I wanted to establish a TCP connection between my java-supported Nokia X2-01 and my Ubuntu Desktop. I read several guides but they seem to be pretty old (Ubuntu ~8,9). Mainly the issue is with my bluetooth network not providing a DHCP server for my phone, so it does not get assigned an IP address.
The older methods involve fiddling with the pand config files. I was wondering if there is a better GUI based, or a simpler CLI way to assign an IP address to my phone on connection.
ifconfig gives the following output :
bnep0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:24:2b:f9:68:7c inet addr:10.0.66.3 Bcast:10.0.66.15 Mask:255.255.255.240 inet6 addr: fe80::224:2bff:fef9:687c/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1400 Metric:1 RX packets:4 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:59 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:760 (760.0 B) TX bytes:8692 (8.6 KB)
But when I try to open 10.0.66.3 on my cell phone, it does not connect.
I'm using Ubuntu 11.10 with gnome-shell.
