    Port 53 is DNS period, You can't use it for anything other than the DNS service. You do not need to "Open IT' for xbox. The router will pass dns information without any changes in nearly ALL cases.

    See the following article.

    (Basically, you don't need to portforward port 53 it is "OPEN" and it just has to be working at the router level.)

    When you set the DNS information on the Xbox to the correct IPs it will work.
