 +====== PPP over Bluetooth to Nokia E61i From Mac OSX ======
 +
 +It is possible to link a Nokia E61 to a Mac/Windows or Linux box using PPP over Bluetooth. There are lots of tutorials on the net, however I could not get any of them to work, So this is the procedure I used.
 +
 +===== Required Stuff =====
 +
 +   * GNUBOX s60v3
 +
 +
 +NOTE: I had problems accessing the main GnuBox site, but after a quick google I managed to find the {{gnubox.zip}} file and did a self-sign using https://​www.symbiansigned.com/​app/​page online signing system.
 + 
 +===== First: configure the Phone =====
 +
 +  - Under Tools > Settings > Connection on the phone, creating a new "​Access Point",​ entering the following settings:
 +      * Connection name: Bt
 +      * Data bearer: Data Call
 +      * Dial-up Number: 123
 +      * User name: abc
 +      * Prompt password: No
 +      * Password: Leave as the default
 +      * Authentication:​ Secure
 +      * Homepage: None
 +      * Data call type: Analogue
 +      * Max. data speed: Automatic
 +      * Advanced Settings:
 +         * IPv4:
 +         * Phone IP address: automatic
 +         * DNS Address: My local DNS server
 +         * Use login script: No
 +   - Start GNUBOX
 +   - Options > create records. NOTE: each time you edit the Bt Access Point profile, you will need to re-create records.
 +   - Exit GnuBox. GnuBox needs to be restarted after creating records.
 +   - Restart GNUBOX, the windows should now be almost full with lines of text.
 +   - Make sure the peer Bluetooth Device is detectable
 +   - 2box Bluetooth > Serial port
 +   - The box should show the BlueTooth peer that you want to connect to, select it.
 +   - For "Do you want to require encryption?"​ answer "​No"​
 +
 +===== Second: configure the bluetooth PPP server ===== 
 +
 +I am peering the Nokia E61i to a Mac OSX 10.4.11. I found that I could use the standard Bluetooth-PDA-Sync Bluetooth serial device. ​
 +
 +The following command starts PPP in no-detach mode and debug enabled so you can see it working. It assigns the Nokia E61 the IP address 192.168.0.2 and uses 192.168.0.1 for its end.
 +
 +<​code>​
 + sudo /​usr/​sbin/​pppd /​dev/​tty.Bluetooth-PDA-Sync 57600 noauth nodetach debug local passive proxyarp asyncmap 0 192.168.0.1:​192.168.0.2 ​
 +</​code>​
 +
 +===== Third: bring up the PPP link ===== 
 +
 +   - In GnuBox, select Debug > Bring up IF
 +
 +
 +And the PPP link should now be running.
