I know some of you work(ed) for ISP's out there, so how hard are they on people running their own websites/ftp servers? Are they relatively lenient, or are they total $%#'s about it? And how often is it NOT allowed in your contract? Meaning, how likely is it that my (or anyone's) ISP doesn't allow webservers/FTP servers? Basically just lookin for a US related answer, I don't know if it'd be the same outside the US or not... Thanks

Cool

Most (especially broadband) providers explicitly state what you cannot do in their AUP (Acceptable Use Policy). And most explicitly state that you are not to run servers (ftp/nntp/http/mail). Shaw.ca actively scans their network on a regular basis. It doesn't bother me a bit.

There are customers who pay a premium price for premium service so that they are allowed to host these types of servers. If I'm paying five times the price for that privelege then I would hope that they enforce their policy on users who only pay for residential service.

They're more worried about the use of available bandwith as it's a limited resource. A lot of incoming connections and subsequent upstream data (http/ftp) out would certainly trigger a more in-depth interest in your connection by your ISP.

did you try the port number? and depending on what browser you are trying to use, sometimes you cannot gain access unless you are using a client (cuteftp, leech...) But try messing with PASV mode, mostly because it has to do with your firewall, and also check out the configurations in the .ini file (i'm not positive what extension it is for linux). Mess around, do some research on your router, mess with the port, include the port in the address and, try doing it from scratch if all else fails, but hopefully we can aviod that.

You should search for a configuration for the port number to be set. In mine (bulletproof ftp server on win machine), i can choose any port ranging from 1- 65,000. SO if i were you, i would read the doc and see what it says about setting the port. Also when you try to login to the server, u should be tryping ftp://192.168.1.60:27016, having a "/" will not do anything, and actually in MSIE, it crached the browser. Look for the port!

well, i am used to using a server off my windows machine, so i am not familiar with the software that you are using, but i am thinking that the port is your problem right now. Did you check the documentation on it, you'd be surprised how much they help.

Ok cool, good to see you doing the research. it looked like that manual had almost everything on there that you needed. Hope it works out. ** change the port as well to something higher. I suggest checking out this page before you choose the number though : http://www.iana.org/assignments/port-numbers look for an unassigned port number and there you go. Let me know how it goes.

uhhh wellit's all about preference and the programs that you use that are not on that list. I use 1337 cuz i think i am "leet" but actually quite gay. JK. Whatever floats ur boat man, just get that server running. If you want, send me an email or IM me on AIM to check out my server, i'll get u an account if you'd like.
