Hi All,
I am trying to set up slirp tethering as outlined here:
Better iPhone Tethering

Everything was going well until the very end when I try to launch slirp from Mobile Terminal, it just says "Killed." I'm not very Terminal-savvy, so I don't really know where to begin troubleshooting. I've redone the commands in Terminal on the Mac to install slirp and give it execute permissions, and they seem to work properly, but I still just get "killed" when trying to run slirp.

Can anybody help me out? I have successfully tethered using the SOCKS method, but I really need all my apps to have net access, not just the browser, so I desperately want to get the slirp method to work.

P.S. I have a 3G

One more thing I discovered: when I try to give slirp execute permissions while ssh'ed from my Mac, it says nothing after the command (chmod +x /usr/bin/slirp). When I enter the same command in Mobile Terminal it says "operation not permitted." Is that normal when trying to do it from the phone, or is this a sign of an incompatibility with 2.0?

My guess is that the slirp binary is not compatible with iPhone version 2.0. Anyone knows where to get 2.0 compatible version?

MobileTerminal seems to log in as mobile user that does not have proper permissions to do that. From your mac you probably logged in as root.

Haven't had luck myself but have gotten a little further. The binary on that page does seem to indeed be for firmware 1.x. For a 2.x binary that does more than just die, search for slirp in Cydia and install. Might want to remove the old 1.x binary first though.
