Windows XP SP2, bluetooth and a Tungsten T3

Microsoft added a Bluetooth Stack to its Windows XP in the Service Pack 2. Most users beleive that this stack is unsuitable for connecting a PalmOS device to the internet and sending/receiving files-I now know that this is wrong for the serial method.
First of all, you have to dock your bluetooth dongle(I have an EPOX BT-DG02) to the Windows XP machine. If you have service Pack 2 installed, tbhe BT stack will automatiocvally trap your dongle and the Bluetooth icon will become available in the prefs(german Windows XP here, so no screenshots).
First of all, you will have to authenticate your PalmOS handheld. This procedure is simple if you sat your PalmOS's handheld's radio to on, and make it discoverable. Initiate the pairing process on the PC using the Bluetooth icon in the control panel. Enter a master key, enter the same key on the handheld, check the Add to trusted Devices checkbox. Thats all, your handheld is now paired with the Windows XP box.
In order to send a file to the Palm OS handheld, just right-click it and chose send to->bluetoth device. Use the Search Button to select a device, and click next to start sending. This dialog will appear once for every file that you send....
Tomnowwor, TamsPalm will explain how to receive a file/access the internet using your Bluetooth dongle!

Hi Papageoff,

Note that the list of Bluetooth dongles supported by XP SP2 is very small. For my "noname" dongle, I had to use an updated version of Widcomm Bluetooth software.

While I was able to connect to the Net from my T3 with XP SP1, I can't with SP2 as it seems connection sharing doesn't work anymore the way it used to be.
