Any ideas on what ports are blocked on EE.
I'm trying to use LiquidSky and just get a blackscreen however if i VPN it works.

@Bellyman Silly question but why would EE block a gaming website. Perhaps they need to update their servers to IPv6 so it except the connection.

@Bellyman: On which EE network? Home Broadband or the mobile network? Are you going thro' a router?

This is on an Android device over 4G.
So i have no issues via an ISP connection but a blackscreen with EE. I'm 99% sure its a port issue and would like more info on that.

EE block no ports on their mobile network.
However, EE mobile network uses Carrier Grade NAT (CGNAT), which means that you don't get your own public IP address but share it with other users. So you can't be uniquely id'ed on the Net. This is unlike fixed BB. This will cause problems if you are hosting a gaming server & other gamers are making unsolicited attempts to access your server from outside on the Net.

Liquidsky is a cloud gaming services and it looks like a many more are coming even Google and Xbox.
You rent time on a high spec cloud gaming PC so you can play PC games on almost any device. So i've been playing Fortnite on my S8 but the wifi in work is trash so thought 4G would be better... turns out i couldn't even start to try.

I post i added to the liquidsky forum was updated with
"Some mobile carriers have issues with this service- to my recollection those who had issues switched carriers and were able to use this service afterwards. I don’t recall that there were specific ports or anything for this service."
So it can work but depends on something...
