PORT FORWARDING

In some cases a user’s router may be blocking communication with Rocket League servers. In order to bypass these measures you may need to manually forward these ports. Note: Every router is a little different, so if you run into problems with this guide try searching the support site for your router’s manufacturer for a more specialized guide on “Port Forwarding”.

ACQUIRE YOUR IPV4 ADDRESS AND DEFAULT GATEWAY

  • Press the Windows Key
  • Select All Programs
  • Select Accessories

ACCESS YOUR ROUTER’S PORT FORWARDING PAGE

  • Open your web browser (ex. Chrome, Firefox, etc.)
  • Type your Default Gateway into the URL Address bar
  • Here you may be prompted with a popup window requesting your username and password
    • Most often the default username is admin and default password is password
    • If this is not your default password click this link: Router Usernames and Addresses and find your router.
  • Once you have enter your router’s configuration page, look for a page called Port Forwarding
    • This may be called NAT, Port Mapping, or Virtual Servers

    • 7000 – 9000 UDP (For Game Servers)
    • 80 TCP (HTTP Connections)
    • 443 TCP (HTTPS Connections)
