I am trying to bring up Bluetooth networking with pand, verdex as the Bluetooth master, so I can access boa from a handheld. I know the handheld can do it because I have paired it with a T-Mobile phone in a PAN config with the phone serving and got through to the internet that way. With the verdex as the access point all I want is the local boa server. 

I have set up everything as described in the pan access point  section ot the bluetooth how-to page except btap does nothing (since a) I am not routing anywhere and b) iptables throws an error not knowing about a table called 'nat')

also your master preference from below, but bnep0 is not getting installed. Relevant dump from the boot console:

Any idea why the bnep0 interface is not being created?

One other silly little question: when I go through the device discovery from my handheld, it is expecting me to type a passkey code into the gumstix. How to I do this?

Thanks again for your help,

I wrote up some details in the oe/gumstix wiki. To do them
simultaneously, it's a good idea to try to keep the gumstix as the
bluetooth master so you don't get a lot of latency switching between
piconets. In the gumstix hcid.conf:

lm accept,master;
lp hold,sniff,park;

will make it prefer to be master.
