I have an HTC Desire HD, with Android Froyo (2.2) and PDANet installed. I am using Ubuntu 10.10.

I cannot tether it over Bluetooth either with Network Manager or BlueMan. (note, I installed Blueman only after failing with NetWork manager, and I even tried the last version from the PPA).

With both my device is discovered, paired, setup. But connecting always fail.

  • Network manager says it cannot get the details of my device
  • Blueman says Connection Refused (111)

Here are some relevant entries from syslog.

Any help ?

PS: tethering via USB or WiFi is not an option, I need to do it over Bluetooth.
