BT Router Port Forwarding for PlayStation 4

Hi. I'm really struggling to set up Port Forwarding on my BT Router/Hub. When logging in, my hub home screen looks really old/dated, unlike examples I see from other BT customers online. Added to this, I can't seem to add a TCP or UDP Port with a 'from and to' set of numbers. Nothing is working and so I can't seem to play online games with PS4. Can someone please help? J

I've tried this option and it hasn't been successful. I'll try again, just in case. Thanks, J

Did you add a new rule first by clicking 'add new game or application'?

@J75T 

Is it really necessary to port forward for a PS4 as some of my grandchildren happily use theirs (and Xboxs) without making any such changes?  Admittedly they're not use HomeHubs.

I must admit I did wonder about the need for port forwarding. I guess if the OP needs to set his device up as a server for some form of peer to peer gaming it might be necessary but other than that, I can't see the need.

I agree and this has been a concern for me too. So many other things/devices consume my router and yet PS4 is the only device that's asking me to do this. It's not good.

Re: BT Router Port Forwarding for PlayStation 4

....I've now tried this via my Safari browser and not Chrome and PS4 has now magically appeared. That said, I've applied the TCP and UDP Ports and still no success...!! It seems crazy to be asked to do this by PS4. They're absolving themselves from any responsibility - their support has been extremely poor, unlike this BT Community 🙂
