Re: Swisscom Port Blocking?

Good to know about the latency thing. It wouldn't surprise me if further down the line cablecom is just connecting to swisscom's infrastructure anyway.

One thing is still bothering me though. I can't get any incomming connections to work. For example, if I host an FTP server, I can't log in from a remote computer. It seems to be that way on any port (tried 21, 23, 59, 81, 1025, 4001, 52333). Can anyone else get an FTP server or another service to be seen from the outside world? Go to for an easy way to test.

If you don't have any sort of a server program, try the TFTP program from Solarwinds, or an open source FTP Server called "Filezilla". If anyone wants, I can email them a copy to spare them the download time. Just PM me with your email address and which program you want. Both are Free to use (not shareware or trialware).

I'll be getting a new apartment soon and it'll be good to know if I should make sure that Cablecom is available due to avoid incomming ports being blocked.

I think my next step is to buy a better DSL modem though... Any suggestions on what modems are better than the rest?
