[Answered] Keep FTP Access But Remove Internet Access?
Hey guys! I was wondering the options for keeping FTP access of transferring files but remove internet access to the PS3?
I went into my router but there are no "attached devices" tab from the left side of the page. Aren't there supposed to be? That's another separate issue I guess.
Can you go into the PS3 settings somehow and just enable access for FTP? Wouldn't that need to be done from the router instead? I disabled the internet from the PS3 but have no FTP access.
No way to solve this from the PS3 itself? I want access to the PC via FTP through my router but remove internet access to the PS3 to be clear. Thanks!
You are all over thinking this whole thing. Just go to you PS3 and give it an incorrect gateway address.
1. Access the Network Settings from the XMB and change your settings from "Automatic" to "Manual".
2. Assuming that you are on a 192.168.1.X network, give your PS3 a network address of 192.168.1.25 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.
3. Assign the Gateway as 192.168.1.50.
4. Assign the DNS Server as 192.168.1.50.
You can now access your PS3 via FTP from your PC by connecting your FTP client to 192.168.1.25. Your PS3 will be able to access your local network but not the internet and you don't have to do anything special to anything else on your LAN.
You can't use 192.168.1.255 as an IP address as that is a broadcast address.
