165w ago - A few months back it was first reported that a Sony ban wave was imminent, and today DJLO over at PSX-Scene reiterated the fact that it's only a matter of time until Sony begins banning PS3 JailBroken consoles.
To quote: Folks, Sniffynose pointed me to this. Since we are all updating now, you ALL need to read this and pay attention
On boot the system contacts the server and uploads the play list etc. this list alone is enought to get anyone that goes online banned as it shows the bootmanger etc. has been running. Here is the list and what they do, I port sniffed this a while ago before I went online with a retail unit >.> because I am not stupid hehe.
All these need to be blocked, web access will still work, updates will still work, but psn and any system messages/ads/communication will be blocked completely. For other areas someone would have to sniff the addresses again to compare. North American Servers are listed.
fus01.ps3.update.playstation.net > Update Server (sys updates)
mercury.dl.playstation.net > What's new ads
nsx.np.dl.playstation.net > playstation store preview
nsx-e.np.dl.playstation.net > ads
(main file exchange connections)
us.np.stun.playstation.net > on boot initiates connection
ena.net.playstation.net > SSLv3 connection after above connection
dus01.ps3.update.playstation.net > secondary update attempt (could force updates)
auth.np.ac.playstation.net > SSLv3 authentication server
service.playstation.net (has multiple IPs if only the ip address is blocked)
creepo.ww.hl.playstation.net (uploads crash reports etc.)
Almost all connections cannot just be port blocked, the port will continue to increment until it connects, you have to block the entire domains. Also a big point is that ALL computers on your network need to have these blocked not just the PS3's MAC because if you are running a proxy for example to get patches, the computer you proxy to will just allow the connections right out to the open unless all local IPs are blocked from these sites as well."

I know that feeling . I want to update, but don't want to end up being screwed from online play. Don't really want to sell it since its BC + has loads of store bought PSN games, and only problem is I can't actually remove my license anymore since I cannot get on PSN. So this PS3 is staying with all the content I guess. PS3's dont go for much now in days either, so its a tough choice. :X
I was just thinking about updating my firmware to 3.50 and going jailbreak free from next month but now I'm worried I'll update and get stuck with a console that can't be jailbroken and can't go online either >< Now to see if I can sell my console to someone who wants a jailbroken one.
I got my PS3 connected to network at home, but to keep it disconnected from outside world I've just typed in random DNS and Proxy adresses in network settings, so it connects me to LAN at home, but when tries to connect to internet it gives me error. Do you think Sony can still track me?
I dont know what this adress really is, but i sniffed that, when my ps3 was sending some paramters like 'vsh' to this adress. so it could me maybe, that the ps3 reports every bootup in jigl mode to this address.
my firewall allows to the ps3 only connections on port 80. my proxy blocks all hosts like *.playstation.* and zeke.scea.com but maybe it's to late for me, because it needed time untill i noticed that my fat was calling home... so than fu $ony.
