    Yes use putty. I think you can use telnet too but I have no experience with telnet and the pre.

    Putty is a ssh client. You can use it to log into the phones ssh server. A ssh server/client system is a system that lets you log into a remote machine and execute commands on that machine as if you was sitting at that computer.

    vi is a text editor, an advanced one at that.

    i believe someone else asked this in this very thread somewhere.
    heres a good vi command reference

    Where are you entering the hostnamei? Why are you trying to input test?

    I am guessing you are entering the hostname for the address? If you do not have a local dns or edited your hosts file you will not be able to use a hostname to connect, use the ip instead. You can set this in the wifi settings on the pre. Just make sure it matches the network your pc is on. ex. 192.168.0.*

    I can't get this to work for nothing... All I would like to do is simply remove that darn emergency dial option... I can get in Putty fine, but the editor part is another story... I went through all the steps up until the Quilt install, but checking the Optware-bootstrap log yeilds nothing at all... Should I be plugged in the device (USB) /w USB being choose as the connection option. I can't firgure this out. I've called 911 by mistake 3 times.

    Also, where does the "Emulator" come in to play?

    I looked today after the 1.2.0 update and the PmConnectionManager file was not updated in 1.2.0 so the patch I applied previously did not need to be re-applied.
    (This also means that the instructions in the first post of this thread should still work in 1.2.0.)

    Does that mean the current method of tethering won't work in 1.3.1?

    The new file is PmNetConfigManager, in the same place and the same edit works.

    Enabling usbnet and making that edit was all I needed to get tethering working over bluetooth. But for some reason I couldn't get an IP address over USB cable, so I had to set it manually. All good now.

    Well, since MyTether is crashing for me, I guess this is my best bet?

    What's "usbnet"?

    Somebody was telling me that one would need to replace the qualcomm driver in order to do the wifi tethering... but it looks like that's not the case??

    Thanks! I made the edit and all works fine now. One oddity I found was that I stopped PmNetConfigManager, edited it and restarted, but it wasn't working. I looked and /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward still contained 0. Everything looked right, so I rebooted. Voila, it then worked.

    I am having one of those days where I can't even get velcro to work right.

    I went to /usr/bin

    backed up PmConnectionManager and PmNetConfigManager

    Stopped both services one at a time and tried to edit each file.

    1) They're binary files and all I get is binary characters.

    2) I try to search for "forward" anyway and it's not found in either file.

    Can someone help me out?

    Use VI for editing not nano. :/forward will help search for it... its the third one hidden in @ is a 0 change it to a 1 also maybe upgrade to version 1.3.1 if this is the tethering method you will be using

    jack87 is correct, you need to use VI as nano cannot handle binaries like VI can. Also, if you do not want to reboot your phone you can type this command into your pre to enable tethering right away:

    echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

    voila, you should be able to get on right away.
