Re: Xbox one live Ports

Hello

When entering the ports you need to enter then in Lowest to Highest order, I find it strange that Xbox is using port 53 as that is what all DNS servers use.

You will also need to have the Hubs firewall turned on.

Hello

It should work still with it open, when your filling in single ports make sure too fill in both the to / from ports with the same number.

Make sure the Xbox has a static IP address.

As shown in the example for port 80.

Re: Xbox one live Ports

Hello

Checking on microsoft forums found this bit of info.

"Port 53 is used for DNS. Don't forward this port. The list of "open" ports requires that these ports are open, not forwarded. Port 53 can be left out of port forwarding (as well as 80 and 88). When you reboot and check the network settings of the Xbox you should be good. Also do not forward 80. I also did not forward 88."
