Bluetooth Internet Sharing -> Palm
Authored by: rjv on Nov 12, '02 11:22:52AM

I have been fooling around with this for a few days with limited success. I added the ISHARE flag to the Hostconfig file and tried the startup files without sucess. I am able to get my Palm to connect to my PowerBook by doing the following statements in Terminal:

1) Remove Transport Monitor from my Startup Pane
2) Go to root level (cd /) in Terminal and sudo /usr/libexec/InternetSharing
3) sudo /usr/sbin/pppd /dev/tty.Bluetooth-PDA-Sync 115200 noauth local passive proxyarp asyncmap 0 silent persist :10.1.1.201 & (all on one line)

This allows me to connect to my Mac (I can even ping, etc.) but I still am not able to get Internet Sharing to work.

I would appreciate help in this area. I think it is something simple that I am overlooking.

Hmm, I just recently bought a Tungsten, and today got my Bluetooth adapter. So I came right here, and followed the above hint verbatim (putting the one three-line row on one row), and it worked perfectly on the first try!

I had a "transport monitor can't start" message or somesuch when I restarted, but it's working fine...

Any ideas ? Thanks ...


I'm getting this on boot:
Oct 2 18:17:38 Vigor10 ConsoleMessage: Starting PPP/Bluetooth
Oct 2 18:17:38 Vigor10 SystemStarter: Unable to load localization strings for /Library/StartupItems/ISharing
Oct 2 18:17:38 Vigor10 InternetSharing[453]: no primary service specified, exiting
Oct 2 18:17:38 Vigor10 pppd[455]: unknown host: persist

Tried this via terminal but all I get is this ...

[Vigor10:/] barrierobinson% sudo /usr/sbin/pppd /dev/tty.IPShare 115200 noauth local passive proxyarp asyncmap 0 silent persist:192.168.10.140 &

There's a space between persist and :192.168.10.140.
