Port Forwarding

5 replies 332 views Edited Dec 12, 2011

I need to forward ports on my router to connect to the Playstation network. I am confused of how to enter the numbers. TCP ports required: 80, 443, 5223, and 10070-10080

UDP ports required: 3478, 3479, 3658, and 10070. which numbers do youy put in the starting port and ending port.

hey dude the solution to your problem is easy if you are wired in then on your router do the following:

TCP: BEGINNING PORT 80      ENDING PORT 10080 for there solution.

if you are wireless do the the following:

UDP: BEGINNING PORT 3478  ENDING PORT 10070

THERE IS YOUR SOLUTION

If you do that, then your programs that need to receive connections from the internet on your other computers might not work properly.

If you're going to choose such a broad range of manual ports (i.e. everything from 80 to 10080) to forward, then you might as well put the PS3 in the DMZ and avoid stepping all over your other computers. Or read my FAQ for other, better solutions.

No, you don't. Opening over 16,000 ports just for the PS3 is a little dumb.
