    no, and I am trying really hard. explain the new OpenSSH install procedure.
    what I have are 1 term with windows cmd logged on as root. 1 term window within bitwise as newuser, and a ssh window that looks like an ftp with two window panes local and remote... very frustrating for a beginner like me to manage trying to edit files. I been at this for several days now trying to edit the simplist things. eeh.
    Please shed some lite. In English Please lol.

    Sorry, but it's simply not time-efficient for me to assist you with basic Linux usage. There are plenty of resources on the internet and other people on this forum who can assist with that.

    The OpenSSH homepage link in Preware has full details.

    I did it. my-pre.kicks-***.net:**** is online from SPRNT !
    RWHITBY, your a genius ! Thank you for the tough love.

    Useing the webosinstall I am able to put to and from phone as root.
    Using mynewuser, I am able to browse the phone to see what goes and what is where.
    I modded the appropreit files and got my host name to resolve to my phone's server on a different port from 80 and it seems to dynamically update the ip to dyndns.org.

    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).

    If you sign up for a buisness account you can get a static IP address

    When I checked the lighttpd.conf file, it was set back to port 80.
    I modified it back to what I had that worked.
    I still get this:
    root@palm-webos-device: start mobi.optware.lighttpd
    (00682/432076416) mobi.optware.lighttpd (start) waiting
    (00682/432930908) mobi.optware.lighttpd (start) starting
    (00682/434121093) mobi.optware.lighttpd (start) pre-start, process 2984
    (00682/528847656) mobi.optware.lighttpd (start) spawned, process 2994
    (00682/529366455) mobi.optware.lighttpd (start) post-start, (main) process 2994
    (00682/529885253) mobi.optware.lighttpd (start) running, process 2994
    root@palm-webos-device: stop mobi.optware.lighttpd
    stop: (00790/559487304) Job not changed: mobi.optware.lighttpd
    root@palm-webos-device:

    Did I forget to modify somthing else or is lighty broken as of 1.4.1.1 ?

    Tweaka, I was having the same problem. I uninstalled it, the installed it from the command line using ipkg-opt. I'm sure it's not the recommended solution but I was able to get it running again.

    I will give that a try...

    If you're already root, why are you trying to run sudo?

    I just installed Lighttpd on a freshly doctored device using Preware.

    I see
    Code:
    /opt/sbin/lighttpd -D -f /opt/etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf
    running.

    I can access the /media/internal/www directory via wifi and the lighttpd web server running on the device from a laptop on the same lan segment.

    I can access the /media/internal/www directory as BlackBerry Forums at CrackBerry.com using the built-in browser on the device.

    1) Install Preware

    2) Run Preware

    3) Install Lighty Web Server

    4) Put files you want to show in the /media/internal/www directory (the 'www' directory when mounted via USB)

    I have a question...is this the same as the Iphone Air Sharing app?

    Apps Avatron Software

    Just to note, I haven't installed lightpd server yet on my pre. And I have no experience with that air sharing app. I am just looking for a way to copy files to and from my pre and computers via wifi. Much like how it was when I had windows mobile and Resco file explorer. Now that would be awesome... To be able to browse, copy, open, edit, delete, files on a network share PC on my pre using a folder browser.

    anyways, is this lightpd an actual app with an icon?

    Another thing is, I just upgraded my wifi card on my laptop to a Intel N-6300 card. It has a feature to turn it into a PAN network called Intel My WiFi to allow wifi devices to share files to that PC.

    I tried it, and the Pre connects to it. But I wasn't able to see it on the network. On their website they demoed it with a wifi camera. It took a picture, and a second later on the laptop it opened up a folder with that photo.

    would that be possible with the Pre?

    thanks

    Resco sounds more like remote desktop then sever to me.
    Lighty server is not for the faint at heart. turns out, one has to know what one is doing with linux in order to use it effectivly. Sure you can follow the directions given, but beyond that, you may be on your own with regards to linux.
    Theres the whole root access thing from a windows pc, I still havent mastered yet.
    I imaging if my pc was linux based it would be easier, but I have had my limited successes.
    Unfortunately, lighty broke on my phone after the latest upgrade, but the guys tell me its not them, its me. So I been full eraseing and reinstalling webos this week to attempt another shot at running smoothly again. I had got Bitvise tunnelier to work as a unpriveldged user to browse the phone, and then used the webosinstaller's command line to make any changes to the permissions and or have administrator ROOT permissions.
    But when I tried somthing else called PUTTY I broke Bitvise because of a keygen thing. Maybe this is why linux has always said to be more secure then windows.
    The good news is I found out through palm.com/chat that my last webos reinstall did NOT restore all my original contacts... This one did. All my old friends are back.
    This might explain the buggy ness my phone has had.

    Good luck trying this one out, PM me if you want to. I am considering the HTC in September and will miss my little pre webos as it runs lighty.
