Designating Your PS2 as a DMZ Host
With a Static IP


Setting up the DMZ should clear up any port issues with your router. Also by setting up the manual config on the PS2, DNS server related issues (DNAS Errors 611 and 612) can be addressed.

All of these instructions assume that you are using the default settings for the router's IP and DHCP server.
