Configuring a PS3 to use a Proxy Server

These steps will show you how to configure your PS3 to use a proxy server.

Proxy Server Configuration

The first thing to do is to check the VPN and Proxy Server settings on your computer and ensure that everything is working OK. If it does not work on the computer, it will not work on the PS3.

Once you have confirmed that the computer is working correctly, make a note of the correct IP Address and Proxy Port, you can then proceed with configuring the proxy setting on the PS3.

Make sure that your PS3 is connected to your network and that this is the same network as your computer.

You now need to edit the network settings on the PS3 to configure the proxy. To do this, go to Settings and then Network Setings.

Now choose your existing network connection, press right button all the way until you see Proxy Server.

Press the X button on Use.

On the Proxy Server page, in the Address field, enter the IP address of your computer that you have the proxy server running on.

In the Port Number field, enter the Port for the proxy server.

If you have followed our Proxy instructions, the port will usually be 6588 for a Windows system or 8080 for a Mac, either way you should have confirmed this on the computer.

Next, press the right button to continue and leave the UPNP setting unchanged.

Establishing Connection

You will now see a summary of your connection details; press the X button to save them and proceed to testing.

Note, the settings below are our settings, yours will definitely be different

Next, Press the X button now and the PS3 system will attempt to connect to the Internet.

You are connected

That's it ! If the connection was successful you will see the message below.

If you now go to the web browser, you can check your location at

Finally please bear in mind that as you have told the PS3 to use the proxy service on your computer, if the computer is not on, or if the proxy service is not running, the PS3 will not be able to connect to the web.
