From: Gurue26 | #003 Hmmm...I can play all other 360 games on Live no problem and my internet works just fine. Is there a port that needs to be opened for this game or something?
No xbox game ever needs any port opened other than what is necessary for all xbox games.
And that said, some misconceptions to clear up:
1. 2074 NEVER needs to be available for XBL. 2. 80 and 53 were added to the list of ports, but you should never forward either of those ports to any one machine. Just leave those alone. 3. 88 UDP and 3074 TCP and UDP continue to be the only ports you need open for Xbox live game play. 80 and 53 need to be available, but are probalby only used for Twitter/facebook/netflix. Again... NEVER FORWARD THOSE PORTS TO ANY ONE MACHINE. I don't care what portforward.com says, they are wrong and they won't admit it. The sad thing is, they know more about this stuff than I (or at least they give that appearance), and they should know why you don't want to forward those ports.
