How To Connect To A SOCKS Proxy From An Unjailbroken iPhone/iPod TouchPublished in: JavaScript Lets say, perhaps, that you are already forwarding your web traffic through an SSH/SOCKS tunnel at work for privacy reasons that have absolutely no relation to accessing blocked sites LOL! and you would like to use that same tunnel on your iPhone/iPod Touch. This is actually pretty easy to accomplish.First, you need to make sure the SOCKS tunnel on your work computer allows LAN connections so your iPhone/iPod Touch can connect to it. To do this, you simply need to add -g to your existing SSH command something like ssh -N -g -D 1080 people think you cant connect to a SOCKS proxy from an iPhone/iPod Touch without jailbreaking it but the truth is you can. You simply have to create a Proxy Auto-Config PAC file, insert the function below in it replace the xs with your IP and the ys with the port you used after the -D in your SSH command, and save it to a web accessible place with a .pac extension. If youre reading this chances are you know how to serve a file over HTTP on your work LAN, so I wont delve into that.Finally, on your iPhone/iPod Touch, go to Settings > Wifi and click the blue arrow to the right of your work network, scroll to the bottom, click Auto and type in the address to your PAC file e.g. http://192.168.xx.xx/mysupersecretproxy.pac.Congrats! Now you can surf the web securely from your iPhone/iPod touch ;Expand | Embed | Plain Textfunction FindProxyForURLurl, host { return “SOCKS 192.168.xx.xx:yyyy”;}Report this snippet
