  • Your gaming machine's IP address.
  • A list of TCP and UDP ports to forward.

The general process for forwarding a port is:

  • Start by logging in to your router.
  • Find your routers port forwarding section.
  • Put the IP address of your computer or gaming console in the appropriate box in your router.
