XBox One - Port mapping for Multiplayer games
March 14, 2016 10:06 AM
So when you're in the "lucky" situation that your XBox One states "NAT Strict" or "NAT Moderate", you might run into problems when playing a game multiplayer - especially when you host the game.
To get this to work, even with NAT Strict, you'll have to do some port forwarding settings in your modem or router.
- Give XBox One a FIXED IP ADDRESS
First of all; I recommend giving your XBox One a fixed IP address.
This can be done in two ways.
The first method involves your router being capable of assigning IP addresses to a MAC address in the DHCP settings. Note that not all modems/routers can actually do this. But if you modem can; do so!
The second method involves doing manual IP settings in your XBox One.
Go to Preferences -> Network -> Advanced Settings -> IP Settings -> Manual.
Enter a fixed IP address here, and for DNS and Gateway use the IP address of your router or modem.
- Port Forwarding to XBox One
Next step is to map certain ports to your XBox One's IP address - this is done in your router or modem.
These are the ports you will need:
TCP Ports: 80
TCP/UDP Ports (aka Both): 53, 3074
UDP Ports: 88, 500, 3544, 4500
After mapping these ports, your XBox One might still report that your NAT is STRICT or MODERATE, but multiplayer games can now be played and hosted successfully.
