Mine doesn't
Authored by: knappa on Mar 13, '03 11:04:10PM

I can't even connect to the server using my Tungsten. I get an 'Error: Serial: timeout. Could be bad cable or faulty Modem. (0x0305)' message. You seem to be having succeeded with a pretty similar config.
I have an iMac DVSE 500 Mhz, a Tungsten T & a Keyspan Bluetooth adapter. I can send contacts and events via Bluetooth, so I'm guessing it's not the adapter which is at fault. Any ideas ?

Mine also doesn't. I can send/receive files to/from my TT and iMac (17", 800 MHz, OS 10.2.4). However, I can't share the internet connection so I can't browse, ping, etc.
I have tried following the directions elsewhere in this site to no avail.
What could possibly be the issue?
I have assigned an IP address to the Network configuration of my TT.
I have correctly assigned DNS server addresses as well for my ISP.
The Network Log reveals the following:

LCP->CfgReq (repeated five times)
LCP->TrmReq
Not connected

Any ideas? Thanks.

Just to help you along one step further. I tried the tip named: 'Bluetooth Internet Sharing -> Palm'. This allowed to make a connection to my iMac. Unfortunately, I still can't even ping any adress. I'll keep trying till I can use ICQ from my bed !!!

Hmmm. Where did you find that particular hint? I myself have no problem doing file transfers and syncing over bluetooth. However, i can't get the internet connection shared yet - very disappointing. If you figure it out, please be sure to share here. Thanks!
