Enable cPanel port via SnapGar SG300 router

Specs: XP SP3, Any
Hi

I am able to access a cPanel of my domain from home and friend's house ,,,,means there are two different types of routers.

Neither me nor my friend has enabled port 2082 via router's firewall,,,,I do not why !!!!

At work I tried to access cPanel (using Mozilla and IE
) of my domain by typing in this :

http://fakedomain.org.au/cPanel

Error message : page not found.

through my google search I found below nice tutorial and I tried to configure my SnapGear router SG300 similar to it, but no joy

This is what I did

First of all, shouldn't it be incoming in the packed filter configuration?
You try to connect to that local service, so for the firewall it's incoming trafic.
The URL you have to use is:
http://fakedomain.org.au:2082/cpanel

>>http://fakedomain.org.au:2082/cpanel<<

Please compare the quote above with what have been said in this link below
http://wiki.jumba.com.au/wiki/Acces...


>>First of all, shouldn't it be incoming in the packed filter configuration? <<

I will try for inbound rather than outbound, but again compare above quote with what have been said in the below (from the same link above) :
[quote]
Source Port 0 ~ 66535
Destination Port 2082 ~ 2082
Inbound Block
Outbound Allow

Look at this:

What do you think does inbound for port 2082 mean?

>>>>http://fakedomain.org.au:2082/cpanel<<
Now this is confirmed we either use this
http://fakedomain.org.au:2082 or http://fakedomain.org.au:/cpanel


>>Destination Port 2082 ~ 2082
Inbound Block
Outbound Allow<<
Comparing to your link that you have posted and the above quote from the same source that you refered to it do you thing the above is typo ? although I am going to try allowing inbound traffic and see how it goes.

I guess it is a typo.
Look, it's a local service, just like web server itself.
If you'd like to access a local web server from the internet, you have to allow inbound traffic to port 80.

So ask yourself, where the difference is.
It doesn't matter whether it's HTTP, FTP, SMTP, or in your case cPanel.
It's a local service you'd like to access from the internet.

<<
Just for clarification I forgot to mention that our work's domain is hosted with another company not with our work's server.

And I am trying from work through interner to access cpanel of our domain which is hosted with other company.


Any way this is my new configuration for inbound traffic it did not work as well

Ah, ok that shines another light on it.
Ok, if you only try to access cPanel from you local lan to a server hosted in the internet, the configuration is incorrect.
I guess, the picture shows the router settings of your local router, right?
So if your router also filters outgoing traffic by default (but I doubt), you need the outgoing filter rule.

So the problem is not at your local side, but at the server side hosted by that company.
I guess there is also running a firewall, that has to be configured.
Do you have any kind of access to that server right now?
And how can you connect to that server, to configure it?
Is it a windows server or linux server, running there?

Yes it is the our router at work or we can call it the local router

>>I guess there is also running a firewall, that has to be configured.

This is not the case because I would have been able to access the cpanel from my home and from my friend's home,,,,if it has to be configured I should not be able to access the cpanel from the first place ,,,,,Don't u agree with that ?

>>Do you have any kind of access to that server right now?
<<
No I do not have an access to it.

>>Is it a windows server or linux server, running there?<<
It is Linux.

Thanks

Ah ok, so if you already have access to cPanel at home, it is a problem of the router settings.
Have you looked into the protocol of the router and while trying to access cPanel at work?
In the routers log, you may get a hint of what's going wrong.

Hi Paul

What I did nslookup fakedomain.org.au,,,,the resolved ip address is 2xx.xxx.60.89

At work I typed in : http://2xx.xxx.60.89/cpanel into an address bar of a browser.

I was able to access cpanel for our website.

Now my question shared hosting will have all websites on the same IP, my case the ip address is 2xx.xxx.60.89,,,and this is called : " name based virtual host "

And since cpanel uses name based virtual host, why when I typed in http://2xx.xxx.60.89/cpanel,,,I was able to get to the cpanel of our website ,,,,,why didn't I get to a cpanel for a different website , because ip that I used was shared for many websites not only my website

Thanks
