What ports do I need to forward to get an open NAT on my PS4?

18 replies 334889 views Edited Nov 15, 2013

Will these be the same as the PS3 or will the PS4 use different ports?

Not 100% sure, but would think they'd be the same.  Doesn't hurt to try.

Before making changes to your router copy down it's current settings so you can put things back if you run into trouble.

** Use a unique password for your PSN ID - one you don't use anywhere else **
** Engage brain before putting mouth in gear ** ** two-step verification - use it **

|Welcome to the PlayStation Community Forums

 

 

The current ports required for PSN should stay active but there is a good possibility that PS4 specific services like streaming will make use new ports. I like to add that third party games  make or extra ports

 

You can either wait till this information surfaces or just setup UPnP which will allow the PS4 to automatically negotiate the needed ports with the router.

 

UPnP must be enable at the router & PS4.

That list of ports is for the birds.  Unless the PS4 is running a secure and non-secure web server, there is no reason whatsoever fo forward TCP ports 80 and 443 to the console.   And even if so, most ISPs block service on port 80 even if it has been opened at the router.

99% sure there is no UPnP off/on option on PS4 .. or maybe I'm just really blind
