My friend said he got the info from the web...

Check out this link ***********

He said that is wha he used. I wish I had a PS2 so I could be of better assistance. The DMZ host thing in the article is a great idea though. If you can tell your firewall/router to use your PS2 as a DMZ host, you should be set.

Zack, that makes perfect sense since you need to enable DMZ when you don't know exactly what ports a certain game uses. However, it is always wise to disable DMZ as soon as you are done playing, and reenable it again the next time you want to play, for security reasons. However I know fully well that I'm wasting my breath, but this [b]IS[/b] the [b]security[/b] forum after all!

[b]YES!![/b] Definitely disable the DMZ as soon as you are finished playing. Leaving the DMZ enabled is an open door... Not smart.

Look at your outgoing log on your router after you try to connect with your ps2 and you should be able to find it there.As far as enabling DMZ,you can enable for just one IP.As far as assigning the ps2 an IP I dont think you can do that,it should automatically assign an IP on bootup.
