    Is it possible to dial-in to a modem on a pc running some sort of proxy or NAT server and browse the Internet that way using a Treo?

    Would simply a RAS(dial-up networking) server do? If so, how would that work?

    My situation is I have a cable modem ISP(Cox) and I would like to access the Internet thru my Treo without getting a 2nd ISP. If I could set the phone modem on my pc to answer, can I then connect to a server on it and browse the net using my cable access?

    You might try this from iReady.

    Interesting, they don't seem to be actually selling anything, just telling you how to set up a dial-up PPP server. I think though that you can ignore the part about installing a null modem.

    Hope this helps, regards.

    From what I have been finding out on the net, this project will definitely require a RAS server("dial-up networking") to be running plus I think it will require a proxy/NAT server to fetch the web page and *route it* to the palm which issued the request.

    This tidbit from the link posted above, should come in handy:

    "If your device is a webserver, launch an IE or Navigator web browser. Type and press return ( is the default IP address that Windows assigns to the PPP(dial-up server) client). "


    I will post more info as I find it. Stay Tuned!
    I'm sure I won't be the only person asking this question now that palm phones are being sold.
