Hi, I'm trying to access cpanel webmail (via https://my.domain.com:2096/) using a proxy server, but the server keeps returning a 403 error.

One of the proxy servers I tried is this:
- removed -

Is it some security settings in WHM which prevents the proxy from accessing the site?
Thanks!

Does it show anything useful if you
Code:
#tail -f /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log
while refreshing the 403

Hello :)

It's possible the proxy server is blocking the connection. Have you tried accessing webmail over port 80? EX:

webmail.your.domain

Thank you.
