turn off upnp and try these port fowarding steps instead.

 

80 tcp

443 tcp

1024 - 65535 tcp/udp

 

make sure console is off, untick your console in geo filter and boot up console. Once you are logged into psn tick your console in geo to enable it and start up game and play.

 

Once finished gaming session untick geo filtering  until you next want to game and follow the above steps.

How can you be certain that it's a port issue? It sounds like it is more likely that you're blocking servers with the Geo-filter, and that you haven't added your friends to your allow list so party chat won't work correctly. RB6 has a few servers in each region so you may not be encompassing the ones where you are. Do you see anything blocked on the Geo-filter when this occurs?

What is your NAT Type? Do you have the duma in the DMZ of your hub or the hub in modem mode? Disable UPnP & port forwarding on the hub, disable upnp forwarding in misc settings on the duma
