Steam



  • If I change "Default LAN >any" to Block I'm unable to log on to Steam, if I do the reverse I'm able to connect to steam.  I've tried opening the following ports in LAN and WAN at different occaision and still now joy. What am I doing wrong. I want to keep the Block rule active at all times.

    UDP  27000-27015
    UDP  27015-27030
    TCP  27014-27050
    UDP  4380



  • Sleeps,

    I've setup Steam with the following Ports:

    Steam Client: TCP
    27014:27050

    Steam Client: UDP
    4380, 27000:27030, 3478, 4379

    Steam Server: TCP/UDP
    27015

    ;)

    Created the same rules but still no access.  Also enabled logging but nothing showing in the logs.  Will have to spend sometime experimenting.  (However in the meantime will unblock last rule "LAN Net rule" so that I could have access).

    Thanks for your help…

    Reset the firewall to default and setup the rules from scratch and its now working.

    Thanks again

  • I have no issues with steam at all and i did not have to open any ports for it.

    Are you sure you even needed any ports opened once you reset your firewall.

    Under LAN steam works without any ports opened/forwarded, it's not the same for LAN2 everything is locked down.
