October 23, 2010 // 10:57 pm - Not too long ago jd200 posted a tutorial on How to Set Up Your PlayStation 3 for XLink Kai Online followed by DeViL303 starting a Forum topic where users can share their Xlink Kai IDs for PS3 JailBreak Online Gaming, and today (linked above) have made available a guide detailing how to play online using a JailBroken PS3 with XLink Kai.

Here is the scoop, to quote:

1. First, you must register an account with XLink at You don't have to fill out all details, only * are important.

2. Then, download XLink Kai which is in and simply run the installer.

3. Here comes the difficult part, which is forwarding your port. It is quite different depending on the type of your router. By default, its usually goes at You must login and go into the port forwarding section. See how to port forward your router below:

4. Just set protocol to "both" (UDP & TCP) and the port from 30000 to 34522 then save and apply.

5. Now run the Xlink Kai Evolution VII program, if your are running Windows 7 right click -> properties -> run in Windows Xp SP2 and check run as administrator. (Click allow if there is any prompt window about firewall)

6. This time, it should open up a configuration page. Simply entering your username and password from the XLink account you have created before, also check application GUI if it is set into the web GUI. This is optional as it will have an easier navigation.

7. Click the green arrow to login (If your not already logged into XLink), power on your Jailbroken PS3 console and you should get a DNS Error on startup. You don't have to worry about this as it is normal.

8. Finally, click on the magnify glass with the folder icon below the "?". If it says "PS2/PS3 is configured successfully" , I must congratulate you as you are now connected to XLink and can host LAN parties.

when you get banned you cant log in to psn. no big deal unless all you do is play on the psn. and no using this wont get you banned (as long as you take the proper steps in protecting yourself like psnpatch and setting your router to block certain sites etc...)

oh not only your ps3 gets banned but your psn account also

It's Xlink. It allows to build LAN-like networks over the internet using VPN technology. This is known to work, but only with a select number of games.

I have not tried this myself as it seems you need a wired connection, but for those not willing to wait to play their ps3 online, this may be a quick fix for you.

looks like it may work from the vid.. if you do get this to work please make a post.

The previous thread said more games to come I was under the impression they were going to update the list as the guy made mention of the titles listed so far just being found from a google search... but nothing really became of it.

I remember asking about killzone 2 and sports games (fifa, madden, ncaa football etc) on the previous thread without a reply as well...

Afraid I don't have those games, if you do have them try them out and see if there is a LAN game option, If there is more working LANable games post the names in my thread and I will update list. Im personally not really interested in sports games but Im sure many are and can tell you. I would assume most sports games would include a LAN game option but I could be wrong.

Heres the list of games with LAN option from other thread, this list is a little more complete than the list above, Feel free to add to it yourself RandomAlias if you have time. (I've googled killzone2 for ya and no, apperantly there is no LAN option , also FIFA has no lan option. PES 2011 for th PC has LAN option but not sure about PS3 version.
