Hey guys. Been using free WAP from T-Mobile via my laptop/PPC for nearly a year now. The problem is that you are restricted to a small # of ports (Port 80 being the most visible). Unfortunately, since free WAP is restricted, you will not be able to access secure (https) websties via free wap.
There is a workaround for this. Here is a linik to a thread that describes how to setup a secure proxy server which will allow you to bypass the restricted ports available from free wap and will give you access to ALL ports. You will need a computer at home to act as a host computer (it must be left on if you would like to access restricted ports from the client computer).
Please check out the last posts in the above thread by me (hd54321). I wrote a rough step-by-step for a WinXP setup. In my reply, I refer to another reply in the thread (by evanichka) who did a more comprehensive writeup. Between both writeups, you should be able to set this up in no time.
Good luck and let me know if you need help.
