    Hi all

    Here a very easy solution for Mac OS X Leopard to use the iPhone as Modem for your Mac:

    http://www.iphonemodem.de/

    The application is multilingual english/german and universal binary. It will suport Netshare, ZSrelay, XSrelay and OpenSSH. For a secure connection i recomment OpenSSH. Its free for all and if you like it by us a Beer... we are Germans ;).

    Have a nice Week Ciao Marco from Berlin

    Proper Configuration of Software

    Caio Marco,

    This is multi-part question. I installed zsrelay from Cydia and have a little confusion.

    I restarted springboard and went to settings for iphonemodem and see the options. There were other web postings indicating that when I flip the Enable Proxy switch I should see an icon on the status bar and nothing shows.

    i also tried to set up the BossPrefs switch using start:/usr/sbin/zsrelay and stop: killall zsrelay, but I can't find any verification it this is correct and can't find the recommendation for the the entry for process: or icon:

    Is their a method for editing the BossPref service shortcut once it is created to verify that it was type correctly? I saw a few references to a plugin for zsrelay, but I found nothing. Possibly I am missing the source... thoughts?

    On the mac side, things appear OK, but I have not had a complete test yet with the uncertainity on the iPhone side.

    If you could create a short summary on these questions, I think it would help everyone.

    Thanks.

    I have netshare and I've tried iphonemodem. None of these are "true" tethering solutions. they set up a proxy server that enables web development. Want to use an FTP client? nope. Want to hit other ports? nope. Want to VPN? nope.

    I appreciate the effort, but I look forward to a true tethering solution from ATT/Apple. But this is better than nothing.

    Nice app but I think it only gives you web access, right? It's setting up a socks proxy. Adium did not work, nor did any other non-web services. Am I missing something here?
