    err.. It looks like your link is broken. The site was shut down in protest?? Go to http://www.daemon.de/

    anyway, I wasn't sure about the webdav thing. I saw those instructions yesterday, but was a bit confused. Any other documentation on this?

    I would like to read the howto if there is a copy elsewhere to see how you are doing it.

    I do a lot of lighttpd configuration at work for customer's web servers, but haven't been asked to do password protected directories before so I never learned to do it.

    Its pretty powerful. You could set up cgi too and run scripts from the pre if you wanted. Probably could use it to pull any kind of information you want from the OS.

    I took down my site for protest agains censorship law, yes.

    However, I updated the WIKI page about the installation process.

    Great!

    Thanks, that saved me countless hours figuring it out myself!

    I'm sorry. Please forgive my ignorance. But how does this squid proxy setup work with lighttpd? I was confused by the webdav thing, but now I'm really lost. Appreciate your help.

    I think it should be stated....that I was the one who edited the lighttpd tutorial on webos-internals and stated that it appeared that sprint has blocked http....

    ...I wanted someone else to confirm this and stated so.

    Just to shed a little more light on this.. I tried setting up lighttpd on different ports and was able to access via the LAN and WLAN but not ever over EVDO.

    The one thing I didn't mess with was iptables. I didn't think to configure and certainly don't know enough about iptables to configure it to allow access over EVDO [ppp0 adapter] to accomodate for the alternate http ports I was configuring.

    Someone who is more experienced with iptables should really confirm that sprint has disabled http by setting up iptables and lighttpd for port 8080 or something.... I'm just saying...

    It won't work over EVDO ever.

    If you take a look at the ip address your palm has assigned when online with EVDO, then you'll see something like this: 10.34.3.187 or 192.168.143.99.

    Those are RFC addresses and are not routable over the internet. This is the very same setup you have if you're using WLAN. The WLAN-Router does network address translation (NAT) for local clients and the router has the internet ip address. If you want to connect from the outside you'll have to configure port-mapping on your router (what you do to enable bittorrent for example).

    The very same applies for EVDO. Your provider runs some router which does the NAT. So, if you want to connect to your phone via the internet while online with EVDO, your provider would have to configure such a port-mapping for you.

    I don't think, any provider will do that.

    However, IF you get a routable ip address assigned by PPP, then it might be possible. But it would be a surprise to me, if some privider would do that. IP addresses are running out, so they cannot assign every handset it's own public ip (this is, what IPv6 wants to fix btw).

    It has been mentioned a few times to edit or mod files.

    I wanted to try my hand at getting this to work on evdo, I show a valid ip for my phone's wan.
    I also needed to mod the share folder, and then try to set up a ftp.
    I, I, ya.

    I found this http://palmpre-hacks.com/palm-pre-ha...on-a-palm-pre/

    I have to learn linux, SSH and how to use Vi. I run XP. Seems like linux users took to this phone like a seagull takes to my shoulder. (splat)

    Which way to the java script for dummies thread ?

    Hi,

    thanks for the great tool. The way I use it is as "off-line web reader".

    Meaning, on my PC I crawl the sites I want to read and save locally, then copy the files to Pre. Then I use the Pre's browser to point to localhost to read them.

    The idea is to save on the data charges, speed, availability.

    The only problem I have is unavailability, when in true off-line (e.g. airline mode).

    It seams that the Pre browser doesn't work if it doesn't have a valid connection (wifi or 3G in my case). So in airline mode, I can't open http :// localhost/

    anybody has a "patch"?

    thanks,
    pete

    forgive me riding the back of the wave here, but thats why I am hanging with you guys..
    EVDO evolution data optimized... I get it. But I am rusty with the whole what kind of ip address is this thing, I fell asleep during that part of the class.
    If 108-111-122-9.pools.spcsdns.net means its not public, then I came along way for nothing, what with dyndns and all. But I did find the webos site was more helpful then I first saw, with novaterm and bitwise. Oh and holding the left alt and typing 124 gets me the pipe character ||.


    is someone gonne write us a cool wireless analyzer like the one my friend's droid has soon !? (I know wrong thread)
    I wasted a perfectly good free host name my-pre.kicks-***.net from dyndns.org, true story. Well, I did learn that it is possible to ssh and transfer files wireless while near my router.

    DYNDNS.ORG.COM doesnt let you change port number.

    I can say that I am able to connect to the web server on both my Pre's over EVDO. In fact I use it for GPS tracking. I'm on Sprint in the States, maybe it's different in other areas.

    Even though I havent got to the part where I can edit or mod files on the pre yet due to permissions and two logins ie root and mynewuser,ROOT not being able to use ssh and or me not being able to use terminal weel enough to edit /mod files,


    I did manage to get this in response to a question directed at dyndns about switching ports from 80 to somthing else when hosing my new name for my pre...

    Since DNS doesn't have anything to do with ports you can't set your host name to a specific port. You need to manually set port 80 everytime you enter your URL.

    I said thank you to him/her for supporting ipupdate however.

    Meantime, pre-tell, did you have to switch from port 80, or did everything you did fall into place right out of the box ?

    cant I give root access level permissions to mynewuser through terminal with root@webdevice and still use an SSH client with mynewuser but with root access ?, I dont understand why they dont let root use them. Does root mean local admin access ?
    Is No such remote root admin access available ?
    Even if the device is plugged into my pc by wire, I cant login as root. ?

    PM me, so I stop whinning in this otherwise great thread.

    I'm using port 9999 as I read port 80 was blocked (although I never tried it).

    Looks nice. I was thinking that we should begin a simple site that can be installed on the phone to provide download and upload access to files, and later on work on sending and reading SMS, etc. A la Moto Devour.

    when I did this as root from a windows cmd prompt,
    members.dydns.org says that your IP address has not changed since the last update.

    Yet another reason why the new OpenSSH install procedure uses the root account and ssh keys.

    Are you running that as root?
