted to make absolute sure i covered all bases. Because i only get one shot at this form.

    I got two emails back from the network admins. One saying that im tyrign to run a serv and two, them realizing im trying to connect to a cpanel serving system. I could not find and i quote 'explicit information at their website that addresses the remote host connection'. And i am failing to find information myself (in the form of a link, an exact link) telling what ports to unblock. And a link to this forum page wont work @_@

    Hes what comes up, and its nothing i need.


    Search results for "ports"

    I use the APF firewall rules on my server, what ports should I allow ?
    What ports should be open if I'm running my cPanel server behind a firewall?
    Why do I see two transports in the log when I have spamassasin enabled?

    Found 3 FAQ(s) for your query.

    The one i THOUGHT might work is:
    ===============================
    Q: I use the APF firewall rules on my server, what ports should I allow ?

    A:
    # Common ingress (inbound) TCP ports
    IG_TCP_CPORTS=" 20,21,22,25,26,53,80,110,143,443,465,993,995,2082,
    2083,2086,2087,2095,2096,3306,6666"

    # Common ingress (inbound) UDP ports
    IG_UDP_CPORTS="21,53,465,873"

    # Common ICMP (inbound) types
    # 'internals/icmp.types' for type definition; 'all' is wildcard for any
    IG_ICMP_TYPES="3,5,11,0,30,8"

    # Common egress (outbound) TCP ports
    EG_TCP_CPORTS="21,25,26,37,43,53,80,113,465,873,2089,3306"

    # Common egress (outbound) UDP ports
    EG_UDP_CPORTS="20,21,53,465,873"

    # Common ICMP (outbound) types
    # 'internals/icmp.types' for type definition; 'all' is wildcard for any
    EG_ICMP_TYPES="all"

    Thanks to Billy Vierra for the info.
    ==========================

    But my enterpretation for that as well as the net admin is that cpanel is ON THIS SERVER (being my computer; Were not allowed to have servers in our dorms so i would be in violation of the rules of my network contract). Unless i can provide a page stating that im trying to connect to cpanel on a remote server then im screwed.
    --------------------------
    -EDIT-
    --------------------------
    My web host CREATED a page for me saying what i needed to help me out so we should be good. SRY for the trouble. =P
