Bluetooth Dialup Connection


Ok, quick overview.

Me I am a long time MS user/developer. Linux has allways intreaged me. I played around with a couple of distro's over the years. I recently tried suse 9.3 and fell in love.

A problem that I have however....

I cant seem to get suse to recognize/install my cellphone as 'n modem workn through bluetooth. My nifty little bluetooth manager connects to my phone propperly and I can brows through OBEX.

Using kinternet I can create dialup connections, but I can only specify devices that are installed as modems (in Yast/hardware/Modems).

How do I install a default modem that points to my cellphone?

Thanks in advance for anyone that can help. Cheers!

Fade-Dude , Follow the Steps written below ONE BY ONE CAREFULLy........


1. Just plugin " Bluetooth Dongle into USB Port "

2. Turn your Cell Phone's Bluetooth on.

3. Open the file ' .etc.wvdial.conf ' in any Text Editor such as 'gedit' or 'kwrite' . and replace all the line with the following lines.

[Modem0]
Modem = /dev/rfcomm0
Baud = 57600
SetVolume = 0
Dial Command = ATDT
Init1 = ATZ
Init3 = ATM0
FlowControl = None
[Dialer GPRS]
Username = user
Password = user
Phone = ATD*99***3#
Stupid Mode = 1
Inherits = Modem0


4. now, open file /etc/ppp/options in text editor in the same way

and put # before all the lines starts with word lcp.

it should be 4 or 5 lines. Remember this


5. now , open terminal and run the following commands as the following order....

a.) [roo@localhost]#hcitool scan

This command will show the name of your call phone and one Six pairs digit address. COPY THIS ADDRESS.

b.) [roo@localhost]# sdptool search DUN

This commmand will show you that on which RFCOMM Channel you dial up networking is available in your cell phone.

c.) rfcomm bind 0 <address of cell phone you copied above> <rfcomm channel of dial up networking which is shown by b.) command>

6. After binding, just run ' kppp ' and make a dial up connection as we do in the case of ordinary modem.

just choose Modem Port as /dev/rfcomm0

and enter the phone no. exactly the same you entered in the /etc/wvdial.conf file.

NOTE : MY INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER'S NO IS *99***1# and *99***3#. You replace this no with your ISP's on both places.

7. After creating a dial up connection in ' kppp ' just press connect button.

8. As you Press Connect Button, on your cell phone you will be asked to enter a particular digit which is for bonding between your computer system and cell phone.

Enter the same digits here which you have in ' Yast ' - > Hardware - > ' Bluetooth ' configuration. Check it

9. As you enter the digit , ' kppp ' pop up shows the following in exact order...................


a. ) Modem Ready

b.) Initializing Modem

c. ) Dialing *99***1#

d. ) Authenticalting....

e.) Network Established or some thing like that.


10. Last but not least...........PLEASE BACK UP OF /etc/wvdial.conf & /etc/ppp/options


Please if this works for you then please SAY THANKS ATLEASET.

I am waiting for a good news from your side .

Regards.

No need to put extra string any where. Just make sure that all the value fields are filled with theie respective values in

kppp's > Configure > Modems > Modem > Modem Commands >............


, if not the write me down back.........

please explain your problem in more detail.

I am not AS good in english as you are. so please write simple english. I request you.

LET ME TELL YOU THAT, I HAVE BEEN USING GPRS ON MY SONY ERICSSON P - 800 , SINCE I HAD ' SUSE 9.2 ' . IN SUSE 9.3 IT BECAME SO EASY , YOU MUST BE MAKING A LITTLE MISTAKE SOMEWHERE , I GURANTEE YOU , THAT SOON YOU GET IT.

REGARDS..........
