Not sure which Road Runner you're using, but I'm with BrightHouse
Networks in Central Florida and have written confirmation that they DO
block the following ports (25,137-139,80).
The only way I got my site up was using Custom DNS service from
DynDNS.org, an addl, mailhop and webhop redirect to a non-standard port
on my Linux box. I run http/smtp/ssh/pop3/imap with no problems off a
75MHz P-1 with 96Mb RAM running Fedora core 1 in runlevel 3.
For another $40/mo on top of the $50 I'm paying now, I can get Business
Road Runner and get the exact same service except they open up port 80
and 25, but it's more economical to stick with DynDNS at this stage.

>> You might check if Comcast has other sub ISPs that allow servers.
>>TimeWarner used to only have RoadRunner which disallows servers. Now
>>they also have AOL, Stic.net, and Earthlink. Stic.net and Earthlink
>>allow non-commercial servers on residential accounts and do not block
>>ports. I use Earthlink now for this reason.
