    Step 1: Get hamachi
    Step 2: Join/Create a netwrok
    Step 3: Connect PS3 to Computer.
    Step 4. Chnage PS3 settings blak blah blah
    Step 5. Select LAN on a game

    Will this work?

    PSN is down, so I don't think this would work.

    The PS3 does not have that much in the way of LAN compatible games- http://www.co-optimus.com/system.php?id=2&...p;direction=ASC

    Equally I do not know if there are any ping checks similar to the 360 and if they exist whether they have been patched out by any custom firmwares.

    Anyhow assuming there are no checks and you have proper VPN software (hamachi is not really that good for this sort of thing as it has some odd ideas) set up correctly (that is to say VPN software that allows connections behind your firewall and if that sentence does not set of warning bells I suggest a bit of reading on networks in general) it should work. Worst case scenario you have to block all the PS3s from the internet and go local network only (VPN makes it so it appears you are all on the same network).

    I tried that very recently and attempted to install it---thing is, Norton detected it having several viruses hidden inside, and it automatically deleted it. O-o

    EDIT: Actually, I may have actually downloaded it from a place that was not the official website, but I'm not sure...can anyone confirm this? [​IMG]

    Maybe jazvdb but such methods are always worth exploring- especially if Sony have done a half decent job this time and managed to reduce the network ability of hacked consoles.

    Equally it can lead to other nice things one would not usually go in for on the official network.

    @aguyyyy [insert jibe at norton] but either way xlink kai has been around for many years now and although lacking some options seen in the higher end VPN methods/programs it does the job for playing games most of the time and has a deservedly good reputation.
