Question about Port Forwarding 1-65535 on R1

Recommended Posts

Just a question about this. I don't have any issues getting an open nat with bacis port forwarding for my PS4 or Xbox.  However without a DMZ option on the R1 DumaOS I know it's been mentioned on here that port forwarding 1-65535 is basically the same thing.

So my question I have is there any negative downside of opening all these ports for my PS4 or Xbox?  Does doing this effect other devices on my network in anyway?

Thanks in advance.

I don't think it affects your devices per-se, but rather it opens you up to security risks. Now in my opinion those security risks are hardly worth worrying about, since local network hacks are extremely rare and almost always targeted. I'd do some research before you go ahead and do it though - I'm by no means the authority on network security.

It shouldn't create any performance issues if you open those ports, if you have UPnP disabled.
