How to access webpages on the local webserver of a bluetooth access point (blue2net) without GPRS connection on Pocket PC (=T mobile vario MDA)? I guess some new kind of network profile has to be made. If so, how to do that and prevent that Pocket PC's internet explorer or Opera mini chooses for the default GPRS connection?

Would there be a possibility like this to do the same thing from a normal mobile phone's (e.g. Nokia 6600) internet browser or a build in brower of a MIDlet? E.g. instead of typing in the address field to use something like: btspp://008012973FAE:5;master=true"??

Thanks in advance for your help

Welcome to Geekzone. Your device must be able to join a Bluetooth network using one of the two profiles (LAP or PAN). At this moment none of the Windows Mobile 5.0 devices have these profiles on their Bluetooth stack.

Once you join a Bluetooth network like this you are just another computer in the network and can use the standard protocols and services (http, ftp, imap, pop, etc), with no need to define another one.
