NF10WV - PlayStation Configuration Guide

Playstation Setup

There are two ways of allowing your Playstation to communicate with the internet. One is through port forwarding and the other is through the DMZ feature. Port forwarding will enable specified ports on the router to get access to your Playstation to communicate with the internet as if they were directly connected by allowing access through. Setting your Playstation as a DMZ host opens all the ports on the router to allow access to a designated device.

Before you configure the router, you will need to set a static IP address on your PlayStation. Follow the instructions at the link below to set a static IP address on your Playstation:

You can use an IP address like 192.168.20.100 for example.

You can only forward a port to one location (IP address).

In some cases, this may cause issues when multiple LAN devices (computers, game consoles, or VOIP ATAs) attempt to use online gaming as same time or make multiple VOIP service connections.

In these cases, you would need to use an alternate port for any subsequent connections after the first device.

Please consult your VOIP provider or game manufacturer for assistance with this.

Before we continue further, please change the port number of your modem from 80 to 8080 to avoid this error later on:

Please login at 192.168.20.1 through your web browser and login with admin as username and password.

Please go to Management >> Access Control >> Services Control >> Change the port number for HTTP from 80 to 8080 and click Apply/Save

After that you need to type: 192.168.20.1:8080 to access the modem's configuration page on your web browser.

Setting the Playstation as the DMZ Host

LOGGING IN TO THE WEB INTERFACE

1. Open a web browser (such as Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or Firefox), type http://192.168.20.1:8080 into the address bar and press enter.

2.  At the login screen, type admin into both the Username and the Password fields and click OK.

3. Click on the Advanced Setup at the left  of the page,  then click on NAT option and then click DMZ Host options.

4. Enter the static IP address of the Playstation in the DMZ Host IP Address field. In this example, 192.168.20.100 is the IP address of the PlayStation, also tick Enable LAN Loopback.

5. Click on the Save/Apply button.

6. Reboot the modem:  Click  Management  menu on the left hand side of the page then click Reboot options  and   then click Reboot button in the middle.

Adding a Port Forwarding Rule for PlayStation

LOGGING IN TO THE WEB INTERFACE

1.  Open a web browser (such as Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or Firefox), type http://192.168.20.1:8080 into the address bar and press enter.

2.  At the login screen, type admin into both the Username and the Password fields and click OK.

 

3. Click on the Advanced Setup at the left  of the page,  then click on NAT option and then click Virtual Servers options.

4. Click the Add button to add a port forwarding rule.

5. Check the Interface currently selected in the Use Interface field is correct. For Australian customers, use pppoe_0_8_35.   For New Zealand customers, use pppoa_0_0_100 or ETH WAN/eth4.1 for NBN or Fibre connection.

6. To create your own defined port forwarding rule, select the Custom Service field and give the port forwarding rule a unique   name. This example uses PlayStation.

7. Enter the IP address of the PlayStation that you wish to port forward to in the Server IP Address field. In this example, the IP  address of the PlayStation is 192.168.20.100, also tick Enable LAN Loopback and select Enable on Status.

8. Enter the Port number or port range into the External Port Start and External Port End fields. Note that the Internal Port Start and Internal Port End fields will automatically populate with the same port numbers.

9. Select the protocol to be used for the port forwarding rule. Options include TCP, UDP or TCP/UDP for both.

The ports and protocols for Playstation are as follows:

ProtocolPort Number
TCP/UDP80
TCP/UDP443
TCP/UDP465
TCP/UDP983
TCP/UDP1935
TCP/UDP3478-3480
TCP/UDP3658
TCP/UDP5223
TCP/UDP6000-7000
TCP/UDP9293
TCP/UDP10070-10080
UDP2053
UDP50000-60000
TCP10040-10060
10. Click the Apply/Save button.

11.  The port forwarding rules will now be displayed as the example above shows.

12.   Reboot the modem  :  Click  Management  menu on the left hand side of the page then click Reboot options  and   then click Reboot button in the middle.

You can only forward a port to one location (IP address).

In some cases, this may cause issues when multiple LAN devices (computers, game consoles, or VOIP ATAs) attempt to use online gaming as same time or make multiple VOIP service connections.

In these cases, you would need to use an alternate port for any subsequent connections after the first device.

Please consult your VOIP provider or game manufacturer for assistance with this.
