I can view a "loading" doohickey forever.

I have the same problem, but only with one of my two Macs:

On my MacBook iPhone Remote works well, on my PowerMacG4 the iPhone Remote server does not respond, 
even not when trying "View Web Page" from the "iPhone Remote" menu on the PowerMacG4. It just hangs: 

Input of a wrong IP or port delivers (in Safari on the machine where iPhone Remote is run): Safari can’t open 
the page “” because it could not connect to the server “”.

Input of the right IP and port ( “”) delivers no response. 

My interpretation is that the server is there but cannot display the screen wit the buttons in the browser.

Does iPhone Remote only run on Intel Mac? Any other reason for the problems I encuntered on my PowerMac.

Same OS 10.4.11 on both Macs, firewall off for testing.

Ok guys, I had the same problem  at the beginning.
Here's a little step by step. I hope it will help :
-go to system preferences > Sharing > Firewall 
-Click on Port Name and select Other
-Just enter 5010 in both TCP or UDP fields
-Name as you want (iPhone Remote could be excellent)

-Now run iPhone on your computer, choose your login and pass
-Go to your iPhone (iPod Touch in my case) and type the exact address of your computer "https://.... :5010"
-Wait a few seconds , Safari mobile will pop up a screen to enter the login and pass you just chose !
-Then , enjoy !

OS : MacOSX.4.11
App version : iPhone Remote 0.9.21
Remote : iPod Touch 16Go 1.1.3/January Update/ Not Jailbroken.

PS : To know the exact adress seen by iPhone Remote, just click "view web page" in the menu.
It will launch your browser then you will see the address : "https://...... :5010". Use it in your iPhone/iPod 
Good luck.

...thanks for the advice, but the encounetred problem is not a firewall problem and occurs even when firewall is 
off, The problem occurs only on my PowerBookG4 and not on my MacBook (see above), although all preference 
settings and the OS-versions are identical.

Best bets is that this software is not available for a PowerPC (what I have).  I should try this software and see if it 
works on an intel, instead.

if you want to connect from external lan you need to use this  http://publicIP:5010  but you need to open the 
port 5010 in your router thats all and it works really great

Same thing here, with a MacBook Pro on 10.5.X (lastest), app launched, but nothing
work. Basically, View web page do not respond, and I tryed a telnet on
localhost:5010, nothing too (Connection refused) . My firewall is off ...

Any idea ?
