Default [APP] WIFI Remote Access: Remote control, SMS and File transfer through a web browser

Hi,

Here is a free application I've developed for Windows Mobile 6.x.

http://www.julien-manici.com/windows...remote_access/

It's basically a web server (and FTP server) that runs on your device so that you can browse its content from a web browser. No software install computer side.

It works either with :
-a WIFI connection,
-an USB connection (Windows Mobile Device Center or -ActiveSync needs to be installed and Advanced networking functionnality must not have been disabled on the device)

It serves mostly html pages, but for pictures browsing under Internet Explorer 7/8 it will show a .net/WPF/3D based UI that brings support for multiple file upload (any file type, not just pictures)


Now available on the English-US marketplace :

Basic version (free) :

Premium version :

Is it possible for this to work over 3G? In my area, the 3G connection is ridiculously fast.

That would be indeed good.
I did nothing to prevent incoming request from connected network interfaces.
This means a connection could come from WIFI, usb with advanced networking enabled, or 3G. (note that it always ask you to authorize the incoming connection)

But that will probably not work with 3G, because most mobile network operators don't provide a public IP address, but a private IP address with a NAT routing system. No way to etablish a connection from another computer on the internet. (It can be possible only from another device in the same operator network).

Maybe there are some mobile operator who provide public IP addresses to their customers, in this case, this should work. But I'm not aware of any mobile operator doing that

This is also the reason why there haven't been massive ownage of jailbreaked iphones with ssh enabled with alpine root pwd! (until a few weeks ago in a specific mobile operator network)


Anyway I will probably build an azure based service someday (if there is enough demand) to provide some sort of relay to make this feature possible. But I won't be able to provide it for free, since windows azure hosting is not free. I'm thinking to do that to enable SMS sending/reading from a computer anytime, as Exchange 2010 does.

a login system would be able to take care of that.. but would require a public server to translate logins from the phone and their 3G IPs to the PC side of it..

Just food for thought
