Hi i been looking at my port setting on my router and i noticed that on 2 of them the numbers are different and i was wondering if that is right
because i thought on the same line with 2 boxes to enter UDP numbers they had to be the same
The ports are set to UDP but im sure they meant to be the same
in both boxes
1140 - 1234
1234 - 1237
4000 - 4000
thats how the 1st 3 tiberian sun ports look on my router and im thinking mabe that is wrong.
Any help would be cool
Thanks

AFAIK only UDP 1234 is required for TS.

Nice Link Neo, but I would not trust those ports listed by Bettz on the thread you linked to. As White Tib asked and was never answered, Bettz never did site his source for the ports he gave and two other reputable sites both list different ports for Tiberian Sun. Not sure what Bettz or Strike Team is up to, but that post should be edited to display the correct ports so people do not open unnecessary ports which could be a security issue.

Pete, please see below for the correct ports to forward.


Tiberian Sun:
TCP Ports 1140-1234, 4000
UDP Ports 1140-1234, 4000

Source: PortForward.com
http://portforward.com/cports.htm

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tiberian Sun:
Port Numbers 1140 - 1234, 4000

Source: NetGear
http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1166

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If your router has a DMZ option, that can also be used, but it is not as secure as forwarding the correct ports.
Also, make sure you add Tiberian Sun to your firewall exceptions list too.

UDP Ports 1140-1234, 4000

Let me repeat myself: AFAIK only UDP 1234 is required for TS.

Good guess, but for someone who does not play TS, I'm not even sure why you replied if you do not know.

At least you preferenced it with AFAIK (as far as I know).

Neo - GREAT link. Much better than the first one you supplied. Thanks for that!

What makes you think I'm wrong? Got any direct indication that I am?

I tried just opening port 1234 but, wasn't able to connect until after opening the ports indicated by Spo0kyCoW. Thanks!

edit: To elaborate a bit further: I've been able to connect with port 1234 open however, I wasn't always able to connect to everyone. Now that I've expanded my port range, I'm able to connect with everyone flawlessly.

What range made the difference and can this be reproduced reliably?

Just tested with a friend; him and myself have never been able to connect. We've tested numerous times without the range and in light of this post, we can play together. We've both forwarded ports 1140-1234 and 4000 (TCP and UDP). He's using a D-Link DIR-615 and I'm using a Linksys WRT54G (if that makes a difference).

But with UDP 1234 forwarded?

Am I the only person here, who can't understand why the man who administers the server doesn't know what all the ports are, to connect to TS ?

Olaf... netgear.com have the ports there.... seriously.. portscan your server, and see which ones are open, then portscan the clients connecting (with their permission of course), and you'll have the answer to the question.


Edit: I know you haven't changed the serverside ports... because the client-side wouldn't connect.

Yes.

Could you find out with netstat or a network scanner what port TS is actually using?

Restart your pc.

1. Start Windows
2. click start
3. Click run
4. type cmd and press enter
5. A window will come up that's black.
6. in the window, type netstat /an and press enter.
7. write down the ports that are in that list.
8. Start TS, go to the lobby, and start a game with a password.
9. Press Alt + Tab at the same time and minimize TS
10. in the black CMD window, type netstat /an and press enter.
11. Write down all the open ports.... and compare this list to the first list you made.
12. The extra ports that are now open, are the ones used for Tiberian Sun, please post them here.
