    Outbound requests from the server default to use the server's primary IP address. We need all outbound requests to use the IP associated with the cpanel account. Is there a way to set this up?

    Thanks in advance.

    Outbound requests for what precisely? Mail or something else?

    Not mail, a connection to Facebook API.

    Do you have any further details on what type of request this happens to be? Is it on port 80 or what port precisely going outbound? The only way I can see this possibly happening would be to create a firewall rule that might do routing on a set port. Can you also explain why this is necessary to use the dedicated IP for this call rather than using the server's main IP?

    We are connecting to a webservice via cron that limits the number of connections per ip. We have multiple cpanel clients (each with a dedicated ip) on a single server and they are using up each others quota since cron ip is not unique. Traffic is on port 80 and 443.
