Network ports used by Xbox Live on Xbox One

Port forwarding overview

A network port lets your Xbox One console communicate with the Xbox Live servers and other Xbox One consoles over the Internet.

To let your Xbox One console communicate with Xbox Live, you might have to open or forward ports, which means you'll be making a configuration change to your firewall or network hardware, such as a router. Port forwarding for Xbox One is done on your router or other network hardware, not on the Xbox console itself.

Ports required to use Xbox Live

These ports must be open for Xbox Live to work:

  • Port 88 (UDP)
  • Port 3074 (UDP and TCP)
  • Port 53 (UDP and TCP)
  • Port 80 (TCP)
  • Port 500 (UDP)
  • Port 3544 (UDP)
  • Port 4500 (UDP)

Note Some game developers require you to open additional ports. You should always check the game developer's website to see if the game you're playing needs additional ports to work. We've gathered some ports you might need and have added them to the Additional Network Ports for Multiplayer Gaming forum.

If you're connected to a network through your workplace or school, ask the network administrator to open these ports.

If you receive a NAT warning when you connect to Xbox Live, see the Xbox One Multiplayer Game Solution.

How to set up port forwarding

To get information about how to configure your compatible network hardware, go to the Networking Hardware Information forums. Here you'll find information about your specific router, modem, or gateway, and how to connect it to your Xbox One console.

You can also find information about opening ports on your router at the Port Forward website. This website lists commonly used ports for various apps and games, but if your router isn't listed or you need more help, contact your Internet service provider or router manufacturer.

Tip The Xbox Networking Hardware Information forums and the Port Forward website are available only in English, so use Bing Translator if you need another language.
