So I'm trying to configure my firewall to open the right ports needed to play multiplayer.
According to Ubisoft's Support page:
...you will need to configure your router or firewall to allow the following
network ports for the best possible connection: ACR Ports: UDP: 21200, 7959, 3074 Uplay Launcher: TCP: 80, 443, 13000, 13005, 13200 Achievements UDP & TCP: 14001
But it isn't clear in what direction and which applications need the ports.
I allowed all outgoing and those incoming UDP ports for ACR but I'm still getting BAD upload and STRICT NAT classification.
I temporarily enabled DMZ on my firewall and inspecting my connections when refreshing my online status, I'm seeing these requests for multiplayer:
0.0.0.0:54466 -> 127.0.0.1:45301 (UDP) localhost:21200 -> 126.96.36.199:28783 (UDP) //ubisoft servers localhost:21200 -> 188.8.131.52:28783 (UDP)
And these active connections:
localhost:12001 -> 184.108.40.206:12001 (UDP) localhost:3074 -> 220.127.116.11:12001 (UDP) localhost:3074 -> 18.104.22.168:12011 (UDP)
(nothing is coming in or out from UPlay at this point)
I want to hold off on playing until I can get the right ports set up so I won't have to worry about it later. AFAIK, I'm going to have to open something incoming if I want to/end up playing as host but I don't know what yet. No chance of dedicated servers here.
What am I missing here? Do I even need to open any incoming ports?
