      I dont appreciate being called a liar, and dont appreciate being told that I need more training.
      SatDish's comment was a bit on the cheeky side, but I'm sure it wasn't intended to be malicious.

      But there's no denying that ports 25, 80, 3128 and 8080 are not blocked. I suppose it's not too surprising that Sky give incorrect information to their staff, just as they do to their customers.

      I notice you have edited out the port link, maybe you should take it out of James' quote as well. You don't want anyone else learning your NW pw do you

      Just to ressurect this thread.


      Port 8080 is definitely blocked for me and I am on the Max unlimited LLU package.

      Why do they block this port?
