Exclamation Typo in instructions

There's a typo here in the first post of this thread:

XmBlackBerry
Get XmBlackberry source code

ALL ONE ONE LINE !!
Quote:
cd ~
cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@xmblackberry.cvs.sourceforge.ne t:/cvsroot/xmblackberry co XmBlackBerry

Note the space between "sourceforge.ne t". Should be "sourceforge.net"

Thanks

Default Not get recv back from BlackBerry on TMobile

I am trying to connect my BlackBerry Curve 8320 via Bluetooth with TMobile. I'm using the scripts that dwangoac referenced in his prior post. The first time I tried this, it connected to the phone and it continued until it got to this line:

sent [PAP AuthReq...

It then kept sending that line over and over and then failed. Now when I try, it never gets recv commands back from the phone AT ALL and the process times out. I have rebooted my computer and also restarted my BlackBerry but still no luck. Can anyone help with this?

I must say that your article has been hugely useful though. All other solutions I've found were either not explained well or too complicated. Thank you!

Default uggh - 8100 & T-Mobile with Ubuntu 8.0.4

I'm close, I think.
I'm pretty new to Linux, so I'm struggling with that a bit.
I have the Blackberry plan through T-Mobile; I've been connecting via bluetooth tether and Win XP for about a year, so I have that working.

I'm really looking for:
1. What's my problem? (Not life in general, just this issue )
2. Can someone explain or point me to understanding this? Yes I want to fix it, but I also want to understand it.
3. Shouldn't noauth tell my computer NOT to send user / password?

So that said, I'm following SDNick484's directions (#41), bluetooth tethering
  • setup the rfcomm.conf (had to change to channel 1 based on spdtool)
  • do the bberry script
  • do the bberry_chat script (w/ tmo OK 'AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","wap.voicestream.com","",0,0')

I'm thinking I may have an issue with the PAP, but not sure???

I tried this second but it's shorter, so in the bberry script, if I try:
Code:
noauth
user 'guest' # or "", and verified plain text
password ''
It gets most of the way through the connection, then I see (not verbatim)
Code:
rcvd PAP something user=""
sent PAP something user="guest"
...
something about a timeout
If I drop guest out of user, so I have user '' or user "", then it seems my computer is sending the computer name as the user name. My results from that are at the bottom, because that's a long post.

So, I have seen mentions that although T-Mobile doesn't need the PAP, but my computer might require it? I tried a lot of things last night, but didn't get a chance to test that.

Thanks for bearing with me.

No user name results:
Code:
Serial connection established.

xmblackberry is just not needed anymore. I posted a much more simpler guide using just barry. Newest barry supports PAM as well as other tools.

Hello there, I'm the original author of this thread(long time ago)

I've made a new tool which only goal is tethering with a Blackberry.

It's much easier to install since it's just a python script (few dependencies).

See here for Instructions:
BBTether - Easy Tethering for Blackberry on Linux [Thibaut Colar's Home]

I only have a Pearl and tmobile so that's all I've tested it with so far, it's brand new so probably buggy, but I would love it if other people used it and gave me feedback so i can improve it.

Please let me know how it goes and success/failure stories at tcolar AT colar dot NET or comment on the site.

Thank you.

Hello,

I was able to see my device (btools -l). Now I'm stuck. I can't open peers to edit the script. I get "bash: cd: peers: Permission denied" How do I open the peers folder?

I wish a mod would move post #65 to the top of the post.


Works great (and easy to install) on my Apire One running Linux4One (a ubuntu release) and my tmo 8900.
