Hello Nokia team,
when developing and testing applications that use internet connection it is very useful if a cheap connection can be used instead of air access by GPRS/UMTS and so on.
To use the internet connection of a PC with access to this PC by the bluetooth interface a software called GnuBox has been written. Unfortunately some applications don't have access to the GnuBox Access Point.
There is an Opera webbrowser for mobile phones that works fine via this internet connection by a PC.
What we are doing now is developing SIP applications. And the SIP Plugin from NOKIA does NOT work with this Access Point. There are some hints that after setting up the bluetooth connection to the PC in the GnuBox the Access Point "Bt" vanishes from the list of access points because it has become an internal profile.
I don't know exactly what that means but I cannot see a reason when Opera can use it why SIP can't.
It would be a very, very, very big advantage if Nokia could enable this. (There are some other aspects, i.e. it is not possible to reach a test server in our company's intranet from the internet.)
We are using the Nokia_SIP_Plug-in_4.0_for_Series_60_CW.zip.
The instructions for setting up the GnuBox on Nokia N70 and a discussion containing the additional hints can be found here:
