Hi. I haven't seen any postings about this so perhaps I just have something messed up on my server.

Since upgrading to cpanel 11 we can't access any email unless the IP we use is in the hosts.allow file.

I get "The server responded: -ERR Dropping connnection from 161.184.201.42 because of tcp_wrappers'"

This is causing all kinds of grief as it's summer and I need to check my email while on the road and unless I find the IP that I'm on and have a tech add it to the hosts.allow file then I'm out of luck.

Security is nice but this is overkill for checking mail.

Anyone?

Thanks. Al


WHM 11.2.0 cPanel 11.6.0-R15076
CENTOS Enterprise 4.5 x86_64 - WHM X v3.1.0

the hosts.allow file has this line:
# Allow all sendmail traffic - JYY
sendmail : ALL

sorry to bump an old thread but I have the same situation - I have added

cpaneld : ALL
webmaild : ALL
whostmgrd : ALL

but users are still getting tcp_wrappers errors
