firewall blocking cpanel login

i just setup guarddog firewall, works fine, good results from [shields up] at - but i can't login to my website cpanel.

i checked the boxes for http, https, ftp, ssh, kerberos, and anything else i could find that seemed relevant to remote, secure login but still can't login to cpanel. only works if i disable firewall altogether.

is there a specific combination of protocols to permit so i can login to my cpanel without diabling the firewall everytime.

also- in guarddog there are two sets of protocols- internet and local- do i have to check all boxes in both zones?

thanks in advance

from what I understand CPANEL runs on a unique port. I could be wrong but 2082?? so you will need to open up that port. If the UI doesnt allow then read some stuff on iptables. the basic command will be:

iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -m tcp -p tcp -dport 2082 -j ACCEPT

where eth0 is the ethernet nic you are accessing through... try that out

no luck

iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -m tcp -p tcp -dport 2082 -j ACCEPT

where eth0 is the ethernet nic you are accessing through... try that out
this didn't work- but then again i don't know what (eth0) 'ethernet nic' means
i'm on dialup- external serial port modem- i tried googling around for ethernet nic and i don't have a clue.

i noticed on my cpanel it says :2083 so i tried that port with above command as well- still no luck

i tried iptables --help, and a few variations of above command, all with no luck

thanks for the help, any other clues?

iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 2082 -j ACCEPT

Try this one , or try to allow port 2082 in your filewall configuration file.
