    Hostname case locked


    Can't seem to have my Xbox One hostname in lowercase anymore. It's not big issue, it stands out in my DNS list which is quite annoying.

    Were there any changes to this in a recent update?

    :)

    "Add Guest" skips guest #1

    On Xbox one, either during a game or dashboard, when the 2nd controller signs in as a guest, the profile is hostname(2), not hostname (1). If I use a 3rd controller it goes to hostname(3).

    How can I get a controller to sign in as the first guest, hostname(1)?

    The reason why it matters is we are trying to continue a game.

    Strange Networking..

    1) The IP addresses OP posted are private class (non-routable) IPs, so there are no privacy or security concerns with posting those. I would not post the full MAC address, but it is not a major issue either.

    2) Your phone is likely seeing the Xbox hostname because your Xbox is connected to it through the PC, which is acting as a bridge. It is showing your PC's MAC address with your Xbox hostname due to the way the bridging is being done (it is not a transparent
    bridge).

    IOW, normal and expected with your setup, which BTW is not ideal for gaming as I'm sure you know.

    Changing NAT type from Moderate to Open

    In the settings for the Pace Gateway you will want to put the dlink into DMZ+ mode from the pace gateway. Should be Settings>Firewall>Apllications,Pinholes,and DMZ.

    from there you should have an option where it has you select which device that you want to set a firewall rule for.

    ( NOTE: this will be by device name/ Hostname of the device.which sometimes might be something like 'UnknownCE774' or something similar... This is if the gateway cannot detect a hostname. So it replaces it with a hostname of unknown<device mac address>)

    So choose whichever that device is for you and the you should have a 'bubble' that you can select which says 'Allow all applications (DMZ+).

    Then hit save.

    This will essentially bypass all the traffic going to your dlink from hitting the Pace Gateways firewall.

    From their on your dlink you would just set up whatever settings you need in the dlink such as port forwarding or UpNp

    Error 80072741 since xbox update

    T0byTheTerr1ble - Thanks that worked for me as well! What is the hostname that needs to resolve properly for the marketplace to work? Would like to be able to test this out further and report the issue with ATT.

    Can't believe it is a stupid dns update error. Anyway thanks again!!

    "Add Guest" skips guest #1

    Heya!

    If you sign out of all accounts,
    power cycle the console
    , and then try to sign back in do you see the same thing happen?

    To be sure we understand is this happening with a specific game? Which games are you running into issues with?

    Post back and let us know!
    Power cycling the console worked, thank you.

    For those who find this in the future,

    Simply turn on Xbox, then using the actual Xbox power button, hold it down for 10 seconds. Then turn Xbox back on, anyway you like. Then try signing in a guest. For me it automatically went to hostname(1) instead of skipping it and going to hostname(2).
