    Question Getting around Port blocking.

    I'm trying to host an sql database and html server.
    My isp blocks port 80 and other popular inbound ports.
    How do you get a html client like explorer, fire fox, etc. to access on other ports? I have the following set up.
    Redhat 9, Apache 2, ddclient 3.6.6, LynkSys Router
    I can set up my side to listen to custom ports, but every time i try to dial in from a remote client, I get blocked.

    I have tried the following ip address configurations.

    http://some.internet.protocol.address:portnumber/

    but the port on the end seems not to work.

    I know the server is working, due to I can access it from my lan.

    any ideas would help.
    thanks.

    Your ISP has blocked port 80 because they don't want you hosting any type of server using their connection. If you don't like it get a new ISP
