Sometime over the weekend, Spark started blocking me from connecting to my home router on port 53.

I used to (it worked on Friday) SSH over port 53 (to get around a work firewall) but back at work this morning it no longer works. I also can't connect from other locations (including another Spark connection) so it appears that they've started blocking port 53.

Anyone else notice this? I've had to change to SSH over port 443 instead.

Yes, we are now blocking incoming port 53.
If you need it unblocked, give us a call.  Just ask to unblock port 25 and that will unblock 53 as well.
Normally we would provide more in advance communications of a change like this, but I'm sure you understand how quickly we had to move over the weekend.
