Ok I did that, enabled Serial to PC on palm, and connected. But my palm
still does not get any data from the pc it is connected to, and no data
from the network.

I have used the ip (ip of the machine palm is connected to)
and for the palm ip.

They get connected, and the proxyarp interface is set, but nothing
happens than.. I tried to finger username@ but it failed with
and error that it could not open the tcp port. 

I don't understand why it wouldn't work.

I hope someone can help me work this out.

Thank you in advance!
