    My company has a firewall and I am trying to access cPanel at eUKHosts who host my websites.

    I created a new mailing list. I see it listed with these links beside it:
    support@xyz.xyz Delete Change Password Modify

    When I click on the 'Modify' link it tries to take me to http://127.0.0.1/mailman/...etc which doesn't work/exist.

    The eUKHosts tech support cannot see this - they say they see the correct URL.

    Is there an issue with cPanel Version 11.24.4-RELEASE?

    http://cpanel.[mydomain].org.uk/frontend/x3/mail/lists.html

    Details...
    I tried https://www.example.com/cpanel and it said my domain had an invalid security certificate (only valid for the server name . host on which my website was!?).

    However, http://www.example.com/cpanel worked -- two choices were given and only the one that said "If you are behind a firewall and can not connect to port 2082" worked, the other was blocked.

    I tried both :2082 and :2083 as in your first example and they were both blocked.

    ...just to let you know, that I can access the mailing list if I use the URL for it (i.e. the one cPanel doesn't generate):
    http://preston.[my-host-company].com/mailman/admin/[mail-list-name]_[mydomain].org.uk

    The 127.0.0.1 issue may be due to the intermediary firewall. Accessing via cpanel.example.com uses an internal proxy ( internal to the server where your account is hosted ). Do you happen to know if your company firewall uses a proxy? Accessing a proxy through a proxy can cause issues like what you report.

    My browser must have an automatic proxy script set (.pac) file. Within it, are these lines:
    //UK Network with own Proxy
    if(shExpMatch(myIpAddress(), "192.168.112.*") ||
    shExpMatch(myIpAddress(), "192.168.114.*"))
    return "PROXY 192.168.112.4:80";

    So far, though, it is only the link to modify mailing lists that is posing a problem for me when I access all of cPanel's features from here at work.

    You might also experience issues with the various editors in the filemanager, as well as PHPMyAdmin.

    No, I don't. Used file manager fine to edit Wordpress config text file; and also have edited my wordpress databases using PHPMyAdmin.

    That's good. The might was predicated upon past reports of proxy-to-proxy issues.
