Palm Tungsten E2 Bluetooth Personal Area Network using BlueSoleil

I have just acquired a Palm Tungsten E2, which comes with Bluetooth. My bluetooth dongle comes with BlueSoleil software. It has a Personal Area Network (PAN) service, through which you can share an internet connection (ICS).

There is a good guide which shows how to use Microsoft bluetooth drivers to do ICS in this way - see here.

However, I would like to use the BlueSoleil software. Mostly this is because my home network uses DHCP and ICS requires a fixed IP on the host computer. If I could connect through BlueSoleil I could use my home computer, my laptop at home or my laptop at work to get internet connectivity to my Tungsten.

Does anyone know if it can be done? The BlueSoleil FAQ indicates it might be possible in the next version.

This looks promising: PalmZone Reading it now. :)
