I want this working on my -current laptop but it freezes
during all this and has to be rebooted so I am using on a
5.4-RELEASE machine. If it matters, I am using an IOgear
bluetooth dongle. dmesg says:
ubt0: Broadcom CCBT2035BDGP23-1, rev 1.10/0.01, addr 3
> # rfcomm_sppd -a mytreo -c 1 -t /dev/ttyp1

Ah, this is a useful hint!
Anyway, nothing comes back in cu.
So I tried a few more things such as re-pairing and
reconnecting with rfcomm_pppd. The first two times
rfcomm_pppd couldn't connect but on the third try treo
crashed and rebooted! And now it WORKS!
So I guess I had to reboot treo.... But it sure would be
nice to know what exactly went wrong.... Ah well.
Thanks for your help!
