    Hi,

    I wanted to trial Cpanel/WHM on a company server which sits behind a firewall.

    In order to acquire the license a valid public IP of the server on which Cpanel is to be installed has to be provided.

    I receive the following message.

    "Missing a valid IP. <ipaddress> has been flagged by the cPanel Billing Dept."

    How can I trial cpanel on a server behind a firewall?

    Thanks

    Thanks.

    The response that I received from cPanel is as follows:

    "we only license IP addresses that are publicly-visible & static. We do not license IP addresses that are dynamic, sticky, or internal."

    Internal - that rules me out.

    You can license this server with a couple of caveats:

    * You would need to license the external IP of your network. This IP must be static.

    * There can only be one cPanel server on your internal network. If our system detects more than one server, your license will be locked automatically.
