Pfsense 2.1 PS3 and Netflix



  • Ok after days of reading and trying different things I still have no luck.  Here's what's going on. Netflix on my PS3 is not working it will load a movie up  (The red bar fills all the way up) but doesn't load anything.

    UPnP & NAT-PMP is enabled.

    Under NAT Manual Outbound NAT rule generation (AON - Advanced Outbound NAT) Enabled.

    I tried turning off HAVP… No Luck.

    This only happens on the PS3. Netflix plays on my NeoTV and Computers just fine. So I figured its something to do with the PS3 and a setting I have wrong somewhere.

    Any help or point in the right direction would be Great!

    Thank You



  • Hello there!

    have you found a fix for this?
    if so could you plz post what you did to make it work?
    i am having the same issue whit my LG tv, loads up the red bar to full/100% and then nothing happen's.

    -Thanks



  • Yes I figured out my problem.  Squid was blocking me. I went into Proxy Server > General Settings  scroll down until you see  "Bypass proxy for these source IP's" and add your PS3's IP address there. You can add more than 1 IP. Soon as I did that it took off working.

    I did Static my PS3 machines and started UPnP & NAT-PMP then added each PS3 into the "User Specified Permissions"

    Then in Added them into the Firewall.

    I gave them Static IP's to allow ONLY them to bypass things. In my setup in pfSense I used the /32 to make sure and not the /24. Example 10.10.10.10/32

    I really didn't care if the PS3's bypassed everything it's the Computers I'm worried about that's WHY I Static my PS3's.

    I always Static everything I have Control over it better. I'm not a Big DHCP fan, but I do use it for Wireless, BUT I MAC address all my Wireless anyway so nobody gets in.



  • I haven't had problem with PS3/netflix and the 2.1 beta with Squid, transparent proxy.
    Works well.

    Sweet i'll give that a go an see if it will work for my TV (Don't have ps3) :( anywho i am running 2.0.2 and happen to see this post on google so i will post back if it fix the issue or not.



  • So i got it to work and idk if this is a good/right way to do it but all i did was go to " Services >> Proxy server: General settings " and ticked Transparent proxy "If transparent mode is enabled, all requests for destination port 80 will be forwarded to the proxy server without any additional configuration necessary." & added the ip address of my tv but as i was testing i got it to work with out no ip address in the box.

    So idk if this way is the right way to fix this issue but it works.
