How do I see what current open nat games are in use after applying them to lan ips?

I have two PCs' and 2 PS4 consoles in my lan. Usually two pc's are in use at any given time. Call Of Duty Cold War is giving me so much grief I wish I could get a refund.

On any of my devices, after initiating / applying the game profile in open nat to all lan side gaming devices, the game itself shows NAT is OPEN... but when I go to play, it won't matchmake at all or it takes over 8-10 minutes to matchmake. I have tried using opennat Call OF Duty Cold War in the Open Nat as well as using the DMZ option... still having issues
When I go to the connections tab on the game network status in the Cold War settings, all servers are really high ping (like North America servers are even in the 1000's in ping rate)

If I turn on my mobile hotspot, the game matchmakes as expected and puts me in a match within 30-45 seconds at most.

If I activate a VPN on my gaming desktop on my Asus AC5300 router, I get zero issues there too.

I'm pulling my hair out on this issue.

Is there a way to see which games are active in open nat? Clear out open nat options and start from scratch?

Have you tried port forwarding instead of using the Nat tool?
Do you have upnp on or off?

I still have the same issue with cold war even if I use port forwarding as well as directly connecting to my modem. Weird I know.

Looking back on my history; I have been through this with multiple consoles.

Try this:

The going back to basics method.

Try disabling the dmz and removing the port forwarding, and removing static ips for the consoles, Let automatic dhcp and upnp do their job.

Set the consoles to auto network setup on their settings pages.

This worked for me historically looking at an old thread. Bear in mind, it's from 2014 though. (Have I really been here that long)

The essence is to not mix upnp and port forwarding (or dmz), use one or the other.



Failing that search all the forums for NAT, COD, PS4, XBOX etc, there are multiple help threads on these issues.

I feel the pain as a former cod player.
