Verizon DSL does not block port 25 in the NorthEast. Port 80 appears blocked (Bah!), but they claim they don't block any ports. I was told it could be the DSL modem (Westell Wirespeed A90-210015-D4), but as far as I can tell, it isn't configurable, and doesn't block ports anyway. Odd thing is that the port 80 trace stops at the modem. I've never been able to figure this out. Next month, Comcast (formerly AT&T Broadband (formerly MediaOne Broadband)) is supposed to turn on the digital upgrades in my area, so I'm probably going to switch over. Oh, and BTW, other than port 80, Verizon DSL/PPP works great with FreeBSD.
