Original Article available here: http://faq.en.playstation.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/168

If you are able to connect to the Internet but cannot get into Sony Computer Entertainment Europe's (SCEE) game servers or network, it may be a firewall issue. Here are the TCP and UDP Port numbers you will need to connect to SCEE game servers. If you need port numbers for games published by other companies, you will need to contact them directly for additional information.

[Note: Make sure to enable these TCP/UDP ports in both directions and are entered into the TCP and UDP port fields in your router / modem. Please contact your Internet Service Provider or router manufacturer for proper instructions on how to input port information for your network.]

All games published by SCEE may use the following ports for communication with game servers:

  • TCP Ports: 80, 443, 5223, and 10070 - 10080
  • UDP Ports: 3478, 3479, 3658, and 10070

For PLAYSTATION Network:

  • TCP Ports: 80, 443, 5223
  • UDP Ports: 3478, 3479, 3658

PLAYSTATION 3 Remote Play (via the Internet):

If the router in use supports UPnP, enable the router’s UPnP function.

If the router does not support UPnP, you must set the router’s port forwarding to allow communications to the PLAYSTATION 3 system from the Internet.

The port number that is used by remote play is TCP Port: 9293
