Howto: configure a Psion Series 5 for internet access with a Nokia 6610 (GPRS)

This took ages to figure out, and plenty of experimenting with different settings, so hopefully this might save someone else the hastle of having to spend half a day to get their Psion 5 (not MX) connected to the net with a Nokia 6610.  I would say it would work with similar settings on other GPRS phones.

The internet settings are for the O2 network in Ireland and will need adjustments for a different network.

  1. install Psion Series 5 Message Suite version 1.52.
  2. Create a new modem called nokia 6610:
     speed 57600
     connection infrared
     fax class auto,
     init string: ATZ
     flow control: hardware (RTS/CTS)
  3. Create new Internet Service called GPRS with the following settings.
     
     connection type: dialup
     uncheck smart dialing
     standard dial-up number: *99#
     manual login unchecked
     username gprs 
     password gprs
     addresses: get IP from server. get dns address from server unchecked.
     primary dns address: 62.40.32.33
     secondary dns address: 62.40.32.34
     login: use login script checked. default 8 bit no partity 1 stop bit,
     delete all content of login script text box, leave blank.
     advanced: enable PPP extensions checked. allow plain text authentication checked.  
  4. On the psion, set Remote Link to Infrared 57600.
  5. Get the GPRS settings for your phone from your network. O2 will send those details to your phone if you request it from http://www1.o2.ie/CM/getcontent/0,1177,txt_html_OTA_Home,00.html. Save these details to your phone.
  6. Activate Infrared on the phone. Connectivity > Infrared.
  7. Point the Infrared port of the phone thin black band on top of phone) to the Infrared port on the psion (1cm band on back of psion) a few inches away.
