Hello :)

Do you notice this error message randomly, or does it happen when you perform a specific action in cPanel/WHM?

Thank you.

this error in the log added every minute without me doing anything in cPanel,

I check around and it is in exim_mainlog too, maybe it is related to email sending (our emails working fine though). This 3 lines always together, happen at least once a minute.

2014-02-09 04:05:35 SMTP connection from [127.0.0.1]:44935 (TCP/IP connection count = 2)
2014-02-09 04:05:36 send: Connection refused at /usr/local/cpanel/Cpanel/Linux/Netlink.pm line 174.
2014-02-09 04:05:36 SMTP connection identification H=localhost A=127.0.0.1 P=44935 U=root ID= S=root B=identify_local_connection

Couldn't find anything from Google too, safe to ignore this?

Hello,

Do you have root access to the server? If so could you please open a support ticket using the link in my signature?

One of our analysts will be happy to check this out for you. I just looked at the Netlink.pm module on a test server and it does seem like it is a networking issue. Please post the ticket number here so that we can update this thread accordingly.

just want to update, this server had some hard drive problem last week, so instead of checking on this problem, we have decided to migrate to another server

thanks!
