Brickhouse Setup
Authored by: rjv on Nov 14, '02 10:24:08PM

I have gotten some emails re: setting up Brickhouse - here is how I do it:

1) First turn off all firewalls on Brickhouse (Ethernet, PPP, PPPoE, AirPort and IP Gateway).

2) Go to IP Gateway and select Add Gateway (on the bottom). Select Airport or Second Ethernet Card (en1) and enter a Gateway IP Address (any number on your subnet not being used elsewhere). The Incoming Gateway and Firewall boxes should be left unchecked. Click OK

3) Go to the 'Internet Connection Via' button and select AirPort (en1). Dynamic Address (DHCP) is also checked off. Now select 'Start IP Sharing', go to your Bluetooth PDA and see if you can get a connection. This same set up will work with Ethernet by going back to the 'Internet Connection Via' button and selecting Ethernet (en0).

Lastly, make sure you have included valid DNS numbers in the Palm network setup (under details) as listed in the original note above.

Brickhouse Setup
Authored by: mintymiller on Jun 14, '03 08:09:47AM

Hi rjv
Tried your Brickhouse hint without success. One thing I'm not clear about is where the new ISharing folder is created. Is it in the root system/Library/Startupitems path or is it in the user/library/startupitems path? If the latter, then I'll also have to create a new Startupitems folder as there isn't one in there already. With the folder in the root path, I get a PPP Bluetooth start-up dialogue during boot-up, so I guess the server is working....but I can't get my PDA to share with it. It does establish a connection but times out during sign on with a PPP error.
