Used PS3 games online
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 have open 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.
PlayStation®Network and SCEA Game Servers
All games published by SCEA (first-party) and the PlayStation Network may use the following ports for communication with SCEA (first-party) game servers:
- TCP Ports: 10050, 10051, 10040 - 10060
- UDP Ports: 50000 - 60000
