I want to take this a step further.
I want globally block 3074 UDP/TCP. Effectively disabling live.
Then I want to unblock it for 192.168.1.170.
If I manually configure the MSDash/Live to use 192.168.1.170.
And I manually configure my Evox Dash to use 192.168.1.175.
If I boot with the Modchip off. (ending up with *.170), then Live should work.
If I boot with the Modchip on. (ending up with *.175), then Live won't work.
Now my only question is, if I play a backup while the modchip is on, and try to access Live with it. Will it use the settings from Evox (175) or the settings from the MSDash (170)?
since there has been no confirmation of this method in this thread, i decided to test it partially, but since i did not desire to force a hacked xbox to connect to xbl not thoroughly... unfortunately, i may have gotten banned(99% positive) in my testing method anyways, but i will not know that until tomorrow.
the only thing that did not work for me with conneen's theory was that after several reboot tests, the retail dash network settings would very often accept the the hacked dash ip address - not sure why...
the only way to keep my retail dash from assuming the same manual ip from the hacked dash, was to set the retail dash network settings to dhcp. after this, i could block xbl access for my manually configured hacked dash ip by adding an access restriction rule to my router which allows the hacked dash ip internet access, but blocks udp/tcp 3074 port access specifically.EDIT - after re-reading this, i realize it is not clear how i tested it. to test whether xbl access was blocked to a specifc ip, i tried connecting to xbl through the retail dash which was manually configured with the ip i wanted to block. once i had it blocked, i tested for internet access by launching my hacked dash and making sure i could still download a skin with the same manually configured ip and the xbl blocking rule enabled.
i have tested it several times over the last hour with as many reboot combinations as i can think of and it is still working for me.
if i receive the ban message due to this testing i have done so far, i will have an *expiring in 3 weeks* flagged gt to do some more tests and i have been wondering about the validity of the flagged gt *extra testing* theories anyways. however, if i do those tests, i will write a new post for it.This post has been edited by STICKY_BUD: Mar 15 2005, 10:32 PM
