Hi Brad,

Thanks - did you have time to check your setup yet?

The Bluetooth how-to on setting up as a PAN AP has an entry in /etc/network/interfaces that goes as follows:

#Bluetooth PAN Server
allow-hotplug bnep0
auto bnep0
iface bnep0 inet static
        address 10.0.1.1
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        network 10.0.1.0


This is failing during boot., right after the wifi above it has acquired its lease.

...
adding dns 192.168.0.1
udhcpc[673]: Lease of 192.168.0.86 obtained, lease time 86400
SIOCGIFFLAGS: No such device
bnep0     No such device
...


How is the connection made then? Is it by pairing? That I also have failed to achieve when trying to set up the Gumstix as a Bluetooth device on my MacBook pro. The mac gives me a pairing code to enter on the gunstix, but I have yet to discover how to do that.


Thanks again,

bnep{0,1,2} only appear at the time that the connection is made, so
you shouldn't try to bring these up on boot. There's one per pan
client connection.

I'll review the docs tonight when I have my gumstix handy. fwiw, I've
been using a setup that allows for multiple pan clients, but it's more
complex.

Hi,

I am getting very close to running, but this last hitch has me
stumped. I need to be able to point my laptop/handheld browser at the
Gumstix boa server via a BlueTooth PAN hosted by the Gumstix. But
boot processing of /etc/network/interfaces ends complaining that
interface bnep0 does not exist. I checked and re-checked every step
in the wiki how-to on BlueTooth, the PAN section, and still do not
see what I am missing. I also manually run modbrobe bnep and that
appears to work, in that I get no console output, but ifconfig still
does not show any bnep interfaces. I installed hcitool on the
gumstix, and get to a successful l2ping across the link too.

The other part of this I am stopped by is how to enter a pairing code
given me by the laptop to enter into the Gumstix to establish a
pairing. Followed closely by how to remember the pairing on the gumstix.

Any ideas/help will be gratefully appreciated.

PS: this is the fourth time I have tried posting this question. I
posted another question between this one and the third attempt, andf
that one made it to distribution. Any ideas of what is up? (assuming
this one makes it!)


Thanks,
