Re: Port blocking?

said by rtfm:

The question is: what will Fairpoint let through? And not being there, I can not test that. Hence my query here.

And, again, without the Message Submission Server host name, how can anybody test Fairpoint policy?

By testing to ANY site with mail ports there; save those within Fairpoint's walls, of course. Fairpoint's blocking is not to one site, but via some ports.

Or I'm pretty sure that that the M-lab test suite include a list of blocked ports. (»measurementlab.net)

But the problem is with a specific server. The ideal test would include that server, as well as others.
