Comcast scanning Port 80

You would kind of expect it, but to do it in such an obvious way is kind of mind-boggling. Comcast started scanning my home IP every 15 minutes on November 24, 2004 for signs of a live Port 80. A simple IPTABLES rule and that’s the end of that.

Now, that move will likely get me in more trouble than having an active Web server on my IP.

  1. I googled “comcast port 80 21” and it brought me your site. Does Comcast block port 80 and also 21, 22? Also what rule did you create in IPTABLES that prevents Comcast from sniffing it.
