It used to be at work, we can set our iPad's Proxy to something like
8888, and then this iPad will be able to connect to our Macbook Pro machine (which is connected to the company network by VPN).
With the port
But recently, the network configuration has changed and we can't connect to the Macbook Pro any more. We can still do the same old way if we are at home, using a local IP address like
192.168.1.80. So is there any way at all to make this work? By using Bluetooth, for example, or by the connection cable, just somehow be able to connect to the Macbook to port
3000, and we can always use
rsh to route it to our
8888 if needed. The ultimate goal is to be able to use Safari on the iPad to use the Macbook Pro's port
8888 as a proxy.
