Default HTTP-Tunnel for Android akin Proxycap

Hi,

Iīm a HTC Touch HD User, but now I want to move to Android (HTC Desire).

I live in Germany and my provider is Vodafone and the sold me a wap Flatrate. My English is not perfect but I hope you can help me anyway.

To use my Blackstone with Internet I have to do some settings. In my HTC Touch HD I have to set my connections like this:

Settings--Connections--Connections--Advanced--Select Networks--New

First I have to add a new modem:
Access point name: wap.vodafone.de
Then I have to use "IP header compression"

Secondary I have to set my Proxy Setting like this:
Type: HTTP, WAP, Secure WAP and Socks to 139.7.29.1:80

Additional to this, I have to use Proxycap from proxycap.com
For the perfect working I have to set proxycap like this:
Proxies--Add new proxy...:
Type: HTTPS
Host: 139.7.29.1
Port: 80

Rules--Add new rule...:
Name: xyz (for example)
Type: Tunnel through proxy
Proxy: 139.7.29.1:80
Transports: TCP

Only with this settings I can use nearly all things on my HTC Touch HD (except the twitter-tab but it doesnīt matter).

Now my question. Is there an alternative program to Proxycap on Android? Or can I set Android to use a HTTPS tunnel?

I now my English is bad but I hope you understand my question and you can help me.

Best regards

you can easily fiddle your apn settings out of this huge apn list that comes from cyanogen and is implemented like this into gaosp open source project for samsung galaxy

uups can not post links here yet so i did it for you ;)

Quote:
<apn carrier="Vodafone D2"
172 - mcc="262"
173 - mnc="02"
174 - apn="web.vodafone.de"
175 - type="default"
176 - auth="1"
177 - />
178 - <apn carrier="Vodafone D2 MMS"
179 - mmsc="h_t_t_p://139.7.24.1/servlets/mms"
180 - mmsproxy = "139.7.29.17"
181 - mmsport = "80"
182 - mcc="262"
183 - mnc="02"
184 - apn="event.vodafone.de"
185 - type="mms"
186 - auth="1"

And how/where can I fiddle this?
Sorry, perhaps my English is too bad but didnīt understand what you mean.
Do I have to root my device to use this "trick"?


EDIT: OK, I found Cyanogenmod.com Can I use this MOD for the HTC Tattoo/Click? Itīs the device of my girlfriend. And is it possible that this will not work wit the Desire (my next device)?
I donīt know if these questions are stupid but Iīm new on Android. WinMobile isnīt much easier for me.

Best Regards

I am also looking for something akin to Proxycap, for Android.

...

The APN settings don't look like they have the key to this. Am I to create a new XML tag for each app that needs to go through the proxy?

what can be done is using a proxy and iptables to direct traffic. I have been trying to get this working but I am not able to get apps for linux compiled for arm. I have tried to compile u2nl for android which with iptables will route traffic through a proxy all traffic. If anyone has information on how to make this run on android would love to hear.

Just search the market for a program called APN Backup & Restore. MAKE SURE you backup your APN's (twice!) so that when you mess with it, and your phone loses all cell phone signal, you can DELETE then RESTORE APNs! (don't just restore, without deleting, because it adds them all together).

Ok, thank you.

So is it right, there is no App with nearly the same function as Proxycap for Android?

And how can I set a VPN tunnel to my router?

I hope you understand my English!
