      Help with Firewall on Sky router

      I was having problems with my PS3 and playing Black Ops. The NAT type shows as Type 2 however Black Ops always shows game type of moderate or strict rather than open. To resolve this I need to open some ports on the firewall.

      My PS3 has a static IP of 192.168.0.80 and I have added the required TCP & UDP ports in services. I then go to the firewall rules - inbound services and add the Black Ops services (see attached pic for one example).

      Once complete this resolves the problem however to test the security I changed the IP from 192.168.0.80 to 192.168.0.81 and it still works. Why is this? I only want these ports open for the PS3 on 192.168.0.80. Have I done the config wrong?

      Do you have UPnP enabled? If so try disabling it and see what happens.

      Yes, I have it enabled as I need UPnP for my PC. I should not have to even open these ports but UPnP and PS3 / Black Ops don't work on this router for some stupid reason and will only work if I configure manually.

      I will try to disable when I get home and see what happens.
