Thread: Port 80 Blocked
10-07-2003, 12:40 AM #1msettGuestPort 80 Blocked
My dumb cox internet provider blocks port 80 and says no web servers. Its so stuphid. My friend and I are just trying to have small server so we can host our website for free and no popups and crap. He doesnt have apple so idisk aint an options. I think its horrible. Any other port I can use or free hosting.

In the httpd.conf file you will find a line that says "Port 80", just change the 80 to another port and restart Apache (go into sharing, turn it off and on again). Then you can access your sites from http://ip-number:portnumber/~yourusername.
httpd.conf is a big, important file so don't change aything in there you don't have to . If you don't know where it is or what its function is, do a bit of reading, just so you get to know the basics :) You don't wanna go and mess it all up. Open it in pico through terminal or BBEdit or something like that and do a find to get to where you want to go.I'm in your forums, writing sentences in a grammatically acceptable manner.

Yeah, I think they blocked 22 here as well. Which sucks. They shouldn't be able to do that. I can understand having a warez FTP server or something, but a homepage with very little to no traffic at all should be allowed. Oh well, another reason to get off cable and on DSL.
All these instructions are valid in your case. Change the port to something they haven't block, if you can find one, and you should be all set...Emrys

I used to have a Charter cable modem a few years ago and I hosted a site on my own Linux server and setup apache with a different port like 5896 or whatever you feel like. I then signed up for a free geocities account and created an index.html page which had the following contents:
So whenever somebody went to my geocities account it would forward them to my webserver. So I could manage everything on my server myself and run any services I wanted but still have people be able to get to my sight without having to remember a port.
The solution would even work better if you had a site with a registered domain name and put the forward in it. Just something I did to get around the port blocking.

After these changes, do I have to do portforwarding in the Airport Admin as well? "Private port (80), 10.0.1.2, Public Port (changed it to "82").
Or is this not the right way/method. (I'm not a Mac veteran).
