Use PlayStation™Network to connect your PS4™ system to a PlayStation™Network server or to another PS4™ system. When you're using PlayStation™Network at an office or other location with a shared network, a firewall or other security measures might prevent your PS4™ system from connecting to PlayStation™Network. If this occurs, refer to the port numbers listed below, which are used when you connect your PS4™ system to a PlayStation™Network server.
- TCP: 80, 443, 3478, 3479, 3480
- UDP: 3478, 3479
For online activities such as competing with other players while your system is connected directly to other PS4™ systems, a different port number is used each time you connect.
Communication might be restricted depending on the security functions provided by your router or Internet service provider. Refer to the instructions supplied with the network device in use, and information from your Internet service provider.
