Yet, Another PS4 without OpenNat.. Please Read



  • A while back I posted issues with my PS4 with pfSense and finally just gave up.. I now decided that I want to use my pfSense box again instead of my Cisco Router. I have tried for about four hours on Sunday readying and retrying different things I've read on here and other places..

    My IP for my PS4 is 10.10.1.144
    My Subnet is 255.255.255.0
    I have attached my setup with screenshots.. I've tried forwarding ports.. everything.. I've looked in the logs and made rules when I noticed that the firewall was blocking traffic to the PS4.. Any suggestions?





  • I have able to fix this with my Xbox One.. However, my PS4 still only gets a NAT2.



  • | NAT type 1 means your PS3 is connected directly to a modem.

    NAT type 2 means you are using a router and everything is running fine.

    NAT type 3 means you are using a router, but something is wrong with the connection. |

    NAT Type 2 is what you want while using pfSense.  You're good.
