An addendum to the last post about playing PS3 LAN games over the Internet using a VPN.

In that setup the PS3 was connected to a laptop which was connected via a VPN to the other players. This worked fine, but required two network interfaces. One for the PS3, one for the Internet.

A simpler solution exists. Leave the PS3 and PC connected to the Internet as usual. Create a bridge between the TAP interface and the interface used to connect to the Internet. Follow the other steps in the last post.
This may be slower than the previous setup because the PS3 traffic has to pass through the PC to get to the VPN. It will work though and it takes less setup because you don't need to play with any cables.

Hope you find this usefull. Happy gaming.

  • couple of questions:
    1) do the gateway or DNS entries need to be entered for the bridge?

    2) Should the PS3 and bridge be on the same segment as the rest of the internal network or separate?
    (i.e internal = 192.168.1.x, PS3 & bridge 192.168.2.x)

  • Hey can't you just set up the VPN on the router, something like this
    then no need to complicate it by putting the PC in the middle ...

  • Mannatech survived the investigation that was mounted against it by the State of Texas in its lawsuit against the company, and was not found guilty of any wrong doing. Had there been a single shred of evidence linking Mannatech scam, the state would have launched a devastating legal assault that would have forced the company to stop selling glyconutrients, and possibly stop doing business altogether.

  • You really should be using an Android VPN, and even if you don't think so now, at some point in the future you may consider it as important as your internet connection.
