I did this some time ago.  I used a version of Zterm (I think it’s ztppc.exe, can’t remember where I got it)  on my IPAQ, using bluetooth as a serial port.  I haven’t tried with Mac, though.  I’d give more details, but my IPAQ is no longer with me, so I can’t check what the settings were or anything.  It was sweet, though…I was able to get the full console, just as if I was connected by direct serial.

How can you get it over BT? Is it possible on MacOSX? I am using ZTerm to connect gumstix over serial port; I wonder how to get console over BT.

Thanks,
Deniz

can get it over Bluetooth, but the units we have aren't BT.

Thanks!

It should be pretty easy to have something which is normally mounted
loopback on the 'stix where it reads/writes data you want to pass
over to windows, then when USB insertion is detected (iirc it
triggers a udev event), you unmount the loopback on the gumstix
(after closing any open files and whatnot), then use the /sys
interface to the file_storage gadget to tell it to export the thing
which was just unmounted.  Windows will then mount it on its side,
and execute the autorun.bat which is on there.  When the USB removal
event is detected, you reverse the process -- tell /sys to unexport
the device, then re-mount it loopback and re-open your files on the
gumstix side.
