    I'm trying to setup my MacBook to allow internet connections to devices via Bluetooth PAN. In other words, getting a Palm Centro/Motorola Q9h to access the internet via the mac's internet connection over Bluetooth PAN.

    I've enabled Internet sharing correctly, checked all the relevant boxes.

    When the device connects to the Macbook, the Bluetooth PAN connection shows 'active', but it seems that the Macbook is not assigning an IP address, nor routing the packets.

    Has anyone had any success with this?

    As a general rule, if you manage to connect your phone via ActiveSync, you should be able to access the internet.

    To connect your Windows Mobile phone to Mac via Bluetooth, use this: http://www.markspace.com/products/windowsmobile/mac/windows-mobile-sync-features-list.html
    Also, read this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=369824

    To connect via USB, read this: http://www.windowsmobilecool.com/2008/09/howto-sync-windows-mobile-device-mac/

    You may have to got to Start -> ActiveSync on your phone and use "Connect via Bluetooth", if only following the instructions on SyncMate doesn't work.
