Credit goes to fish199902 for this one. Basically, you setup an SSH tunnel to the Pre, which supports running as a SOCKS proxy. You then configure your browser to point to this proxy and BAM, you’re tethering away.
Connect to your Pre’s NAP (network access point) via Bluetooth:
Ignore this error message on your Pre:
Using PuTTY, configure the following settings under Connection -> SSH -> Tunnels:
- Source port: 8080
- Destination: Dynamic and Auto radio buttons
- Click Add and you’ll see the port in the “Forwarded ports” box
Then, initiate the SSH connection to your Pre. Going through Bluetooth and using port 222, your connection window will look like this:
Once you’re at the login screen, configure your browser’s SOCKS proxy with:
- Address: localhost
- Port: 8080
Now you’re good to go!
