Additional question for setup exchange at home

Hi Everyone,

I already have a question answered on the link below:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/VMWare/Q_26890492.html

I just wanted to ask an additional information regarding this question:

Is that true that if I put my home server out to the DMZ  , then I will be able to use port 443, 25, 110  ? Because I cannot use them now because of ISP (I think).
I found a question answered here regarding this problem:

Hi,

Internal Network--------Firewalll ----YouHomeServer-------Firwall--------External Network(internet)

The dmz setup looks something like above, now you will be able to connect to server on any given port that you open on firewall from your internal network, however if you try to connect from external network, which is internet, your isp, it depends if they have required ports open or not. Usually home users will not require port 25, that's what isp take into consideration and some isp block them

anyways you can check if the required ports are opened from your isp side.

I have opened the required ports on router but if I scan them from the outside they still remain closed.

So I must consult with my ISP.

Thanks for the quick reply.
