This is the fourth of 4 postings related to my first Android phone I did buy 4 months ago:

myAndroid -- DataPower WebGUI
The biggest problem for running DataPower WebGUI on my ZTE Blade Android phone was this:
It is my private device and therefore I am not allowed to connect it to the IBM network
where all my DataPower boxes live in a rack in data center of Böblingen lab.
So what did I do?
Since last December DataPower virtual appliances are available.
Following that idea I just had to make sure that my laptop running virtual XI52 is not connected to IBM network.
I did use my Android FTV as wireless hotspot (it allows for USB tethering, too).
And I did configure the virtual appliance to receive all three ethernet interface IP addresses by DHCP (from Android).
See the output of "show interfaces" CLI command here (192.168.43.1 is my Android wireless hotspot):
After logging in I got to Control Panel view of WebGUI (click for 800x480 display):
Next I started navigation via the Search bar.
As you can see the Android keyboard uses a big part of the display:
Connecting the Wireless keyboard gives more WebGUI display:
Only a small part of the display is used by Bluetooth menue now (click for 800x480 display):
After selecting "Stylesheet Status" with finger touch I got to that screen:
Since moving around the display is easily done with the finger on the
touch display working with WebGUI is easy.
Of course a bigger display (7 or 10 inch tablet) would be better.
But with a 3.5 inch Android cell phone DataPower WebGUI can be used, too.
