I have a W2K Pro PC with Looknstop fw on it, bluetooth adapter BT007., and a laptop HP nc8000, bluetooth integrated (also a widcomm device)., W2k Pro, Sygate security FW.

I can pair the two devices, run the Network access (becomes green). but I can't browse in any way. Status of connection shows on each PC that octets are send, but never received. Status of the Network access show that there is an excellent connection and that some data is received !!

I don't know how to handle this. Can't change the Sygate FW (my company's...) but I used to have ICS working with this laptop without pb. Of course I had a look the BT guides of this excellent site...made one or two changes, but nothing made it.

I tried without the LooknStop FW, same symptoms. I have applied the patch LNS present on their site for NAV compliancy.

Could someone help ?

From the client PC are you able to PING by name or IP address?

If you can PING by IP address and not by name, try entering your ISP DNS addresses on the Bluetooth network adapter configuration on the server side.

It doesn't seem to work.

One thing I forgot to say is that I couldn't set the IP address of the server to, because whenever I do this, I can't reach the internet anymore from the server..

As I'm not a complete IT expert, let me explain you deeper the full story.
As I told you I used to have ICS working without pb, with IP DNS address on the server with the same ISP... The full story is that I was sharing Internet with the very same PC with W2KPro server installed (and with DNS address). I was not using the server features because i don't know how, but perhaps one of these features was indeed being used (which could justify the DNS addressing was OK)...

I installed W2K Pro on another hard drive on the same PC (same dongle, same ISP.... OS is different), and that's where I have pb.
My server PC is called "Bideul Pro" and I tried to ping :
Ping Bideul Pro
Ping xxx.XxX.XXX.XXX where XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX. is the network Ip address given by the ISP. No success.
