Thread: Cpanel Access

  1. #1

    Cpanel Access

    Hi,

    I would like to block external access to Cpanel through port 2082, however local access should be allowed. So the plan is to have a proxy setup on the server (which will be password protected) and then my team will use this to go to port 2082 and gain access to cpanel.

    Hope someone gets what I'm on about, and can point in the direction of a tutorial, or if its even possible.

    Regards

    This is pretty simple to do. You can use a hardware firewall and block access to port 2082 to all IPs, except from the allowed IPs, or you can use IPTables on the cPanel server and do the same thing.

    Install APF firewall on the server, it's easy to block ports altogether from external access, or you could limit it based on IP address.

    Wouldn't it be easier to just tick the box in tweak settings

    Since I don't see you wanting to block access to the control panel, just to the non-SSL ports
