    Hi folks, have a quick question.

    I want to run cpanel in my centos VM. Right now I have a static IP from my ISP using PPPoE. The static IP ends up on the host interface. The centos VM ethernet interface get's a private 192.168.x.x address.

    As my license is related to the public IP, will giving a private IP to the instance of cpanel running on centos be ok?

    The only other way to get the public IP directly on the Cpanel instance would be to either initiate the PPPoE session from the host but find a way to bridge the connection to the VM. Or find a way to launch a PPPoE session from the VM directly

    What do folks running cpanel in a VPS normally do here?

    Thanks, looks like it's the public IP on the VM instance then.

    I took a look at the examples and I have a question about the nameservers you set in WHM.

    The domain I will be using for my cpanel is currently the nameservers from cloudflare, dlna.ns.cloudflare.com and norm.ns.cloudflare.com however from my domain reseller account, I created a number of custom name sellers. ns1.mydomain.com and ns2.mydomain.com

    These will be the ones that my customers buying domains from me will get. So which nameservers should I put in WHM, the one that my customers will use or the one my cpanel/WHM is using?
