    Are you sure EDGE is turning back on?

    Right now it's deceiving because the EDGE logo still remains though you are not connected (check the IP field in NetServices to see if it changes from "searching" if both WiFi & EDGE are off). The EDGE logo issue will be resolved in next update. In addition, turn off WiFi & EDGE and try and navigate to a website. If NetServices is working correctly a notification telling you that the phone is not connected to the EDGE network should appear.

    Please tell me either way if this works for you.

    Sorry I thought it was the services thread, but hey thanks for the answer. I guess now I will try out your applications just for that feature. Do I need to uninstall the other services app before installing yours? Thanks alot.

    Hi Greg,

    Tinyproxy does not appear on the services list, i've cross check the plist name per your suggestion and even after remove-reinstall it still doesn't change the state.

    Another thing, I understand tinyproxy + socks can produce tethering for the edge to be used on a mac, does your version of the installation (for the two) can be used for that? any tips on how to make it work?

    Thanks.

    NetServices is very similar to Services. They are both based on original code by Chris Hoffman. NetServices extends the capabilities of Services by adding control switches for a large variety of network services now available for the iPhone. The switches only appear if you have these services installed, so if you don't - NetServices will look exactly like Services. See the first post in this thread for a list of network services included.
    http://modmyi.com/forums/showthread.php?t=17699

    BTW - you do not need to uninstall Services to install NetServices but they do exactly the same things in terms of WiFi, EDGE, Bluetooth so having both is redundant.

    Kapt -

    Did you install Tinyproxy from the CopyCoders repository or a different source? The one listed at CopyCoders should work correctly.

    In terms of tethering your phone - I've never done it but here's a link:

    I don't think AFP will work with Vista at all. It's a Macintosh sharing protocol. In order to see my PC on my Mac I use Samba. While this control is built into NetServices I have never installed the service myself. It's a bit of a complicated installation which is why it is not yet available on CopyCoders as a one-click install.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Please note that CopyCoders does not administer any of the network services available at the repository. They are simply versions that install Launch Daemons NetServices knows to look for. Alternative installations of these services often yield inconsistent result. Please install services from CopyCoders whenever possible.

    Thanks,

    Greg

    Same here, but then on 1.1.2

    I've used Services.app before, exactly the same behaviour: turn EDGE OFF, exit Services.app/NetServices.app ... and EDGE is still active! When I start Services.app/NetServices.app again then EDGE is showed as ON automagically.

    Back to iToggle for me... this allows me to REALLY turn EDGE off.

    I'm sorry you're having this experience. Are you SURE edge is becoming re-enabled. Both Services & NetServices have an issue where the EDGE logo remains even when the service is off. Please check both the IP field and Safari directly to see whether service has truly been renewed. (logo fix in next update).

    Does NetServices show EDGE to be back on every time you re-open the app? If you still have it installed, turn it off a second time and see if the button sticks this time. Are you running both iToggle & NetServices at the same time? While they do not conflict directly, the possibility arises to have the same service set differently in each program.

    Please let me know if these issues are still occurring.


    Thanks,
    Greg

    Greg,

    I think I tried all possible sequential manners to turn off edge. But somehow it does not seem sticky with both Services.app/NetServices.app. Whenever I start (Net)Services the EDGE swtich is turned ON, even if I switched if OFF before...

    With iToggle I was able to turn of edge completely, however now I upgraded to iToggle 1.0.5 (which omits the PHONE ON/OFF switch) my EDGE and Bluetooth switches are grayed out for some reason.

    I'm very sure that EDGE is not switched off by (Net)Services.app. I can still access the internet with WIFI disabled if I "think" that EDGE was switched off....

    Thanks,
    Stefan

    Stefan,

    Hmmmm....I am unable to recreate this so it's tough to solve.
    For me the EDGE logo remains, but all network access is disconnected and button stays put.

    Are you running 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 iPhone firmware?

    1.1.2 firmware.

    I also seem to have a very nasty EDGE/GPRS provider, as by keeping all the APN fields empty, or put dummy values in there, it STILL can connect! This is giving me massive phone-bills which I obviously don't really like.

    The IP-field in NetServices keeps on "Searching...." with wifi disabled and EDGE enabled/disabled.

    Ahhhhh...well that's the problem. NetServices uses a dummy apn to disable EDGE so the circuit is never really turned off, just never able to connect (which is why the logo remains). Since your provider doesn't care what's in the apn field - this method won't work for you.

    I'll work on some new methods of accomplishing this. If you find any way you are able to adjust your settings where you disable your EDGE given the apn limitations, please let me know so that I can incorporate it into NetServices.

    Thanks,

    Greg

    Well... iToggle 1.0.4 was able to really switch of my EDGE! If you figure out how they do it.... then it'll work for me!

    Itoggle works by entering a fake ip adres.

    This works great for me!

    Hey Greg, great you liked the idea and added Bonjour! Love it

    Btw, there is another afpd package which adds its own UI for enabling/disabling afp and bonjour seperately and also allows to define the Hostname to be used. The last thing would be also a great addition to Netservices, don't you think?

    Take a look (including source): http://www.eecs.berkeley.edu/~job/afpd/

    Andy,

    I agree that editing hostname would be very useful. - especially if you have multiple iPhones on the network.

    I've got a bunch of changes on my list for the next version of NetServices and this is one of them. There will be an update very soon with some fixes that won't incorporate this yet, but look for it for sure.

    Thanks for the idea. Keep 'em coming!

    Greg

    Just FYI, NetServices doesn't work if you've done something like this to expand your available space:
    http://www.tuaw.com/2007/10/29/iphon...our-iphone-or/

    I've tried it, and the app doesn't work when I've got it installed in /var/root/Applications/ with a symbolic link to /Widgets/

    From what Erica says, it's because the programmer used absolute paths in the code, rather than using NSBundle. Hopefully that helps.

    Default A suggestion (if not asked already)
    First I would like to say this is a great app, very useful. One thing that I think would be good is the ability to somehow get to the settings screen of the particular service you are enabling/disabling such that:

    Bluetooth -> I can turn it on and then get to the screen where I can select the device to use
    WiFi -> I can select which network to connect to

    and so on.

    Again, great tool and keep up the good work.
