Using windows server 2008 using iis7, I want to see a list of blocked ports.

I am using godaddy dedicated hosting and I know that ports 587 and 465 are blocked because goddady wants customers to use godaddy email.

I ran netstat and I see established ports.

GoDaddy blocks ports at the network level, not the OS level. So there is no dimple command you can run like netstat to view blocked ports.

Cliff is right.  I believe they block almost everything by default and only open up what you are supposed to have available for the services you have signed up for.  For web hosting that would be ports 80 and 443 and ports for FTP services to upload files.

However, Godaddy also does not want you to run another mail server on your dedicated hosting.  They have enough trouble with customers generating spam thru their existing mail servers.
