Oh, and BTW, port 3389 is typically for RDP traffic for Terminal Services

The block on port 80 should be removed everywhere even for residental accounts. Though it is still against the TOS to host any kind of server on a residential account.

When was the block on port 80 removed?

Many people have tried to use port 80 for things like home security cameras. Which is a type of server, and Verizon firmware at one point even had assistance for setting it up. I think the server restriction is to protect the integrity of the network more then anything. So if you run one and cause issues Verizon has the right to pull the plug. Bussiness use of a residential connection would be a no no, but private personal use would probably be ok? Cause issues and Verizon can pull the plug anyway. Web based computer games are peer servers of a sort. I though the server restriction was reworded or removed?

Found it. It is still there and relates mostly to bandwidth useage as Verizon may see as excessive.
"You also may not exceed the bandwidth usage limitations that Verizon may establish from time to time for the Service, or use the Service to host any type of server. Violation of this section may result in bandwidth restrictions on your Service or suspension or termination of your Service. "

He said it "Should be removed". It has not been, nor I don't think it ever will be. That is the one big thing that splits residential business accounts.

Oh. Woops my bad. Should have been, would be better. I guess if you do not understand redirects you shouldn't be running a server anyway.

Hi I am an Dj for an internet radio station and ever since I got fios It has seem to block ports 3306 and 5120. I have unhooked my router and disabled my firewall and still when I do port checker it can not see my computer. Those are the only two things that could be blocking it. I run Windows Vista Basic and have ZoneAlarm for a firewall. The router is a Dlink which when hooked up I configured to allow access to the mention ports. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

that is why they have dyndns.com But I use webhostingpad, I spent $70 to $80 for 2 years of unlimited everything plus free domain name. It would cost more to run a PC in power cost over the same 2 years.

There is a reall handy tool called portmon.exe comes with a lot of server platforms and MSFT "Resource Kits" so you may already have it, if not almost any download site like www.downloads.com would have it I bet. This will allow you to see exactly what is going on on your system when those ports are accessed. A good troubleshooting tool for port issues.

Also port 25 for incoming mail if you open it and try to run a mail server for inbound connections. 80 and 8080 for HTML inbound and perhaps a few others. I did use remote desktop for a period, but turned it off and locked it down do to secuity concerns. You can open the port for connections and go to grc.com and use shields up for an inbound port scan.

For more information you can use the forums search dialog box and enter blocked ports. There are many postings, and possible work arounds.

No we don't. The only port we block is 25 for outgoing mail.
