Microsoft started blocking most IP traffic (using a BSDi firewall, BTW)
after the infamous "Ping of Death" repeatedly took down their
webservers.

The firewall is probably blocking queso scans.


ftp homepages.msn.com
 Connected to homepages.msn.com.
 220 TalkCity FTP server (Version tcftpd(4) Sun Oct 11 20:50:16 PDT
1998) ready.
 Name (homepages.msn.com:thornton):

I think TalkCity runs on Solaris.
