    If you don't want to pay the $20/mth for the unlimited internet plan, you can setup proxy settings in either Blazer or Web Pro. You have to either find a transparent proxy that runs on port 110 or 25, or just setup your own port redirect to an existing port 80 proxy.

    Currently I'm running 'bounce -p 110 66.150.173.200 80' on a UNIX server, and I'm able to browse the web fine from the phone. Sorry not giving this out to the public, you're on your own on this one.

    FYI, Verichat still works also. The only real freature that I miss is Directory Assistant.

    thx a lot for the tip !
    I didn't find this "bounce" utility on my fedora linux machine so I used squid which is there.
    I only needed to change the http_port to 110 and "http_access allow" to "all" in the squid.conf file (which sounds a bit unsafe btw ...) before starting squid ...

    As reck said you just need to have access to a proxy that runs on port 110 or 25 or just setup your own port redirect to an existing port 80 proxy.

    Do you have a computer with an allways-on direct connection to the internet ?

    I've looked everywhere for a port 110 or port 25 web proxy..but I really cant find any. You are really stuck either getting access to a port redirector or setting up a squid cache on your own box. Problem being, cable modems block ports 25 and 110 inbound :-/

    What are the dangers of using one of the free proxy services? I found a whole list of them here http://www.proxy4free.com/page1.html and many of them offer ports other than 80.

    they have to be on port 25, 110, or 143. i dont believe they allow any other ports..but i can give it a try

    THANKS Reck!!!!

    didn't even think off trying that mail port....i was still stuck thinking about what i wanted to do 110 or 25...

    It works now....

    I would NEVER use a free proxy service for anything that involves passwords. There is nothing keeping the operators of those free proxy sites from filtering/phishing for passwords. The same could be said for account numbers etc. etc. etc...

    BEWARE!!!

    Not to be a pain, but can someone explain step-by-step what they are doing to get access? I think a lot of us are lost here!

    since my home pc is always on i set up a proxy on port 143 and direct my treo there...

    I would also appreciate more detailed info on this. Are those of you setting up home proxies using Linux only? Are there comparable ways to do this under Win XP? A quick Google turned up a product called "EasyProxy" which sounds similar.

    Yes, I'm also interested in the solutions people are mentioning here. Can you guys give a bit more detailed info of how you are enabling a proxy at home.

    What OS you are using?
    What software you are using?
    What router you are using?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    win 2000
    ther are a bunch of proxy programs
    wingate even works
    i think right now i have a demo of winproxy running on it right now...
    the proxy has to be set to your home ip on the treo and don't disconnect your dsl/cable modem..well mine is fed through a router that keeps the connection active....

    Sorry guys, but can your be really detailed with the instructions? I'm new to this but I think I have all I need to do it; just need to know how. I have an always on internet connection and can probably find my home IP address but how do I set it up on my Treo?

    And I would also be *very* careful about running an open proxy on your home machine. If you don't already know what the risks are you shouldn't be doing it...might end up being charged with being an anonymous kiddie porn distributor or spammer. Those who make a living securing network connections are generally unwilling to do this if that tells you anything.

    If some can give us newbies some step by step info, or direct us to a program, that would be great, i would donate some $, due to the fact that i dont want to pay t-mo for slow internet.

    once you have setup your proxy on port 110 (for example) on your home pc go to your treo blazer preferences, then "advanced", then "set proxy" and enter your home ip address and port 110.
