We reported about how the Windows XP bluetooth stack does not support the integrated Internet Connection Sharing(ICS) when it is sitting on the “server” side:
However, I now installed BlueSoleil on the server side of the game, and banished the Windows XP SP2 stack onto the notebook. And alas, the internet connection sharing now works very well. In fact, these lines are written in a garden in Vomp, Tyrol – with just a bluetooth connection…
So, when you want to use ICS over a bluetooth connection, forget using the Windows XP SP2 bluetooth stack. And BTW; you can install another stack over the existing one easily!
