He is right... the easiest way is DMZ... but the safest way is port forwarding.

I just use DMZ for the 360 since if someone can hack that thing, they'd be doing us all a favor. No damage has been done to my network yet, 3 people have already tried and got stomped. I am aware, however of rumors about bouncing traffic off of the 360 to accomplish other tasks (such as accessing network files), but have not encountered anything outside of lag generated to cheat on halo.

Windows 7 x64 Enterprise (and XP Pro on Laptop)

Hey guys...

Thanks for the replies... to answer a few questions...

Xbox is wired to the router to there is not bridging the connection to my PC... PC(win7) is wireless as my laptop(XP)... All on the same subnet... All on the same router... Laptop(XP) connects to the xbox just fine... PC(win7) does not?

Thats where the problem lies... It has to be something on the windows 7 side like something firewall ish that is timing out the connection.
