PS4 NAT TYPE

For the last week it's been on moderate or strict. Before was 100% open. How can this be changed without phoning up

Re: PS4 NAT TYPE

Issues with NAT type are usually because the routing functions in the hub are not forwarding traffic correctly to the PS4.  This can sometimes be resolved by setting up port forwarding to ensure that PS4 specific traffic is forwarded to the correct ports on the PS4. There is a guide on what ports to forward here.

Personally I have my hub in modem mode and use a third party router, so have never had to setup port forwarding, and have no issues with NAT on my PS3 or PS4.

Re: PS4 NAT TYPE

I agree with SCA1972. My PS4 NAT works ok in modem modem plus own router.

My advice is at your own risk.

Re: PS4 NAT TYPE

I'm not comfortable with this solution as adding another piece of hardware is surely going to add latency to the connection. Any idea how I can get to nat type 1 (im on nat type 2 atm when my ps4 is in the DMZ). Thanks!

Re: PS4 NAT TYPE

NAT type 1/Open is achieved by putting the PS4 into a DMZ, so if you've done that correctly, that should be it (although NAT Type 2/Moderate is fine)

As for increased latency in modem mode, that's not the case.
