    *This is just a tutorial to make things clearer, all credit goes to the owner and creator, www.makkiaweb.net*


    "iPhone Tunnel Suite" is an amazing piece of software.
    I highly recommend it.


    Let's get started:

    *Make sure you have OpenSSH already installed and running on your jailbroken device*

    1) Install iPhone Tunnel Suite and run the software

    2) Click the "iPhone Tunnel" button

    3) Log into your device using your OpenSSH username and password

    4a) Now, in the program you're using to access the internet (Firefox, IE (bleh), and even bi******* clients (works fine in my Azureus)) set up the proxy to use "127.0.0.1" as the SOCKS Proxy (version 5) and "1080" as the port.

    4b) If you're in Firefox, type in "about:config" into the address bar, paste "network.proxy.socks_remote_dns" into the "Filter" box, and doubleclick on the entry in order to set it to "true" (if it is already set to true, you do not nee to do anything)

    7) Enjoy your internet connection, tunneled through your iPod/iPhone!

    Yeah, please, I'm a bit confused here. Will this also work for iPhones, whatever it does?

    It allows internet from your computer to be converted to a usable internet connection for your iPod.

    Edit: I think so at least...

    no. exactly the opposite of what it does. Makes your ipod a usb adapter.

    yesssss

    okay it allows you to use your ipod/iphone as a modem

    kinda pointless for the ipod. but in places without wifi for your laptop its nice

    Nope, other way around, you can use your ipod/iphone as an internet connection for your computer, its much more useful for the iphone because you can use edge/ 3g for internet, using the ipod for this is useless unless your laptop doesn't have a wireless card
