Do a search of "tethering the iphone 3.1 at&t" and you get 102,000 hits and the first 10 are worth nothing. Why? Because they only tell you that Apple did break the tethering over USB/bluetooth for the iPhone 3GS version 3.1.2... so what am I writing about then? I am writing about "Enable Tethering for the Iphone 3GS" from SiNful iPhone Repo, one of lots of applications in Cydia (yes my iphone is jailbroken, but it is my hardware). Now, my iPhone gives me lots of download speed. I was controlling my home server over logmein, over the iPhone. So, forget Google and choose Cydia. ;)

Tethering over USB with my iphone

Wmware player rocks!

Do I understand it? Nope but works, so what do I care.

I don’t know if I ever talked about HFS. HFS is an http file server,
open source. Coupled with stunnel it is a very robust server. But the
server wouldn’t let me user port 483 for secure connections. Say hello
to vmplayer. I did install win7 rc7100 in an empty image, install
stunnel and HFS and because they are in the same network, I can use
shared folders. I cannot do that with freeNAS.

So, what is the address of the https server? Knowledge comes in a need
to know basis ;)

So, what is the benefit of port 483 over 80? Encryption. The fact that
I want to share a couple of files with friends and family can make me
look like an uploader to the RIAA. Another benefit is that Eulalia
doesn’t need to carry a thumbdrive anymore because she can upload and
download from her special place in the 1TB hdd at any given time.

So look for HFS on the web. I am donating today.
