  What our customer says:  

I'd been struggling for months to get my Treo 680 to connect to the internet on my Windows Vista PC via the USB cradle and the latest version of Softick PPP (3.0) is the first solution that really works. In addition its the first solution that allows me to use a bluetooth connection to Vista as well! An effective and simple to use bit of software.

You need to create Bluetooth network profile in order to access local area network or Internet. To create this profile, launch Prefs application from Palm Launcher and follow these steps:

Please note that the following screenshots are actual for Tungsten-T model, another models may have slighly different control panel interface.

1. At first you need to create Bluetooth connection. Choose "Connection" page from "Communication" group.



2. The connection profile list will appear.



Tap the button "New" to create a new connection.

3. Name your new connection ("BT Connection" in our example), set connection method to Bluetooth, select target device (desktop PC) and tap "Details" button. You may need to pair your Palm with desktop computer if you haven't done it yet. Refer to the Palm documentation on Bluetooth device pairing.



4. Set connection speed on 115200 bps and activate Flow Control.



Tap "OK" to return to connection properties, tap "OK" to save new connection, tap "Done" to return to the Prefs.

5. Now we will create a new network profile for a new Bluetooth connection. Select the "Network" page from the "Communication" group in Prefs.

Select your newly created Bluetooth connection, clear User Name and Pasword fields and tap "Connect" to establish PPP connection to your desktop PC.
