Set Up a Port Forward for PlayStation 3 Headsets
You may need to forward ports in your router when you use PlayStation 3 Headsets. A port forward allows incoming connection requests from the internet to go straight to PlayStation 3 Headsets.

- A list of TCP and UDP ports that need to be forwarded.
