I should probably stop posting about the iPhone, but hey, what can I say

  • this little device has captured my heart.

To get GPRS/EDGE working with Meteor and your iPhone is pretty simple, all we need is a proxy auto-config file:

function FindProxyForURL(url, host) {
 if (isInNet(myIpAddress(), "", "")) {
 return "PROXY";
 } else {
 return "DIRECT";

Save this as proxy.pac and pop this into /private/var/root. Next add the following key to private/var/root/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/preferences.plist:


And that should be it. I haven’t actually tested this yet, so if some kind soul would be good enough to that would be great. Any HTTP traffic should now get routed over Meteor’s proxy. Mail probably won’t work, I’ll try to fix this when I get my hands on a Meteor SIM.
