    you can log onto winscp using two different wireless networks. For instance, lets say i'm at a friends house or at school. Can I use vnsea on my phone to access my computer and the program winscp to send new applications or some file to my phone wireless? Thx.

    I use one wireless pen and the connection configured as ad-hoc. Simple as that, don't need a router. I can connect to iphone with WinSCP with no problems at all.

    read please. He is asking if he needs to be connected to a wireless network, and he does. An ad-hoc connection through a wireless pen, is still a wireless connection

    The most probable answer is no.

    The complete answer is it depends. For winscp from your home computer to see your iPhone, there must a network connection between your home computer and the iPhone. That means your iPhone must have a public, routable IP address. Behind a standard NAT (home) router, you are not publicly accessible unless your IP address is setup as the DMZ and you use WinSCP to connection to the router's IP address assigned by the ISP (research Dynamic DNS for some of the issues).

    At school it is also extremely unlikely that you have a publicly routable IP address that allows you to run a server process accessible from the Internet for similar reasons. If you really know your networking, you can find out, but basically IP addresses that are like 10.x.x.x, 192.168.x.x, 172.16.x.x - 172.31.x.x are not publicly routable.

    Of course, if you really knew your networking, you already knew all this

    I read it well. I was answering to his second question:

    You don't need necessarily a router, a wireless pen in ad-hoc mode will do the trick. It's a much cheaper solution.
