    I'm trying to share my internet over my eMac's ethernet port to allow my 360 to connect to XBOX live.

    During the XBOX live connection test, everything works properly, except the 360 shows NAT as "moderate", so I can't connect to other players.

    My setup is as follows:

    My eMac connects to the AEBS wirelessly, and the XBOX is connected to the eMac's ethernet port.

    In the Airport Utility, I have already set ports UDP 88, UDP 3074, and TCP 3074 to forward to the eMac.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    You can make your NAT open instead of moderate by getting a wireless router that has a sticker or something saying "xbox live compatible". however i dont really think you need it, i am on moderate and i find other players fine.

    the info in there should also help for other games.

    It doesn't work right now with the NAT as moderate. The strange thing is, everything was working perfectly yesterday, but I didn't change anything today.

    EDIT: It just started working, I have no clue how, but I'm not complaining :)
