What can I do if my game console reports a 'Strict NAT' error when I try to play online?
The most common reason for this error is due to the way many games handle online matchmaking. Games that do not use dedicated servers for match hosting, like Destiny and Super Smash Bros., connect matches using a form of peer-to-peer networking. This method poses security risks. Like most universities and business, TTU enforces 'Strict NAT' because it is the most secure connection.
