Patch for Palm Tungsten T LAN access via Bluetooth is out now
Posted on 9-May-2003 08:06 | Tags Filed under: News



In summary, connecting a Palm to a Bluetooth LAN is exactly like a Pocket PC: configure ICS on the desktop/laptop, pair the devices, connect, using a special script.

No need for any special program, although if you don't have LAN on your Bluetooth software (3COM) you can use MochaPPP for this connection.

Users reported Palm T|T resets when trying this procedure. Palm just released a patch that solves this and a few other problems:

  • Digitizer issues affecting the top 5mm of the Tungsten T display not responding correctly or at all. This is typically detected when using pull down menus or applications that utilize this part of the display.
  • Audio playback issues, associated with playing audio files (such as MP3 or WAV), which affect sound output quality. Enhancements to the Palm Sound Manager included with this update also enable the playback of audio files in the background with some applications.
  • Issues connecting to the Internet or email via a Bluetooth dongle attached to a PC.
  • Launcher issues when attempting to access the App menu. The error message "LauncherMain.c, Line:9128, could not complete the operation because the system is out of dynamic memory" is reported on devices with more than 345 files in system memory.

    Note: This patch is intended for the Palm Tungsten T and is not meant for use with any other handhelds. This patch incorporates and replaces the following previously released patches for Palm Tungsten T: PalmDigitizerUpdate.prc and PalmAudioUpdate.prc.

    PS. The script for Palm Bluetooth LAN connection is this:

  • create a new connection. Do not enter a number to dial, but make sure you
  • create a script to send CLIENT, and wait for CLIENTSERVER.
