Blocked ports question proxy ?

I will be getting Verizon Fios in few weeks and i have heard that they block incoming port 80 and port 25

I am thinking about setting up a proxy on the internet somewhere and redirect port 80 and 25 to my local server at home to port 8080 and port 2525 and run port 8080 for http and port 2525 for smtp locally.

I think that this setup will wrok but how would you go about setting up the proxy ? would squid be the answer ?

You don't need a proxy for http. Just edit the Listen line in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:
Although I would use a different port number than 8080, because that one is so common they probably listen on it too.

You don't need to do anything special to get your email, but if you want to setup a mail server you would probably have to do something similar. But I would think twice before setting up a mail server.

I think i was misleading...
what i am wanting to do is

SERVER A which runs http and smtp but on port 8080 and 2525

SERVER B which will host and forwards anything that comes to DOMAIN A:80 -> SERVER A:8080 and DOMAIN A:25 -> SERVER A:2525

just need to know how to setup the SERVER B
