IMG_20190918_191937.jpgIMG_20190918_192409.jpgIMG_20190918_192433.jpghi i am trying to setup steam port forwarding on the new sagem router and need help i have this from steam 

Required Ports for Steam

Which ports do I need to open on my router or firewall for Steam?

To log into Steam and download content:
  • HTTP (TCP remote port 80) and HTTPS (443)
  • UDP remote port 27015--27030
  • TCP remote port 27015--27030
Steam Client
  • UDP remote port 27000--27100: Game traffic
  • UDP local port 27031 and 27036: In-Home Streaming
  • TCP local port 27036 and 27037: In-Home Streaming
  • UDP remote port 4380
Dedicated or Listen Servers
  • TCP local port 27015 (default): SRCDS Rcon port
  • UDP local port 27015 (default): gameplay traffic
Steamworks P2P Networking and Steam Voice Chat
  • UDP remote port 3478
  • UDP remote port 4379
  • UDP remote port 4380
Note:

Many university networks and proxies block required ports for Steam operation - please consult your network administrator to ensure the required ports are open if you are using a university network or a proxy. Ports required for Steam can not be re-mapped to HTTP or reconfigured to a custom port range.

Advanced

For generic Steam HTTP/HTTPS requests, your proxy should allow the following domains:

  • steampowered.com
  • steamcommunity.com
  • steamgames.com
  • steamusercontent.com
  • steamcontent.com
  • steamstatic.com
  • akamaihd.net

Most of the non-web traffic is usually UDP but can be TCP as well. For that, the IPs will all be from the Valve network (AS32590), and a list of those IP blocks can be found here:

I assume then from the list of all tye possible stream scenarios, you only need to forward TCP & UDP port 27015. Is this correct?

I think to run a server you need to forward port 27015 for both UDP & TCP. 

 

I don't have the FAST 5364 so I can't walk you through it unfortunately (maybe Keith can) but basically the external & internal ports should match and you need to forward them to your IPv4 address (type IPConfig in CMD to get that).

 

Historically I've forwarded the following for both UDP & TCP (but I no longer play Steam games so maybe the ports have changed):

 

- 3478

- 4379 to 4380

- 27000 to 27050

 

However looking at your pics what happens if you use the wizard and set two rules. One for Steam Client and one for Steam Server?

EDIT: Sorry forgot to say give your PC a static IP address or reserve on the router

It would have to be the server if connections are going to come in from the internet.

 

You will need to give the device hosting this steam server a DHCP Reserved IP address, or configure a static IP address on the device itself that is outside of the DHCP Pool IP address range.

 

This is what I used & it forwarded TCP 27015 perfectly & I see no reason to think it won't forward UDP 27015. When you Add the rule you will also need to Apply it:-

When I tested it, this is what https://portchecker.co/check reported:-

OP follow Keith's post above. He's nailed it!!

 

You don't really want to open the other ports unless you have to as there is a (small) security risk opening ports.

You can't put the public address in there, it must be the private address of the device in question which will typically be something like 192.168.1.x.
