    Just curious, why can I block port 8443 but not 4643? Is the Power Panel service running somewhere other than my VPS?

    VZPP on port 4643 runs on the hostnode, so traffic to this port never reaches your VPS, thus you can't firewall it using iptables.

    8443 hits your system directly, thus it can be firewalled.

    Interesting. Thanks!
