Need 2 open NAT

If you have a firewall or network hardware, such as a router, you might need to make a configuration change in order for your Xbox 360 console to communicate with Xbox LIVE. This configuration change is sometimes called "opening ports" or "port forwarding."

Xbox LIVE requires the following ports to be open:  
  • Port 88 (UDP)
  • Port 3074 (UDP and TCP)
  • Port 53 (UDP and TCP)
  • Port 80 (TCP)
For Belkin router follow this steps

Configuring port forwarding

In order to configure this, you need to know: 

- The IP address of the computer or device to have the port forwarded to.

- The port numbers to be used and whether these are TCP or UDP ports

(Note: We recommend you use a computer that has a wired connection to the router.)

Setup steps:

  1. Open a Web Browser on the computer. Type in
  2. In the address bar of the Web Browser type Click Login in the upper right hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click submit.


  1. Click on Virtual Servers under Firewall in the menu on the left


  1. Enter the following information
    • Disable Firwall

    • Type the port(s) specified by the program manufacture for both of the Inbound port fields
    • Select TCP, UDP, or BOTH for the Type.
    • Private IP address: Enter the IP address of the computer you want grant access too.
    • Type the port(s) specified by the program manufacture for both of the Private port fields.


  1. Click the Apply Changes button

Printer offline. How do I fix

The issue is with the printer ports, we need to configure the ports for the network from the printer icon.

Please perform the following troubleshooting steps to fix the issue.

1.Start, Control Panel, and then select Printer and Faxes.
2.Click File and then click Server Properties.
3.Select the Ports tab, and then click Add Port.
4.Select TCP/IP Port and create a new port.
5.Type the IP address of the Printer(which is printed in the network configuration page) and proceed with the onscreen instructions.

Follow these steps to unblock the HP programs and the required Internet ports.

Open the C:\program files\HP\digital imaging\bin directory and then locate the following files:
  1. hpoews01.exe
  • hpofxm08.exe
  • hposid01.exe
  • hpqkygrp.exe
  • hpqste08.exe
  • hpqtra08.exe
  • hposfx08.exe
  • If the HP software installed on the computer is version 10.0 or newer, find the hpiscnapp.exe file.
  • If the HP software installed on the computer is version 9.0 or older, find the hpqscnvw.exe file.

Open the C:\windows\system32 directory and then locate the following files:
  • hpzwiz01.exe
  • hpznui01.exe

Make a note of or copy the file path for each file listed. The file paths should resemble the example: C:\windows\system32\hpzipm12.exe .

In the firewall software, make sure that each of these programs displays in the list of trusted or allowed programs. If any of the programs do not appear in the list of trusted or allowed programs, add the missing programs to the list manually

NOTE: The name of the list might vary, depending on the firewall program
If the firewall software has different trust levels or requires specific permission for a program to access the Internet, make sure you allow each of the HP programs to access the Internet freely.

Click OK or Save to save the changes to the trusted or allowed program list.

I'm assuming by the list you mean within antispyware antivirus, trojan, firewall, and Windows defender programmes; check them all. You may have to allow it also if you are using a router in the virtual server section and open the required port.

Configure the firewall

You can use the Virtual Server to forward an individual port to one of your computers. You cannot forward the same port to multiple computers. In order to configure the Virtual Server you need to know the IP address of the computer that needs the port opened and the service port number. The links below will help you find the IP address of your machine. If you don?t know which port needs to be opened, try checking the software manufacture?s support website for information on use behind firewall. Configuring the Virtual Server: Step 1 Access the device configuration by entering in your web browser. Login with your username and password. The default username is admin and the password is blank. Step 2a If the port you need to forward is a common port, it will be under the predefined virtual server list at the bottom of the page. Click the pad and paper icon next to the virtual server entry you want to use. The Protocol Type and Service Port fields are preconfigured. Click the Enable radio button to use the virtual server. Enter the private IP address of the computer that will use the service port. Configure the Schedule as needed, then Apply your settings. Step 2b If the port you need to forward is not listed under the predefined virtual server list at the bottom of the page, you can create a new entry for your application. Click the Enable radio button to use the virtual server. Give your virtual server a name. Next, enter the private IP address of the computer that will use the service port. Then, select the Protocol Type and enter the Service Port. If you don?t know how to use Private and Public port assignment, then just enter the same port number in both fields. Configure the Schedule as needed and Apply your settings.
