initiating a PAN using pand gets "Permission denied (13)"

This command
pand -c <laptop_bt_address> -r PANU -d NAP -e bnep0 -A -E -S -n
should initiate a PAN to a Windows XP system. It works vice versa (see wiki
URL), but if initiated from OpenMoko?, it gets error 13, permission denied. This
has probably to do with rights to a device or path or file on OpenMoko?, but how
to find out?

I'd be happy to test if you have suggestions what to test.

Install bluez-hcidump and run "hcidump -X -V" to see where this command actually

I have installed hcidump (thanks to ScaredyCat? who put it in his repository)

For some reason, I am not getting "Permission denied(13)" anymore, but
"Connection refused(111).

Looking into the hcidump, the error there is "Connection refused - PSM not

Does that help?

That means that no PAN server is running on the remote device.

I messed around with the WIDCOMM bluetooth stack on XP and wasn't able to get a
successful connection at all. However, with the Microsoft stack, I could set up
the Neo as a PAN host:

pand -s -M -r NAP

And successfully connect to it via XP's "Join a Personal Area Network" (accessed
via the BT tray icon). And the XP machine's ethernet connection can be shared
this way.

Obviously initiating the connection from the XP machine each time is not ideal.

As I said before, without "hcidump -X -Y", I can't tell really much. However the
usage of pand is deprecated in favor of the D-Bus enabled network service.

Oh... I connect with neo with pand happily.

I think this issues is no longer exists.
