RHEL4 Network Access via Bluetooth Cell Phone

I worked several hours on using my Bluetooth enabled cell phone as a modem for roaming internet access. Alas, it was not to be. I was able to successfully get my Palm to connect, but could not get the laptop to work.

The problem was RHEL4's inability to respond to a PIN request from the phone. Under Fedora, there is a PIN Helper Daemon to handle pairing. It is not included with RHEL.

Oh, well. Maybe I'll try again in RHEL 5.
