Still having problems with connecting Huawei Modem under Mac OX X


after trying several phones without success i bought a brand new O2 surf stick (here in germany). The hardware of the stick is made by Huawei - so it's actually a huawei modem...


But it won't work for me under MAC OS X 10.6.6. With the supplied software/driver sending and receiving of sms work fine. But in FrontlineSMS I can't even find the device by trying to connect it manually. No entry under <port>...


I tried it without running the O2-Software in the background - as you proposed it in another (similar) thread here.

Tried it without any connections - only put it in the usb port. Tried it with connecting it via MACOS X network option - that works for the OS - but in FrontlineSMS same result ... no device is visible there.


What else can I do? I'm quite desperate at this point, because setup sending option by using intelliSMS wasn't a problem ... but the (much more important) receiving part is a mystery.


I'm thankful for every hint and advice.
