    is it possible to link the treo 600 via the infrared to my Powerbook G4 so that it acts as a modem receiving email into entoyrage on my Mac?

    I can't answer your specific question about the Mac, but I use PDA Net from junefabrics.com with a sync cable to make my Treo 600 create an internet connection. This is an incredibly cool function, and I use it extensively when I travel. No more $10 per day internet access charges at the Sheraton; I can surf the web from airport lounges from free, etc....
    I use a Windows laptop. Let's hope someone jumps in with an answer for the Mac.

    thanks

    thanks very much indeed. The key thing is that at least this tells me i'm not missing something obvious. I just couldn't understand why I couldn't find info about this capability in the manuals! I'll follow up this software and see if they have a Mac version!

    PDANet

    I my only problem with PDANet is that I can not download it from my treo 600. You got to download it to your PC and then to Treo....but if I had internet on my PC I wouldn't need my treo as a modem....anything else I can do to use my internet from treo to my PC?

    Perhaps you could

    a) Have a friend download it.
    b) Ask the software company to send you a disk.

    Cheers,
    Reddy

    Here are some instructions, but I don't know if they work.
