    A board member was asking me how to do this, so i thought i would make a more comprehensive how to post.

    1.) Install Google Desktop Search From http://desktop.google.com/

    2.) Install DNKA - remote desktop search tool from http://dnka.com/. This free software will expose your Google Desktop Search to the internet. Note by default, DNKA is set up to only allow searches from the server itself (not from the internet or from your Treo).

    3.) From the DNKA configuration screen, hosts tab (these are the ip addresses of the machines that will be able to search your files), either add the ip of your treo, or just add * for all ips.

    4.) From the Users tab, add a new user, assign a username and a password, click submit. In the extra search string section, type in anything you would like to be appended to any search by this user, for example filetype:mp3 would only allow mp3 searches by this user. For my user i added "classical masterpieces |filetype:mp3 |filetype:aac |filetype:wav |filetype:m4a |filetype:m4b |filetype:wma |filetype:mid |filetype:m3u". I also disabled directory browsing on the last page.

    That's it.

    Now when you hit your ip address from anywhere in the world, you can instantly search all your files.

    Some other sites that might help are:

    http://www.portforward.com/ in case you are using a router you will need to forward port 4664 to your pc.

    http://www.no-ip.com/ you can use this free tool to change your dynamic ip address in to a real domain, so that instead of typing http://68.20.211.24:4664, you can just type http://yourname.no-ip.com.

    TweakGDS http://desktop.google.com/plugins/i/tweakgds.html you can use this neat little tool to change even more of your google indexing settings.

    If you want an example of this, i have set up http://classical.servemp3.com:4664/ exposing just one public domain classical music folder only. Username Treo Central without the space, password the same. Sorry for limiting it to the public domain classical music, but last time i made a post about downloading TV shows for treo, my thread was reported for TOS violation and closed.

    Can you download the file?

    Isn't there a similar mp3 streaming service for Palm, like orb.com but I don't remember the web name.

    Why not just use Avvenu? It can do the same thing with less work. No port forwarding needed.

    There is no reason not to use Avvenu, but Avvenu is a service whereas DKNA is a tiny piece of freeware.

    Also Avvenu's "baseline service" is free, but they say on their website they are planning on turning thier service in to a pay service that has a subscription while maintaining this free 'baseline service" for users of Palm.

    Furthermore, Avvenue does not index your music collection for searching. They just expose the Google Desktop search as a part of their service. Hope that will be included with "baseline service".

    Even simplier solution is a program called wwwinamp, or a shoutcast radio server.

    Try to search for simple on folder web servers

    It astonish me all the programs claiming to give you access to you data. They are all nothing but web server "tried to their service"

    Could also just use ORB @ http://orb.com/

    Once installed you can share your music... and tv, photos, video. Yeah tv could fall under video, but you can also remotely tell it to record shows or watch live tv streaming if you happen to have a tv tunner card installed.

    What i have outlined does not have to do with streaming. There is no streaming. And there is no service. This is a piece of freeware that turns your Google desktop index in to a searchable internet media repository that can be accessed from anyywhere.

    Tools like shoutcast or wwwinamp are ways to stream or to create sort of your own internet radio station, and products like Avvenue and Orb are services. Many of them are free for today, but web services have operating expenses, i imagine they will be looking for revenue streams soon enough. Also, im not sure how Orb indexes your media collection, but there is no better indexing than google. I think i am going to take a look at orb along side my Google repository.

    Google desktop compromises your computer and doesn't work on Linux. Try again.

    Right, every version of Google Desktop is insecure, regardless or where the index is kept, whether or not the user chooses to choose the option to encrypt the index, which local or network drives are indexed, and what users and ip rangers are given or denied access.

    And what's linux, I never heard of it.
