I connected my OpenMoko phone to my PC using the method (below) 
recommended on the relevant Wiki. Whereas I do not know of an 
application with a graphical user interface, useful for accomplishing this!

{With the device connected configure usb0 interface (as root or via sudo 
like in this example):

sudo ip address add dev usb0
sudo ip link set dev usb0 up

or (deprecated)

sudo ifconfig usb0 netmask up

If your eth0 interface is also in the same 'range' (e.g. 
then you can do the following:

sudo route add -host dev usb0}
