COX internet users. (or any other cable company) Question.

Would cox block port 80 if I had a domain hosted on my home network?

I am out and about right now, but I can’t connect to either domain that is hosted at home, but i can RDP into the machine, I have restarted it. Restarted the http server itself, made sure the services are going.

I can run RDP, AFP, FTP and various other ports on the same IP just fine, but it seems as though port 80 is blocked. I have tried on both my friends network and my 3g on my iPhone with no avail.

This sux.

Im sure i used hardly any up bandwidth at all, its just a dev server so it was pretty much only me that saw it.

Cliffs: Can/would COX block port 80 on me?

possible, have you read any of the rules that the cable company has. I have a small local one and it is clearly spelled out that they don’t allow it and they give everyone there own space for a small personal site

Almost all cable companies block common server ports incoming. Port 80 , 21, 25, etc and they also have language forbidding the use of servers on your a residential connection.

Have you a business class connection?
I’m sure they would block incoming on private hosted domains.
Please call them to discuss purchasing a business plan.

if you have a residential account, port 80 is blocked

Pretty much what everyone else said they will block common ports for residential accounts.

It was open and usable for about a month…

But yes, it is just a residential acct.

I used to have Mediacom and never had any troubles, but i assume that they are small enough that they didnt pay attention to that shit.

Fuck.. I dont have the $$ for a biz acct

Yes.. cox boxes port 80.

Configure it to listen/respond on a non-standard port and it’ll work just fine.

I’ve seen HTTPS work fine on cox without issues.

If you have gotten nasty grams for your high usage then yes. But otherwise no. You want a business account anyway. Faster dedicated speeds. Better IT support. and its about the same price. and no usage limits
