Xbox 360 Live Tutorial

If you use your pc as a gateway for xbox 360 and want to connect to xbox Live follow these instructions:

First define your trusted zone. For doing this go at "Security"->Define a New Trusted Network"

Then create a network rule. Go at "Network Monitor", select "Add rule" and create the following rules:

Rule 1:

Action = Allow
Protocol = UDP
Direction = In
Source IP = Any
Destination IP = Any
Source port = Any
Destination port = 88

Rule 2:

Action = Allow
Protocol = TCP or UDP
Direction = In
Source IP = Any
Destination IP = Any
Source port = Any
Destination port = 3074

After that move those two rules up, over the default "Block rule"

For Windows Media Center-based computers
You must add the following rules for MediaCenter pcs

Action = Allow
Protocol = UDP
Direction = In
Source IP = Any
Destination IP = Any
Source port = Any
Destination port = A set of ports = 1900,3776,7777

Action = Allow
Protocol = TCP
Direction = In
Source IP = Any
Destination IP = Any
Source port = Any
Destination port = A set of ports = 3390,3932,5555

Hello,

My 360 is connected wireless to/thru my router. Is your post applicable to my scenario and/or do I need to do anything special to make sure that it works ok while the firewall is active on the PC?

Thanks

Yes. I made it by following the instructions of microsoft about XBOX connectivity.

ps. maybe you will have to disable the option "do protocol analysis" on CFP too.

have you defined your trusted zone?
Can you please describe the network rules you have under network monitor?

Hello,

I am afraid I do not understand, for internet is your Xbox connected at all to your PC, or is it just wireless through your router.

If it is wireless through your router then you may need to assign your Xbox a static IP, for it may be your router blocking the specific ports needed.
Windows 8 64-bit; Intel Core i3 2350 [at] 2.30 GHz w/ 6GB RAM

Yes my Xbox is connected to my PC and I have ICS set up with my connection. It used to work fine when I had the Norton Firewall.

Which version of CFP do you have? Another user reported that could not make it work with the version 2.3 but it worked fine with the beta 2.4.

Could you please pm me your network configuration? (the Ips of the router, computer and xbox)

Thanks

Just looked and I have version 2.3. Should I just uninstall and get version 2.4?

The ip of the pc is xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
ip of Ethernet NIC is 192.168.0.1
ip of Xbox360 is 192.168.0.9

I don't have a router as I connect from my Xbox directly to the ethernet port on my PC woth a crossover cable and use Internet Connection Sharing.

I tested the Xbox Live connection again this time it said Network Adapter is wired. Ip Address confirmed, and then the DNS test failed. Yet when I turn off Comodo it connects it passes all the tests.

Yes you should install version 2.4. (the stable version 2.4 will be released on 4th January)
ps.I modified your internet IP for protecting your privacy

If you're using Windows ICS, it has come to my attention that you may have to allow IGMP on the "network" in order for the connection sharing to work. 

Even though it would be covered as an Internet Protocol under the Trusted Zone used for ICS, it may need some separate rules - this will depend entirely on the idiosyncrasies of the individual system.  If it's working fine without the additional rules, that's great; no need to create more.

I sincerely apologize for bringing this post back out, as I see it has not been active for around a month or so...

I've been trying to figure this out for awhile now and I just came across this post.

I am quite unfamiliar with firewalls and networking, so I apologize for my ignorance...But what exactly do I need to do to define a new trusted network zone..I mean what IP Addresses do I need to use?

Thanks for any input, and once again I apologize for my late joining of this thread...

I have installed version 2.4 and set up the rule as stated in the first post and I still can't connect my Xbox 360 to Xbox Live, it fails during the test connection at the IP Address.

How do I allow IGMP on the 'network'?
