Keep PS3 from phoning home?
Keep PS3 from phoning home? –
Does anyone have a list of addresses that the PS3 uses to call home to Sony? I would just like to add them to a block list in my router, so I can keep my PS on my network but not allow it to call home to Sony.
How block PSN with DD-WRT router?
How block PSN with DD-WRT router? –
Some one know how to block all PSN activity except ps3 web browser and blackbox ftp server with DD-WRT firmware router?
What exactly needs block and where write it?
There is some demo DD-WRT (build 13120) - Setup
I am have static IPv4, MASK,Gateway,DNS1,DNS2 writed on router, and all consoles/pc working fine with auto ip config.
PS3 FAT 120Gb HDD + External 640Gb
CFW 3.55 kmeaw + MultiMan
I'm also interested in this approach, did some searching and found this
It should block all DNS requests to "domain.com" from passing through the router . If the PS3 tries to connect to some playstation server it needs to find the server IP before it connects, and this should block it. Change "domain.com" to "playstation.net".
iptables -A FORWARD -p tcp --dport 53 -m string --algo kmp --string "domain.com" -j DROP
iptables -A FORWARD -p udp --dport 53 -m string --algo kmp --string "domain.com" -j DROP
dude just connecting to PSN will connect you to Sony's network! you can't access a house using a window so they can't detect you inside the house. you already are in the house!
That's not what he's asking at all....where did he mention PSN ?!
He wants to be able to keep his PS online, so he can FTP etc to it (I assume) but make sure that the PS3 doesn't phone home when it detects an internet connection.
I beg to differ.

Most routers will have an option inside them to block out the internet from desired MAC addresses while still maintaining the network. On my old Linksys Wireless G, this is in the Access Restriction tabs. Enable and add a new policy ( I called mine PS3) and put in your MAC address info for your unit. Keep it set to Deny 24 hours, 7 days.
I tested this by doing an "internet connection test" in the ps3. It obtains an IP from the router, but has no internet access and I am FTP'ing internally right now.
That is one way to do it.

Default Gateway: 127.0.0.1
Primary DNS: Your computer's IP Address, 192.168.0.2 or what ever
Secondary DNS: empty.
This way, it will see everything on your local network, but can't access the internet.
