Help needed with PS3

If you have a wired(ethernet) PS3 do you still require port forwarding(ports opening)?
Any help appreciated



test your connection on ps3 see if it tells you Upnp is available ?

If it is log into router and enable DHCP and enable Upnp and save. Then get ps3 to get IP and DNS automatically.

This way upnp will open the ports for you. Do not place the ps3 ip into DMZ or set up any port forwarding though if upnp is available


Wut? Not being funny, but doesn't the PS3 walk you through this whatever … Wut? Not being funny, but doesn't the PS3 walk you through this whatever your connection? Well yes, it does, 'cos I have one and mine plays fine and I haven't a clue as to what you two are talking about,lol Port this and whatever, wut?:w00t:

Your ps3/ laptop etc are behind a firewall which means they are visible to your internal network eg the rest of your computers . Opening ports allows your equipment to be accessed from outside of your Network eg the rest of the world. When you play multiplayer games your ps3 has to open some ports to allow the other players and you to play with each other chat and send invites and join games.
