    Hi,

    My server got blacklisted by Symantec. When I check the reason, it sais : The host appears to be an open proxy.
    How can I fix it in CPanel/WHM ?


    Thank you,
    Andi Stancu

    Hello :)

    Were any additional details provided on why it detects an open proxy? For instance, is it because certain ports are open, or does it use a particular method of making that determination?

    Thank you.

    Per their FAQ page:

    SMTP authentication is required by default with cPanel, so authentication is required unless you have manually enabled "Antirelayd" in "WHM Home » Service Configuration » Service Manager". That being said, you could have a PHP script uploaded to an account that's used for sending email. After you investigate the matter, you can request they delist you through their form:

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your answer. In the beginning I thought it's a server settings, rather then a previous action who triggered the blacklist.

    Thank you for your help.
