Now, I'm not an idiot with computers. I work with them every day almost doing IT work, but I just can't seem to figure out how the SOCKS server on the iPhone is working.

It seems that most people get to the point where they have the ad-hock network setup and can ping the iPhone, but no further. The next logical step would be to set the internet browser to look at a proxy server (the SOCKS server v4) at whatever IP you set the iPhone at. Is the port still 1080? I did that in both firefox and IE to no avail.

Some help or a link is appreciated.:)

Same here... I get to the point where my computer recognizes the ah-hoc and connects to it... but cannot manipulate the browser into using that connection for internet...

Correct. Currently there is no real way to do it so some have found a way to install a socks proxy server on the iPhone and through wifi your computer can connect to the iPhone to access the Internet through edge
