iStat Server for OS X can be downloaded from bjango.com/apps/istat/. To install, double click the iStat Server Installer icon, then click install.
The iStat Server Process will continue running even when the iStat Server application is closed, so you don’t need to keep it open to see stats on your iPhone.
Please note that iStat Server requires OS X 10.4 Client or newer, or OS X 10.4 Server or newer.
A bug in iStat 1.0 might cause issues connecting iStat to your Mac running iStat Server—iPhones and iPods with names with two-byte characters in them can not connect (â, ø, etc). Renaming your iPhone or iPod to only contain a combination of a-z and 0-9 should fix the issue. This bug has been addressed in iStat 1.1.
Please note that most problems with TCP/IP iStat monitoring occur because the router or firewall haven’t been configured properly. It’s beyond the scope of our help documentation to assist setting up your router—please refer to the documentation that came with your router.
The passcode is the 5 digit number displayed in the middle of the iStat Server window. This is needed when connecting an iPhone to your Mac or Mac server—the iStat iPhone app will ask for this number.
Clicking New Passcode will create a new passcode. Please note that this will not reset previous authorizations and iPhones that have previously connected to iStat Server won’t need to enter the new passcode. If you’d like to reset authorizations as well, then click Reset Authorizations.
Clicking Lock Passcode will change the passcode display to dashes, making it unviewable until it’s unlocked again.
Clicking Reset Authorizations resets all authorizations, meaning any iPhones that try to connect will need to re-enter the passcode.
Clicking Show Log will open the connection log, allowing you to see information about the previous connections and connection attempts to iStat Server.
To change the port iStat Server uses, choose File > Change Port.
To uninstall, choose Uninstall iStat Server from the iStat Server menu while running iStat Server.
If for some reason you can't open iStat Server to access the Uninstall iStat menu option:
