Air Sharing

According to my previous post, Air Sharing may convert your iPhone or iPod Touch become as a wireless drive. It’s also works as a mobile hard disk that lets you carry & view documents on-the-go, even when you’re offline. Click here for more details how to sync Air Sharing to your PC.

What i’ve been discovered here is your iPhone may become as mobile server while using Air Sharing application. It’s mean you can transfer and view documents from PC to another PC using internet browser as long as your iPhone stay connect with network (EDGE/WIFI/3G). Also you could download and store documents from PC to another PC using Air Sharing. I’ve been trying it using Mozilla Fire Fox browser and its works very well. See instruction below how to connect Air Sharing using Mozilla Fire Fox browser.

Step 1: Run Mozilla Fire Fox browser and open Air Sharing on iPhone, make sure your iPhone connect to network. You should find a HTTP URL in the status bar at the bottom. This is the iPhone’s URL your internet browser will connect to.

Step 2: Just type the your iPhone’s IP address (http://192.168.2.2:8080) at the address bar on the Mozilla Fire Fox browser. Now you can access all files in your iPhone. If the files still not appear yet, just click “Reload/Refresh” on your internet browser.

In my opinion, please try all steps above on Safari or other internet browser. Hope it should works very well.
