    Good day folks, and I'm happy to be a new cPanel/WHM administrator. Unfortunately, I'm a newb, and I'm having 2 small problems:

    1) I installed cPanel without errors, and was surprised at how smooth and relatively quick it went. However, the next step after installation is to access WHM for the first time at either http://www.yourdomain.com:2086 or https://www.yourdomain.com:2087. Neither of these work for me. I also tried http://www.yourdomain.com/whm, and that doesnt work.

    I used lynx locally, and was able to access it with http://127.0.0.1:2086 and also using my internal address of http://192.168.1.104:2086 However, I cannot access the internal URL from my remote pc which is on the same lan. So that local IP is accessible from the host machine, but not from a remote machine on the same network. Obviously, I cant access either domain name or IPs from the internet, outside of my network. I am able to access http://www.yourdomain.com on port 80, and that shows me the cPanel "no page setup here" type message. So I know I can contact the server externally and internally, but just not on ports 2086 and 2087. I do not believe this is a router/firewall issue or windows firewall because I am able to access 2086/2087 for whm at another web hosting company. I think it has to be something local on my cpanel hosting server that is only allowing local access to those ports. My Linux experience isnt extensive enough to know where to look :-(

    2) When cpanel starts or restarts, one of the services it starts up [FAILED]..the INTERCHANGE service is what is failing. Not sure what that service is for, or if its initially important. Keep in mind, I havent even signed in for the first time to WHM, so it just may not be a configured service yet.

    3) When I issue the command: # service cpanel status It shows the INTERCHANGE, STUNNEL, and QRUNNER are all stopped. Is this normal upon initial installation?

    I hope once I'm able to get past the 2086/2087 issue that I'll be mostly good to go, as I have some experience with WHM as a reseller before. Any help you guys can provide would be greatly appreciated! :D

    Hi,

    Try iptables -F

    That usually does the trick :)

    YOU RAWK!!! the iptables -F worked like a charm.

    And ideas on the service that failed, or the others that are stopped that I mentioned before?

    I don't know to be honest - I know Interchange can be enabled/disabled through Service Monitor in WHM, but the others may just need configuring by cPanel during the initial configuration.
