Cpanel by default and APF by default will allow dynamic IPs with no problem. It has nothing to do with what IP accesses your server. The ports used for Cpanel are 2082 and 2083 and webmail is 2095 and 2096, they have to allow those ports to be accessed directly through their firewall. The only time we have had clients not able to access their Cpanel was when their provider firewalls were blocking the Cpanel ports.

Nothing really if the service provider is blocking the ports, or least nothing you should probably try to do.

I have heard good things about http://cpanelproxy.net/ here in the forums.

This will probably help, some places block ports with firewalls and the above will get you around it. It is simple to install :) No I have nothing to do with the project, just set it up for our resellers that might be behind firewalls and it works.
