- The IP address of the device that the game will play on: either your computer or your console.
- The TCP and UDP ports that need to be forwarded.

The general process for forwarding a port is:
- Login to your router.
- Find your routers port forwarding section.
- Put the IP address of your computer or gaming console in the correct box in your router.
