I've tried a few times to get the Treos recognized in the OS,
if your running a fairly new version it should be in there. It'll
show up on ucom0 .
When I ran USB, I put in /etc/ppp/pp.conf :
set phone "#777"
set dial "ABORT BUSY ABORT NO\\sCARRIER TIMEOUT 5 \
\"\" AT OK-AT-OK ATZ OK AT\$QCMDR=3 OK AT\$QCQNC=0 OK \\dATDT\\T TIM
EOUT 40 CONNECT"
set authname 9175555505 at vzw3g.com
set authkey vzw
set device /dev/ucom0
set speed 230400
add default HISADDR
/usr/sbin/ppp -ddial vzwenusb
I've also done it with bluetooth.
In /etc/rc.local :
/etc/rc.bluetooth start ubt0
/usr/local/bin/sdptool add DUN
/usr/sbin/rfcomm_pppd -s -C 1 -l rfcomm-server
/sbin/ipnat -f /usr/local/etc/rfcomm_ppd.nat.conf
(I think there was something special about the sdptool I
used, it was from sdp-1.5, maybe even with a modification from
one of the list people...)
In /etc/ppp/ppp.conf :
set timeout 0
set lqrperiod 60
set ifaddr 10.0.0.1 10.0.0.2 255.255.255.0
# Do not use PPP authentication. Assume that
# Bluetooth connection was authenticated already

map wi0 10.0.0.2/32 -> 0/32 portmap tcp/udp auto
map wi0 10.0.0.2/32 -> 0/32
You'll need to change the interface as appropriate.
