i give up with this bypassing marlarky.
i've used the new tool posted here/ edited the file in the dnsconf folder to have the ip of my pc/ added the pcs ip to the primary dns on the ps3 and used the uk 315 and 312 and even the EU update things and still no luck.

Your web browser is the http client. it connects to other http servers that use the 80 port. but that doesn't mean that the client (your web browser) uses the same port...
What it says is that you should NOT ahve another web server running on port 80. it MUST be free in order to work.
basically the program is a custom http server and a dns server (ports 80 and 53) good luck
CodeKiller is right... I don't know why but skype uses port 80. close it, or change the port configuration inside skype. no other workaround posible.
The people who can't run it, should post what they did, and the output of the program... most of the time the problems are repeated.
You are using another program that uses port 80.
Close the program that uses port 80 (like skype) and then run the app.
Most of the time, you forgot to run it as administrator.
read the "README" file. memorize it, read it again... and double check everything... if you still have doubts, ask here

However, while reading the TOS, I did find something rather disturbing:
12. USER MATERIAL AND INFORMATION
SCEA may provide others, including but not limited to its subsidiaries or affiliates, with information relating to your participation on PSN, including your communication and game play provided through PSN ("Information"). You hereby authorize SCEA to use, distribute, copy, display, and publish your Information for any legitimate business purpose, including tournaments and ranking, without payment to you.

It almost seems as if there needs to be a Watchdog group to make sure that everyones legal rights are being maintained as it seems that $ony just doesnt give a crap.

let me put it easier for you: when you install the application, and configure the PS3... Your machine becomes the DNS and HTTP server, so when the PS3 wants to know the IP of any address, it will ask the application... then the application tells the PS3 that the site where the ps3update.txt file is, is your machine! The PS3 connects to your machine on port 80. (see? you can't choose where to put the http server. cause you can't change the ps3 firmware)...after that, the application will return to the PS3 a "fake" ps3update.txt file... so the PS3 will think it's updated to the latest version...
it's really easy. good luck. I hope this explanation will stop the complains about the port number. we CAN'T choose which port we want to be listening on... if we do, the PS3 won't find the http server (doh)...
we could use port forwarding to listen in a higher port, but anyway, all the traffic from your 80 port would be forwarded to another port. and you still need the 80 port free.
