    Hi,

    The last two days /scripts/upcp output starts with the following line on all of my servers :

    Code:
    rdate: couldn't connect to host rdate.cpanel.net: Connection refused
    
    Manually accessing it shows the following output :

    Code:
    root@xxxxxx [~]# rdate rdate.cpanel.net
    rdate: couldn't connect to host rdate.cpanel.net: Connection refused
    root@xxxxxx [~]#
    root@xxxxxx [~]# rdate -s rdate.cpanel.net
    root@xxxxxx [~]# rdate rdate.cpanel.net
    rdate: [rdate.cpanel.net]       Fri Jul 28 08:55:29 2006
    
    It looks like it's sometimes able to access rdate.cpanel.net and sometimes not.

    Any ideas what this can be? E.g. are the servers blocked by one or more of the rdate.cpanel.net servers?

    Thanks.

    If you have a firewall , just open the outbound port 37 (tcp and udp).
