cannot access iBlue 747 A+ on Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard

I have installed various versions of BT747 on a Mac OS 10.6.  Whether accessing my iBlue 747 A+ via Bluetooth or USB,  I constantly get an error that the port is not found.  the /dev ports do exist, and other programs (HoudahGPS) can see both USB and Bluetooth ports so I know that the device can connect.  I have tried several versions of BT747 to no avail.

Any ideas?

Apple's Snow Leopard and BT747

Apple's MacOS X 10.6 version that goes under the codename "Snow Leopard" is no longer compatible with the official stable driver for the serial link (RXTX).

The more recent "Beta version" of RXTX has to be referenced and that version is RXTX 2.2Pre.

For the moment, the easiest way to get BT747 working on Snow Leopard is to use the webstart version that is labeled as "BT747 Latest using Rxtx 2.2pre".
