howto connect a netbook and a mobile to use it as moden

Author: Stephan  |  Category: Linux, Netbook, Netzwerk

Bluetooth must be activated on the mobile and the netbook.
First we search for the mobile
hcitool scan
It had to look like this.
FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF Komunikator

To use it more simple . we put it into /etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.conf

rfcomm0 {
# Automatically bind the device at startup
bind yes;
# # Bluetooth address of the device
device FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF;
# # RFCOMM channel for the connection
channel 1;
comment "Handy";

then we can connect with
rfcomm connect 0

To setup the PPP connection I used the gnome-ppp. The way through the menu was system => settings => network settings.
There you should find a point “mobile internet”. For me it worked with the default settings.
You find your setting in


and the correct connection number.

One of the more humorous uses of nagios is the possibility to check the weather.
This is the use of the plugin check_weather
Then you have to register at to use the webservice and get a userid and a license.
The userid and the license hat to put into

my $weather = Weather::Com::Simple->new(
partner_id => "my ID",
license => "myLicense",

The result

/server/nagios/libexec > ./ -l neu-ulm
WEATHER OK - Temperature -11 degrees celsius at Neu-Ulm, Germany | celsius=-11;;
