PS3 Test Debug - PSN Access - How To?
I have recently received some tech support advising me that it is possible for a test unit to connect to PSN to play online multiplayer games alongside regular PS3 users.
I have followed some instructions, as below:
In settings menu > Debug Settings
I changed the "np enviroment" from "sp-int" into "np"
Then created a new system user
Then went into Sign up for PSN account
Filled in info
When it tried to connect to PSN it timed out
Can anybody assist me and direct me further as to what I may have done wrong and how I can make this happen... I have been shown evidence that it is possible and hopefully someone here can help me further
either way console is still for sale and can be found advertised in the trade,swap,sell thread.

This seems stupid, but make sure you have the proper ports for PSN open/forwarded on your router (or, for the sake of ease, just put your PS3 in the DMZ), and try it again, as the environment change was correct!
Of course, re-run the network test when you are done with the above anywho, to make sure it can communicate.

When you DMZ a system, you basically put it direct contact with the internet, so every port on the system is exposed to the internet.
But - good to hear you got it running!

Even though the unit is connecting and allowing me to play online games...
every so often it automatically disconnects from the PSN and a message appears "server connection timed out"
any idea why this could be happening?
Could this be why I am getting re-occuring time outs/disconnections???
Would you be able to give me a simple "how to/where to" if i need to make some more adjustments??
many thanks in advance
Got the unit hard wired and seems to be working ))
I have found some old posts refrencing this issue in the forums.
Thanks for helping

Ahh , it was wireless - that would explain the timeouts. Good to hear its up and running!
