How to set XBOX nat type to open?


Xbox one? If so go to settings and look at net work (or where ever your Nat type is displayed) and click the button with the word multiplayer on it (it checks the multiplayer speed) then when it's done and complete don't back out at that "complete" screen hold the following buttons LT, LB,RT,RB at one time and it will give you an accurate report of your Nat then back out and look at your Nat type if it didn't work the first time repeat. Hope this helps

I am trying to games on PS3 and cannot connect with friends. I believe this is because I have NAT Type 3 (closed) and I would like to change it to NAT Type 2 (moderate) but I do not know how.


Hi ..

The PS3 has 3 different NAT types. They are shown below.
Type 1: The PS3 is connected to the Internet without a firewall or router. No NAT issues.Type 2: The PS3 is connected to the Internet through a router which is configured correctly. No NAT issues.Type 3: The PS3 is connected to the Internet through a router that needs configuring.Ideally, you want to have a Type 2 NAT. However, a Type 1 NAT does not affect your game play.


First of all you will have to Disable the firewall in the Router / Modem

If you are using a Router ..

Then

Make sure that UPnP(Universal Plug n Play) is enabled
Enable the IP Address of the PS3 in DMZ

Or Forward the ports

Below are the TCP and UDP ports that need to be forwarded:

TCP: 80, 443, 5223
UDP: 5223, 3478, 3479, 3658

For more details on port forwarding , log on to http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm

Hope it helps

I cant play online becouse of this a NATtype3 what dose this mean


Nat 3 is the result of being hooked into a router without being properly setup for data transfer. essentially it is restrictive.

There are 3 ways to change your Nat type to type 2 or 1. (Nat type 2 meaning that it is properly setup without restrictions behind a router, and Nat 1 being a direct connection to the Internet).

1.) Hook the PS3mag-glass_10x10.gif directly into the modem will result in a Nat type 1, but of course that means disconnecting everything but the ps3 and that's an unnecessary hassle.

2.) Going into the router settings and Port Forwarding the PS3's necessary ports to the Ps3's ip address.

3.) Probably the simplest (on most routers) and most effective is to go into the router and set the PS3's ip address in the DMZ (DeMilitarized Zone), essentially the router doesnt have any say from what comes and goes to the Ps3, which is good so the connection isn't hampered.

I want to change my nat type and i have done 1000 things people tell me to and nothing works


port forwarding, you would have to call sony help line to get the port numbers and ranges, or set up a dmz with the same static IP as your ps3. Sony says that they preffer that people have nat type two while being connected to the network, but I noticed that nat type two does give me a moderate while in gaming mode, but Sony does not see that as any issue.. You have to set your up your ps3 with a static IP and configure your router the same way to your ps3 for DMZ.

PlayStation 3 keep getting nat type 3 when need type 2


Hi
I was having problems with my PS3 as well I did the following

updated firmwire

Also I assign static ip address on my PS3 and forward ports used by PS3 to static IP address of PS3 on routers firewall.

Ports used by PS3:
udp 3478
udp 3479
udp 3658
tcp.domain (port 53)
udp.domain (port 53)
tcp.http (port 80)
tcp.https (port 443)
udp.ssdp (port 1900)
tcp.amandaBackupInitiation (10080)
tcp.Jabber SSL/TLS (port 5223)
tcp.10075
tcp.10078
tcp.10079

If your still getting problems configure the PS3 to be in your DMZ.

DMZ will be under applications and gaming. Just look for that setting in your routers setup page and add your PS3 IP address to it.

you can't just say nat is now OPEN :)
let's say you have a pc with IP of 192.168.1.33
you are running a emule (hehe) on that PC
you want to use port 12345 for your emule
this is what you need to do:
1. go to webinterface of your router (usually http://192.168.1.1)
2. go to menu network/nat/port forwarding
3.go to service->user define
4. in new window click "active", name it emule, start port 12345, end port 12345, server ip 192.168.1.33
5. click ok, apply, whatever and go to menu security/firewall/rules
6. choose packet direction wan to wan/router
7. click on ADD
8.change following fields: destination address - change to single addressand change 0.0.0.0 to 192.168.1.33 and click on add, then close to itsays ANY, mark it and click on remove
9. on same page under services click on edit customized services
10. choose number 1 or 5 or whatever :)
11. service name: emule rule, service type TCP/UDP, type single, port 12345
12. click on apply
13. go to menu maintenance/tools/restart
14.just in case restart the box and your zyxel is now accepting incomingconnections on port 12345 and forwarding them to 192.168.1.33 (your pc)...

i hope i helped

cheers

I had bought a wireless router today


You need to do port forwarding. Port forwarding will open your NAT type to 1. Just call Sony and ask what port should you open on your router's admin page.

I have netgear wirless router but i hardline ps3 but i keep getting nat type 3 i need to know what ports to open on modem to get to nat type 2 can you help


Hi,
In this regard, I would recommend you to forward certain port no’s on
the Router.
Port numbers:TCP: 80, 443, 5223 and UDP: 3478, 3479.It is in this context, I would suggest you to please try with the
following troubleshooting steps:
A) Assign static IP and DNS address to the XBOX.
1. Assign IP address as: 192.168.1.50; Subnet mask as: 255.255.255.0
and Default Gateway as: 192.168.1.1
2. Assign Primary DNS Address as: 192.168.1.1 and Secondary DNS
Address as: 4.2.2.2
#
C) Open the ports on the Router using the following steps:
1. Click on Port Forwarding under Advanced.
2. Click on ‘Port Forwarding’ on the left hand column on the screen.
3. On the bottom of the screen, click on ‘Add Custom Service’.
4. Give a name to the service (for example, PS1).
5. Select Service Type as UDP and key in the starting port and ending
port as 88.
6. In the Server IP Address specify 192.168.1.50
7. Hit ‘Apply’.
10. Log Out of the Router Page.
