Forward Ports for Up
When you are playing Up you might need to forward some ports in your router. Forwarding ports is a useful trick in gaming because it can really help to make your network connection most stable and on occasion even faster. Routers were not designed to allow incoming network requests and some games can play tremendously better if an incoming connection is forwarded through the router to the game.

- Your router's IP address.
- The IP address of the device that the game will play on: either your computer or your console.
