    And you believe that requests from Safari or Firefox on a Mac/PC look the same as those coming from the mobile version of Safari or Apple authorized apps? OK cool.

    I use 3proxy and NetShare. It's really cool to connect your laptop via iPhone to the net.

    There are two problems:
    My phone doesn't change the Wlan connection to 3G/Edge to connect to the internet automaticaly - is there a common method to force the iPhone to change the network?

    DNS reasolving is pretty bad - a lot of pages won't load...!?
    Is it enought to just cache them first through a Lan connection?

    Default Tether iPhone through USB cable
    Just thought I would throw this out. I found it much better to tether the iPhone through the USB cable than to use WiFi. It is also much faster for transferring programs. Using WiFi and 3g together runs the battery down pretty fast on the phone so I found I had to connect the USB cable to keep the phone charged anyway. This way does not require the WiFi to be used at all, does not require 3proxy to be running on the iphone, and is much easier to set up. Just got it working a few minutes ago and am using it to send this message. A step by step procedure follows:


    1. Requires a jailbroke iPhone with Cydia installed (I am using 3g)

    2. Use Cydia to install SSH on the iPhone.

    3. Install "iPhone Tunnel Suite" on the PC http://www.makkiaweb.net

    4. Put the batch file attached in the same directory as "Putty" C:/program files/Iphone Tunnel Suite/Putty

    5. Run the "iPhone Tunnel Suite" program and click the "iPhone Tunnel" button only.

    6. Set Internet Explorer (or Web Browser of choice) to use a Socks only proxy at 127.0.0.1 port 8080.

    7. Run the "Safari" Web Browser on the iPhone. This is required so the iPhone will establish an internet connection.

    8. You might want to set the iPhone not to go to sleep also as the internet connection will drop when it does.

    9. Run the "IPhone.bat" file.

    I found the method above a much better way to tether than using WiFi and running a proxy server on the iPhone. I found the WinSCP (included with the tunnel suite) a much better way to transfer programs between the Iphone and the PC also.

    Enjoy,

    Jim K.

    AVG tells me there is a trojan horse when accessing iMakkie Hosting

    I followed the above instructions and when I run Putty (using the bat file) I get "network error: software caused connection abort"

    I have disables the wifi on the laptop and iphone (so it will use 3G). I don't have iTunes on the laptop (do I need it?). The iPhone is connected to the laptop via USB.

    Any ideas?

    Made some progress. I can now see the iPhone terminal when I run the *.bat file but IE7 still has no connection.

    I have set the socks proxy in IE7 (under internet options - connection - proxy settings - advanced) to 127.0.0.1:8080.

    I also found this link via this forum:
    http://alk2blog.blogspot.com/2008/08...-over-usb.html

    This is really a great way to tether the iPhone.

    any suggestions?
    does anyone have an answer to this....? how do you get AIM to work?

    none thus far... and i wouldn't got the 127.x.x.x route... like someone else posted there was a trojan... and if you know anything about networking you no that 127.0.0.1 is localhost... so i see a major security flaw with that... and for the person that was having trouble connecting with IE7 a couple thread above... if your trying to go the localhost route you probably have to disable the "bypass proxy for xxxx adresses" check box

    i don't know but doing it through your localhost ip isn't a good idea cuz even if you have a firewall your localhost ip has no security
    "Search" is your friend

    Dont make it so complicate use iPhoneModem zsrelay... make a ad-hoc on Windows or use the USB connect and put your iPhone IP in your Browser as Socks Proxy prort is 1080 thats all
