Port Forwarding Multiple IPs

by ne0rotic / September 19, 2014 11:15 PM PDT

What I need to accomplish:
I have an xbox 360 and an xbox one.

Xbox Live the following ports opened for both devices (which may, sometimes, be used at the same time):
<span>• Port 3074 (UDP and TCP)
<span>• Port 53 (UDP and TCP)
<span>• Port 80 (TCP)
<span>and for Xbox One:
<span id="INSERTION_MARKER">• Port 500 (UDP)
<span>• Port 3544 (UDP)
<span>• Port 4500 (UDP)<span>

<span>

<span>I am using ATT Uverse as my ISP.
<span>

<span>The problem I'm running into is that ATT's user interface for the router (that I access at 192.168.1.254) will only allow me to designate a port forward for one device.
<span>

But port forward discussions are legendary. I will not go there but share a common fix for this one I use. Ready?

Put the device you need this into the DMZ of the routers.

Multiple IPs?

192.168.1.254 is an address that the router gave you. Try one of the whatsmy ip .com sites to find your real IP address.
192.168 block is a non routeable IP address called a private IP address.
Secondly, that's the reason most people get non ATT routers. ATT doesn't want you to connect a bunch of computers to the internet and have a LAN party.
Want to have a LAN party? Configure your Uverse to use a regular IP address, get a good router and configure it to use DHCP on the LAN side and use the regular Uverse IP address on the WAN side.

You will need some kind of app or packet scanner to find all the ports your games want to use then lock down your router firewall.

We used to daisy chain VPNs from group to group which allows a bunch of people (if your upload speed if fast enough) at different sites to play in a LAN game and not have to go through an internet game server.
