All ports being blocked now??

Message 1 of 3

I just got off the phone with tech support and was told Verizon is blocking all ports now, so port forwarding won't work anymore.  I am in Southern California and if this is the case, why isn't this board on fire with people threatening the cancel their FIOS service?  I know I will be cancelling soon.  What good is the speed if I can't use it?

Sounds like you might have gotten a mis informed customer support rep.

 

If ALL ports were blocked, then nothing would work.

 

What port are you looking to use ?
