Hi, I'm currently doing a School project that involves a ASP WAP site and connection to a sql database. I'm running both web server (IIS) and database (mySQL) on my windows xp pc. I made a simple WAP site to test the connection, it displays when I use OpenWave SDK but doesn't load when I tried to use my mobile phone to connect.

Is there a possibility that my phone service provider is blocking WAP ports other than 80? I'm asking this because my IIS is running on port 82 (i have to do this because my ISP blocks any hosting on port 80). If so, is there any ways to unblock port 80 so I can run IIS on it?

Please suggest what I should do. I can develop the WAP site fine using OpenWave SDK but ultimately the users need to be able to connect to the WAP site using a mobile phone.
