Full Version: SL-C760: HOWTO see network from NetFront?

I have an SL-C760 with a stock Sharp 1.20 JP ROM (converted to English by Dynamism). I'm running kernel 2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix and I've installed Apache/PHP and sshd ipk's.

I have successfully setup TCP over USB / NAT to my Mandrake 9.0 Linux system and I am able to access that box as well as ping external sites by name.

How do I get NetFront (v 3.0) to see the network? I think the problem actually starts in Network Settings - What should I have setup there to recognize the TCP over USB connection? (My possible connection types listed are: Wireless LAN card, LAN card, Dial-up -PPP but none of those really seems to fit nor work)

Thanks,

P.S. Btw, I am comfortable with a flat-file, shell solution to this if that is the way to go..

Another related question is how to get NetFront to display the local Apache site. On any linux box I've seen so far you just point it at localhost or 127.0.0.1 but that doesn't work here. Perhaps an answer to my original question will solve this or perhaps it requires a seperate answer.

Thanks,

This is a FAQ. If you had searched before posting you would already know that netfront gets it's network status from qtopia.

Unfortunately, qtopia doesn't recognise usb network as a valid network so you have to force it to see the network is up.
CODE
qcop QPE/Network "up()"
is waht you are looking for. (Note this is from memory so I may have got it slightly wrong, but it's very close - search for "Netfront qcop" is it doesn't work)

Umm, unless you have a webserver running (which, in my opinion, is a waste of Zaurus resources), you won't get anything. If you do have a webserver running, you probably have it configured wrong.

Thanks, StuBear. It's not in the FAQ but there is a thread about it:
Accessing USB TCP/IP Connection from Qtopia Desktop App (NetFront)

Chaos: As mentioned, I have installed Apache/PHP. Local access would be very handy for web development while travelling. There is no need for real internet access when developing your own site :-) As long as you tweak the Apache config to suite the constraints there isn't really a noticeable impact on performance.
