VPN connection on a PS3

11 Replies 67,294 Views Created 18-02-2010

Does anybody know if a PS3 can connect through an ethernet cable to a VPN

 

Or if it is possible to put it through a lap top first using something like Internet Connection Sharing

 

Cheers.

PS3 > Crossover > Laptop/Desktop > Ethernet/wireless > Router.

Does that help? Sorry didn't understand your question properly.

What kind of VPN?

If it's a bridged ethernet VPN and your client can do ethernet bridging into a local switch, then hook up to the local switch. If it's a routed VPN (as most are), then your client machine will need 2 ethernet interfaces and routing enabled.

 

On windows this would consist of enabling ICS (Internet Connection Sharing), on linux or BSD it'd be a simple matter of turning on packet forwarding and masquerading on the interface connected to the PS3.

I had one of those, but the wheels fell off.

you will have to activate a PPTP connection on your wired router in order to share your vpn connection with your ps3. Include your Consoles IP address in the DMZ settings and add the ports for psn on port fowarding

I have my PS3 connected to a UK and US vpn via my Mac, this can also be done via a PC.

Thanks for a wonderful service.Hidemyass works perfectly for me and the setup guides couldn't be easier to follow, very happy!

On to my question. I have added Hidemyass VPN  to my Macbook and to my iPhone, however it would be nice to add it to my Playstation 3 as well where it actually would do most good since my PS3 is connected to a nice LCD TV. Is this possible in any way so I can use the ps3 web broswser in the same way as I do with my other devices using  StrongVPN? If not, any other suggestions? Last resort I guess is a Mini DVI+HDMI cable from my Macbook to the TV but a solution without cables would be nice. My words about Hidemyass is one of the best Provider For PS3 VPN is hidemyass only   

My hardware is:
Macbook, LCD TV with HDMI connections, a wireless network connection and an iphone
