I forget how to pair devices, so this article is woefully lacking!!!


I'm no expert, but this page is to help people who want to setup a TCP connection from a Palm Pilot or other bluetooth device to their ArchLinux box. This is useful for browsing the Internet and/or performing a Hotsync operation.

I have no idea what really works, but this system is working for me right now!

Hardware:

       bluetooth dongle
       Palm T5

Packages Installed:

       bluez-utils
       bluez-libs

Modules Loaded:

       hci_usb
       rfcomm
       l2cap
       sco

Daemons Running:

       dbus
       hcid
       sdpd

Devices Loaded:

       hci0 (bring it up with hciconfig hci0 up)

Extra Settings Needed:

       # echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

PPP Settings:

 $ cat /etc/ppp/peers/palm
 noauth          # we require no authentication
 local           # local connection
 asyncmap 0      # charmap
 idle 1000       # disconnection after 1000 idle seconds
 noipx           # disable novell ipx
 passive         # the client (palm) initiates the connection
 silent          # no info needed
 192.168.10.191:192.168.10.192  # Server:client ip address
 ms-dns 192.168.10.191

Command to run to start the dial-up networking server:

 # dund --nodetach --listen --persist --msdun call palm

Command to run to start the dial-up networking server in daemon mode

 # dund --listen --persist --msdun call palm
