I had a home server for quite a while with comcast.  They never  
blocked any ports on me since you get a dynamic ip address I would  
think that would be hard to do.  I did find myself booted off the  
network about once a month and I would have to reset my router to get  
back on.  With hosting so affordable it didn't make sense to invest  
the time to do it after a while.  To many work arounds to do it and  
then keeping up with security issues.  My server was probed constantly  
for attacks. It was a good learning experience though.
