grml-btnets - program to setup a bluetooth network access point (NAP)
grml-btnets [OPTIONS] <ACTION>
grml-btnets is a program that provides an easy wrapper around all the programms to create a ready to run network access point for bluetooth and additionally setup internet forwarding. If no pin is given for the bluetooth network, a random pin will be choosen.
start Start the network access point stop Stop the network access point help Show the help message.
-h, help Show summary of options. -v Show what is going on (more v ⇒ more out). -s [subnet] (default=192.168.10.0/24) The subnet for the bluetooth clients. There should be at least 8 IPs in this subnet (/28). -i [interface] (default=eth0) Enable IP-Forwarding for this interface, so that the bluetooth-network could, for example, connect to the internet. The nameservers come from your /etc/resolv.conf, so be aware to configure this before you run grml-btnets. Grml-btnets does not touch the ip_forward and iptables config without this option! Do not use this option if you already have a working internet gateway on your box. Grml-btnets assumes that the chain policy of forward is on accept. If this is not the case please let packages from interface grmlbtnet pass. -p <pin> The bluetooth pin. If no or an empty pin is given, a random one will be choosen and printed to stdout.
grml-btnets -p 1234 start This creates a simple bluetooth access point (NAP) with default values. The subnet for the bluetooth network is 192.168.10.0/24. There will be no masquerading. grml-btnets stop Stops the NAP created with the command above. grml-btnets -s 192.168.1.0 -i ppp0 start This creates a NAP and the bluetooth clients get IPs within 192.168.1.0/24. This also creates masquerading out of ppp0 to let bluetooth clients onto the internet. grml-btnets -i ppp0 stop This command stops the NAP created with the commando above.
