Thanks for your response to my emails. I do have one question which may go toward an idiosyncrasy with the product or with my iPod… or I’m just not doing it right. I can’t put my finger on it yet but there seems to be some requirement to connect things in a certain order to make it go. ie:
1)connect to the internet
3)establish wifi connectivity between the iPod and laptop – at this point the wifi settings in the iPod (for the SSID: Virtual Access Point) will show a ip address and subnet
4)then ‘start sharing’ in v-ap application – at this point (or some moments later) the wifi settings in the iPod will show data in the remaining fields: router, dns and search domains
5)only once this happens can you connect through to the Internet with the iPod.
What I have experienced is that if you ‘start sharing’ before the wifi connection is fully established the iPod does not receive the additional settings (router, dns and search domains) and therefore cannot get through to the Internet. In this case the iPod and laptop may look like they are connected (by wifi) but the additional data (router, dns and search domains) do not come through to the iPod.
Sorry if this is a little long winded, but any feedback you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
Hi Virtual AP Team (again),
Please disregard my last message (below). I am not sure what I did
(maybe a little more patience was required) but it is now working. I am
sorry to have sent the last message with such haste. This is a great
product and I will most certainly be ordering a permanent licence. Well
done. You have done what WinXP only claims to be able to do.

Hello Virtual AP Team,
Would like the ability of Virtual Access point to include proxy settings
so the wireless device connected to Virtual AP does not need to input
I have used Virtual Ap on a laptop as a demo license, without any issue.
I then decided to purchase a license, and continue working with it after the
demo license expired.
On the laptop, I installed the Full version and entered the license you send
I can configure the Virtual Ap application correctly, I see the SSID on my
iPhone, I connect successfully but as I see the iPhone never gets an IP…
See the screenshot I send you,
I am having issues trying to demo your software. I am attempting to use virtual access point to share my sprint card connection through my wireless. According to the limited instructions, when I start up virtual AP, I should see the default virtual AP to join through the wireless on my iPod. I am unfortunately not seeing it. VAP shows that it has a connection to the internet through my sprint card, but fails to allow me to set up a connection with my iPod.
I am attempting to use your software to share my sprint connection on my laptop across my internal wireless card. Your software see’s that I am connected to the internet, and it see’s my wireless card, but for some reason it says my wireless card is disconnected. In looking at my network manager, my wireless card is active and is running. Do you know what I would need to do to get this functioning so I can share?
I am operating on an HP DV laptop, with windows vista, all updates
Now it’s my turn to apologize for a late reply.
I was away on vacation with no internet access. My question originally arose when I was travelling, accessing a different network. Since at home I have a wireless router, there is no problem with making the iPod connection. Is there any way we can trouble shoot this without my having to be in an area with no wireless signal? To answer your questions based on the place where I was having trouble:
1). To the best of my knowledge I chose the right network, which was LAN. But that choice was based on the fact that my laptop connected to the wireless network on a LAN protocol. I can’t tell you the IP address because I am no longer there; my home network has a wireless signal so I don’t see how to figure this out here.
2). The laptop uses AVG Internet Security. I don’t know if it is blocking the internet from the iPod (not iPad); I don’t think so because I can’t find any notice in the AVG module.
3). For the wired network where I was there were no other strict rules.
Of course, now much of the information is outdated because, as I mentioned, when I originally emailed you I was in a different place staying temporarily, and have long since returned home. Is this something which we can figure out without having a wired connection only?
As I recently purchased and installed Virtual Access Point version 3.0.0 and can’t get it to work properly, I need help. I want to use my laptop as a server to my iPod Touch. I can’t find any instructions on how to do this. Can you help me? My laptop is running Windows XP, the wireless connection software is Intel PROSet/Wireless and the wireless card in the laptop is 802.11 G/N. Do I need any other hardware in order to broadcast the signal?
