Hello everyone,

I have apf running on a cpanel server. However, I am getting the following error when I try to access the main page. Dropping the firewall makes everything work fine again.

Timeout while trying to fetch http://web.cpanel.net/whmnews/nph-i...-STABLE_120&os=Linux&osver=2.6.9-42.0.2.ELsmp...[a fatal error or timeout occurred while processing this directive]Unable to fetch Web Host Manager news. The News server may be down or unreachable.

I understand you have to open some ports to allow cpanel. I have already did those (they're on the 20xx something range).

What I'd need right now is the specific port that WHM news uses so I can open it up.

Thanks,
Matt
