Re: Swisscom Port Blocking?

Swisscom don't block incoming ports but the ADSL service *can be* flaky sometimes, and there are strange thinks going on in their network that even they can't explain sometimes (trust me on this one )

Personally I always used cablecom for hispeed internet and apart from resetting the cable modem every few weeks it only let me down once or twice in 2 years. I would say it is more reliable but that is only my opinion. The modem that comes with cablecom is OK. For ADSL/VDSL the one you get with the package (Netopia or Motorola) is pretty good these days.
Agree with the Swisscom network being flaky at times.

Does anyone know if Swisscom block outbound ports, specifically port 25 for smtp?

Anyone got a mail exchange to work with having to resort to outbound or relay services?

There is also the issue of reverse dns.

I cannot get fixed IP as I have bluewin TV so that is a no go!

Also the mail relay and mail outbound supplied by dyndns seems to be a bit limited.
