NAME

grml-btnets - program to setup a bluetooth network access point (NAP)  

SYNOPSIS

grml-btnets [OPTIONS] <ACTION>

 

DESCRIPTION

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.

 

ACTIONS

start
Start the network access point

stop
Stop the network access point

help
Show the help message.

 

OPTIONS

-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.

 

EXAMPLES

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.
