Thanks Philip! Works great! You're a good man!
Activate tethering over Bluetooth DUN
This program will turn on the Bluetooth Dial-Up Networking (DUN) service, to allow tethering; the actual service is provided by Maemo.
Jan, you might want to continue the discussion here: http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=42912
The dataplan monitor is using a low-level mechanism that can see all traffic.
There's no specific way to disable DUN. For bluetooth you can obviously disable bluetooth or uninstall this package. From an xterm you can (as root) use "start/stop bluetooth-dun". For USB, there's no way to control it once you connect in PC Suite mode.
It is curios, because some other SW (conky) don't know about connection via GSM. But data consume was counted in Dataplan Monitor. Is it possible to deactivate DUN? Thx for replay.
Works fine, without some problems, but I have question: if some one connect to my BT (it is trusted device of course) I only see the change color of BT icon, but i dont see the icon of cennection to GSM (GPRS,EDGE,..) but internet works on connected device thru my N900. How i can discover if someone is connected to the internet and download my data?
It works in the background. Once it's installed, it's always running - you just need to turn bluetooth on.
Obviously, you have to set up the connection on the PC side, but that's the same for any phone with bluetooth dun support.
You edited main.conf on the n900 or your PC? Does that even let you turn on services? I didn't thin it did. Anyway, you don't want to do that - you need to install this package or do the steps in the maemo wiki manually. The mechanism used for DUN on the n900 is not the normal bluez one - so nothing in main.conf is going to affect it.
Phillip, I have a question regarding this package.. I have edited main.conf file in /etc/bluetooth folder to allow the start up of PAN, HID and DUN. Do I still need to have this package installed or does it simply provide an easy way to do what I did manually? (edit main.conf file).
