Setup PS Vita [PCH-2006] to PS4 remote play through 4G mobile tethering

Spent couple days on this, the information from Sony is totally wrong. Sony page only mentioned to do port forwarding on udp port 9304 but it is wrong, a few more ports are acutally required.

Here find my working setting.

Router Port Forwarding

If your PS4 is behind a router, noted, I mean router, not the DSL modem, then you need to setup port forwarding. If your PS4 connect directly to the DSL modem, no port forwarding ever needed.

– TCP port 9295
– UDP port 9296, 9297, 9304

For Linksys Router

TCP Port #1
External Port: 9295
Internal Port: 9295
Protocol: TCP
To IPv4 address: 192.168.x.xxx
Enabled: checked

  6. It will connect you to the PS4 and the screen of PS4 will be shown!
  7. For subsequence connection, do not click the skip button and just have vita to search for your PS4 because your device already registered to your PS4 system. No longer need to enter the 8 digits code for every connection.

Most of the forum discussion did not mentioned port 9304. Without UDP port 9304, your vita will wake up the PS4 from standby mode, but the PS4 will stay at the blue welcome screen and your vita will not able to begin the registration process and will keep searching from the Internet.

Good luck.
