  • BF2 Outbound Ports

    Okay, I apologise for any re-posts, but I didn't feel I could find the answers from forums search results:

    I'm in a University network, and in all their bandwidth preserving wisdom, they have blocked all outbound ports (mostly to stop people bittorrenting etc). The result is this - they allow you to open 10 outbound ports manually.

    I've searched the list of ports that BF2 and Punkbuster requires, please correct me if I'm wrong:

    TCP: 80,4711,18060,28910,29900-29901,29920
    UDP: 1500-4999,16567,18060,27900-27901,29900,29910,55123-55124,55215

    To be honest, VOIP and features like that aren't essential, I'd rather just be able to play the game. My main question is this:

    Which of these ports are outbound, and can BF2 be run off 10 ports (or less)?

    Appreciate any answers, look forward to replies!

    16567 and 16569 are the most important.

    If you like to enable Voip (handy) you need to open 55123 - 55124 aswell.

      Thanks for the reply link. I'll forward those ports now, but I won't know if it worked until they refresh the firewall (every morning at 8:00).

      I'll let you know how it works!

      Just to clarify - thats outbound TCP ports 16567, 16569 and 55123-4
