Just stumbled on a much better way to the guy that gave me advice... no programs whatsoever. Network settings > Internet Connection Settings > Custom > Set everything as normal) > Set Primary DNS IP to 22.214.171.124. Works flawless.
Thanks for the help though, and i hope this helps others that can't connect via proxy progs.
I know I probably shouldn't trust the IP you gave to us to try but I absolutely HAVE to. I have been messing around with several of these proxy apps now for hours trying to just avoid this annoying move by Sony with no success at all. All I seem to get are exception errors, etc.
However, I try out that IP once and i'm home free! I cannot thank you enough! I know I shouldn't trust it like I said but i'm absolutely getting nowhere with these applications and I refuse to lose my OtherOS support. I just feel I have no other options but to trust it if I want to be able to get online still and I really, REALLY want to! I just hope this decision doesn't bite me later
If anyone thinks they can help me get one of the apps running, please by all means, I would love you for it! I'm very tech saavy but I have never messed around with proxy servers before so i'm completely lost and have no clue what i'm doing wrong. I'm also running Windows 7 32-bit Ultimate, hope someone can help, i'd rather no use this foreign IP for long if I can help it.
