Firewall optimization=aggressive work with games/xbox?



  • Does the "firewall optimization = aggressive" work well with games/xbox?  I'm considering switching to this, and I was curious if anyone has had any gaming trouble with it.  Thanks, -pc

    The firewall optimization rule 'aggressive' is only to expires idle connections quicker, you can test it out before asking questions, but it works fine with online gaming.



  • Somethings that you could do to speedup the gameplay.

    1. Make sure nothing is running on half-duplex
    2. If your using a hub, get a switch (gig is overkill for xbox)
    3. Adjust your MTU size
    4. start running ping/traceroute tests and see if there's anything messed up with your internet connection

    As fire as the firewall optimization goes unless your trying to run a bit torrent client while playing xbox adjusting the settingsd from normal to agressive probably won't show much of an improvement. Try it though, if you can run with aggressive and nothing starts acting up the better as the firewall needs to keep track of less connections in this mode.
