Re: [PLUG] Comcast is Messing with My DNS

Brent is correct thanks for clarifying that. If they can see it, then they consider it public and therefore a violation of TOS. Yes, they do port scan, and yes they do watch all "inflowing" traffic.

From what their security/criminal data center people told me when they blocked port 25 was that it's mainly a SPAM issue.

no *PUBLIC* servers on residential accounts.

it's in the contract. they can't tell you what you can and can't do
behind the router; that'd be pretty illegal.

and since most of his DNS setup here is internal, as far as i can
understand it...
