How to Port Forward NBA 2K17

Forwarding ports is a useful trick in gaming because it can really help to make your network connection most stable and intermittently even faster.

Before You Forward a Port

Before you can forward a port you need to know the following things:

  • The IP address of your network router.
  • Your gaming machine's IP address.
  • The TCP and UDP ports that need to be forwarded.
