    @Home tells you the same thing.  Although they portscanned me frequently,
    they were checking for specific servers and actually deny traffic on ports
    135-139 (Winblows traffic). Unless they change over to non-routables (which
    would kill things like ICQ, etc) they will not be able to stop me from using
    ssh or others for remote access. @Home and other providers get around the
    "server" issue by capping your maximum outbound bandwidth. This is
    something I have had to live with when upload FTP files to some off-site
    game servers I own.
