IIS/Citrix/Comcast connection problem

Posted on 2004-11-12

I currently have my server up and running windows 2000 adv srv
Here is my thing Im using Citrix Metaframe xp if anyone has used it
The reason for citrix is to run nfuse redirected to port 80 to run apps from work or wherever regardless of firewall since its on port 80 or i can redirect it to whatever port. Apps like rdp,vnc,ieplorer from home without the stupid proxy filtering here at work.
Citrix is sharing port 80 with iis its works great on lan but from say my cousins to me which he is on earthlink dsl ,the web page wont even come up for him or anyone else.
Im wondering if this is a comcast thing i know that they dont allow webservers by there rules but is the http filter only to inbound traffic and not outbound on comcasts end?
Server is also dmz'ed through my router with a few rules sets/port fowarding.
I am also running
ftp is working fine, ssh is working fine on lan outside also
citrix metaframe xp is working fine on lan
IIS is running fine on lan
Also same **** with VPN Server connects then drops the user.
If this is the case im gonna switch todsl or a service that allows this.
Everything is patched and updated
I am using  static ips mac filtered with a router netgear wgt624
The server is dmz'ed out and is also setup for port forwarding and port triggering.
Any ideas anyone?

    You could try changing the port that NFuse listens on, to a port that you know works from outside of Comcast. You mentioned that FTP works fine, try shutting down FTP for a day, setting IIS and NFuse to use port 21, and see what happens.

    Nope still dont work
    when i changed it to port 21 and stop the ftp service same thing just goes blank does not even come up on the lan.
    If i use port 4545 8080  works ok not gonna try any more ports
    also tried the ssh port 22 same thing nothing
    not sure if they r blocking the TOS ( Type Of service) on the packets going outbound
    still no luck

    Go to and have the site scan your ports.  If port 80 comes up as stealth, then your ISP is probably blocking it.

    Ahh I finally fixed the virtual machine problem
    what i did was i had to install microsoft virtual machine off of a dvd i had and then update it with windows update. then installed netscape. Then installed Feature Release 3.
    Now java is up and working
    Well i guess ill wait till my dsl arrives and try my website then.
