cPanel dedicated IPs - how to route users' trafic?
Posted on 2009-07-13
Having a problem.. I have a VPS with a few IP addresses in the pool. I am creating new users with a dedicated IP for each one.
Scenario: There is a user (call it john999) with an IP address assigned (different from the main shared IP). So, john999 has several scripts, one of them is mail();, another downloads some files from other servers etc.
Problem: When a script that belongs to john999 communicates to the other servers, they see the same IP address (I guess our main shared IP) that they would see if that script would belong to joss888 or root111.
Are there any settings (apache, bind, cpanel or smth) I can change so each user gets the full 'control' over its IP, is fully responsible for it and does not 'share' it with others?
All accounts are shared cPanel accounts.
So basically, I need ALL the traffic of each user to go ONLY via his/her IP.
