    BB-->TMO Internet: At my wits' end!!

    Advertisement



    I need help!! BADLY!!

    I have been trying for days to connect to the TMO internet via BB bluetooth modem, and had only limited success. I am APPARENTLY getting connected, but there is absolutely NO throughput. A ping command comes back, "unknown host." I have collected information from TMO --IP addresses, Gateway, INIT string-- and still cannot seem to get the modem to TALK to the internet past the CHAP handshake. I'm using, #pppd call TMO as my command line.

    Here's what I have, so far --connection, scripts, config files, syslog:

    Connection

    # hcitool scan
    # [macaddress] BlackBerry 8100

    # hcitool cc [macaddress]

    #hcitool auth [macaddress]
    #[result] no connection

    # rfcomm bind hci0 [macaddress] 4

    I can then issue...
    # echo "ATZ" > /dev/rfcomm0
    #
    ...and see the blue light flash on the BB... meaning, I trust, that the modem understood. I also issued other commands, and each time, the blue light flashed.

    /etc/chatscripts/TMO
