I have just moved over from Orcon to Telecom and now cannot reach my Server on ports 80 (HTTP) or 443 (HTTPS).

I am assuming these ports are being blocked by Telecom, or being subjected to NAT at the ISP, as my modem and router have not changed throughout the switch. I have talked to Broadband Support and am awaiting a reply. 

Has anyone else experienced this?
I certainly don't really want/need to pay for a static IP.

You can access this website so Port 80 isn't blocked and I can Access HTTPS sites so thats not blocked either.

My guess is its something to do with the cache farms playing up

Are you suggesting you have servers sitting off your Telecom BB router? You weren't clear on that in your post.

The Ports are being blocked for traffic that is inbound that did not originate from the browser locally. Outbound traffic opens the port to inbound traffic for most people.

I am serving so anyone asking for that domain/IP cannot reach the IP because the port was not first opened by outbound traffic.

I am not using any Telecom gear...they were going to send a modem, but it has not arrived.

The modem in plugged into a gigabit router which all my machines are attached to.

Same setup I have had for 3 years, I have the ports exposed to my server through the Router and Modem, but the ports are being blocked before it reaches my IP address.

I have just had a thought...I might check the DNS settings on the Server, they have not been updated since the changeover.

The actual point I was trying to make is that you have servers on your Broadband - not whether the equipment was Telecoms or not. Because that changes it from an issue with outbound traffic (which is what boby55 assumed in their response) to a issue with inbound traffic.

You need to be forthcoming and specific/explicit about what your setup is and what your issue is so that people don't have to dig for the information needed to help you. Broad statements don't cut it.

ETA - And people will often ignore requests for help that don't give any real information. Sorry, it's they way people are.

Well I have got it working. It was the Servers DNS settings.

Sorry to have troubled you all.
