Hi all, newbie to linux, ubuntu etc but it is a blast from the past from my old unix / dos days.

I wanted to use a mobile phone's bluetooth PAN to send data wirelessly instead of wifi. I have added a bluetooth 2.0 dongle to a 'webbook' running hardy heron. Bluetooth pairs with the phone but even with networking enabled the PAN doesn't work. Also using bluetooth aplet 0.25 from bluez.com.

I have tried various suggestions from the forum but they are either beyond my skill or refer to older versions of s/w or h/w.

thoughts please. years of using microsoft have turned my brain to mush and I am really looking for a gui-type solution,
