    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.
