    I noticed after configuring CSF and finishing server WHM settings.
    When i try to use wget Google i get an error:

    resolving google.com.. Failed: Name or service not known.

    I have changed the nameservers which worked earlier today:
    8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4

    Nothing seems to work.. i hope somebody can point me the right direction.

    Because this is making me angry.

    Its working when csf is disabled ? You can disable csf using csf -x and enable it again using csf -e

    i have managed to secure CSF Firewall with 138 Points out of 139. the 1 is a paid module.

    Yes that would be great. You can also take advantage of csf alert option if you would like to know what happening on your server. Like which IP is blocked, who logged into server using root ssh etc

    You just have to specify your email under LF_ALERT_TO= in the cpanel config /etc/csf/csf.conf

    Great i have restarted the server. But i have one question i hope you know how i can fix this with a command.
    I have installed a GUI in SSH so i can enter my server edit everything like a external computer. However when i open"This computer" and directory ETC it is opening NEW windows.. how can i disable this?

    Hello :)

    It's generally not recommended to install a GUI such as Gnome on your server. You will likely encounter issues that fall outside the scope of support of cPanel, and some of the installed packages may interfere with services managed by cPanel.

    Thank you.
