Re: Tethering Pocket PC phone/modem? - 10-14-2008, 11:13 PM
I am new to this forum, so Hello everyone. Probably will see me lurking around the Linux side of these forums.
I have a treo 800w with windoze mobile 6.1, so I am in the same boat as you. Check out this link, once I get mine (...) I would possibly write up a howto if shown enough interest. http://www.sysadminsjourney.com/2008/09 ... -to-linux/

There is one slight caveat, the Bluetooth tether shows up as a Wired Connection in Network Settings. You have to disable the automatic configuration for that one connection (it should be the last one) and set it to DHCP. You'll know you've changed the correct one when running /sbin/ifconfig bnep0 gives you an IP address.
The Wired Connection will disappear when you disconnect the phone, but it will reappear, still configured to DHCP, when you reconnect.
