View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Setting up "pand" for network access on Palm

June 26th, 2008, 05:00 AM
Just got a new Palm handheld and am trying to set up bluetooth/pand so that I can get network access through bluetooth.

I followed the instructions here:


which seem like they should work well. But when I go on my palm and click "Connect", I get "Initializing", then "Error: Serial (0x030B)".

Here is the output of "pand --connect <palm hw addr> -n" - not sure if this means anything

pand[6298]: Bluetooth PAN daemon version 3.26
pand[6298]: Connecting to <palm hw addr>
pand[6298]: Connect to <palm hw addr> failed. Connection refused(111)

Thanks in advance!!

hmm... maybe I'm doing this wrong. Reading over when I'm not completely tired I see that pand is actually for your computer to connect to the internet, not your phone connecting to the internet.

Can somebody help me do the opposite :) I'm guessing I need to use dund in this case?

Ugh, alright well this is a one man conversation so far :)

Found this tutorial: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PalmBluetoothHowto

and it worked great. The first time I did it. Had internet access and everything.

I restarted, then followed the directions again (because obviously everything was reset on the reboot). Now my palm just hangs at "Initializing", then quits after 30 sec - 1 minute. Somebody's gotta know how this works. So frustrating :mad:

After trying a million and one things... This is what worked:

1) Restarted the computer
2) Moved the bluetooth dongle to another USB port
3) Ran an "hcitool scan" and "hcitool info"
4) Might have restarted bluetooth, I forget

Tried connecting from the Palm again, and it worked. Don't know why, but it's working and I'm not touching it :)
