Bluetooth modems are very common, especially common when cellular phone is bluetooth enabled.
First setup core bluetooth.
|Linux Kernel Configuration:|
[*] Networking support ---> <M> Bluetooth subsystem support ---> <M> RFCOMM protocol support [*] RFCOMM TTY support
Attach you modem as any regular device see Gentoo/Bluetooth.
Assuming device address is 00:24:7C:2F:92:7C, add entry:
The tricky is to find the channel number, if you don't have documentation of device, simply start of 0 and increment while testing.
Test using net-misc/taylor-uucp
Simply enter "AT" and expect for "OK", to exit use "~." sequence.
# cu -l /dev/rfcomm0 Connected. AT OK !.
Now you can configure ppp to be used with modem.
