    I noticed that xfer streming transfer during account copy is performed on port 2086, regardless the option "Use SSL" is checked.

    Is that a bug...?

    I've just discovered that the "Use SSL" option on the copy single account page seems to be the wrong way round. If it's ticked, it tries to stream the homedir over HTTP (and decides xfer streaming isn't supported if the Require SSL option is enabled in WHM on the source server). If it's unticked, it uses HTTPS and works fine with Require SSL turned on.

    The copy multiple account page seems to work correctly, or at least, it uses HTTPS if the Use SSL option is ticked. I didn't try disabling it on that page though, so maybe it just uses HTTPS either way.

    Would you be able to post your cPanel version?

    Code:
    cat /usr/local/cpanel/version
    I would like to test this in EDGE as well, but I wanted to know the existing tier and version you are using right now.

    As an FYI, this problem is still not resolved. If you have the box checked "Use SSL" it still streams over the non-SSL WHM port of 2086.

    For me, this caused streaming to fail due to the donor server not having that port opened. To fix, the donor server was changed to have TCP port 2086 Outbound allowed -- which solved my problem with streaming for now.

    P.S. This is with the single account transfer function. I can't make Multiple account transfer work no matter what I do. :-(
