    Opera Mini 4 using Socket connection on an 8100

    Advertisement



    Is anyone able to use the above? I can connect using HTTP (in Opera Mini's Settings), but if I change it to Socket I get "Failed to connect to the Internet". I selected "Allow all" to Socket connections when I started OM for the first time so that's not the issue.

    Any ideas would be much appreciated! I can run vTap fine, and according to its settings that is using a Socket connection.

    I am using socket in fact, I've always used socket, maybe it's a carrier issue, I'm thinking that the carrier that you are using doesn't allow use of the specific port you need to use Opera Mini 4 and block it. Is there a specific reason you want Opera Mini 4 to connect via socket instead of HTTP?

    From the Opera Mini FAQ (http://www.operamini.com/help/faq):

    What is the difference between ‘http connection' and ‘socket connection'?

    If you choose to use "socket connection," Opera Mini will keep an open connection to the Opera Mini servers. This means that pages will load quicker, and the Opera Mini servers can push updates (for example new bookmarks through Opera Link) directly to Opera Mini on your phone.

    If you choose "http connection," Opera Mini has to establish a connection to the Opera Mini servers every time you load a page. New updates to Opera Mini will also not be pushed to the phone until a new page is loaded. Note: not all phone models and mobile networks allow socket connections. If you have problems with your connection, try to use "http connection" instead.

    If anyone who uses Opera Mini on a BB on Vodafone UK happens across this thread, please could you try with Socket connection and see if it works for you? Would be much appreciated, thanks!
