A friend of mine came up with fool proof idea for keeping anybody from accidently going live with a modded x-box. he Configured the modded Xbox to use a static ip address and to use DHCP for it when it's unmodded. He then set up his firewall not to allow the static IP to have any internet access. That's ok, but I want to try to make it better. I want the modded to have internet access to anywhere except for Xbox live.

So, has anyone found out what servers/ports xbl uses to connect to? I'd look myself but I'm using a switch/router so I can't sniff the packets, I'd have to arrange my setup with a hub or the like.

Thanks for listening.

UDP 88
UDP 3074
