Connecting your home-router to an iPhone or iPod Touch
Turning the Iphone into a Wireless Router from John Chow on Vimeo.
Transform your iPhone into a wireless router, allowing you to connect your wifi deprived laptop to the internet anywhere phone service is available. It’s also perfect when you’re browsing the web but the small screen is too cramped. Now you can easily switch over to your laptop for a larger viewing window.Apples iPhone and iPod Touch are not only elegantly designed smart devices but they are also very capable Unix servers. You can run web services, terminal services and file sharing as well, and connect to these servers from any computer. The problem is that most network providers prevent connectivity for these features using their GPRS or any other data transfer connection. If you’ve got any tech support for your iphone hacking and your assistant needs to ssh into your phone, you’ll need to provide a way for them to get through the firewall to do so. A pretty neat way on how to do this has been posted here for you to read.
