So does the iPhone contains Mobile Web Server, aka Raccoon? Instead of “websites”, Raccoon asks us to think using “mobsites”, mobile websites. This comes as a port of Apache web server to mobile phone platforms. From what I’ve been able to google, Raccoon enables mobile phone users to become content providers (using their keyboards, microphones and onboard cameras). I am just starting to learn about this so thanks in advance to anyone who can point me to more information about iPhone-generated content, Raccoon, and gateways. Am I right in thinking this goes beyond just normal virtual private networks?
Update: Here’s a post from Radar last year by Nikolaj Nyholm on Raccoon.
Update 2: Reader Rodolphe suggests that the racoon on the iphone is not the Nokia variant but rather part of the IPSec tools and used for connecting the iPhone to VPNs. Man page
Update 3: The “cc” versus “c” should have given it away. The cool Mobile Web Server has two c’s. The VPN stuff only has one c. Mea culpa–or more realistically mea reculpa.
