Just got mine to work with 10.2.4
Authored by: sleepwalker on Feb 25, '03 03:06:26AM

So it took me a while to get it working.

You see I am in the habit of disabling network interfaces I don't use. I was trying to set this up over airport and the airport location I was using has Built-In Ethernet disabled. As it turns out, this immediatly shuts down InternetSharing because it thinks you have no ports to share with.

The moral of the story:
If you are using this with airport, make sure that Built-In Ethernet is enabled. Otherwise InternetSharing kills itself.

Also of note: 10.2.4 comes with a Bluetooth Serial Utility which allows you to create any configure your own bluetooth serial ports. Check it out, it is pretty useful.

Just got mine to work with 10.2.4

Mine won't work...very frustrating, as I'm sure you know.
I have Mac OSX.2.4 and a Palm Tungsten T.
I've followed your directions and also tried the ones in the original post. I can sync and send/receive files between iMac and T|T, no problem. What I can't do is get an internet connection.
I've assigned an IP to my T|T that is within the range of my internal IP addresses. When I try to connect to the Network in Prefs, I get "Initializing," then "Signing on," then finally this error:
"Error: PPP timeout (0x1231)".
Can you offer anything else - thank you!
