Is there a guide for setting PDA to work as bluetooth gprs modem for my notebook?

I have installed the BT modem, but I can not connect...

Thanks! I tried both guides but it did not help. When trying to connect, I am getting the error nr. 633.

BT modem (PDA) is on COM 7 (the same as client application port in Widcomm software). PDA has incomming port COM7, too.

Nearly feel like to give it up...

I was in the exact same spot last week and getting ready to bag it.  Guides didn't help, nothing helped and was going crazy. I tried every possible combination of ports. Often got that same error 633.  I finally got it to go when I tried PdaNet for the 20th time and under settings instructed it to "Connect by BT" before I even tried ActiveSync.  Simply connected the serial port through the BT on my Dell laptop and activated PdaNet.  Worked.  Assuming I was dreaming I turned everything off and re-tried it and it works to this day.  Having said that I tried to do the same on my son's laptop and haven't yet been able to get it to go.  I am in the process of looking at all the assigned ports etc to see what I did on mine that I haven't done yet on my sons.  Hope you get it to work 8)
