Hello.

I'm trying to use my phone via bluetooth as network gateway. So far i was able to connect and exchange data files but no luck configuring network. There are a lot of howtos describing how to do this but none of them got me running. I was not able to create a bnep0 interface. I do not have a pand daemon. Could someone please push me in the right direction? Thanks.

cheers
t.

bnep0: You need to build a kernel with this device support in it, PAN networking.

pand should be part of bluez4 - what bluez are you using? Not sure if they ported to bluez5 or not.

Note: If you're using Networkmanager with bluez5, PAN should work 'out of the box', or at least I think it's fixed now.

I have tested similar setup recently using

eix -Iv blue
net-wireless/blueman
Installed versions: Version: 1.23-r2
net-wireless/bluez
Installed versions: Version: 4.101-r9

All I had to do whas click on my phone in blueman-applet and connect to Network Access Point service.
Whatever kernel modules are needed, were included in default config provided with genkernel (Save for ath3k I think. Atheros drivers always have to be enabled manually :roll: )

As a side note, it would be much easier to find out what's wrong if you descried what you're doing.

You're right. I was just frustrated at the moment i posted. :-) I think i have to downgrade to bluez4 and try again. Thanks to both of you so far.
