Is it necessary to forward ports for a PS3?

I bought a PS3 a few days ago and wanted to know is it necessary to forward ports on my router for the PS3? I don't know much about PS3 networking so please let me know what information you would need and I'll provide it.

If your router supports UPnP, which almost everything in the last 4-5 years does, then you are fine, as the PS3 supports UPnP as well.

"Our PS3 is connected to the router here, and we never changed any settings to the Router to make it work.

So no you don't need to open any ports.

And this question is probably gonna get closed since it's a game related question."
