Final Fantasy 11

Hi,

There's a thread about this in one of the forums:

http://portal.plus.net/central/forums/viewtopic.php?t=52688

We've been trying to get a list of the ports for the game as so far we've only had a range of about 15,000 which isn't possible to create a rule around.

Quote
FFXI and PlayOnline requires the following ports to be allowed through for the following reasons:

TCP 25, 110, and 443 for e-mail
TCP 80 for web access
And dynamic ports 50000 to 65535 for various communications

UDP ports 50000-65535 for various communications

There should be a setting to allow you to specify that when your computer requests a port, it will trigger the rule to allow access activating all the other ports for a specific communication with a server. You can set it so that one or more of these ports will trigger the rule:

TCP 51220 (Authentication Login)
TCP 53001 (FFXI Patch Connection)
TCP 54001 (FFXI Connection)
TCP 51300 (PlayOnline Menu Update)
TCP 54000 (PlayOnline Patch Connection)
TCP 51240 (PlayOnline Redirection Connection)

or you can just set it as a range from 51000 to 55000 TCP.

It is usually safe to make it so at out going request on that port to a certain server will allow that server to connect back on the other ports. You may have to fiddle with the settings a bit. Maybe I will post up a guide at the end of the month on configuring your firewall.

Please find a place for your router configuration that has "PORT TRIGGERING" or "APPLICATION TRIGGERING" and enter 51000-55000 TCP for the trigger ports! Then input all the ports as specified in the manual to allow access after those ports are triggered.

All this information should be on one line, for ONE APPLICATION. So, an example of this might be:
TRIGGER START PORT: 51000
TRIGGER END PORT: 55000
TRIGGER TYPE: TCP
PUBLIC PORT: 25, 80, 110,443, 116,118,443,50000-65535
PUBLIC TYPE: BOTH
ENABLE: [checked]



what about these?

Hi,

The problem here is that we can't create a rule that has that many ports associated with it. I've sent a seperate ticket from another customer on to the network guys about this game to see if rather than using ports we can use the server IP addresses, will see what we can do.
