How many people here have tryed to access a Cpanel site in the past but been blocked by the firewall because of the unusal port number? I have been finding port blocking to be quite a nuiscance.http://www.datacentertalk.com

At HostingOlympic.com we have a little script to work around this
Yes, some firewall blocks access to port 2082/3 used by cpanel. But at hostingolympic.com we have used and installed a script for our customer if they request it. It can work around this firewall.

You migth want to use CPanel proxy. Downside is, that the client has to install it....(or you might want to do it for your xxxxx (any number) clients )

We've been using cPanel at Castlecore, and this has caused us problems too. I agree with Superracks - cPanel Proxy is pretty much the best way to do it (that's what we're using). Google for "cpanel proxy" and hit the "I'm feeling lucky" button and you'll land on the cPProxy web page.
We've got a couple of subdomains set up under our main domain, and the cP Proxy script is set as the index document for both subdomains. The difference being that the webmail one proxies webmail traffic, and the cPanel one proxies cPanel traffic. WHM is still port-2087-only though, for security reasons.
I seem to recall cP Proxy can't handle SSL connections though, but I can't remember why that is. I'm planning to look into rewriting part of it so it'll work on SSL hosts.
