I like the analogy, and its very similar to the one I used when I was explaining to my colleague. However, using the same analogy. If the door is closed, locked and moved to the side of the house. I wouldn't hear him knocking, in fact he'd have nothing to knock on. In my case, the port is closed, th...

Re: FTP attemps even though port is not open

Being naive, but I thought if the ports were not listed in "Allow incoming TCP ports", I assumed therfor they are cosed ? If the port is closed, then the ftp client shouldn't even get to the login prompt, should it ??? If the port isn't open, the client ought to have failed to connect, but...

Feature Request

Under MSFE-Front End >> Bulk Actions. Would it be possible to add a bulk action to add the offending IP addresses to CSF Firewall blocklist. At the moment, you have to enter inside each message and choose block from within, which is time consuming. It would be nice to highlight them in bulk and bloc...

Re: RBL check timeout

Now I understand.

I have this configured on my server, but don't see the errors you mention in any logs.
However, if I try to connect to either of those servers from my local PC, they timeout.

Re: cPHulk Brute Force blacklisted countries still showing in csf.deny

That question might be better posted on the WHM/Cpanel forum.
I'd be interested to learn the outcome.
