(PS3) Black Ops 2 - NAT Type: Strict - "Servers Not Available" Message

Hi everyone,

 

For the past few days I have not been able to connect to multiplayer or zombies (online) for Black Ops 2 for PS3

 

Everytime I try, I get the same message - "Servers Not Available"

 

People seem to keep pointing me in circles as to how I can change my NAT type to open

 

I have a high internet connection and when I check my PS3, it says NAT Type 2, So here's what I know/tried with no success;

 

1. Port forwarding - I have port forwarded the following TCP/UDP ports (80-81, 443, 5223, 10070-10080, 3478, 3479, 3658, 2005, 3074, 3075, 27014-27050, 4379-4380, 27000-27030, 4500

 

2. I have set a static IP address for my PS3

 

3. I have put my PS3 in DMZ with no change

 

4. I have restarted my modem router

 

5. I have tried the old trick of putting MW2 in the ejecting it then putting BO in with no change to my NAT type (I have tried the trick with MW2, MW3, and World at war, and Black Ops 1)

 

6. The strange thing is, people keep telling me "Black ops 1 and 2 use the same ports", But I can play black ops 1 but not 2??

 

7. My NAT type is 2 on my PS3 network settings list but on black ops 2 its strict (black ops 1 NAT is open??)

 

I know the problem, I can't get online because my NAT is strict

 

Any suggestions how to change my NAT to open on BO2?? Thanks
