Already been documented for him in the sticky thread
ETI eBook Publisher : bug reports / workarounds / update requests
; if he wants to look....

I checked the migration firmwares at the ETI website and they appear to be at version 4.2f22 for the REB1200 and 4.2f17 for the EBW1150. Hope this helps. I will be upgrading my original REB1200 soon!

Did he ask how well this 1999/2000 hardware product surfs the 'net? ask you for any tips?

Nate, would you mind testing the latest version of Scroogled in IMP to see if it really does work when you click the MobileRead link? I know for sure that one went HTML (original) > Book Designer > HTML (from Book Designer) > Mobipocket Creator (HTML from Book Designer) > IMP (Mobi2IMP)

I have installed python and the utilities. But I have no idea how to get this to work. I have IMPServe working and have put 2 .imp books in the contents folder but how do I redirect the reader to look at this file? I have never used Python so its all really confusing!!! I have the colour of magic that I am desperate to read it.

Any help is appreciated.

First, you'll have to go to settings, Ethernet Connection (1200) or Phone Connection (1150) and then tick the HTTP proxy box and enter the host as your IP address (1200) or 127.0.0.1 (1150). Then go to the online bookshelf, and you can access those IMPs. (You can find your IP on Windows by typing "cmd /k ipconfig" in Start -> Run).

If you want to do regular browsing, then you can create an index.html in the content folder with links to your favorite sites e.g.

Code:
<html><body><h1>Links</h1>
<p><a href="http://google.com/">Google</a></p>
<p><a href="http://www.mobileread.mobi/">Mobileread</a></p>
</body></html>
You can then use Menu -> Directory to go to this landing page, and from there on explore the net!

Do you get any messages in the impserve window when you access the online bookshelf? If not, your configuration might be wrong (did you remember to tick the HTTP Proxy checkbox?).

It worked, but the previous version worked better. In the version you uploaded this morning, the hyperlink has disappeared. I had to highlight the entire link before it would work. On the previous version, I simply clicked on it.

The current version has the current logo. The previous version has the "Saturn's Thumb" logo.

I found one way to make this not work. Whenever my 8MB storage was full, I kept getting data fault errors. Once I freed up about 3MB, I had much fewer errors.

Okay, that's better ... I've assumed you've entered the host as 127.0.0.1. Can you tell me what message the impserve window gives (or at least post a screenshot of what it is showing)?

I'm using EBW1150 with version 4.2f17 (updated it last week) and cannot surf the web from ebooks.
I rechecked using privoxy and I CAN surf to google Canana News link. I don't know if there's something going on in impserve's HTML parsing process. Maybe the file gets larger? I certainly don't know.

What kind of an error do you get, Ret? I'd appreciate it if you could post the server logs...
