10.4: Use a Bluetooth personal area network (PAN)
Authored by: henryng on Mar 29, '07 08:38:42AM

actually the BT PAN also works with the PDA phone with WM5 AKU 3. All you need to do is enable the "Network sharing" application on the PDA phone and then pair it up with you Mac on BT. Once they are connected and you will see under the BT menu a "Join network". Select it and the you will be connected to the internet via the PDA's data network. Very simple to setup and no more DUN modem script kind of headache.

You can do the similar thing with USB PAN but you need the Missingsync to enable the USB Networking on the Mac.

Well done Apple!

I'm curious as to what this would be used for.

Thanks
