Can't access a cpanel using https on port 2083



  • Hi I have the  following configuration internet–----> cisco------>pfsense 2.03 with squid 2.7, squidguard and lightsquid, and on the firewall rules tab is lan to any rule so there shouldn't be any problems, on wan interface I have no firewall rule, and I can't access https://cpanel:2083
    Without the pfsense active there is no problem accessing it  .
    Please help me out

    You can only use a URL like that (not a FQDN) if the Cisco box is providing DNS. Since your clients are behind pfSense they are not (I assume). You can probably add a DNS overide entry in DNS forwarder. You could access the Cisco box by it's IP address directly.

    Edit: Maybe I have misunderstood what cpanel is in this case.  :-\



  • cpanel is the webaccess to the  Linux box hosting my email server on the outside and the exact link is https://server20.whmpanels.com:2083/
    and yes when i bypass the pfsense proxy I have no problem reaching it, but I was wondering how can I access  it using pfsense proxy. the proxy is using public dns server , and inside network has its own dc which provides dns.

    Ah yes I read that too quickly and thought you were trying to get access to the web interface of your Cisco box.  :-[

    So you can access the cpanel login with the full link but not the shortcut?
    I would expect a shortened address like that to work only if the local dns knows about it.
