Ok.....


Stick with me whilst I do a few posts and get a few pictures up.

If anyone can genuinely help I will love you long time, but be warned I'm a retard at tech and tend to annoy people with my cluelessness :-|

I'm unable to get onto GTA online on the PS3 |_()

The only solution I haven't yet tried is to open some ports. I've often tried this in the past for other games, but given up in frustration.


Those of you willing to help, please and thank you :-D

The Rockstar site says
Quote:
All games published by SCEA (first-party) and the PlayStation Network may use the following ports for communication with SCEA (first-party) game servers:

TCP Ports: 80, 443, 465, 983, 5223, and 10070 - 10080
UDP Ports: 3478, 3479, 3658, and 10070


That is double Dutch to me.




I think my first question would be, what port number things do I want to open (clearly I haven't got a clue what I'm talking about).

Quote:
Some players have found the following website useful for configuring ports with a static IP to attain a more open NAT type with many different router models: http://www.portforward.com


When I gp to that site, there is no detail on GTA Online yet.

When I've tried that site in the past, the browser for my router looks different from theirs.....


I will now get on and post some screen grabs of my router.

So here's what the port forwarding section of my router looks like (ignore the guff I may have added over the years)




And here's picture with the application name dropdown menu open, as that's always confused me

Okay, just scanning through and trying to work it out...

What type of router is it? (I ask cause different ones have different screens and settings, usually, the Netgear one I'm used to using looks different to those images, so it wouldn't really help for me to give instructions for it if they don't have the same options available in the same places)

A quick option would be to put your ps3 in the dmz as this will not need any port forwarding at all, even tho your ps3 would be sitting outside the firewall, but you will need to give your ps3 a static IP address.

That helps, thanks.

So, yeah, Port Forwarding screen, that's right.

First question, have you opened ports for ALL those numbers? (Ignore the TCP, UDP parts for now) (These ones you mentioned -
TCP Ports: 80, 443, 465, 983, 5223, and 10070 - 10080
UDP Ports: 3478, 3479, 3658, and 10070) - of course, make sure you've got the IP address of the PS3 in the IP box.

Maybe worth doing anyway, with the Traffic Type box you should find the TCP/UDP options there (and choose the right one for each number)
