There is no way I can connect to the ue0 device. Also,
accessing the network (for example via NFS or even
using plain old FTP) is not supported natively by iOS,
which implies that searching and installing a 3rd party
app is required. This sounds very complicated.

Basically, I read that people using Linux got it working.
I have the most recent software on my FreeBSD machine,
so I _assume_ that it should be possible there as well.
However, I also read that there have been problems after
iOS updates and others related to OpenSSL / GnuTLS, which
again should not be a problem anymore as those discussions
happened years ago.

Still - no solution... Can it be that hard?!
