  • Ports used by BF2 according to EA email

    This caught my eye on the EA forum:

    http://forum.eagames.co.uk/viewtopic...2628f112a5dcba

    It contains an EA email to "kozmic" who suffered from connection problems. I am posting this
    1) because there are many more ports in the list then I knew of (>15!)
    2) because I remember a discussion I had here about wether you need to open ports for bf2 voip.
    This email confirms that you do have to, since the standard voip ports 55123 55124 are in the list.

    This is the email:
    Hi Kozmick,

    Thank you for contacting Electronic Arts. Iím sorry for the difficulty that you are having with Battlefield 2. Did you get any error message when you experience the crashing?

    Connection issues typically are caused by one or more ports being blocked by a firewall, router, or even your Internet Service Provider to help maintain security. These ports are the doorways used to send and receive information between your computer and the server. You must configure your router/firewall to have the game's ports open in order to connect to the servers properly.

    The ports for Battlefield 2 are as follows:

    UDP ports:
    27900
    29900
    29910
    27901
    55123
    55124
    55215
    16567
    1500-4999

    TCP ports:
    80
    29900
    29901
    29920
    28910
    4711

    You may also need to have your Internet Service Provider open these ports for you. For help configuring a firewall or router you may need to refer to the manufacturer.

    If you are using GameSpy Arcade, please check the requirements listed in the Working Around the Firewall/Proxy section of their site:

    Please click here to go to GameSpy Arcadeís firewall page.

    To further assist you, please provide additional system information. Please send me this information from a program called dxdiag.exe. To do this:

    ∑ Go to Start -> Run.
    ∑ In the box, type the following: dxdiag
    ∑ Click "OK"
    ∑ Click the "Save All Information" button on the first screen of the application.
    ∑ Then on top of the "Save As" box that pops up, select Desktop (if it's not set to save there already), then click Save.
    ∑ Finally, attach the dxdiag.txt to your email reply.

    After we receive this file we can continue troubleshooting the issues at hand and hopefully come to a solution.

    Should you require further assistance about this or any Electronic Arts games in the future please visit our website and review our extensive Self Help knowledgebase (http://support.ea.com)

    Why did they make the game such a giant security risk, with all these open ports? Most other games work quite happily on a single port.

        That's the problem with new players. They keep finding old stuff that's relevant, and then they go and bloody post. Ban the lot of 'em. :D

          Those are outgoing ports, which are irrelevant for all but the most security insano.

            Anyone know what ports are used for what (or where I could find the info)? I been looking for more details about the BF2 ports for some time now.

            The reason is because we are two people sharing a connection. We can both play BF2 together without any problem. But I am unable to make VOIP work for both. Only the firs person to connect will have VOIP. On the second machine, the little "speaker icon" is not there as if the game was unable to connect to VOIP.

            So iI was hoping to have more details to maybe add a few rules to the firewall to solve this. Any info would be greatly apreciated.

              By default, the VOIP server ports are 55123 and 55124. I don't have any more detail than that. I can only tell you "it worked for me".
