Traffic Prioritization

Recommended Posts

When it comes to Traffic Prioritization, is that the same as port forwarding? Or should I add my console on there and put in CODs ports or do it on the port forwarding tab in Settings?

Hi - nah it's not the same thing. Traffic Prioritisation works automatically (see where it says 'DumaOS Classified Games', which is enabled by default). What that does is automatically detect when you're playing a game, and then prioritise any data for the game over all other traffic. You could think of it like giving your game a separate, fast lane.

Port Forwarding is very different - opening ports you require to play the game is vital, since if they're not open you won't get an open NAT and online services won't work properly. Port Forwarding is also handled automatically though if you have UPnP enabled. (UPnP detects which game you're playing, and opens / closes ports as required).
