My blackberry works tethered to my Windows Machine using the following parameters:
Disable IP Header Compression
Make sure TCP/IP Properties (Advanced) "Use IP Header Compression" checkbox is NOT checked. To verify this, do these steps:
1. Start Menu->Network Connections->"BlackBerry Modem"
2. Click Properties Button
3. Click Networking Tab
4. Select "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)"
5. Click Properties Button
6. Click Advanced... Button
7. Disable "Use IP header compression" checkbox
8. Click all OK buttons to close all dialogs
Also make sure you clear all these checkboxes, if you see any of these checked:
Turn off "Enable Hardware Flow Control"
Turn off "Enable Modem Error Control"
Turn off "Enable Modem Compression"
Using Karmic 9.10 I can tether it on 2G (EDGE) using the standard Berry4All (ppd scripts)
Normally it connects and PAP authorizes then just terminates connection giving the error
ian@ian-minihp:~/bbtether/conf$ nano rogers
GNU nano 2.0.9 File: rogers
# Tested by Max Taranukha
#debug debug debug
# does not exist in all pppd versions (osx)
connect "/usr/sbin/chat -f conf/rogers-chat"
so I googled it http://pptpclient.sourceforge.net/ho...s.phtml#cndlia
Could not determine local IP address
and it said that it is having trouble providing a local IP, so it suggested adding the following line:
And it no longer terminates and successfully stays connected with a remote IP even. But I cannot connect to it.
The chatscript is working great - it is the pppd script that has some issues.
I am trying to connect to Rogers in Canada (similar to ATT)
are there any ppp guru's out there? How do I get a local IP?
