A Quick Update on Configuring proxy server settings for edge on your Iphone [OBSOLETE]
Please Note: This is an old post, now you can configure airtel live automatically by adding my source www.kansara.in/installer.xml to your installer sources, for more info go here [Update: 31/03/2008]
This is in reference to my earlier post regarding configuring 'Airtel Live on your Iphone'. I would just like to inform people that this is a universal solution, you just have to put in your proxy server and port address in the proxy.pac file. Even if you are in a network in Australia or Singapore or Hong Kong or any place that requires you to set up a proxy server to configure edge on your phone, this solution should work for you.
One more tip - All those who are not interested in going through the tedious method of installing OpenSSh on the iphone and then installing WinSCP on their windows pc to access the iphone's file system, can now install Samba File server from the BigBoss repository, "BigBoss's Apps and things". Just add this source in your installer, http://sleepers.net/~iphone/repo.xml . For instruction on how to configure your iphone and computer to access the iphone's file system with the samba server goto this page http://signalblue.com/iphone/
Note: This Solution requires wifi on your comp and will also require you to setup an ad-hoc(peer-to-peer) connection between your iphone and your comp.
After you to set up the samba server, place the proxy.pac file at this location: \\192.168.1.200\Root\var\root and the preferences.plist file to this location: \\192.168.1.200\Root\var\root\Library\Preferences\SystemConfiguration. Don't forget to backup your original preferences.plist file.
This should also get your Edge network to work on the Iphone.
Take Care All
P.S. If you need the proxy.pac file and the preferences.plist file just leave me a comment and your email address, i'd be more than happy to email it to you.
As soon as you get the files, just edit the proxy.pac file as per your requirement by following the instructions in this post and paste the preferences.plist file to the specified location, no need to edit it as I'll send you the edited file, :)
