Hi Thomas,

I had an idea. I was reading on the NTLK archives that someone got a PPP
server to work over bluetooth, their Newton could get an IP and browse the
web from a shared bluetooth connection from a Mac OS X computer. In theory,
since the computer is acting as the server with its own IP, NewtSync SHOULD
work over TCP/Bluetooth to the Newton. If you want to experiment, because I
lack the hardware necessary, I can point you to the directions I found on
how to make the bluetooth internet connection and you can plug in the IPs
into NewtSync and see if it works. If it does it would make the Newton much
more useful :)
