Network traffic being blocked from specific IP?
I have a friend that I am trying to game with, but the problem is that if we play anything that needs to host the server locally it never connects. We have done a traceroute from his location to mine, and mine to his. It seems like traffic is being dropped by comcast before it ever has a chance to be delivered. The same thing happens when he tries to connect to his brother, who also happens to be a comcast customer. However, if we switch over to a qwest line, we can connect just fine.
When he pings me, I can see the ping requests in my firewall logs, so it seems like ICMP traffic is just fine. However no other connection attempts show up in my firewall logs, so I know the traffic never makes it to me. In his tracert, the last device that talks to him is a comcast device, but it is 2 hops before it would hit me. His IP is 220.127.116.11 and the last comcast device that will respond to him is 18.104.22.168. The next device it should be talking to is 22.214.171.124, but it never responds.
