OverviewSherpa enables the iPhone Safari web-browser to securely access web applications running on your legacy desktop, via the Internet, regardless of firewalls or routers.
ComponentsSherpa consists of three components:
An iPhone client to initiate connections A responding client, running on your Windows or OSX machine An echoServer which connects initiating clients to responding clients
BackgroundSherpa's connectivity will be based on the echoWare/echoServer platform I helped develop for the EchoVNC project. In this project, the initiating and responding clients use the open-source echoWare toolkit, currently ported to Windows, OSX and Linux. The echoServer which connects echoWare clients together is "try before buy" commercial binary, currently available in Windows and Linux.
