    Well I tried all of them above but still no logon window appears. However the default cPanel page appear when going to http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/. All ports required by cPanel are open.

    Go on, have a guess
    If you do the following are the WHM/cPanel ports open:

    netstat -lpn

    If so, then you may well have an iptables firewall installed. Try running:

    /etc/init.d/iptables stop

    Then see if you can connect to the non-SSL or SSL port for WHM.

    You are going to use some type of firewall right?

    I suggest APF - google it.
