Hi all,

I'm off to university next week and plan on taking my PS4 however the internet there allows STRICT NAT only. Would there be a simple way ( not adding a router ) of getting past this which won't get me in big trouble?

Thanks

Why don't you just get a personal hotspot? If you have an unlimited data plan I think that's the best way to go.

I don't have one but I think I might have to get one. Could you recommend a good one?

Did they tell you they only allow strict NAT?

We had to register our devices or else that would happen thats the only reason im asking.

Motto: Only you can judge your life. You have to live up to your own expectations.
There will not be a way without speaking to the IT admin. There is a firewall upsteam in the network from your location. You're also more than likely on a Vlan which would make it a little more difficult. You can ask them for a port forward for your room; but there is a chance they may not be able to help.

My recommendation.

Get a hotspot just for gaming. Do not download games on this connection.

Use the internet at school for all of your downloads.

yeah looks like I'm gonna have to make friends with the IT department... I don't even game that heavily but the new modern warfare looks to good to miss considering I've avoided cod for many years
