I just bought a N800 and would like to get online using a dun-connection from
my N800 to my linux-computer which acts as a dun-server. I would prefer pan
(which I already had setup), but that isn't available yet seemingly.

What works? The N800 can see my dun-server and connect. The dun-server than

Thank you and greetings,


P.S.: This deserves more attention than in a P.S.-sectin, but I would like to
say that I really enjoyed the N800 uptill now! I was impressed how easy it
was link it to my phone for a connection to the internet using gprs. Simple
and quick.
