tethering nokia to mandriva 2010: rfcomm showing problems
I'm trying to use my nokia n79 as internet modem for my laptop which has mandriva 2010 spring (free) installed. When i connect phone and computer with usb cable i can see my phone listed under 'gprs modem' but when i click 'connect' it says 'please wait' for a while then nothing happens.
I've tried using bluetooth and rfcomm to connect but the devices do not pair. Even l2ping isn't able to communicate with my phone.
When i use rfcomm with the connect command a dialog pops up on my phone requesting pin and i enter the one in my /etc/bluetooth/pin but then nothing happens and rfcomm exits saying connection refused.
I digged into system logs and all i can infer is that there is no passkey agent.
Help me out with this thanks!
