    I've seen this ports open in CSF Firewall after installing by default. Are really necessary for cPanel 11?
    Im using RHEL 4

    Thanks

    it is a tool for making, change or delete documents remotely. This happens directly on the server without ftp or something else.

    So.. if I dont plan to create or delete accounts remotely, i never should use that tool... and of course, never open those ports at the firewall.. ;), right ? Are you sure there are no other functions for this tool ?

    Thanks

    If you close the ports, then none of your customers will be able to use the WebDisk feature of cPanel 11. WebDisk is so users have so-called drive-letter read/write access to their websites without going through FTP.

    If you do close the ports, be sure to disable this feature via Feature Manager to avoid any technical support headaches from users being unable to use this functionality.

    It's for documents, not accounts.

    cPanel's Web Disk option uses WebDAV, so if you want to allow your users to use Web Disk, you need to open those ports.

    Edit: ^--- d'oh :)

    They still open after removed from firewall...

    2077/tcp open unknown
    2078/tcp open unknown


    #lsof -i:2077
    COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE NODE NAME
    cpdavd 5416 root 5u IPv4 13781 TCP *:2077 (LISTEN)

    #lsof -i:2078
    COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE NODE NAME
    cpdavd 5416 root 6u IPv4 13782 TCP *:2078 (LISTEN)


    I tought killing the pid and thats all, but how can I know if that wont start again after reboot or restarting cPanel ?

    Thanks.

    Disabling a feature in Feature Manager will not automatically disable any daemons required for that service to work.

    There shouldn't be any harm leaving them running if you don't want them used as long as you block the ports.

    /usr/local/cpanel/etc/init/stopcpdavd will stop it until reboot. You'd have to edit /etc/init.d/cpanel and comment out the line that starts cpdavd, but that script could get overwritten by a cpanel update. I'm also not sure if anything cpanel related uses cpdavd that might break.

    Webdisk only used for browising your home dir

    you can't remove / copy or get a control of your dirs unlike FTP
