How do you connect to it on your PC?
Software?
 
 
If so, then the answer is no.
If you connect through a device like a VPN concentrator or the like, then there is nothing to do on the PS3 so it should be fine.
 
 
I guess the real question is why?  What are you wanting to use the VPN connection for?

ok i use software so that would mean no. and to answer you question the reason is that My VPN server is DMZ and i live on a college dorm with an insane amount of network security and VPN would alow me to bypass the hassle it can sometimes cause.

Yes you chuffing can!? The PS3 has no native VPN software support true but what exactly is stopping you setting up your vpn with a proxy server and connecting the PS3 to that?

 

eg:

 

Outside World             College / University              Your Dorm

INTERNET <---------> Campus <-----------vpn----> Proxy Server <----------> PS3.

You could also set up a bridge on your computer and connect your PS3 to the vpn through the bridge.  This depends on how tight/open the vpn is about it's clients.

 

You could also just share the internet connection your pc is getting through the vpn with the PS3.
