I downloaded the tether software to blackberry and windows 2000 laptop and connected fine.

The thing i dont understand is that sometimes connection to servers using VPN does not work.
When i reboot PC or blacbeerry a few time and keep trying it happens.

Any idea what might be causing this?

Is there a reboot function on blackberrys?

Sometimes i notices the tether on blackberry would ask me if i want to open some ports for UDP and sometimes it does not. I am just not sure how it works.

This is also a 1 week trial. is there a diff betweeen this and the full blown software.

Is there any other good software i can try for windows 2300 and blackberry bold

Hi Sam,

              I guess you are using EasyTether, The s/w will continue to work after your trial, Only difference would be that it wont allow you to open any secured sites such as gmail or banking sites.

>> Is there a reboot function on blackberrys?
    Press Ctrl + Alt + Del  on your blackberry, This combination will reboot it.

yes, i use Easy tether.

The software seems to work accessing VPN sites sometimes. But if i disconnect many times i cant reconnect.

is this limitation of the software? is there another software that provides access to secure site or VPN

They have mentioned in their FAQ that it works on Windows 2000. I posted the link in my last post.
Anyway you can go for TetherBerry:

easyTether has a good support, so does PDAnet and TetherBerry only if you have a full version of app
