While we have already discussed PS4 Error Code NP-39225-1, PS4 Error Code CE-32930-7, and the PS4 Connection Error CE-32889-0 error codes, a new type of error is bugging the users. As of now, many users are facing issues while trying to connect their PS4 through Remote Play on the Windows PC. As and when they are trying to do so, they are being greeted with the PS4 Remote Play Error 0x80001FFF code. There could be quite a few reasons as to why you might get this error code.
To begin with, it might be because of your Antivirus or Defender program might be blocking this app from its usual functions. Or it could also be the failure of the Automatic Connection. In some rare cases, the router’s UPnP might also get disabled and hence users face this issue. Likewise, issues with port forwarding could also spell out this trouble. So in this guide, we will show you how to rectify all these issues and hence fix the PS4 Remote Play Error 0x80001FFF. Follow along.
How to Fix PS4 Remote Play Error 0x80001FFF
To fix the aforementioned error, we will be mentioning four different types of fixes. There isn’t any universal fix for this issue, so you might have to try each of them until you achieve success. Without further ado, let’s begin.
Fix 1: Add PS4 Remote Play to Whitelist
It might happen that a third-party antivirus program or Windows Defender is suspecting the Remote Play to be a threat to your system. In such a case, it will disable most of the functionalities of the app or rather the entire app itself. There are two ways of dealing with this. The first one involves adding the Remote Play to the whitelist. If that fixes the issue, well and good, otherwise you might have temporarily disabled the antivirus while the app is running. We wil be discussing the steps for both, with the Windows Defender program being in focus:
- Head over to the Start menu and search for Defender. Click on Windows Defender Firewall from the search results.
- Then click on Allow an app through the Windows Defender Firewall.
- Hit the Change Settings button (you will need administrative privileges for the same).
- Select the Remote Play app from the list. If it is not there, tap on Allow another app and click on Browse.
- Select the said app and then save the settings. Once that is done, check if you are still facing this error code or not. If it is there, then you could temporarily disable the Firewall as well.
- For that, again go the Windows Defender Firewall page and then click on Turn Windows Defender Firewall on or off.
- Then select the Turn off Windows Defender Firewall option under both the Public as well as Private Network Settings.
Now hit the OK button and see whether the PS4 Remote Play Error 0x80001FFF has been fixed or not. If it is still not fixed, then move over to the next fix, but first re-enable the firewall (nothing to do with the next fix, but it is from the security point of view).
Fix 2: Manually Connecting PS4 System
In some cases, the automatic connection fails to give the desired results. In those scenarios, the manual route is the best route forward. But before we list out the steps for that, make sure you are having the PS4 System with the latest update installed. Apart from that, you might also need a Dualshock 4 Wireless controller and the Playstation Network account. If you have all these requirements, proceed with the below steps:
- Download and install the latest version of Remote Play Installer on your Windows PC.
- Proceed with the on-screen instructions to complete the setup and when that is done, restart your PC.
- Now go to Settings followed by Remote Play Connection Settings.
- Then head over to the Remote Play Connection Settings and select the Enable Remote Play option.
- Once you have enabled the said option, go to Settings > Account Management.
- Then select Activate as Your Primary PS4 and reply in the affirmative in the confirmation dialog box.
- Now connect the controller to your PC. This could be done via the USB cable or Dualshock 4 USB wireless adaptor.
- Once you have connected, sign-n to your Playstation Network account. Check if you are still facing the PS4 Remote Play Error 0x80001FFF or not.
Fix 3: Enable UPnP
In most cases, the UPnP might already be enabled. However, older routers have it disabled. So check whether or not this has been enabled on your router. If it is enabled, then you should consider disabling and re-enabling it. This is because if the NAT is closed on your router, then there are bound to be issues with the Remote Play server. See if enabling the UPnP fixes the PS4 Remote Play Error 0x80001FFF or not. If the latter is the case, then you should consider manually forwarding the ports, which could be done using the below instructions.
Fix 4: Manually Forward the Ports
PS4 Remote Play uses the following ports: UDP 9296, UDP 9297, and UDP 9303. As already mentioned, some older routers don’t have the UPnP and hence NAT enabled. So in those cases, you will have to manually forward the ports. Follow the below steps for that:
- Login to your Router. For that, you will require the default IP Address. In most cases, it should be either 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1.
- Then under the username and password section, enter Admin in the former and leave the password field blank. While some may also go for Admin or 1234 in the password field as well. If you aren’t able to find the required credentials, then Google will be your helping hand.
- Once you are logged in, head over to the Advanced section and there you should find the Port Forwarding option.
- Within that, add the UDP 9296, UDP 9297, and UDP 9303 ports.
- Then save the changes and restart your PC as well as the router. This should then fix the issue with your PS4.
