Borderlands 2 timeout

I could not host or join most friends’ games in Borderlands 2. It probably tries to use uPNP, which I don’t enable on my router.

Searched for clues on forums (incoming ports to forward) and finally got it working:

  7777 (TCP/UDP)
  9989 (UDP)
 27900 (UDP)
 28900 (TCP)
 28910 (TCP)
  6500 (UDP)

I know for sure 6500 is necessary, but maybe some of the others are not.
