ISP Blocks Port 80!! Grrr


Hello, I have an Apache Webserver running on my Redhat 7.1 box. My ISP blocks port 80 so I have to put it on port 81. My ISP is road runner cable. Do any of ya'll know of a workaround for this so I can serve on port 80.

That's bazaar dude.

You can check to see if a domain name will work with port 81, and if so you would have people use you domain name and have it route to your machine like this

youripaddress:81

if they support port redirects. I think they should.

I think they block port 80 on the inbound traffic not the outgoing requests, its a very simple exercise on any gateway.

You may want to look at services out there that redirect your domain to your linux box. So you end up with http://yourdomain.com -> yourlinuxbox.com:81

Another thought is to get a host with a very small package/cost and only store your index page there, it just references all of the files from yourlinuxbox.com:81/filename.html

yeah its not a good idea to host on road runner without a business account.. use to support for them back in the days, people who got caught lost service forever, until you write a apology letter to them and stating you will never run a web server again.. kind of stupid i say... but oh well..
