I get the following error when I click on "Add IP to Firewall" under Plugins in WHM

Internal Server Error
No response from subprocess (/usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/cgi/addon_add2apf.cgi): The subprocess reported error number 2 when it ended.
Hello Darijan,

Sorry to hear you are having issues with adding your IP to the Firewall in WHM. This is not normal behavior for the WHM. You will want to contact the Live Support so they can look at your specific account to see what the issue may be.

Kindest Regards,

Hello nick_nystrom,

Thank you for your question about WHM and adding the IP to the firewall. You shouldn't have to accept them. It sounds like something else might be going on. I'd suggest reaching out to the Support department for their assistance. Let us know if you need anything else. Thanks!
