So I've heard about the whole 220.127.116.11 DNS switch thing to get on PSN, my question is, does anyone know what exactly that DNS server is doing to the packets? I run my own squid proxy, and I figure why route my traffic somewhere I don't know a thing about if I can just trick out squid myself. Also seems like this could help with inevitable ban evasions (I mean everyone has to know they're coming right?)
Anyway, if anyone knows what exactly that DNS server does (I'm guessing it just greps out your reported firmware and replaces it with 3.55), but does anyone know more technical details? Thanks!
edit: Also, what file is it that contains my recently played list or whatever? Ideally I'd like to configure my own proxy server from my same external IP and clear out any evidence that I've been running snes9x and other homebrew every time before I connect to PSN.
edit2: I guess I could just run wireshark on my squid proxy server, and attempt to login to PSN and capture the traffic, but the only problem if I do that would be Sony would see that "wutangrza" (not my actual PSN ID) had previously logged on with FW 3.50 and is now attempting to do it with 3.41. I'd like to avoid having that happen if at all possible, which is why I'd like to know the technical details of what 18.104.22.168 is doing. Anyone know the guy that runs that DNS server?
