It seems Orcon have recently enabled port filtering as a value-add service to improve customer security.  That's great but it would have been helpful if they told their customers about this happening.

In my case it broke a certificate renewal process that was easily fixed once I realised that Orcon had started blocking ports!  It took a little digging to get to that point.

Good feature, transparent for most I suppose.  Annoying if you are running anything needing access on the ports they have blocked shown below.

There have been a few threads about this since the middle of the year when it was trialled on Slingshot then moved across to Orcon.
