Q: How do I disable the auto capitalization and auto correction?

A: Under Settings->General->Keyboard there are options for disabling these features.

 

Q: Where is the "configuration page" on the iPhone app? Where do I find the list off remote computers to connect to?

A: At the top of the app is a navigation bar with a single right button on it.  Clicking it brings you to the next page.  Keep clicking right until you reach the configuration page.

 

Q: My connection is not showing up.  What do I do?

A: Start by checking for firewalls blocking the connection.  On the Linux machine go to System->Administration->Firewall.  You can temporarily disable the firewall to test the connection however in the long run you should add a rule to the firewall allowing the app through.  The default port for the app is 29909 on UDP.

A2: Verify that the Linux machine and the iPhone share a subnet.  On Linux the command "ifconfig" lists IP addresses and netmasks.  To find the IP in the iPhone go to Settings->WiFi and select your network to see your IP.  Use ping and traceroute to verify your connection.

A3: It helps to have the iPhone connected to the WiFi network first then start the server.  To restart the server run sudo /etc/init.d/megamouse_init.sh restart from the Linux command line.

A4: If you are using VMWare or Sun's Virtual Box you must set the network connection to "bridged" mode so that you are sharing a subnet with the iPhone.  For the Virtual Box be sure to attach the bridge to the active network adapter.

 

Q: When i installed the app it did not start.  I tried to start it but it says "Configuration is incorrect" or some similar comment.

A: Upgrade to .Net 3.5 with this link.  http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=333325FD-AE52-4E35-B531-508D977D32A6&displaylang=en

Q: How can I see if the Windows application is able to connect to the network?

A:  You can if it is able to open a network connection by typing "netstat -a" at a DOS command prompt and looking for the default port of 29909.
