PIX 501 Port Forwarding

By jcampbell ·
Hello,

I have a PIX 501 and I need the following writen into some commands (I don't know how to enter them).

Outside IP Address: Dynamic (Cable Connection)
Device IP Address: 192.168.1.99 (XBOX 360)
TCP: 3074
UDP: 88
UDP: 3074

Basically I need to change my NAT from Moderate to Open when using XBOX Live.

Thanks in advance

JCambell,
Here is the relevant information your will need to add to your pix configuration:

ip address outside dhcp setroute
ip address inside 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0
access-list inbound permit tcp any any eq 3074
access-list inbound permit udp any any eq 3074
access-list inbound permit udp any any eq 88
global (outside) 1 interface
nat (inside) 1 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 0 0
static (inside,outside) tcp interface 3074 192.168.1.99 3074 netmask 255.255.255.255 0 0
static (inside,outside) udp interface 3074 192.168.1.99 3074 netmask 255.255.255.255 0 0
static (inside,outside) udp interface 88 192.168.1.99 88 netmask 255.255.255.255 0 0

Problem Solved

by jcampbell In reply to test...

If anybody needs the solution on how to port forward (change the tcp or udp ports to what you need forwarded) or needs their XBOX Live forwarding below is the solution:

static (inside,outside) tcp interface 3074 192.168.1.99 3074 netmask 255.255.255.255 0 0
static (inside,outside) udp interface 3074 192.168.1.99 3074 netmask 255.255.255.255 0 0
static (inside,outside) udp interface 88 192.168.1.99 88 netmask 255.255.255.255 0 0

access-list outside permit tcp any interface outside eq 3074
access-list outside permit udp any interface outside eq 3074
access-list outside permit udp any interface outside eq 88

Great fix for XBOX!

by Eman_Groove In reply to Problem Solved

Thanks for that info.
Do you know how to config a Vista OS to play online PC-DVD games? The game manufacturer recommends UDP 7777. How do I configure this on a Vista OS?

Solution for PIX and XBOX LIVE to open!

by du_storm In reply to PIX 501 Port Forwarding

if you are like me and have a cisco pix, firewall then you may have noticed from your xbox, telling you your NAT settings are less than ideal(mine was Moderate). to save you all the work here is the NAT config to get your pix firewall working.
note: the game works without this config, but will have issues with chat, searching, etc.

also, my xbox was telling me "NAT: Moderate" when i would do a diagnostic test.

sample setup:
cisco pix 501 firewall - ip address 192.168.0.254 (inside interface), dhcp address from cable provider (outside interface)
xbox 360 - ip address 192.168.0.100

pix config (must already be configured for basic NAT)

--create access list for xbox live packets
access-list xboxlive_inbound permit tcp any interface outside eq 3074
access-list xboxlive_inbound permit udp any interface outside eq 3074
access-list xboxlive_inbound permit udp any interface outside eq 88

--define static nat translations, where 192.168.0.100 is your xbox ip address
static (inside,outside) tcp interface 3074 192.168.0.100 3074 netmask 255.255.255.255 0 0
static (inside,outside) udp interface 3074 192.168.0.100 3074 netmask 255.255.255.255 0 0
static (inside,outside) udp interface 88 192.168.0.100 88 netmask 255.255.255.255 0 0

--apply access list to allow inbound traffic on outside interface matching above rules
access-group xboxlive_inbound in interface outside


now, re-run your xbox diagnostics, and boot up. The game and your box will now report that your NAT settings are Open.

later.
