    Everytime I have to start Netshare, I have to manually assign a static IP address to the TCP/IP. Is there a way around this so I could use static IP when connected to the iphone and non static/dhcp when connected to different networks (office/home)

    very curious

    No way around the nature of the beast. Now if only Firefox 3 would work.

    I believe there is a simpler way, now if only that works. Setup a dhcp server on your pc always running so if the client requests it then the pc will assign the IP. Now I can't get that theory to work !:mad:

    it works, it seems like a little bit of a hassle i don't see the benefit of it

    Alternatively you could just leave it to dhcp and wait for the 169.x.x.x internal routed IP and then change the proxifier everytime. I feel thats easier but i've seen some laptops disconnect and keep looking for dhcp every once a while which is quiet annoying.

    There has to be an easier way? btw. I couldn't get VPN to start using this connection. Everything else works. Tested with:

    Audio Streaming: mms:// protocol
    Slingbox 1200 kbps constant
    Internet Explorer

    If your jailbroken, why are you still using that crummy app? 10 second secure connection everytime after initial setup.
