    Having problems hosting private games on xbox live. Am ok hosting a quick game. Have had 10 people in with no problems. When I try to host a game for friends only, it only allows one to join.….others get game no longer available messages. I have set the games with enough friends slot etc. Is there any config I need to do in order to let friends in numbers?

    What game you are trying to host would be a good start :). Are your Newtwork settings all open ?? To check this goto the connection screen on xbox dash and wait for it to connect and press Y it will list your NAT, MTU etc settings these should all be rated 1 - this means you are open and can have anyone join you on live.
    What broadband speed do you have?? as this may effect how many you can host - depending on the game.

    It happens with all games. My example was pgr2. I have no problems hosting public games with lots of players but cannot host a game with more than 1 friend..... I do not get any errors on screen but they get cannot connect message. I get the problem when trying to join them when they have set the game up.....I have 512 connection.

    The same happens with ghost recon and rainbow six 3

    Thanks for the reply and will check that my connections are all open
