Like xdgen84 said we can't get it to work. Is anyone willing to try partying up and trying to invite the two of us to see if that works?
If you haven't gotten anyone to do this yet, send me a PM and/or friend request - I'll give it a try with you.
I'll probably be on tonight, around 9 or 9:30 ET...
So TheWick and I found a solution for anyone having this same problem. We tried all of the above suggestions but nothing worked. What we did was the following:
1. Change the network settings to manual and input a static IP address for the PS3.
2. In the router, forward the following ports to your PS3's static IP address:
a. TCP: 80, 443, 5223
b. UDP: 5223, 3478, 3479, 3568
This is the same process used to troubleshoot and change a NAT3 connection to NAT2. However, both of us had NAT2 connections to begin with, so exactly why everything else works perfectly except joining or creating a party, we have no idea. Immediately after we changed the settings from automatic to manual and did the above, we connected first try, could hear each other fine in the headsets, perfect games.
If anyone else has had this issue, try the above solution and hopefully it should work for you. If you need more specific instructions I tracked this page down:
So last night my friend and I tried to play multi-player together but every time we tried to party up we would either be booted immediately or right before the game started. We tried starting several times, we tried switching who invited who, inviting and then promoting the other member to leader, and even reinstalling the 1.02 update. NOTHING WORKED. We also both even have NAT type 2 connections but could never hear each other. We just couldn't party up. Is anyone else having this same problem recently? And if so have you been able to fix it? Are other games having the same problem? Is there any fix in sight?
ugh....this happens to me all the time...its really annoying, especially so sense I met a person on here, he is really good....but we can never party together unless Im the host...which I dont like being...so he always gets booted from the matches, or Im forced to be the host.
This also happens alot when my friends invite thier friends that I dont know...if Im party leader they cant join and if someone else is party leader then they still cant join unless I make the guy inviting the one dude party leader then once that happens my friend gets kicked and to try to bring him back they make me party leader and then my friend's friend gets kicked....bleh...just a never ending circle of '**bleep**'
Udp 9293, 6000 - 7000, 50000, 10070
These ports plus what xdgen84 posted also helped solve the issue plus get remote play over the internet to finally to work and fixed the nat to type 2.... good luck
