I have Charter Cablemodem access. Like most any broadband provider they mention 'no webservers, no ftp servers, no gameservers" etc. Just*how* closely do they watch this?
I realize I'm the one breaking the rules and taking the risks, but I would like to set up a small webserver at home. It will be very very low bandwidth- mostly just to host small images like avatars and stuff for a few forums I frequent. I will also like to have ftpd running on it for the infrequent times of moving small files around (less than2mb, in most cases). I understand the usual ports are blocked and I know how to get around that.
I know it's against the rules, but has anyone ever done this themselves? Ever get 'busted', and if so, what did they do? I have a feeling that as long as I don't rock the boat too hard they either won't notice or won't care as much.
But I could be wrong.
Thanks for any insight.
