rfcomm unable to bind /dev/rfcomm0


I am using debian lenny stable,

i was trying to connect to internet via bluetooth modem of my mobile phone.

i connect to bluetooth via "bluez" tools and the wvdial for the connection,

i have configured /etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.conf file to get:

Quote:
rfcomm0 {
bind yes;
device 00:121:B6:XX:XX;
channel 1;
comment "Dial-up Networking";
}

and then the output of my terminal is like this:

Quote:
debian:/media/system/Downloads# rfcomm bind all
syntax error line 1
debian:/media/system/Downloads# rfcomm bind /dev/rfcomm0
syntax error line 1
Can't find a config entry for rfcomm0
debian:/media/system/Downloads#

someone please help me; where i am getting wrong!!

I think you have to discover available services on your mobile phone, and then connect to appropriate.
"Dial-up Networking" - will do your phone.
