Re: ISP TOS restrictions on servers

It depends on how much traffic you are pulling. They will not be able
to decrypt the information, however that doesn't mean they can't
terminate your account. If you upload significantly more than you DL,
then you are technically a server. Chances are they have a "but we can
terminate your account if we don't like you" clause in the TOS so this
is all a moot discussion to have. Basically, if you keep it low
traffic and don't cause any troubles it shouldn't be a problem, but an
FTP server is a different story. I haven't personally had any
experience with Verizon and lots of people would appreciate if you
would post a little report after you've been running it for a while.
How do they deal with DMCA letters? Legal threats? Etc.

I have Verizon DSL 3Mbps/768Kbps that I want to run a Tor middle-node server
on. However Verizon's TOS prohibit any kind of servers. Do ISPs really care
about whether people run servers on residential accounts and do they scan
ports? If so, how often? Will they be able to decrypt the data from a middle
node? Is it worth also running a public web\ftp server (on a different port
than 80\21)? If they find out, will it be a warning letter or termination?
