Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

Open Question

I have a netcomm nb6plus4wn modem/router that is connected to a P.C. and also a PS3. My dilemna is that when I play MW2 I get a NAT type as moderate. I've created a static IP adress for the PS3 and I've opened the ports for both PSN and MW2. Also have the PS3 IP address as the DMZ host.I can solve my NAT problem temporarily by resetting my modem/router but the NAT type returns to moderate after a random amount of time (1 hour, 1 day, 1 week somtimes). Does anyone know the solution.

SOURCE: pix 515 E allow few websites only.

Do the nslookup for the three websites and write an access list to permit the traffic only to the said website ip addresses

Eg.

1. go to dos prompt

2. type "nslookup"

3. type "www.rediff.com

Note : You will get the ip address of the websites

4. Create an object group for these websites

5. Add ip addresses of the websites

6. create an access-control list element to permit the traffic from your circle office to this object group for port tcp 80 and 443

You are done

SOURCE: nat type strict on ps3

I have windstream and it is always strict. You may want to go into your modem and make the router a DMZ. Just make sure your firewall stuff has not been changed on the router. Then DMZ your ps3 static ip. If that does not work I have been told i need to call my isp to get them to change it somehow. Or you could supposedly bridge it, but I gave up on it. I just accept the fact that sometimes I cant play with certain people or chat with certain people.

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

Regards
Tom

Im playing call of duty and cannot get onto any online games. I have an internet connection and im at the rank of lance cpl 2nd class but I cant play on any games?


Make sure that you NAT TYPE isn't moderate or strict if so factory reset the modem/router and if that doesn't do it, go into your modem/router via PC and set your PS3 as a DMZ host. NOT: Setting you PS3 system as a DMZ host puts your console outside the firewall.

Can't get online in modern warfare 2.


If you have managed to get on line before I would not worry about it being a connection problem with you. I have MW2 on PS3 and my neighbor does on his Xbox 360. He never has any problems connecting to play, but I often do. It seems to be a Sony Server Problem.

If you have had problems and have not been able to connect at all to any games, then you may need to play with your router or modem (NAT Network Address Translation) settings. However, since there are so many different types of Router and Modem to explain here, you may want to check the manufactures website for help.

Good Luck
