For Gamers on console (Playstation, Xbox):

You must first allocate a fixed IP address to your console, see the following articles:
- Fixed IP on Playstation 3 and 4
- Fixed IP on Xbox 360 and One
 
Why a fixed IP?
To improve the performance of your network and avoid the problems of "strict or moderate NAT".
 
Once the fixed IP is set on your console, it must be allocated on the interface of your box, so connect to the management interface of your box. If you do not know how to connect to this interface, please see: > Accessing the Box Management Interface
 
Once connected, in "Network" then "IP LAN", in the DHCP rental / reservation info section enter the MAC address and then the fixed IP (192.168.1.x) that you previously allocated to your console. Then click Add.
Your console is now on fixed IP.
 
* To find the MAC address of your console, simply connect to the management interface of your box in the "Network" section then "My local network".

The second configuration that remains essential in a good configuration of Gamer on console is to open the ports of your box to your console. To do this, you have two options, either by opening the ports one by one or by creating a DMZ.
1. To open ports one at a time check out the article:> Port Forwarding.
You can find a list of ports for the most common games by following this link.
2. Set up a DMZ for your console.
 
DMZ, what is it and why?
In a computer system, a demilitarized zone (DMZ) is a subnet separated from the local network and isolated from it and the Internet (or another network) by a firewall. This subnet contains the machines (your console) that can be accessed from the Internet.
 
The firewall will therefore block access to the LAN to ensure its security. And the services that can be accessed from the Internet will be located in DMZ.
 
The DMZ makes it possible to open all your ports and ensures a better connection to take full advantage of your live games.
 
On the other hand, it is strongly advised not to create a DMZ for a PC or Mac, which would expose it to important security problems.
 
To set up the DMZ for your console, refer to the article "DMZ".
Your console and your box are now set up for an optimal connection to offer you live parts without difficulty.
 
For Gamers on PC:
You must first allocate a fixed IP address to your PC, see the following article:
- Fixed IP on PC

Once connected, in "Network" and then "IP LAN", in the DHCP Location / Booking Info section, enter the MAC address and then the fixed IP you previously allocated to your PC. Then click Add.
Your PC is now in fixed IP.
* To find the MAC address of your console, simply connect to the management interface of your box in the "Network" section then "My local network".
