Hmmm, with my ipaq, it's just a case of plugging it into the cable or cradle, and I have instant access through Activesync. Palms are a different kettle of fish. There's a utility available (though the name and url escapes me now
) that allows you to make a ppp connection to your pc from the palm in it's cradle. I tried it with my clie ages ago, but never got it working to my satisfaction.
Sorry I can't help you more. If I can find the url for the site with the software, I'll post it here.
