Xbox Live and Cisco IOS

Hi All,


I am in the process of rolling out Cisco 870 series routers to Home Workers.


One user with an Xbox 360 is unable to connect to Xbox Live whilst connecting behind the Cisco Router.


The Xbox connects to the router on Fast Eth Int 2. I have configured the xbox with with static IP address (192.168.105.2), default router (192.168.105.1), Subnet Mask (255.255.255.0).


I have also configured port forwarding as per xbox live requirements.


ip nat inside source static tcp 192.168.105.2 3074 interface Dialer0 3074

ip nat inside source static udp 192.168.105.2 88 interface Dialer0 88

ip nat inside source static udp 192.168.105.2 3074 interface Dialer0 3074


The access list assigned to Dialer In contains the following:


access-list 101 permit tcp any any eq www

access-list 101 permit udp any any eq 88

access-list 101 permit udp any any eq 3074

access-list 101 permit tcp any any eq 3074

access-list 101 permit udp any any eq domain

access-list 101 permit tcp any any eq domain


The xbox now passes the xbox live network test. However whenever the xbox is powered on it fails to connect to Xbox live. Manually signing into the profile takes 1-2 attempts before successful sign in.


Can anybody advise how to resolve this? At this stage I am at a loss! I have attached the config for viewing too.


Many Thanks,


Kevin

Managed to sort it. Looks like it was nothing to do with NAT/Firewall, but more the switch port!


Set the switch Port to which the xbox is connected to as Portfast. Looks like the port wasn't coming up in quick enough time for the Xbox Live sign in procedure.


Might be useful for anybody else!
