Anyone know which ports the XBOX uses?

MS are releasing an application filter for it, the internet enabled games use stupid port connections (mainly because MS believe multiple people will be playing from behind 1 router/firewall, and they are suffering from the directx "1 person behind a firewall only" problem right now).

Shoudl be interesting to see how it works though.

At this time XBox does not support any online play. There are games however like Halo which support multiplayer through a LAN only. I'm sure much more info will come around as soon as all the online stuff starts coming around.

Actually,

You can use VPN Tunneling software across the net to connect XBOXs. I'll spare you guys the details.

Go to:

or

http://www.gamespy.com

They have developed a tunneling client semi-integrated with their game management tool.
It seems work quite well, but beware of latency problems. Halo can be unplayable above a 200ms ping.
