Xbox In Dmz
Posted 19 September 2005 - 07:48 AM
I have read about forwarding certain ports through to the xbox, which i can do but i wondered if it were better (and easier) to put it in the dmz (demilitarized zone, ie not firewalled) that would get around any blocking issues.
The strange thing is it connects to live fine, but trying to get a game going, in either halo2 forza or ghost recon2 would say the same thing, game or session no longer available.
Just want to know if there is any security risk if my xbox is open like that on the net.
Any help would be great, thanks.

What's his ip?
When you set the DMZ to your XBox your just telling your router that the requests that it would normally ignore should be sent to the XBox instead. Just make sure you don't give anyone on your xbox your credit card number and you'll be fine.
Just out of curiousity, do you need to place your xbox on the DMZ for it to connect to live?
One of my XBoxes doesn't need to do that, it's direcly connected to the router, the one on the bridge requires port 3074 to be fwd.
