This article is mostly a list of pointers to resources that were useful to setup a ppp connection on my Debian system, using my K610i Sony Ericsson phone, connected through bluetooth.

I've used this HOWTO to setup a "gprs" ppp connection :

What I had to adapt was the channel for DUN connection :

Channel : 2

And the APN number :


Next, I use gpppon or simply pon from the command-line.

Update 2008/06/30 :

  • The APN may need to be *99***4# maybe...
  • Using gnome-ppp helps setup all the connection parameters
  • Also, configuring the bind mode to on for rfcomm0 in /etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.conf helps connecting withouth the need for any tty.
