What are the firewall (TCP and UDP) port numbers to connect online with PlayStation® products?

If you are able to connect to the Internet but cannot get into Sony Computer Entertainment America’s (SCEA) game servers or network, it may be a firewall issue.  A firewall is a security product that employs a combination of hardware and software to prevent unauthorized users or Internet traffic from gaining access into a private local area network (LAN) or personal computers.  Many routers or modems have a firewall built in to them. In order to allow certain information to pass through, specific TCP and UDP ports on the router or modem will need to be opened in the router or modem’s settings.

Below are the TCP and UDP (firewall) port numbers you will need to connect online with PlayStation® products.


  • Make sure to enable these TCP/UDP ports in BOTH directions and are entered into the TCP and UDP port fields in your router / modem.
  • Contact your Internet Service Provider or router manufacturer for proper instructions on how to input port information for your network.
