Can't connect to certain friends Xbox Live party.

Since yesterday I have not been allowed to connect to a certain friend on Xbox live, however I can connect to him if somebody else hosts the party, it is the same for games I can no longer join him or he join my games.
I have looked at past forums and it seems other people have had a similar problem to myself but have never been given a proper answer, I have done everything like open ports 88, 3074 my Nat type is open and I have cleared cache, turned off my router for 30seconds and turn it back on, checked my Xbox live connection which is fine.
So I don't want any replies saying have you opened ports because I have done, I just want to know is this a problem with a lot more people then the few that have opened posts about it and is there going to be a fix from Xbox for it.

Hey there Sh00ter!
Could it be that your friends NAT is moderate or strict or even changing over time from beeing Open to moderate/strict and therefore prevents you to connect properly witch each?

Xbox LIVE requires the following ports to be open:

    • Port 88 (UDP)
    • Port 3074 (UDP and TCP)
    • Port 53 (UDP and TCP)
    • Port 80 (TCP)


When you manually configuring ports to be open make sure you turn off UPnP on your router. Otherwise UPnP will overwrite static port forwards.
If you've already disabled UPnP or by turning it off did not help could you please tell us what make&model of modem/router you have.

Post back and let us know how it goes.

Hi,

I have same kind of problem with certain friends. When i try to join xbox live party or  even i`m hosting the party i get this message: Connection of xbox live has been lost.

I don`t have Nat problems also and i did this ports forwarding too.

Only that port UDP and TCP 3074 i couldn`t open, there comes error from wrong port name..

I have this UPnP still enabled, could this be the problem?

I have fixed the problem, what happened to me was my whole internet went down the next day after I had been messing with ports so I just basically reset the whole router deleted the network from Xbox reset the whole network from my IP, then I set up my whole router again changed firewall added some ports and boom it worked. I hope you find a easier way of fixing it then I did Ebbe83.

If you have UPnP in use, do NOT manually set up port forwarding, unless you have specific reasons for that (i.e. your console showing the NAT still as strict or moderate).

So if you have an open NAT, ask your friend to check his network for an open NAT.

However, in order to further troubleshoot this issue, it would be great if you and your friend could provide their network setup and hardware.

Maybe it's your friends fault, or you (or your friend) are using a 3G/4G mobile network modem. In that case some cellphone based Internet Providers use NAT in their system that you can't configure, which will lead to connection problems.

For more information, and troubleshooting suggestions look at the link in my signature.

Also recommend your friend to read through the post.

I also have this problem, but I used to be able to connect with this friend until a couple days ago. I have checked all the ports, my NAT is open, and checked my router. Everything seems to be fine but I just can't connect to this friend anymore and its been 4 days since it started. Does this type of thing just go away after a while?
