A few more questions....
Authored by: markpaterson on Nov 03, '02 12:59:23PM
1. You say "Because the PPP server listens for connections on /dev/tty.Bluetooth-PDA-Sync, you cannot HotSync your Palm via Bluetooth while the PPP server is running." . Can the Palm still be connected to a Bluetooth mobile phone (T68i) for sending/receiving SMS, etc while the PPP server is running? Can my Mac be connected to another Bluetooth device (eg - T68i mobile phone) while the PPP server is running?

2. I have an ADSL always-on ethernet connection, through the Alcatel SpeedTouchPro router, do i need to change any of the above commands?

Thank you, I look forward to trying this.

Should be no changes to use this with an ADSL connection.

As for the Motorola T68i... hrm. That's a good question. You should check the System Preferences, especially the Network panel, and see what the name of the Bluetooth modem interface is. If it's the same as the one used by PPP, it <i>might</i> not work. :(
