Some addresses with some info about p3nfs below.

Note: from above webpage: Start Bluetooth services: /etc/init.d/bluetooth start
Puppy does not have this file on my machine. Or /etc/rc.d/init.d/bluetooth start
http://www.koeniglich.de/p3nfs.html - has .SIS files for phone.

hi, I got myself "almost" connected with gprs, but my operator use username and password, how do I put username and password in the pppd script? I'm using puppy 3.01...


i browse around and find this...

# Username and password:
# If username and password are required by the APN, put here the username
# and put the username-password combination to the secrets file:
# /etc/ppp/pap-secrets for PAP and /etc/ppp/chap-secrets for CHAP
# authentication. See pppd man pages for details.
# Example, Radiolinja operator pap-secrets:
# "rlnet" * "internet" *
#user "rlnet"
#user "Orange"


from... http://www.bigsoft.co.uk/projects/bluetooth/

what is it mean ?
thank you

The correct way to specify username and password for ppp connections is to add this line to both /etc/ppp/pap-secrets and /etc/ppp/chap-secrets
Code:
MYUSERNAME * MYPASSWORD

Obviously, replace "MYUSERNAME" and "MYPASSWORD" with your true values, and don't forget the asterisk in the middle.

Another thing to try is wvdial, since the wvdial configuration file makes it obvious where to put the username and password. However, you would probably need to Google for all the other GPRS settings for wvdial. Do a Google search for "wvdial GPRS".

But I wouldn't assume that ppp chat scripts necessarily need to specify username/password. GPRS connections are not standard; different service providers use different login processes.
From the instructions provided by my Motorola K1 mobile phone, it appears that the phone holds data service settings, including username/passwords.
Forum members daemon and debernardis are the experts on this subject. They may have further information.

PostPosted: Mon 23 Mar 2009, 00:30    Post_subject:  File Transfers Via Bluetooth  

Hello

I'm using Puppy for a university project which also requires me to transfer files from a mobile phone via BlueTooth. I am a bit of a newbie when it comes to Linux so there was much gnashing of teeth and hair pulling to get the modules compiled and installed, but I think have them installed correctly now.

I've plugged in my bluetooth adapter but I am now clueless as to where to access the utilities to enable me to transfer files from my phone to my laptop (or vice versa). If anyone can shed any light on this or at least point me to some documentation that might help I'll be very grateful.

Thanks in advance!

The bluetooth libraries in this post are the older type which do not have D-Bus as a dependency.

The more modern type of bluetooth libraries are now here
"Bluetooth & D-Bus, January 08"

There you will find a HOWTO which includes file transfers to mobile phones.

All recent Puppy versions already contain the bluetooth kernel modules. There is no compiling necessary.

Ah! Thanks for that! Google only brings up this thread in relation to Bluetooth on Puppy.

Its good to know I wasted my weekend doing the wrong thing (or maybe it saved me a lot of money...) Very Happy

I'll give that other thread a good long read now. Thanks!
