    I wrote a comphensive guide to using an upgraded Treo 650 with Bluetooth DUN and a Linux computer.

    The guide has three parts. An introduction, treo specific config, and Linux config.

    Enjoy.

    Thank you so much for this link. I have just started working on DUN with my SUSE 9.3 laptop. I rate myself as an intermediate linux user, and guides such as this make things so much easier.
    Thanks again,
    Zane

    Thanks. Just upgraded to FC4 (on a T42p, by the way) and ran into a few issues in following your instructions. The graphical version of system-config-securitylevel (not system-config-security-level) crashes even when initiated from a non-root user. Can you post what the config file (/etc/sysconfig/system-config-securitylevel, I'm guessing) is supposed to look like?

    I got things to work but I couldn't configure hcid (had to use /etc/bluetooth/pin to set the pin). I also had to use Software Flow control (XON/XOFF) for the modem settings.

    Interesting. In our office we have five instructors with Treo 650s who have used the procedure in the guide to get it running.

    There is more than one way to do the PIN. I found using the method you used to be unreliable. Often the Treo 650 would prompt for the PIN number even though I had previously paired it. Using the method in the guide I found was rock solid.

    All five guys here are using hardware flow control without any troubles.You should be able to as well.

    Yeah, this is what we need more of. I'll have to look into this Linux business.

    I managed to get everything configured on my SUSE 9.3 laptop, but I get the following errors:

    SuSE Meta pppd (smpppd-ifcfg), Version 1.58 on linux.
    Status is: disconnected
    trying to connect to smpppd
    connect to smpppd
    Status is: disconnected

    Status is: disconnected
    pppd[0] died: Connect script failed (exit code 8)

    I know that the bluetooth connection is working.
    Can someone guide me on what to do next?

    Hmm...I followed the instructions on your site, however I can't make a connection. The local bluetooth device is properly configured and paired with the Treo 650, so the problem must be with the modem settings correct? I am using Cingular. Here is the output of my tail -f

    At this point, my Treo pops up this message.

    Software: Treo650-1.20-LAP
    Does anyone have any ideas?

    EDIT
    Sorry for digging up a year old thread!
