I just signed up for a new reseller hosting account and I can't get to the control panel from behind my company's firewall.. Has anyone found a good workaround for this? Proxies don't seem to be doing the trick.

I like to think that workplaces have a firewall that prevents access to certain sites for a reason and working around it could result in negative effects, and it's not worth losing your job over accessing your cPanel even when you're not at home.

Besides, I've never known a firewall that can actually block websites.

Your best bet would be to search Google for one of those block remover sites.

I think that's debatable, knowing the network guys here... :wink:

What happens is that they block ports 2086 and 2087, which are the ones required for cPanel to load.

Ok, so after some more research, here's a better question:

Has anyone tried using cpanelproxy? It seems to be a way to bypass the firewall by going through port 80.

Jameson,

cPanelProxy should work for you. You'll need to install it onto your hosting directory, and then use http://www.yourdomain.com/whm to access WHM.

Cool, thanks for the tip. I installed PHP Coin and I think I should be able to access that from behind the firewall, so I might be ok for now, depending on how much it can do. Seems to be pretty powerful software from what I've read so far.

I do like the comment about it's not worth losing your job. Just work on the website from when you get home.

Geez I wonder why they do that. It's not like anything other than CPanel uses those ports.
