Nokia N95 bluetooth teethering with T-Mobile under Linux and Delll Latitude D630

Spent a bit of time to configure my Nokia mobile to teethering wih my Linux and T-Mobile. Here is some steps that may help the others :

  • If you don’t have that blue bluetooth led switched on on your Dell Latitude D630 Laptop you have to enable it. I haven’t find any way to do that via the Linux Kernel module but with Windows under Vmware Player (3.0) enabling Bluetooth and installing the driver (manually not via the setup.exe) enabled bluetooth.
  • Switched on bluetooth on the Phone and attached to the laptop via gnome bluetooth applet thingy.
  • Get my phone device number from hcitool scan.
  • And did this (as root) :

cat </etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.conf
#
# RFCOMM configuration file.
#

rfcomm0 {
# Automatically bind the device at startup
bind yes;

# Bluetooth address of the device
device YOUR:PHONE:DEVICE:NUMBER;

# RFCOMM channel for the connection
channel 4;

# Description of the connection
comment “Nokia N95”;
}
EOF

/etc/init.d/bluetooth restart

cat </etc/ppp/chat-tmobile

Under Debian distros you can enable the connection with the command ‘pon t-mobile’ or you for the others can do via the manual way with the command ‘pppd call t-mobile’.
