    Either the root account, or your local IP address, is being blocked by cphulkd. From the shell as root, run the following to disable cphulkd:

    Code:
    # /usr/local/cpanel/etc/init/stopcphulkd
    You can enable or disable cphulkd, and whitelist your local IP address, in the WebHost Manager in Home » Security Center » cPHulk Brute Force Protection. You can get your local IP address by browsing What Is My IP Address ® | Shows Your IP Address. .

    cphulkd is documented comprehensively here:
