Cox Does Block Port 80!

I have a site, premature, and no one could connect to it. So i change my httpd.conf file and add the "listen 8000" line so that the port would change. And then people were able to connect. But the links on that site, or forums (im using invision Board) Did not work because by default they are set to port 80. I call Cox up and they say...."Its policy that we block port 80" They ruined my dreams!

actually code red and nimda and virus that infect and spread via IIS on Windows servers ruined your dreams. after those virii hit a lot of broadband providers started blocking port 80.

i have "optimum online" here and that's exactly what they did. it turns out that they (the provider) can also change the terms of service at will without any prior written warning to me (the customer).

if you take a look at your terms of service i'd bet there's a similar provision or at least a paragraph stating that you're "not allowed" to host a web site or an email server...

With the listen command you are halfway there, you also need to put in a virtual host so that Apache knows how to deal with two different ways in:

code:
<VirtualHost *:8000> ServerAdmin you@your.address ServerName your.dns.name </VirtualHost>
