PlayStation 4 users make use of the Remote Play feature if they have to control their PS4 using their PC, or if they want to connect wirelessly to PS4 from a PS Vita.

Sony has shared a troubleshooting guide that would help PS4 owners to fix performance issues or troubles with connection and so on.

In case of issues or to improve the Remote Play experience, players will have to follow the following instructions:

  • Check the network connection

PlayStation 4 System

  • Go to Settings > Network > Test Network Connection
  • Minimum required connection speed is 5Mbps for both upload and download
  • The network may be temporarily unavailable. Check your network connection and retry. If the error keeps occurring, check the PSN service status

Computer

  • Check the network settings on the computer
  • Open a web browser and load a web page to make sure it is connected
  • Make sure the network NAT type is Type 2 or less. This can be done by launching the PS4 Remote Play application, then click [Settings] and choose the [Information] tab
  • Manually register the PS4 Remote application to the desired PlayStation 4 system

Close Remote Play app and then restart. If it is still not working then reboot the computer and start the Remote Play app. But if this too is having issues, then uninstall the Remote Play app and then reinstall it.

Troubleshooting Connection Issues in PS4

PS4 owner needs to check the internet connection. It is better to have wired connection as it is stronger and maintains a constant speed.

But those owners using a wireless connection need to move their PS4 closer to the router. Owners must wait for other devices on the network to be idle before the Remote Play app. They need to confirm all the ports - UDP 9296, UDP 9297 and UDP 9303.

Windows

  • In Control Panel, click [Programs and Features], and then uninstall [PS4 Remote Play]

Mac

  • Drag [PS4 Remote Play] from the Applications folder to the Trash. Then choose Finder > [Empty Trash]
