    Some/Most of this info will be repetition of what was said in other threads but I want to summarize all of it and add my own experience to the mix.
    All of us Tmo/Tzones users were faced with recent service limitation which essentially blocked most of the ports available to our devices (T600 in my case). Only couple of ports required by mail clients are available: 25, 110, 143, 993, 995. I had seen references to port 8080 but it is not available in my area. Also, I thought port 9201, WAP access port would be available, but it is not. If anybody know of any other open port please let me know!! , I have use for it.

    Using these ports, home linux machine and a few tricks makes it possible to use Internet browser, Instant Messenger (ICQ, Yahoo, MSN, Jabber, etc), limited shoutcast radio and telnet(SSH2) access

    1) Web:
    Web can be accessed through the proxy server setup to listen on one of the available ports. I set it up on port 143. Proxy in the T600 web browser must be enabled and pointed to the address of your home machine. There are a number of proxy servers available for linux machine. Squid, RabbIT2 and some others. I personally use RabbIT2 because it is optimized for low bandwidth link and along with basic proxy function can strip out adds, compress text and resize pictures to speed up processing. RabbIT2 is mature open source product. Setup was simple. I only spent some time searching for appropriate wrapper scripts to start this thing up at the boot time.

    2) Instant Messenger:
    I use chatopus client which is $14 to buy but can access any Jabber IM server on any port. On the linux box I setup basic jabber server version 1.4.3 ( open source) along with the legacy transports to access ICQ, MSN and Yahoo. Jabber 2.0 is the latest version but it would not compile on my linux box. Jabber server is configured on my machine to listen for incoming traffic on port 110 Since I donít use jabber network itself, jabber acts only as the entry point for the legacy transports. These transports were the hardest thing to setup in the entire hack. Documentation is lacking and setup files are somewhat complicated. Boot time startup wrappers were also pain in the *** to put together. MSN transport works but requires often patching because bastards at Microsoft keep changing protocols to limit the access to their networks. MSN transport also required number of additional packages to build and get up and running. ICQ transport was a bit easier to setup. ICQ transport doesn't have any MSN protocol problems.

    3) Shoutcast:
    I setup two instances of shoutcast server. They do not deliver any music themselves but act as relay for two radio stations of my choice. One server is listening to port 25 an another one sitting on 993. Since I mostly listen to NPR and music at 24kbs is not good, talk stations Detroit 101.9 WDET FM and NYC NPR suffices me. I connect pocketTunes to my home machine port 25 or 993 and corresponing NPR stream is relayed to my T600 device. The number of available port is the real limitation here. If ANY other port or ports were available I could setup additional instances of shoutcast server to relay other radio stations. Shoutcast server is not open source but freely available and truly a breeze to setup.

    4) Telnet(SSH)
    This is the real easy one. I just had to add one line to my firewall script to forward traffic from port 995 to 22 and voila, I can access my linux box and from there any telnet server I need. I am using iptables and gShield script. Very mature an easy to setup script. On treo I am using pTelnet.

    Although it is not necessary, but I am also using free dynamic name for my server from dyndns.org. Ip address from Comcast doesn't change very often but every 6 months or so it does. Using the name in place of the IP address comes in handy.

    Prior to all these experimentations I had redhat linux box running as the firewall/NAT for my home network. I only had to enable the services and setup my firewall to allow traffic from the subset of the Tmobile addresses used in my area by wireless devices. DONíT SETUP THE SERVICES OPEN TO THE WORLD. Your machine will be hacked into the porno/warez/spam delivery service in the blink.

    If you want to repeat what I did and require some assistance let me know.

    1) 216.155.165.50 port 8080 didnt work for you? its much quicker (thanks faludi)
    2) use Verichat 2.33 or newer..it works fine even with the ports being blocked

    How did you determine the TMO IP ranges?
  4. #4  
    just set it to allow .tmodns.net
    Ever wonder if those FreeIPOD / FreeMiniMac scam sites work? Well, I found out Have a look at the results:

    I didn't play with 216.155.165.50 port 8080 proxy. Based on our experience with Tmobile cutting Tzones services, I don't believe it will last. Also, my own proxy allows me to filter out adds, reduce size of pics and compress text and generally fine tune performance per my liking.

    I was just looking for open ports. Port 8080 is not open to the internet. It is probably just open for access to 216.155.165.50

    I use:66.94.0.0/16 range in my firewall, but thanks outz, .tmodns.net is better way

    I'm not very experienced with these kinds of port redirecting setups, but how about if you set up something like OpenVPN on your Linux box and then used Mergic or Movian on the Treo side to initiate an IP tunnel from your Treo to your Linux box?
    If you did that, wouldn't you only use up one port on the Treo side, but have all ports available to you (no more limitated number of shoutcast stations, etc). Let me know what you think.

    Excellent idea, thanks!!!! Somehow, I just didn't think about it! I never played with OpenVPN before, but I will certainly try it

    I am not really experienced in this stuff eigher. I kind of just learned as I went playing around. Created the problems for myself and then tried to solve them

    You are indeed an expert in setting up the Jabber server and its transport. The Jabber community will definitely appreciate if you could share more of your setup knowledge with other users.

    BTW, Chatopus 1.8 is released. It has some nice enhancements and bug fixes.

    Thanks.

    RE: shoutcast.

    Ok I've screwed around trying to set up a shoutcast relay w/ Windoze. I don't seem to have any luck. Can you provide a copy of your config file (with sensitive stuff eliminated of course) I can use for reference? I'm trying to set up on port 110 and when pockettunes attempts to connect to my shoutcast server, the log file complains about not having the correct password.

    Frankly, I think the Shoutcast docs around setting up relay suck....

    I sent you private message with my file. This config file might not be very intuitive but keep in mind this stuff is designed to be used by admins. Also, in comparison to other server setups, this one was not hard

    Haven't gotten the PM yet. I'm wondering if I'm not using the correct input on the pockettunes end.

    In pocket tunes deluxe:
    1) go to "action" menu
    2) select "open"
    3) In the drop down menu select "shoutcast".
    4) select "new"
    5) add server name in the format:
    http://your_server_ip: port

    have you tested out the openvpn idea? I'm thinking about getting the treo 650 and being able to do this would be a dream..
  14.    #14  
    I tried it. Doesn't work. OpenVPN requires VPN Palm client that supports SSL. Mergic and Movian VPN clients do not support SSL. Also, both of these clients do not allow the change of default ports, which is required for the hack to work

    Use ICECAST instead of the shoutcast. With icecast you can relay unlimited number of radio stations through the single port *AND* you can setup on-demand relay to prevent bandwidth waste when you don't listen to anything
