Bluetooth PAN Network

I have 2 PCs running Linux(Mandriva Limited Edition 2005 and SUSE 9.2) and also 2 USB Bluetooth Dongles. I used the following commands to establish a connection between them:

modprobe bnep0 (on both nodes)
pand --listen --role GN (on the GN side)
pand --listen --role PANU (on the PANU side)

pand --connect <BtAddress of the GN>

After the establishment of the connection, I try to give IP addresses to the nodes:

ifconfig bnep0 (GN)
ifconfig bnep0 (PANU)

But after all that I can't ping neither of them. I can't understand where exactly is the problem.

Thanks in advance!

OK OK I found the solution!! It seems that eth0 conflicted with the bnep0 and so I disabled it and everything is ok now!
