    Re:Sony Grabs .PSP for New PlayStation Portable
    by Anonymous on Wednesday April 27 2005, @03:40PM (#15012)
    Info: Once the network connection is established and the PSP gets an IP, it sends a request (specifically a GET for US_holding_page.jpg from http://ingame.scea.com/wipeout/index.html?serviceI d=wipeoutpure_ingamesupport_main&hostId=ucus98612_ wipeoutpure_psp_umd_1 &hostLanguage=en&pspId=&skin=Default) to http://ingame.scea.com/wipeout/index.html using User Agent "SCEJ PSP BROWSER 0102pspNavigator", its Wipeout's webbrowser but it looks as if it's a Sony (Sony Entertainment Japan) piece of code, so this might be a standard browser we'll be seeing. PHP rendering works great, I browsed phpinfo(); and there's not much in there to gush about. Since there are no links on that page, the browser lets you scroll up, down, left and right freely.

    The way I loaded up my own "page" is by setting up my FreeBSD machine with some DNS entries that point ingame.scea.com and webcluster.scea.com and all NS's for scea.com to my internal LAN machine. So then I changed the PSP's NameServer settings to point to the server on my local LAN (FreeBSD machine). When the Wipeout client accesses http://ingame.scea.com/wipeout/index.html it gets my LOCAL file because of the DNS mapping. It's all pretty simple after that. I made a static page with a bunch of spring-board (or portal-like I guess) links to access from the PSP.

    This basically tells our DNS server how to process a request to “ingame.scea.com”. Is my WindowsXP DNS/HTTP server machine, so when Wipeout tries to access “http://ingame.scea.com/wipeout/index.html” (the online server run by SCEA for Wipeout updates) it will go to “” (which is our local server) and read our local index.html. I won’t go into detail on how DNS works, just remember the internet functions using numbers (IP addresses) not letters (names).
