What is a GAME Firewall?

Our services which offer a GAME firewall is in reference to OVH’s GAME Anti-DDoS mitigation solution.

This Anti-DDoS solution is specialised for game servers such as FiveM, Minecraft and other popular services like Teamspeak 3.

By default, this means that all UDP ports will be blocked via a Hardware Firewall and can be unblocked via our firewall on our panel. This allows for load to be taken off of your virtual server and placed on dedicated hardware which specialises in this.

You can press the ‘disable’ button on our panel to disable this protection on your service. This means that all UDP traffic will not be filtered through OVH’s GAME solution and will reach your server on any port.
