Port Blocking

Hi

Can anyone tell me what port blocking is currently in place for general Plus accounts?

I would like to enable a webserver on my account, as it would be a fairly reliable way to move files back and forth between work and home.

I have a feeling that port 80 is currently blocked.

What do I need to do to get it unblocked?

Thanks

Port Blocking

Hi,

The only ports that we block are 135 and 445 on the borders of our network due to virus traffic, port 80 is definitely not blocked.

Port Blocking

And if you're connecting via a Redback aggregator, port 135 is blocked within the network. But as mrpoole says, port 80 is not - I've run web services on it before.

Please check

Can someone please check if they can browse my IP Please? I am trying to sort out where the problem lies.

Should just get a Hello Page.

Port Blocking

I assume by your first post you mean you want to run a webserver on your own PC?

What ADSL equipment are you using. If a router you need to add a port forward rule so any connection on port 80 on your plusnet IP address is directed to the internal IP address of the system running your webserver.

Port Blocking

I agree with what peter says.

trying a couple of other common ports on your IP they are poitively blocked and I receive an alert to say so.

This does not happen with port 80 so assume you have set your equipment to acept these connections. It seems either the port forwarding is not working or your web server is not responding.

Hope this is of some help.

Port Blocking

If you are running a web server what are you running. Are you running windows XP IIS or are you going to/are using apache.

If you are going to get/use apache and then download and install mysql and php.
Go to http://easyphp.org/ you can download there apcahe WITH mysql and php ALREADY installed. Saving alot of time and hassle. Its also cool if your and abit rusty or inexperienced in setting up a server. Not saying that you are Wink
