Unblock Port 80

I saw your posting about port 80 being blocked.  I have a guy I work with 
who installed a web server at his house, only to find out that his port 80 
was blocked by his ISP, after stewing over it I gave him the idea of having 
him connect to a different, higher level port number.  (we used port 2000)  
I had him configure his firewall so that when a request came in over port 
2000, it would route it to port 80 on the web server box.  He has a firewall 
box seperate from his web server.  The nice thing is that it worked like a 
charm.   That is just an idea, do with it what you will.
