October 24, 2010 // 12:57 am - 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.

It's a shame you have to connect the PS3 directly upto your modem, if people could play on XLink Kai using WiFi I'm sure there would be many more people playing.

I appreciate seeing a more detailed explaination in this thread... but seeing the same games copy pasted from thread from 2-3 weeks ago is disapointing.

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...

Usually they support up to 18+ players

Hopefully Dead Rising 2 supports it :$

When I first read the topic title I got excited, then I noticed it mentioned XLink and instantly got disappointed, its just another method to plan LAN games over WAN.

I thought we had PSN access working again.

Load up the games, go to multiplayer. If you see a system link option then you are good to go. frankly you don't even have to be in the correct room or arena. If you and another user want to meet up to play a link game they have not listed (I doubt much of that happens outside of brand new titles), just meet in the lobby of your choice and both load the game.
