My ISP (Verizon - FIOS) blocks port 80 going to the user, coming from the
use is not blocked. It seemed that Verizon wants to prevent a residential
user from being a server.
(Haven't check recently that this is still the case, it came up when I
wanted to test creating a server with IIS, had to use port 8080 instead)
If I remember correctly:
I used DynDNS to convert name:80 to my IP address:8080,
then use the router to convert 8080 -> 80,
details on how I did that are now fuzzy however
OP wants to have 2 servers, don't think what I did would work for two
