HoTTProxy Setup

If you are using wap.google.com you’ll notice there are a lot of things that you can’t do when surfing around the web.  The biggest problem is that you can’t store any cookies on your phone so you can’t login to many pages to check your various accounts.  There is a solution!  HoTTProxy is a WAP Proxy server that runs on your local machine and when you direct your WAP traffic through it, will store your cookies for you allowing you a much richer internet experience through your cell phone.  This is mainly general information, but the specifics are for to LG enV vx9900.  Here’s what you need to do…


Step 1.  Download HoTTProxy (get the compiled executable)

Step 2. Create a folder and upzip the files into it – C:\HoTTProxy will do nicely

Step 3. Run HoTTProxy_Admin.exe – You’ll get the following message : You may connect to the HoTTProxy Admin at http://localhost:8085/ 

Step 4.  Click the above link to get to YOUR local admin console.  Bookmark this page.

Step 5.  Click Create User, fill in at least the required fields, and click submit

Step 6. If your IP address from your ISP is dynamic (most are)  you’ll want to set up a free account with DynDNS and either set up your router or download their ip updater software… more on this here 

Step 7.  If you are leaving everything else defaulted then forward port 9201 to the computer running HoTTProxy.  More on port forwarding here.

Step 8.  If you haven’t already, you’ll need to use BitPim to make your phone’s WAP settings editable… more on this soon.

Step 9.  WAP Settings

-Set the primary proxy address with the address assigned by DynDNS. 

-Set both primary port types to 9201, leave the home page on the phone to it’s default.

-Set the User Name and Password to the ones from your user setup

Step 11. Run HoTTProxy.exe .  You may want to drop a shortcut into your startup folder or follow the directions here to set it up as a “Pseudo-Service”. 

Step 12.  Fire up the web brower on your phone and see how it goes!  Make sure that HoTTProxy and it’s port are allowed by any firewall you may be running!

I’ll be updating this article so please leave comments with any problems you encounter or any steps I may have left out.

    I am having trouble with this. I have followed all of the steps, and re-checked everything multiple times. I am still just getting “For Wireless Internet Services, please dial *611″

    Lets zoom in on the problem it's either the phone, the connection to HoTTProxy, or HoTTProxyitself.
    1. Set back up for wap.google.com and port 80. Does this work?
    2. If yes then check your HoTTProxy logs and see if you see any access attempts? Are there any?
    3. If yes then did you get any errors? What are they?

    doesn't work for me either, i created a dyndns account, set up hottproxy, didn't work, had my proxy set up to my dyndns thing. i switched it back to wap.google.com and works fine.

  • schimmi

    now it just says for wireless internet services dial #611

    wap.google.com works

    no access attempts

  • schimmi

    could you just use your average proxy server adress?

  • schimmi

    with the wap.google.com adress i keep getting an error message that says: http error: 400 bad request.

    The DynDNS account can take a little while to be setup and working, if you do a trace route to your dynDNS domain what happens? To do a trace route you open up a DOS prompt and type in “tracert blahblah.blah.net” replacing the blah stuff with your dynDNS domain name. If it works and gives you just one hop (assumeing you're running from your box with HoTTProxy installed) try the HoTTProxy setup on your phone again. Disable firewalls (temporarily) and make sure your port is forwarded correctly.
