View Full Version : Connecting two ipaqs to each other

10-04-2003, 07:37 AM
My cousin and I, just bought two ipaqs 1945 this week. Tonight we wanted to try their bluetoth capabilitiesand although we could send and receive files it was a bit of a hassle.

I was surprised how many dialogs you have to go through. Were can i get a simple guide on getting two ipaqs connected?

If I get a USB dongle, can we both used the internet through it at the same time and still be able to share files between the two devices?


I am old with PPCs new with Bluetooth :lol:

I've connected 2 Axims with 802.11b - BT should be similar.

-Set up a peer to peer network on both BT managers. It's easy w/ wifi - just keep the network names the same.

-connect both units to this new network.

-find out what your IP addresses are.

-use Microsoft Portrait to chat or share files.
