I'm trying to setup a network structure composed of a bluetooth device
(e.g. mobile phone) and a notebook. For this purpose, I was planning to
use PAN, but in Squeeze, it is written as follows.
$ cat /etc/default/bluetooth
# Older daemons like pand dund and hidd can be found in bluez-compat package as
# they are deprecated and provided for backward compatibility only.
$ zcat /usr/shared/doc/bluez/README.Debian.gz
The bluez-compat package includes old legacy daemons such as dund, pand and hidd
for enabling dial-up, ethernet networking and input devices over bluetooth.
So, what's to recommend way of enabling ethernet networking between
bluetooth devices? I installed bluez-compat, but this time there is no
/etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf file. I'm totally lost. Any suggestions?
