Blocking all playstation.net but still get "store ticker" info?
Just wanted to throw this out there. It's probably nothing to be concerned about, but it still bothers me anyway.
I've set up my CFW PS3 to have intranet/internet access but without PSN, and I've blocked all playstation sites. I did this with a router rule that blocks all URLs by keyword "playstation". This works, because once activated, system update will return "the server could not be contacted", trying "what's new" doesn't work, and so on...
However, the little ticker in the upper right is still getting the updated news bits. I'm wondering how, since according to what I've read, that URL is also in the playstation.net domain and therefore should get blocked. I ran ps3proxyserver to log what the ps3 was requesting, but the only things that showed up were the expected playstation.net URLs.
Anyone have an idea how to solve this? I'd just like to see EVERYTHING properly blocked. Next I'm going to find that URL's IP and try blocking it that way.
