are you using this version PS3 ProxyServer Installer (ENGLISH) found in the downloads section? from the top - make sure each step works
use static ip addresses to make this simple - for example
your computer and ps3 are connected by a switch/router whatever and both can connect to the net
set the ps3 proxy in your ps3's network settings to 192.168.1.2 (your computer) don't test it - just accept it
run ps3proxygui - enter 192.168.1.2 (the computer address again) click ps3 mode - click start
enter psn store - it will not allow you - you must update - but in the logs section of ps3proxygui is a link to the ps3-updatelist.txt file - save it to your computer
edit the imageversion to all zeros (000000etc)
edit systemservicesomething to your current firmware - it should be 1.5100 - i think
link the link from the logs to the left side of the replace files tab - and your computer copy (which is edited) to the right
connect to the store again and everything should be working

I just can't make it work. I have the ps3 (pal 1.70) connected to the router via wifi and the pc wired to the same router. DHCP is on and both the ps3 and the computer can access the internet. actually the ps3 cannot access it unless i put it in the router's DMZ. i tried to follow the tutorials closely, tried both softwares and none work. the ps3 obtains an IP but it can't connect to the internet. on top of that, one software is in chinese and the other is not working properly.
the one in english gives me the IP and port and when I press start a windows appears with an ok button and a message. after pressing ok and setting the ps3 properly nothing happens. isn't this the time when I should have seen a window with a browse button? and if the ps3 has no working internet connection, how can i link the demos to the pkg files? i'm thinking all this mess is not worth when a game is just five dollars away. i've spent all morning and afternoon trying to set it up and for what? it's just not worth it...

the guide worked for me except that I couldn't replace the pkg files with a demo from the web store. PS3 would always download the demo to the Photo folder and would give me an error after the download that it couldn't install the demo.
But I just replaced the pkg file with Folding @ home installer and everything worked. Maybe thats some kind of new protection in firmware 1.7

i tried calling all cars on an AUS 1.6 pal - it said cannot be accessed from your account, nothing about firmware...
mind you i can't even buy the game legit, it's not on the aus store, and you can't buy from other stores as your credit card won't match the address, thanks sony, i guess i'll just keep not buying the 10 launch titles that are available....

hey stevefox - if you are using firmware 1.6 then you're on the right track because you've bypassed the update check.
so you'd link the actual internet link for armoured core on the left side in ps3proxy (on the line under your link for the firmware bypass) and on the right put the local address for the pkg you want to install (for example c:\game.pkg)
in the store, download your file and watch it - background downloading is bad! well in my experience on fw 1.6
after it downloads it should install - but wait and watch - it won't take long over the network
thatcher - with fw 1.7 i've heard people say you need to download it IN the background. However your missing files suggest they have gone into your photos directory.
what i read in this thread a few pages back is that you need to use the folding at home link on the psn store. why, i don't know, but people claimed that using that and downloading in background would do the trick. then in your game section you have the option to install. - read the posts backwards and you should find it
