Ho to do this "allow PHP to make outgoing connections to TCP port 8728"??
If you are on a VPS you should be able to do this on your own in WHM
If you are on a cPanel account you would have to call into support, however I'm not sure that they would / can open a specific port as they have the servers standardized / locked down for security purposes.
