    Whats ports/protocol needs a DNS only Server to properly connect to Cpanel for updates and serve of course its purpose , DNS server.

    I would like to close all ports and just open the ones needed for dns only.

    I believe you need the ssl WHM (2087), SSH (use non-standard port for security reasons), DNS (53,953), smtp (25), and rdate (37) port opened. That's it.

    I posted this a year ago, but just in case anybody needs to know...

    I have Cpanel DNS only ruining on EC2, and the only incoming public port that i have open on the hardware firewall is 53(UDP/TCP)
    and it has been working fine since last year. (2087 and SSH port are open only for my IP)

    Thanks, TCP and UDP have a different status in the market TCP is powerful than UDP. and TCP need DNS version, which is bieng used at the internation level.
