    By the way, this would seem to foster the conclusion above that getting the wireless into AP mode may be the problem—NullRiver doesn't have it do that.
    NAT is vastly different than a simple SOCKS proxy. NAT involves changing source and destination addresses in the TCP/IP headers, this is low-level packet manipulation that is only allowed in the kernel. SOCKS, on the other hand, is a simple TCP proxy. You connect to it, tell it to connect somewhere, and it relays the data to and fro.

    As far as ad-hoc goes on the iPhone, I thought you could join an ad-hoc network that was created by another PC just fine on the iPhone? I've never tried it, am I wrong?

    Yes that works. It's also how Socks is usually done.

    Installing Cydia programs on a phone that has no internet connection: read this.

    Editing binary .plist, .strings, .nib and .xib files:
    * on your computer: Windows tool / conversion website.
    * on your iPhone: convert those files in a terminal with plutil (installed with Erica Utilities) or edit them with iFile (Cydia links).

    You can join ad-hoc networks, but can you initiate them (as a wireless router would)?

    Does anyone know if NAT could be implemented with a kernel extension? I don't even know if these are supported.

    Unfortunately, no. That is just a simple proxy. It's a process that's been described earlier in this thread. What is being talked about is the possibility of a NAT (Network Address Translation) server. Which is honest to goodness routing. It would allow your laptop to access any network attached application without special proxy settings. Without setting up a static proxy to redirect traffic to some other static address. It would truly and fully allow your laptop to use your phone's network connection. Which is awesome and there's nothing currently like this available. At least not anything that anyone wants to talk about.

    Personally, I'm excited to see people working on trying to port a NAT server over to the Darwin kernel. Even if it's not possible, it would be nice to know the iPhone's limits.

    Has this been abandoned, or has there been any further progress on a NAT routing daemon somewhere else?

    That might be a different thing, probably a socks relay like all the others. It doesn't seem to make the phone into a real router with NAT:
    To use - simply set up an AdHoc network on your Mac or PC (on Mac, just go to the WiFi meter in your status bar and hit "Create Network"). Then join it on the iPhone, and launch PdaNet on the iPhone!

    pdanet does exactly what we want it to. It's full tethering. Not proxying. I just got it so I'm not 100% sure how it works. But it does work. I assume it's just doing normal nat routing. It works as a dhcp server as well. So you really don't have to worry about much in the way of configurations.
