Default XBOX - firewall rules

Connecting to the game servers works fine. However, the firewall keep
thinking that it is getting UDP flood attacks, and blocks the IP.
So the game connection terminates.

I have tried setting the XBOX IP as the DMZ, still no good.

I don't want to switch off the 'flood' detection (No Halo jokes please).

Does anyone have or know of a set of XBOX firewall rules.

Thank you.


Here's how I got mine to work:

Firewall/Router is (substitue for your firewall/router
internal addresses)

1. Set X-Box to have static address (follow instructions on DVD for this),
ie, with gateway address of, netmask etc
2. On your firewall add new rule to allow:
Inbound from (ie Internet) to (your X-Box)
Protocol: TCP Ports: 3074
Protocol: UDP Ports: 88 and 3074

Outbound from (your X-Box) to (ie Internet)
Protocol: TCP Ports: 3074
Protocol: UDP Ports: 88 and 3074
3. Active firewall rule (ie restart)

and hay presto....got this working on Watchguard SOHO and all is fine.
