    CentOS has default iptables (firewall) rules that block access to cPanel ports out of the box. You can flush them with `iptables -F` and also remove them from /etc/sysconfig/iptables to prevent them from coming back on a system reboot or service restart.

    Just typing /etc/sysconfig/iptables will attempt to execute the file, and since it is a simple text configuration file, this is not possible (nor does it have the execute bit set by default for that reason).

    You need to open the file with a text editor such as vi (vim) or pico/nano and remove or augment the relevant rules (add rules opening cPanel ports or wipe out all of the default rules).
