Blocking Port 21 for Residential Connection
I spoke with a rep who said COX can't block ports on their end, yet there are multiple articles about how they definitely block ports for everyone's protection. I know COX is blocking my port 21, which yes, I know is not the most secure, but I use it securely enough for my extremely small business (1-person agency) out of my home office. It worked fine, up until COX decided to start blocking it. I know it's COX because I've dug through all of my router's and server's logs for hours and there is nothing about port 21 being blocked. Moreover, I can reset the connection and it works from an outside source for a few seconds before being blocked again. STOP BLOCKING MY PORTS!!
