And here is an article from Microsoft showing the ports Xbox uses:

One thing about double NAT you may or may not realize. This occurs when you are running behind another device/router on your network. For example, if your cable company box is has a router, and you are getting your DHCP address from that device, you are double NATted.
They also say (on xBox) anyway that if you enable IPV6 that port forwarding is not required. I do not know how this will work on the behind the router scenario above. But certainly your ISP and routers all need to have it enabled, including the setting on xBox.
Alternatively, you could use the Alien, as it's designed, and remove the first router, so it is your DHCP server. Or you can configure the Alien in Bridge Mode, and port forward on your DHCP device.
xBoxOne ports, 56455 BOTH
xBoxOne ports, 88,500,3544,4500 UDP
xBoxOne ports, 3074 BOTH

@Edward-Escobar I could not find any information directly from Sony, but I found this:
-To get a connection with NAT Type 2, you will want to forward the following ports to the IP address of your PS4:
TCP: 80, 443, 1935, 3478-3480
This may vary per game, so a quick google search for "port forwarding rules required for <insert game title here> PS4" may give you different results.
