This page is a draft.

Networking the N800 using bluetooth.

Two approaches: PAN (like an AP and a proper network) or DUN (dial-up style, ugly).

DUN is integrated into the official maemo networking stuffs, PAN isn't.

Dun approach

maemo wiki instructions

  • http://maemo.org/community/wiki/howto-bluetoothnetworking-dun-ppp/

I find these instructions fairly opaque for someone with no bluetooth experience. I'd like to distill them a bit, explain a bit more, and also work out how this might be simplified in Debian.

Some of the scripts/config could perhaps be more Debian-ized.

following the above (except the GPRS bit: I get a choice of CDMA or ...) I get the following in daemon.log

Apr 2 12:06:23 ANKH hcid[25811]: link_key_request (sba=11:11:11:11:11:11, dba=00:19:4F:A5:10:38) Apr 2 12:06:23 ANKH hcid[25811]: link_key_notify (sba=11:11:11:11:11:11, dba=00:19:4F:A5:10:38) Apr 2 12:06:23 ANKH dund[25949]: New connection from 00:19:4F:A5:10:38

and "connection failed to phone ankh-0. Try again?" on the n800.

Pan approach

  • http://maemo.org/community/wiki/HOWTO-BluetoothNetworking/ - this method describes setting up PAN in the console underneath maemo then setting up a "dummy" access point to convince the maemo stuff that you have a network connection. URGH.

  • https://garage.maemo.org/projects/maemo-pan - a much cleaner solution, if it works: integrate PAN support into maemo.
