    In the logs of our (CSF) firewall I find rules like this:
    Jan 7 04:38:54 31.186.175.143 52573 out 208.74.121.62 443 TCP

    So our server at 31.186.175.143:52573 is trying to reach 208.74.121.62:443
    A traceroute to 208.74.121.62 shows me that it's accessed via the cpanel.net domain

    What is the cause of this request?

    Hello :)

    208.74.121.62 is the IP address for updatelogdrop.cpanel.net. cPanel collects anonymous usage data for information such as:

    Version of cPanel before cPanel update starts
    Version of cPanel after cPanel Update finishes
    Run time of cPanel Update
    Result code of cPanel Update (Success or Failure)


    Thank you.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I'll whitelist that IP/port.
