Actually, no.
If your (or his) ISP is as anal as lots are about running servers
then they'll be blocking standard ports (http/telnet/ssh/ftp/nntp/etc).

Port 80 is probably the MOST likely to be blocked, especially thanks to

And even if they aren't blocking but their AUP doesn't allow servers,
then you really don't want a standard port anyway, since their little
