How-to tether Windows Mobile to Ubuntu

Another random site I found the other day had this little tip on tethering your Windows Mobile phone to Ubuntu.
Seems pretty straight forward. I haven’t tried it yet but I don’t think it would be too complicated.
apt-get install subversion
svn co https://synce.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/synce/trunk/usb-rndis-lite
sudo make install
Then you just need to go to internet sharing on your phone and plug it in. Whenever I have a chance to give it a try I will let you know if it works for me.
If you get a chance to try it leave me a comment and let me know.
THIS WORKS FLAWLESSY, THANK YOU!!!!!
I have a Palm 800w with Sprint service. I had no issues getting usb-rndis-lite built and installed. When I try Internet Sharing on the phone it shows the phone attempting to dial #777, but it doesn’t connect. The the popup window that shows it is dialing appears and disappears pretty quickly over about 3 times then stops trying. Any ideas.
The only tip I can think of off the top of my head is to make sure on your phone the Network Connection is Data Network Connect and not Phone as Modem.
Works with HTC Universal on WM6.1 and Ubuntu 9.04. Thanks.
Worked first try on HTC “Tilt” on WM6.5 and Ubuntu 9.04.
for Von, try browsing to a web page before connecting the internet sharing. That’s what I have to do
Hey Von. You have to hack the OS in the phone. Sprint has it set up to force certain types of connection and prevent tethering. I don’t know how to do it on the palm, but that’s the same problem the touch pro had when tethering until I performed some registry edits.
Mine isn’t working for a different reason. My internet Sharing app on my phone says “Status: Check USB Cable connection”
