      Playstation 3 Portforwarding

      Ok I think this needs to be sorted out for all of us here who have a ps3 with sky broadband so this is the settings I have and I want to know if its correct.

      ok this is what I have in services

      services-- ports

      psN1 80
      PSN2 443
      PSN3 5223
      PSN4 3478 - 3479
      PSN5 3658


      the firewall rules are as follows-



      Outbound Services

      Service Name Action LAN Users WAN Servers Log
      1 psN1 ALLOW always Any Any Always
      2 PSN2 ALLOW always Any Any Always
      3 PSN3 ALLOW always Any Any



      Inbound services

      5 PSN4 ALLOW always 192.168.X.X Any Always
      6 PSN5 ALLOW always 192.168.X.X Any Always


      IS THIS CORRECT.

      I only get lag on pes 2008 thats all

      I don't think you need the outbound ones, just incoming.

      are u sure but I can leave then since they won't do any harm

      and also can i use the same lan ip address

      for other programs i am using like utorrent or dc++

      so for instance all my lan ip address's are 198.168.0.121

      or do I have to use different lan ip address for every program?

      but i THOUGHT I SHOULD USE MY IP NOT OTHER IPS?

      All ports are open by default outgoing unless you have closed them.

      Re: Playstation 3 Portforwarding

      They can all be the same ones

      So if your PC IP is 192.168.0.2 then you would forward to that IP

      If you play on the PS3 and that IP is 192.168.0.3 you would forward to that IP the ports that it needs.

      Thank you for that help newsreader. last question it is recomended that we use nat 2 and not nat 3 is this true and what would be the method to get nat 2.

      I have upnp off. when i switched this on the ps3 detected that it was nat 2 but my ps3 connection went slow.

      By turning off the UPnP, you now have to manually open the incoming ports. Try deleting the outgoing ones and see if that helps.

      As for Nat 2 and Nat 3 sorry I have never heard of that.

      I have always had upnp turned off ?

      so what do I have to do different now ?

      I manually set the port forwarding myself. but I guess your not talking about this ?

      Service Name Action LAN Users WAN Servers Log
      1 psN1 ALLOW always Any Any Always
      2 PSN2 ALLOW always Any Any Always
      3 PSN3 ALLOW always Any Any

      Remove these rules


      And keep these ones

      Inbound services

      5 PSN4 ALLOW always 192.168.X.X Any Always
      6 PSN5 ALLOW always 192.168.X.X Any Always

      UPnP works fine for me on playstation network. No need to turn it off unless you are having connection problems.
