    Those good people at PIPEX have decided to block servers that use the ports allocated by cPanel as a source of possible IRC and DDOS attacks - so if you use servers that are routed via PIPEX - GXNetworks - beware if you suddenly find your server inaccessible - and check that it hasn't been blocked by PIPEX core people - as they don't even have the courtesy to tell you they are blocking it

    The only way looks to turn off the Chat feature and all IRC ports on your servers - anyone else had the same problem
