    Default [Tethering] xsrelay - fix DNS issues

    A little backstory:

    Before getting my iPhone I used my K800i for dial-up connections with my macbook.
    Shortly after switching I started tethering between my iPhone and my macbook and got really frustrated about the fact that some pages just won't load before I opened them in mobilesafari.


    Last week I came acros this excellent blog post by Jay Freeman. He has tracked down the DNS issue on his iPhone and even suggested a workaround for new apps.

    I integrated his fix into version 0.4.6 of srelay and packaged the new binary as xsrelay-0.4.6.1.
    It is available from my private apptapp repo at http://bitspinn.org/apptapp/.

    Update
    I just uploaded a BossPrefs plugin which enables one to easily start and stop xsrelay
    without the need to make a ssh connection.
    The package is available from the above repository and should appear under 'Utilities'.

    Feel free to post your comments and suggestions in this thread.

    Update - again
    Is no-one willing to give me a little feedback?
    I know that at least ten people installed XSRelay - so _please_ give me a little hint if it works for you!
    My further maintainance and enhancements really depend on your feedback.

    What DoYou think about a little App called "iTether":

    Klick on it start the xsrelay and shows the Networks.... select the network makes the connection and hold the Wlan connection like in MobileChat. The main Display shows the Current ingoing and the outgoing IP. Close the applikation kills xsrelay.

    Thumbs up iTether

    Sounds interesting,
    this would be my first native GUI app for the iPhone.
    But since it's definitely going to be some work I'd like to determine if there is really a need for this. (Hence the poll)

    In any case I'm gonna dig out my Jiggy install and toy a little around.

    Cheers,

    Shirk.

    I've played around with a number of tethering options and all have been unreliable so far. (I'd occasionally get through if I viewed the site on iPhone first).

    I've installed xsrelay and BossPrefs plugin, and they work well.
    [Personally I don't need a special GUI - BossPrefs plugin in fine.]

    Many thanks.

    What we could use along with the pro is actually a guide for each system and browser. How do i use it with internet explorer and vista?

    Ok Guys here the Solution for MAil.app

    1. install openSSH on iPhone

    2. Create a new SMTP-Server in the mail prefs with Server-Adress "localhost" and Port 1081

    3. Change the settings of Your Pop3 Servers to Adress "localhost" and Port 1082 or 1083 or 1084 and so on ;-)

    4. Connect Your iPhone in Tether Mode

    5. Start SSH Server on iPhone

    6. Open Terminal

    7. For SMTP-Server:

    sudo ssh -L 127.0.0.1:1081:213.165.64.20:25 root@192.168.11.1

    With 213.165.64.20 As the Adress of Your SMTP-Server Provider. 192.168.11.1 IP-Adress of Your iPhone. 1081 Given Port in MailPrefs for the SMTP-Server

    8. For every POP3 Server a new Terminal with:

    sudo ssh -L 127.0.0.1:1082:213.165.64.22:110 root@192.168.11.1

    With 213.165.64.22 IP-Adress of Your POP3 Server Provider and 1082 the given Port in the MailPrefs for the POP3 Server

    When Promt for Password "alpine" is it in the SSH-Server

    I will try to write a script to automate this all and viaversa...

    Ciao Marco

    Default Good news

    As far as XSRelay is concerned - I contacted the original srelay's author and got his permission to further develop and release my XSRelay under the GPL license.

    This should make it possible to integrate new features such as the POP3 tunneling described by @marcoxyz. At least if you still need it..
    I can imagine something like a set of rules telling XSRelay to tunnel connections on iPhone port X to some host port Y.

    Btw. marcoxyz: Good job - sounds like a lot of work getting to this setup?

    @all: Since I'm now allowed to - I'm open for enhancements / feature requests to be integraded into XSRelay. You can post them here or send me a PM including the feature and a short explanation why it should be included.

    There is also a page on bitspinn.org displaying the current status and roadmap for XSRelay. Just take a look at it here.

    Cheers,

    @Shirk... Thank You.. 2 Hours ;-) with search...

    What i Think is the best would be to have 2 Applikations. One on the Mac and one on the iPhone:

    The Mac Applikation:

    Sitting in the Status Bar next to the Airport icon

    Prefs:

    - Set the IP for the local WiFi Network
    - Set the name for the local Network
    - Set the IP from the iPhone (for SOCKS Proxy)
    - Set the SSH password
    - Checkbox for "enable Mail" (if it is not implementet by SRelay)

    klick on the icon... Menu pops up with "connect to iPhone"... Icon changes for waiting like the Internet Connection Icon

    It creates the local WiFi... Writes the Socks Proxy and enable it.. waiting for iPhone by pinging his iP-Adress...

    Is the Connection established it changes the icon Again (with a little ping ;-) )... And if the checkbox "enable Mail" is on it edits the "com.apple.mail.plist" with the required settings for Mail with backup of the old settings (easy)... And uses the "ssh -L" Command to port forwarding the required IP_Adresses (the problem here ist that the Program must use the iP-Adresses for Servers while the Adress resolution don't works)... Also the Program needs to check the SSH connections and reestablished them if needed...

    The iPhone Applikation:

    Prefs:

    - Set the name for the local Network
    - Set the IP for the local WiFi Network
    - Set the SSH password

    Start the Applikation Displays a nice annimation while waiting for the Mac/Pc by pinging... Starts the srelay and the ssh-server... Play's a Sound while connection is established...

    Is the connection established it sets the "Standby" of "never" and dimms or power off the Display for Powersaving...

    Exit kills all server and revert all setting's...

    Thats it....

    Ciao Marco
