    What TCP/UDP port does the Wii use to pull updates?

    Ever since I installed my new firewall, it's blocked. Anyone know? I haven't found it in the logs on my firewall yet, but I'm still looking, and Google/forum searches pulled nothing (unless I'm blind).

    And on an off topic note, anyone know what port the 360 uses?

    If it is of help to anyone, here are the ports for the Wii:

    TCP: 28910, 29900, 29901, 29920, 80, and 443
    UDP: Allow all outgoing

    Depending on the firewall you have, that can be intense to setup. Here's what I did. All outgoing connections for both TCP and UDP are allowed by default in my setup, so that takes care of the UDP.

    I created a rule for the range of 28910:29920 ... 80 is HTTP traffic, so by default should be fine. 443 hasn't been used since I got this working, so I'm not worried about it. Was able to connect and update just fine.

    XBOX360 uses the following:

    TCP 3074 and UDP 88,3074
