I have two Macs, one of which is connected to the Internet via WiFi. I need the other Mac to use the Internet as well. It doesn't work via the Ethernet cable (probably because of the bad cable; I cannot get another one here), so I want to do it Bluetooth. I have set up Bluetooth sharing on the donor Mac no problem:

It seems that the recipient Mac doesn't have an option to reuse the donor connection - it can only browse to the public folder. Any ideas?

Turned out, we were missing a setting to use a "serial port" Bluetooth-PDA-sync:

Missing setting

Strangely enough, this setting worked once but we couldn't get it to work since then :-(
