    When I am using my Netbook on a wifi away from home, I use SSH port forwarding and when I use Firefox, I am actually connected to port 3128 on my home box running OpenBSD. I also connect to my home IMAP server using OpenSSH port forwarding.

    I want to do something similar with the iPod and have installed iSSH from the iTunes Store, but it appears as though the browser in the iPod does not have the capability to use a proxy. Is there a solution to this?

    I would like to do this without resorting to jailbreaking the iPod.


    thanks

    What reason do you have not to jailbreak

    I just got my iPod Touch yesterday. I don't want to take a chance that I will turn it into a paperweight just yet.

    There is no chance that it will become a paperweight, unless you actually try...

    ask anyone else knowledgeable here, that's what they'll say...

    It's true...as long as you don't physically go in and alter an essential file jailbreaking is safe. Sorry OP I don't know how to answer your question...
