    When someone finds out how to set it up correctly using a Mac and Safari could you share the instructions with me? I am a noob when it comes to using a proxy server. I don't even know what it means but, although its fast as it is now, if it helps me download faster on my PS3 I am willing to try it. Thanks in advance.

    *Goes to look for the definition of proxy server*

    Did you make sure you entered the IP address in the right part? There's 2 bits in the config that says, "listen-address", one of them is an example paragraph and the other is the proper part to put it in (the line that doesn't start with a "#". Make sure you put it in the right part

    I haven't tried yet, I'll try now and report back

    EDIT: Seems to work fine

    Yes your pc must be on.

    Perhaps the OP could shed some light on how he managed it without any errors. I'll try when I get home but thats not for another 4 hours.

    Now I know how tech support feels lol.

    Karbine, have you made sure than you've enabled Proxy support on your PS3 and it has picked up the correct address?
    I'll update the original post with my post from another thread with the instructions.

    You can run it wireless, my buddy did that and had good results.



    Thanks for the reps guys, I'll update the OP with instructions

    It's kinda funny realizing how slow it was before, and that there was a simple fix for it

    ok... let me get this straight...

    i have to set up the lan options on my pc with the loop of 127.0.0.1 and the port of 8118.

    then i go into the config for privoxy and change the loop address to my own ip address. at this point do i input just my proxy address or do i put the :8118 in as well?

    i save all of the changes and restart my comp?

    then i go to my ps3 and enter use proxy plus my ip address in the proxy address field. right?

    my pc keeps telling me that it cannot open that port... what am i doing wrong?

    To the people that said thanks, You're welcome! I'd also like to say thank you to the other members who helped out others get this sorted while I was gone.

    If this works for enough people maybe we could get it stickied?

    It's rather frustrating how slow it was before after seeing this, and makes me wonder what the real reason many people experience slow PSN download speeds is because it's obviously not the ps3 or the PSN servers!

    Well it's not a perfect solution, but it is a surprisingly effective work around. As I said in the OP I'm not sure how this will effect your online gaming so if you guys notice any issues with that please post them up.

    I would advise those doing this to check your computer's IP address frequently. If it changes (due to DHCP), then obviously the proxy server will not work.

    If some of you need help setting a static IP address, I can help you through how to do it.

    There *might* be, ya never know. Plus this does create quite a bit of traffic on the pc end of things but since online gaming doesn't use much bandwidth it *should* be fine... though I do think you'll get a very slight increase in ping times which probably won't be noticeable.

    Yes a static IP is recommended in the OP, if you feel like writing up how to do that I'll gladly edit it into the OP.

    No effect that I've noticed really, but if you do have any please post them up.

    If enough of you guys ask the mods it might happen (I'd feel weird asking for my own thread to get stickied)
