Hmm, yes, same discussion - thanks.  Unfortunately that thread just faded
out with no real solution for how to connect to running server on N800 when
offline.   One suggestion 'rewrite the application'  definitely not an
option (especially as I've spent two months porting it to N800.).

Hi, I have a Wiki running on my N800 using the usual configuration (for many
applications) of a TCP/IP server running on the local host address
( and an TCP/IP client on the same device.  (In this case an HTTP 
web server and the Opera browser.)

While trying to test this on an aeroplane at the weekend -- with Wi-Fi
offline, of course -- the browser would not connect to the server.  I've
since experimented further and find a similar (or the same) problem occurs 
online if no Wi-Fi connection is active.

This is a showstopper for my application as it means I cannot easily view my
data unless online and connected -- is there a fix/workaround?

Thanks -- mfc
