Hi all,
I want to start hosting on SimSig. Could someone please help me set up port forwarding on a Virgin Media Hub 3.0 and then also test the connection with me?
thanks

A quick search on google will tell you how to port forward on that hub.

You need to open ports 50505 50507 50509 TCP and UDP i always do.

Then run a game as a server (enabled in the loader after the sim and timetable has been selected) choose port 50505 in the loader.

Once the game is up you can head to https://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/ and check that it says port 50505 is open.

You do not need to open UDP for SimSig. Less is better.

Would I need to create a 'new rule' on the Virgin Media port forwarding page?

This is likely the IP address of your PC. To make your life easier you should assign a static IP to your PC that will be hosting simsig. Then set up the port forwarding to this static IP.
