Subject description: Access the Internet from Bluetooth modem from mobile

Hello there !

The most updated article will always be here :

This article explains you 'how to connect to the Internet with your Bluetooth and mobile when you are using XFCE Window Manager.
If you don't use XFCE window manager then it's better follow this
because it's easy and its Bluetooth files will take small space.

Note :
I am using Lucid Puppy 5.2.8 With XFCE Window Manager
I suggest you to create a save file at-least 512 MB because blueman+python .pet will take big space

Step 1 :
install following pet and Reboot

Step 2 :
You may get error saying 'failed to apply network setting' simply press OK
select menu go to setting and select wm switcher, select jwm and press Restart X

Step 3 :
in 'jwm' right click select utility and open 'roxterm'
and copy and paste following code

dbus-uuidgen --ensure &
dbus-daemon --system
modprobe bluetooth
modprobe l2cap
modprobe rfcomm
modprobe btusb
/usr/local/sbin/hciconfig hci0 up
/usr/local/sbin/hciconfig hci0 class 0x3e0100
mknod -m 666 /dev/rfcomm0 c 216 0
mkdir /root/a
hcitool scan

If you get error 'failed to apply network settings' than again press OK and you will find bluetooth manager icon as per picture shown below ..

Check The Attachment For Image

if you dont get that icon than close roxterm in which you pasted above code and open new roxterm and type lxtask and search for blueman-applet if you find it than right click and kill it than redo this step

Step 4 :
now click on that icon and select search and pair your mobile device
(if it does not scan a bluetooth device make sure you have selected always visible or discoverable in your mobile device. if it still is not scanning make sure the bluetooth device of your computer is on and attached properly. You can check if puppy linux has detected your computer's bluetooth device in Menu->System->HardwareInfo in that select USB to check.)

Step 5 :
Now navigate to the /etc/ppp from your file manager.
in ppp goto chatscripts directory, now right click and select create new file named gprs and paste following code ..

"" "ATZ"
OK 'AT+cgdcont=1,"IP","enter your ISP APN here"'
OK ATD*99***1#

you'll need to provide APN address in my case it looks like this ..
OK 'AT+cgdcont=1,"IP","tata.docomo.internet"'
or may be even change the dial number though *99***1# should work, if not try *99#

did that ? ok, now go to ppp again and goto peers directory and right click to create new file and name it gprs and paste following code ..

connect "/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /etc/ppp/chatscripts/gprs"

Step 6 :
Now click console icon from desktop and type hcitool scan it would be like ..

sh-4.1# hcitool scan
Scanning ...
18:14:56:CA:9E:42 Yo

18:14:56:CA:9E:42 is mac address of my mobile bluetooth device and Yo is my mobile bluetooth's name copy the mac address and browse your mobile also save mac address somewhere you'll need it in next steps e.g.

sh-4.1# sdptool browse 18:14:56:CA:9E:42
Browsing 18:14:56:CA:9E:42 ...

Service Name: Dial-up networking
Service RecHandle: 0x10003
Service Class ID List:
"Dialup Networking" (0x1103)
"Generic Networking" (0x1201)
Protocol Descriptor List:
"L2CAP" (0x0100)
"RFCOMM" (0x0003)
Channel: 1
Language Base Attr List:
code_ISO639: 0x656e
encoding: 0x6a
base_offset: 0x100
Profile Descriptor List:
"Dialup Networking" (0x1103)
Version: 0x0100

It'll list all services your mobile provides. scroll down and find Service Name: Dial-up networking and channel number in my case it is Channel: 1, save or remember channel number you'll need it in next step.

Step 7 :
Now click file icon on desktop and right click , select create new script with name Connect and paste following code ..

modprobe bluetooth
modprobe l2cap
modprobe rfcomm
modprobe hci_usb
mknod -m 666 /dev/rfcomm0 c 216 0

# in the following line change mac address and channel number for your phone
rfcomm bind /dev/rfcomm0 18:14:56:CA:9E:42 1

rxvt -bg "light yellow" -geometry 134x20 -title GPRS_connection_tail -e tail -n 20 -f /var/log/messages &
pppd call gprs
gxmessage -center -bg "light green" -title "PPPD calling..." -buttons "EXIT" "PPPD calling...press EXIT for exiting GPRS connection"
killall pppd
rfcomm release /dev/rfcomm0
killall rfcomm
killall hcid
kill $(ps|grep GPRS_co)

in above script, in bold and italic line Razz , you'll need to change the mac address and channel number as you saved it, Ok so now we all set up , you just need to click Connect and it'll connect to your mobile and will create internet connection.

if it is not connecting to your mobile first try following in console
rfcomm connect 0 your-mac-address chennal-number
e.g. rfcomm connect 0 18:14:56:CA:9E:42 1
and then click Connect script file it should work fine ..
