Cox Cable blocks port 80

Postby mattress67 » Wed Jul 13, 2011 10:29 pm

I hope to save some people a lot of time and frustration. Close to five hours in my case. In short...

Cox cable (large Southwestern U.S. Internet provider) blocks port 80.

In short, you'll get everything working on your home network, but you will be unable to access your camera from the Internet. And all your settings will be correct, including your port forwarding settings, i.e., your computer will show it open and available. But, it'll be no use.

Personally, I can vouch for port 8090.

Hope some of you find this info soon, or before you send a working camera back to the store.

They can't be blocking port 80 (http traffic) or you couldn't get to any web page. However I agree with you, as I've stated previously, using port 80 for your camera is a bad idea.

they could be blocking inbound 80 vs allowing outbound web access via port 80. two different things. Normally there should be no problem using port 80, but once you have more than one device, then it's often easier to use a block of higher range numbers.

Hope some of you find this info soon


I wonder if there is an FAQ around for this type of info? good find anyway.
