sharing internet with bluetooth-enabled device

I have ubutnu workstation connected to internet via PPP-link (ppp0 interface in routing table). I want to share internet with bluetooth-enabled PDA.
I've configured PAN connection between workstation and PDA so they are in network (bnep0 interface in routing table). They have static ip-addresses both and I can ping workstation from PDA.

I don't know what to do to share internet connection with PDA (I've heard there are options: configure masquerading or configure routing). Please guide what to do.

My routing table:
Kernel IP routeing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface   *      UH    0      0        0 eth0 *      UH    0      0        0 ppp0       *        U     0      0        0 eth0
link-local      *          U     1000   0        0 eth0        *            U     0      0        0 bnep0
default         *              U     0      0        0 ppp0
My network interfaces:
bnep0     Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:E0:98:D1:A7:E0  
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:80:48:22:B2:21  
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
lo        Link encap:Local Loopback  
ppp0      Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol  
          inet addr:  P-t-P:  Mask:


bluetooth, ppp
