    Still works.

  2. fex says:

    Still works, my disk drive died on my PS4 days ago and I lost all my downloads including PT. Thanks guys. BTW, SEAGATE drives keep dying on me, I put a 4tb on the PS4 and lasted like 4 months.

    Still working in May 2017.

    • Mike says:

      Did exactly what the guide says and it comes back as failed on Internet connection test and then Cannot Download P.T any advice?

      • Drew says:

        Happened to me when trying to redownload with a Mac and virtual machine. Make sure you put in the correct “IP4” address on the PS4 and not “IP” address. Use ipconfig and get the IP4, and make sure no firewalls are blocking your connection. Also try deleting squid then reinstalling. Hope you get it figured out.

      Still works for me too May 14 2017.

    I followed all the steps properly, and I have P.T in my library, but when I start downloading it it says preparing and gets to 1% but gets cancelled afterwards… Not sure what the problem is *sigh*.

    • Dante says:

      Same issue, it didn’t work on my ps4 pro….

      • Drew says:

        Did you make sure that no firewalls are blocking the connection? Worked for me on PS4 pro using a Mac and virtual machine which is even a bit more complicated. Try deleting squid and reinstalling.

        • Jill Sandwich says:

          Hey guys, it worked!
          It turns out that the issue was that my PS4 was using a WiFi connection while my desktop was using LAN. I figured I should try using my laptop instead, in order to get both devices on WiFi.

          So I removed Suwi from my desktop and followed all the steps again on my laptop, and it actually worked, P.T is running fine now! Thanks for the comment Drew.

          • Dante says:

            Thanks Jill!! It worked now!

            For some reason, this proxy only works LAN to LAN.

            I was using vmware + win7 on macbook. USB ethernet + bridge worked.

          • Drew says:

            Glad you both figured it out!

  5. Jez Noir says:

    Still works – thank you so so much, you absolute legend!

  6. Bizz says:

    Still working as of June 13

  7. Deto says:

    Still works.

  8. ardnegan says:

    Wow, thank you so much, it worked!

    and #FucKonami

  9. Karny says:

    Still working as of 29/06/2017.

    Took a bit of work to get running because squid was crashing after the installation – but after manually running some of the commands in c:\squid\sbin I managed to get it running.

    Thanks to everyone involved in this method – it’s great to have access to P.T. once again!

  10. Danniac says:

    It still works to this day, but I had a problem installing the software on pc. I just needed to uninstall, turn firewall off, install again and turn firewall on.

  11. Tyler says:

    Sorry This No Longer Works. When Testing Connection It Fails at “Internet Connection”

    • Drew says:

      It does still work, and mine did the same thing originally. Make sure both the PS4 and computer are BOTH connected with Wifi or Ethernet, can’t be one with each different type of connection. Then try removing and reinstalling squid. Others have had your same issue and figured it out.

    • Stephen Webber says:

      I tried to reinstall P.T recently using the described method and like you Tyler, it would obtain my IP address and fail at the Internet Connection part. For about 10 minutes I was confused and frustrated as to why. At first I thought it was due to there being different device network connections (My PC was using Wi-Fi, PS4 was using LAN) so I set my PlayStation up to also use Wi-Fi. Then when I went to my PC I found the solution straight away. I clicked my network icon on the Taskbar and selected Properties on my PC ‘s Wi-Fi connection. Under Network Profile settings it was set to public (PC was not discoverable by other devices and no file or printer sharing.) I changed this to Private and straight away it worked like a charm. Sorry about this reply being more of an essay than a quick-reply and hope this helps you and other people to overcome any difficulties with regards to installing P.T.

      • GypsyGoos3 says:

        Thank you! Had the same issue until I read your post – mine was also set to “public”, switched to “Private” and after that I could download P.T. 🙂

  12. Adam "SirOCelot" says:

    For those of you whom are like me and simply downloaded this aforementioned and cannot connect to the internet, please download the Squid Proxy Cache from its official website then run the exe you got from this post; this is how I got it to work.

    tl;dr download official Squid then run the exe you got from here to install over top of original Squid. Works like a charm!

    • MrFwibbles says:

      Still doesn’t work for me. I’ve uninstalled/reinstalled Squid several times, disabled my computer’s firewall, disabled my router’s firewall, restarted my PC, restarted my PS4, downloaded Squid from the official site and overwritten it with the exe from this post… NOTHING works. Fails at “Internet Connection” every single time. Windows 10.

      • Drew says:

        Are BOTH the pc and PS4 connected with WiFi, or BOTH hardwired to the router? It will fail if one device is on WiFi and the other is hardwired.

  13. Kat says:

    Works as of today

  14. Adam says:

    I sold my PS4 over a year ago. During that time, I managed to lose my HDD backup. I bought a PS4 Pro yesterday, and this is still working! Thanks to everyone involved in making this possible

  15. abthesp says:

    I don’t have a LAN/WiFi option just one or the other.


  16. Coppertank says:

    Still works as of today.

  17. Jon says:


  18. Ben says:

    Yup works like a charm still, wired PS4 and PC

  19. Rodolfo C says:

    how to uninstall the Suwi programs?

  20. Daniel says:

    Still Works.

  21. Matheus Fausto says:

    Apparently after I did try the stuff above, my PS4 stopped connecting to my wi-fi network. I should’ve noted on a piece of paper the PORT number that was before I changed it to 808, but I didn’t. That was really stupid, I know, but please, can someone help out with this? That would be great, guys. Thanks in advance.

  22. andreas48 says:

    It still works

  23. andreas48 says:

  24. Magpye says:

    • andreas48 says:

      I Run Suwi in the laptop . I see the the Check IP and i see the IP adress of laptop then i go to PS4 and put the laptop IP kai the gate 808 but those two do not connect. what am i doing wrong ?

  25. Matt says:

    Make sure you use the ipv4 address not the standard ip address. I had the same problem as most here until I found out I was putting in my wrong ip address

  26. andreas48 says:


  27. andreas48 says:

    he eventually had a problem pc.
    all together P.T)

  28. cccc says:

    can I use it for Japanese PSN account?

  29. Malakas says:

    IT’S ALIVE!!!!!! The download meter, ITS ALIVE! At first it didn’t work and thought it had something to do with my PS4 Pro being on LAN and using a laptop on the WiFi as the proxy. I guess I was right, switched the connection on the PS4 Pro to WiFi and now it’s downloading! Slowly but it’s working! MARCH 2018!

  30. Caddy says:

    Only a few days later, but yes it still works

  31. Scott says:

    Still works in April 2018 🙂

  32. Ty says:

    Still works, June 12 2018

  33. Antistar says:

    Hi, can this work if I download the .exe file and run it from a Windows OS on a MacBook Pro using dualboot? Or do I need to use a “regular” computer set to Windows by default?

    Thanks in advance!

  34. toad says:

    […] How to redownload P.T. Silent Hills – Wololo.net If you have a US PT license, you may be able to download PT using this tool – Reddit – NeoGAF or… Originally Posted by OmegaDL50 The topic has came up several times in the past and every single time it seems I'm sharing the same information over and over. Let's go about this in a fashion I can copy and paste to reuse in the future for the convenience to help others. What is Required – 1 USB Flash Drive formatted in FAT32 or exFAT that is large enough to back up what you need. A major step to save time. Delete any Disc based installs or games you can easily or reinstall or download quickly such as small PSN games. Anything you are willing to redownload can be deleted as this will save you a considerable amount of time in the backup and restoration process. From the PS4 main menu. Go to Settings > Go to System > Go to Backup and Restore. The Console will ask you to Sync your Trophy Data, Do this if you care about Trophies because anything that isn't Synced to PSN that is stored locally not uploaded will be lost in this process. You are given a list of several things with checkbox, Any box that is checked is marked for backup. This includes game saves, applications (the important thing you want to keep P.T. for), and even Screenshots and other less important things you can backup as well. Depending on how much you back up this process can be relatively short like an 30 minutes to an hour (Backing up a few games), Or it can be a tediously long all day affair (Backing up everything on your HDD) which can take 10+ hours for a full back and restoration. So remember my time saving advice. The next thing is IMPORTANT If you are selling an old PS4 and transferring your data to a brand new console, Make certain to DEACTIVATE YOUR OLD PS4, so your Licenses are freed and aren't tied to the new owner you sold your console to. You can do this from Sony Account management website too. After everything is backed up and you have your new PS4 Pro or other New PS4 console setup. Insert your USB flash drive with backed up stuff. Go into the Settings > System > Backup and Restore but this time Restore everything from the USB storage device. Your system will go into sequence of restarting itself and transferring data with a progress bar. After this is done you will have all of your stuff restored. The Console may even ask you to sign into PSN as well and Activate it. Have Fun! […]

    […]  The game that never was, while we never got a full release, P.T. is still the standard of which the new generation of horror games are tested. Being stuck in creepy house is getting overdone now because of P.T. Unfortunately the teaser’s been discontinued and you can’t redownload it from the Playstation Store if you’ve deleted it off your hard drive. So if you have it, remember; DON’T DELETE IT, but if you did, you aren’t totally out of luck. There is still a way to get it back if look in the right places. […]
