Nat type

Recommended Posts

To put it simple how do I get open nat for 2 consoles of course on the main console I used first XB1 its always open but soon as I turn on my ps4 it says type 2 nat instead of type 1 is there a fix for this using the duma to get open nat with no problem on 2 consoles at the same time or does this happen on all routers where one console will always be open and the 2nd moderate

The R1 can't handle two or more gaming consoles at the same time and get full OPEN NAT, even with same game running. It's due to the kind of NAT the R1 uses, Port Address Restricted Cone NAT. Only FULL CONE NAT routers can handle multiple game consoles/PCs:

Also there is handling of NAT and uPnP at the console level when two or more game consoles are online at the same time. I'm not sure if Sony is doing anything however MS is intro'g a new feature that may make multiple consoles work with routers that use other kinds of NAT besides FULL CONE NAT. We hope it can be handled at the console level so maybe router FW won't need to be touched. However we'll will see what happens when it comes out. It's been reported due for public release by October from what I've been told.

 

Currently FULL CONE NAT routers work well with multiple game consoles running same game all at the same time.

Unfortunately the NAT naming conventions differ between MS and Sony. So just know that for Sony, NAT type 2 is ok and is considered OPEN NAT behind a router. 

 

Hope that the console Mfrs can resolve the multiple game console issue at there level though.  ;)

Very strange what you are saying, I'm not going to argue because you clearly know what you are on about, but I have 4 xbox ones on my network all with open NAT through my netduma using UPNP.

Not arguing either.

 

Is this OPEN NAT seen on dash board only or OPEN NAT on all consoles running same game? The main issue is with all running the same game.

 

 

How exactly do you have the R1 configured for your 4 xboxes? Reservations? Any port forwarding configurations?

Ah ok,

 

All 4 consoles have an open NAT on Xbox network settings. With regards to the same game do you mean COD? When the Duma first came out we could get all 4 xboxes an open NAT on Advanced Warfare no problem. When BO3 came out only 1 Xbox was showing an open NAT the rest were moderate (this is the same on IW) this has never caused any problems, I always took it that the 3 moderate consoles were showing a false reading due to something that the COD devs changed on their end as the Duma tries to open the correct ports for all consoles but the games still show moderate.

 

I’m pretty sure Iain tried to contact Activision/Treyarch about it when BO3 launched, I could be wrong on that though, maybe Fraser could clarify that.

Yes BO3 is one of the games. There are many levels to this problem. We are hoping that MS can resolve this mostly for the XBOX1 consoles. Also there is NAT kind issues along with uPnP handling of ports while two or more consoles are online at the same time. And yes, game developers have a hand in this as well. So far BO3 only seems to work on FULL CONE NAT routers. Any other kind of NAT I haven't been able to get OPEN NAT with tow or more consoles in testing. MS mentioned that they are doing some uPnP under the hood improvements so I'm hoping this will also help in most if not all mutli player games will work with any NAT kind while all playing at the same time. Also uPnP handling also needs to be looked at possibly on all levels as well. 

 

I bet game devs are open to thinking that there code doesn't work right. LOL So I presume Treyarch may think along these lines. Of course, I presume that the multi game console is a minority when it comes to gaming devs and there testing and mainly probably think along single console player lines as its been probably like this for a while and the multi console gaming is starting to pickup. 

 

Will see what MS does with all of this. Waiting on the new feature to come out, if Treyarch or Activision doesn't work after that, then I presume we can hit them up more on this. From what I'm told Sony is way behind MS on most things.

 

my 2 cents.

I have had multiple consoles playing the same games at the same time before while using the Netduma router without an issue, had open NAT on both of them. Same goes for a friend who plays with 2 consoles. Never had a NAT issue.
