    [Answered] PS3 Network blocked by school!


    Ok so I just moved into my apartment in a dormitory where I will be working. However, the school has content filters on many sites, including gaming sites. Naturally speaking, I am unable to connect to the internet or PSN with my PS3 when I plug it in!!!!! THIS IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM!!!

    Does anyone know a way around these filters so that I will be able to access the network and resume my online gaming??!!!!
    What is the deal with the proxy servers and how they work??

    I had a similar problem with my ps3 when i moved into a student dorm.

    I put a router between my pc and internet, had a ps3 wireless dongle in my pc and connected it to my ps3, and port forwarded the psn ports on my router.

    Use if you don't know how to forward ports on your router.

    The PSN ports are:
    TCP: 80, 443, 5223
    UDP: 3478-3479, 3658
