Hello, I have installed cPanel/WHM on my home server and after a successful installation I'm unable to login to WHM using https://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:2087 as said in the installation guide (No login window appears). Can somebody help me? Thanks.

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.
