Bluetooth Protocol with PPP to ISP

Hi all,

I want to use cell phone to connect to Internet.

My set up should be:

PC --> Mobile Phone --> ISP

Now my question how different is it to have a Dial-in part to ISP inside the PC than inside the Mobile?

If I have dial-in done in PC, then will I be building a direct PPP network between ISP and PC and the mobile phone acting as modem?

If on the other hand the mobile has the dial-in, then a PPP connection will be st-up with ISP and mobile and then the data to PC will be serial data right? In that case I wont need a PPP interface in PC right?

My concepts are a little not clear on this. Could somebody explain me the two methods clearly or send me some links?

Also is the DUN(Dial up networking protocol) in stack the one that connects to ISP?


Thank you!

No it wont. If you establish a PPP connection between PC and ISP the mobile phone plays no part in it. The mobile phone cannot act as a Modem unless it is the mobile phone that initiates the connection.

When you connect to an ISP via a mobile phone you dont' use dial up, It is a broadband type connection but you will still need PPP (Point to Point Protocol) PPP software. This will be included in your mobile phone configuration.

You cannot normally do dial up with a mobile phone unless you have a dial up modem connected to the mobile phone which it turn will be connected to the conventional telephone system and not the mobile network

Dial-up implies a 56kb analogue connection. Broadband still uses PPP but PPPover Ethernet or PPP over ATM depending on your ISP. Connection through the mobile network requires a different PPP again.
