    Default [HOWTO] Internet in Linux via Mobile GPRS (Data Cable/Bluetooth))

    Internet via Mobile GPRS & Bluetooth in Opensuse 10.2 (KDE)

    1.Connect ur mobile to ur PC with kbluetoothd (BT obex server) using and pair it...
    2.open KONSOLE and login as root (su)
    3.Type
    Code:
    # sdptool search DUN
    if it detects any DUN services than it means that ur fone is enabled to be connected thru BT DUN..
    4.Type
    Code:
    # hcitool scan
    This ll give u the device id of ur fone...
    5.now bind the Device ID of ur fone wit the rfcomm device using
    Code:
    # rfcomm bind 0 <Device id of ur fone> 1
    6.If u get any error in the above command or u dont hav a device rfcomm0 then u need to create one by
    Code:
    #mknod /dev/rfcomm0 c 216 0
    7.next u need to edit ur /etc/wvdial.conf file to enter ur BT modem settings
    Code:
    # nano -w  /etc/wvdial.conf
    Edit ur Wvdial and copy the following in it...
    Code:
    [Modem0]
    Modem = /dev/rfcomm0
    Baud = 230400
    SetVolume = 0
    DialCommand = ATDT
    FlowControl = Hardware(CRTSCTS)
    
    [Dialer GPRS]
    Username = 1
    Password = 1
    Phone = *99***1#
    Mode = 1
    Inherits = Modem0
    
    [Dialer Defaults]
    Modem = /dev/rfcomm0
    Baud = 230400
    Init1 = ATZ
    Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
    ISDN = 0
    Modem Type = Analog Modem
    Phone = *99***1#
    Username = a
    Password = b
    8.Now run the command
    Code:
    # wvdial GPRS
    instead of GPRS u can enter whatever dialer name u hav entered...
    You should get connected.

    Method 2: For Newer distros like Ubuntu 7.10 using Bluetooth

    1> Insert your bluetooth dongle and activate bluetooth service in your mobile. And open terminal/console

    2> Discover your phone issuing following command to get your phone's MAC address
    Code:
    $ hcitool scan
    3> Discover the channel alloted for DUN via
    Code:
    $ sdptool browse <mac add.>
    4> Edit your /etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.conf file
    Code:
    $ sudo gedit /etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.conf
    and paste this substituting <value> with appropriate value
    Code:
    rfcomm0
    {
    bind yes;
    device <mac add.>;
    channel <DUN channel>;
    comment "My Phone";
    }
    5> Create your modem device
    Code:
    $ sudo rfcomm bind 0 <mac add.> <channel>
    6> Now when everything is done you need a dialer to activate Internet, we will be using wvdial
    Edit your /etc/wvdial.conf via
    Code:
    $ sudo gedit /etc/wvdial.conf
    Paste this :
    Code:
    [Modem0]
    Modem = /dev/rfcomm0
    Baud = 115200
    SetVolume = 3
    Dial Command = ATDT
    Init1 = ATZ
    Init3 = ATM1L3
    FlowControl = CRTSCTS
    
    [Dialer BT]
    Username = aa
    Password = aa
    Phone = *99***1#
    Stupid Mode = 1
    Init1 = ATZ
    Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
    Inherits = Modem0
    NOTE: Change Phone, Username, Password according to requirement. If you don't have username and password then keep it like only

    7> Activate :
    Code:
    $ sudo wvdial BT
    For deactivating press Ctrl+C

    Thanx to Anantkhaitan for posting this


    Internet via Mobile GPRS & USB Cable in Ubuntu 7.04 (GNOME) and Fedora 7(GNOME/ KDE)
    Code:
    # sudo wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf
    You shd get some output like
    Output:

    Modem configuration written to /etc/wvdial.conf.
    ttyACM0<Info>: Speed 460800; init "ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0"

    This means that it has found a MODEM.. and the basic wvdial.conf has been written..
    Now to edit wvdial.conf
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/wvdial.conf
    Enter the Dialling number, Username , Passwd etc

    My wvdial.conf :


    [Dialer Defaults]
    Init1 = ATZ
    Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
    Modem Type = USB Modem
    ISDN = 0
    New PPPD = yes
    Phone = *99#
    Modem = /dev/ttyACM0
    Username = b
    Password = a
    Baud = 460800

    Now to connect

    Code:
    sudo wvdial
    If all has gone right it shd show something like

    --> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.56

    Default Re: Internet in Linux via Mobile GPRS thru Bluetooth

    Well... I tried it in Ubuntu 6.10. I've created the rfcomm0 device as mentioned and also bound it to my phone's MAC address as specified.. The wvdial.conf was also setup as directed but when I use wvdial GPRS to connect, it says that it can't connect to the /dev/rfcomm0

    Wonder what's wrong. The phone was dicovered in the DUN search too.
    HAs any one setup Bluetooth in UBUNTU 6.10??? I guess its a lot more tougher nut to crack...

    Hmmm.. Wel I do use bluez.. And I do log into root while connecting... I came across in some forum that edgy has some issues with DUN using bluetooth. All the tutorials regarding gprs using bluetooth in ubuntu have been written for dapper and not edgy. Well, I've asked it before and ask it yet again. Has anybody configured this thing succesfuly in ubuntu 6.10 ?

    Yeah I mentioned dun using bluetooth haven't I ? I haven't tried it in dapper but as i get from some forums, gprs can be succesfuly configured in it. However, since i don't have a copy of dapper, i'm switching over to open suse 10.2. I'm sure i'l get dun via bluetooth to work with it.
    Wish me luck friends.

    Default Re: Internet in Linux via Mobile GPRS thru Bluetooth

    I have proceeded exactly as instructed but the problem i m facing is my terminal is not echoing any window to verify the pass code i have provided in my mobile.

    whenever i trigger this : wvdial GPRS

    i get a notification of 'add my computer as a device' i simply did yes and provided a passcode : 1234
    but there was no place on the computer's screen where i could verify this passcode

    Is there any way to set a default passcode

    I m using Ubuntu 6.10 and Sony Ericsson k700i phone

    default passcode is set in /etc/bluetooth/pin. Whatever you give there will be used.

    There's nothing else in the file except the pin number. No syntax, no additional words.
    Which distro are you using and what bluetooth framework have you installed? It has to be there.

    Friends i wanna share a graphical way for this.. i discovered few days back..

    1>
    # hcitool scan
    U will get ur Phone's mac address which u will need to substitute in the following steps

    2>
    # nano /etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.conf
    Paste this substituting ur mac add.
    rfcomm0 {
    # Automatically bind the device at startup
    bind no;

    # Bluetooth address of the device
    device <mac address>;

    # RFCOMM channel for the connection
    channel 1;

    # Description of the connection
    comment "Hello";
    }
    3>
    # rfcomm bind 0 <mac address> 1
    Close terminal

    4>open system-config-network
    System>Administration>Network

    5>Click 'New'>Modem Connection
    There replace "Modem Device" box with
    /dev/rfcomm0
    and click 'Forward'

    6>Specify ur provider information like phone no, Provider name, username, password etc
    and keep on clicking 'Forward' button until u click 'Apply'

    7>Highlight ur provider by a click and then click on the 'Activate' Button

    Thats all

    This part is distro specific, it will work only on red hat and fedora not on all distros that's why I told them not to use such tools in this tutorial which can make things distro specific. Those can become confusing for newbies. Anyways it is great, as those using fedora can gain from this. For your first few steps where you used CLI, I believe there's a GUI way too.

    BTW, I also saw this nice tutorial on how to sync your phone - http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_sync_mo...ne_with_Gentoo
    Well it is gentoo specific but with a bit of work arounds, can be used in other distros too. I am still trying to get it work under gentoo. Let's see how it goes.

    What was the problem in those two? I haven't used internet via gprs so no idea.
    There's obex file tranfer GUI. Don't remember it's exact name now but it's kde based so it will need kdelibs if you don't have one. I use obexftp which is CLI.

    Well try to speak once to people on #sabayon@irc.freenode.net
    They're really helpful people there and if you provide sufficient information there they might be able to help you out.
    At what step do you get that error? During
    Code:
    hcitool auth <bt address>
    Are you running the above command as root?

    EDIT

    You can set whatever number you want as password in the file /etc/bluetooth/pin

    ok, here goes..
    I got Sabayon up and running and have been facing problems pairing my phone with my pc using BT.(HCI authentication failed..... error)
    There is a problem with the pin-helper in /etc/bluetooth/ .
    You'll have to use the /usr/lib/kdebluetooth/kbluepin instead and replace the pin-helper in /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf
    Once you do it, Pairing is done w/o any problems..

    OK, actually, I faced the problem and fixed it too.
    It will work with the KDE version of Sabayon.
    1.) Log in as root.
    2.) Type:
    Code:
     nano /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf
    And look out for the entry :
    Code:
     
    # PIN helper
    pin_helper /etc/bluetooth/pin-helper;
    3.) replace
    Code:
    /etc/bluetooth/pin-helper
    with
    Code:
    /usr/lib/kdebluetooth/kbluepin
    Thats it. Then pair as usual by issuing:
    Code:
    #hcitool cc <your mac address>
    Code:
    #hcitool auth <your mac address>
    and use the pin thats stored in the file 'pin' in /etc/bluetooth/
    Cheers. I hope that solves things.
