    Hi.

    I tried to block ports 2082,2086, 2095 on a cpanel machine but when I do, I can't login. I suspect it's because cpanel uses htaccess authentication.

    Are there any plans to move the login process to an embedded ssl page rather than the current method? I would like to disable the non-secure ports and eliminate any plain text transmission of user/pwd pairs.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Just allow localhost to connect to those ports and it will work.
