I am trying to host a website from home. Does anyone know if port 80 is blocked with shaw? As well as port 443 for SSL.
No, they aren't blocked, however,
If you are hosting a website from your home, take a look at the Business internet, plans, because most of them come with basic cable, they are very close in price and sometimes cheaper than residental TV and internet.
Also the static IP is nice.
Thanks for your help! Just one question, is there a way to get a static IP for a home service?
You can install business internet at a home (many include a static IP), but you can't add a static IP to residential internet service.
Can you confirm now if port 80 is blocked...? ;D
Port 80 is still open, just checked/confirmed
Are you testing on your local web server using your Shaw IP address? It works that way, but not if you try accessing the web server using your smartphone for example or a client on a different IP address... Try it please kev.
Yes, tested with a different IP (I am a network tech) haha, tested a server using a residental IP in Winnipeg, I'm in Calgary, external IPs, not the VPN one either
ok...heh.. I'll take your word for it and give you 1 Like... Still not working here.... will see...
The firewall rules they setup that would do that, aren't allways setup 100% correct, there are still some IPs that are not port 25 blocked that should be, but they are rare...
I checked a few cities, Calgary, Nanaimo, Winnipeg, Vancouver, the ones I checked, all went through.
Are you saying port 80 should not be blocked by Shaw but someone set it up incorrectly and is now blocked? I'm in Edmonton. I used the Tor browser to access my local web server using my Shaw IP and nothing. It works for all computers that is hooked to my local network.
Port 80 shouldn't be blocked, but it is possible that they decided to block it and not tell any of us here before hand, in which case, it is possible the block isn't setup correctly for all places and the places I checked were missed.
Can you connect to a neighbor's WiFi, or use your 2nd IP from the Shaw modem, not using TOR and access it?
Try the http://isup.me service?
