October 15, 2010 // 11:56 am - A few months back it was first reported that a Sony ban wave was imminent, and today DJLO over at PSX-Scene reiterated the fact that it's only a matter of time until Sony begins banning PS3 JailBroken consoles.

To quote: Folks, Sniffynose pointed me to this. Since we are all updating now, you ALL need to read this and pay attention

On boot the system contacts the server and uploads the play list etc. this list alone is enought to get anyone that goes online banned as it shows the bootmanger etc. has been running. Here is the list and what they do, I port sniffed this a while ago before I went online with a retail unit >.> because I am not stupid hehe.

All these need to be blocked, web access will still work, updates will still work, but psn and any system messages/ads/communication will be blocked completely. For other areas someone would have to sniff the addresses again to compare. North American Servers are listed. > Update Server (sys updates) > What's new ads > playstation store preview > ads
(main file exchange connections) > on boot initiates connection > SSLv3 connection after above connection > secondary update attempt (could force updates) > SSLv3 authentication server
(destination servers) (has multiple IPs if only the ip address is blocked)
(Error Reporting) (uploads crash reports etc.)

Almost all connections cannot just be port blocked, the port will continue to increment until it connects, you have to block the entire domains. Also a big point is that ALL computers on your network need to have these blocked not just the PS3's MAC because if you are running a proxy for example to get patches, the computer you proxy to will just allow the connections right out to the open unless all local IPs are blocked from these sites as well."

what reason do they have to ban consoles? They just update firmware and stop you going online. I really dont think they should be banning consoles as that could result in some people never buying games for their console again as they can't play online etc with them.

I have DD-WRT v24 SP2.

I no longer have DD-WRT installed. I changed to Tomato when I upgraded to a ASUS RT-N16.

But I remember it having the capability somewhere. The only thing that comes to mind is that you may need to remove the quotes from the code I posted for use in DD-WRT.

How do you block those servers with a Linksys router? I assume it's within the Access restrictions tab of the router's address, but I'm not sure where to go from there. If I enter it under "website blocking" then I'm only allowed to block 4, but I'm not sure if that's even it. I also see where I can block ports, but it looks like that's designed only to enter a range of numbers, not these addresses. Thanks if you can help.

Well, the only drawback for me is that I would probably not be able to get dlc for certain games. Hmmm all-in-all not the end of the world!!

Seconded. This is the reason why PC online gaming sucks.

i think in the actual situation its the best to use two ps3.

one jailbroken and one for psn games, etc.

jailbreak is too new to risk of being getting banned from sony. also its dumb to play online with the fresh jailbreak devices because so YOU give sony the tips to find them.

play with them online when the coders made them undetectable and unpatchable.

oh well looks like I will pull out the network cable and play the games offline. If I wanna play online I use my other non hacked ps3 instead
