Testing PAN-NAP service on Intel Edison

Hi all,

I am doing PAN-NAP service based on page 39 of bluetooth document: http://download.intel.com/support/edison/sb/edisonbluetooth_331704004.pdf http://download.intel.com/support/edison/sb/edisonbluetooth_331704004.pdf . They explain how to test PAN-NAP between two Intel-Edison devices. And I did it successfully. However, as I understand about PAN-NAP service that I can access Internet from PANU device via PAN-NAP device (have connected to WIFI). But it doesn't work when I try to ping google.com from the terminal of PANU device.

So my question is: In the case of PAN-NAP service, how can I create the connection to access Internet from PANU device via PAN-NAP device ?

Thank you very much

Hi squaredn,

 

 

Sorry for the delay in my response.

 

 

We have tried to test the Internet connection via PAN-NAP, but we weren't able to set it. As an alternative approach, we recommend you to set a bridge between networks as describe in the following thread: https://communities.intel.com/message/310195# 310195 https://communities.intel.com/message/310195

Hi Diego,

I also follow this thread but it doesn't work. It has error "can't add wlan0 to bridge br0: Operation not supported" when I tried to add wlan0 to our bridge br0.

Anw, I think the above thread is used for ethenet bridging with Wifi AP.

Thanks

Hi squaredn,

 

 

That's correct. We couldn't test the Internet connection via PAN-NAP, so we suggested you the other approach as an alternative way to get Internet connection from an Edison module.

 

 

Is this alternative approach of your interest, or you have the requirement of setting the connection up via PAN-NAP?

Hi Diego,

Thank you for your reply,

In our requirement, we need to test the PAN service. PANU and GN service can be done followed by bluetooth document. But we can not test the internet connection using PAN-NAP.

Thanks

I understand. We'll keep trying to test the connection using PAN-NAP. We'll post an update as soon as possible.

Hi squaredn,

 

 

I apologize this has taken so long.

 

 

Although we did not test it, in theory bridging might be a solution.

 

 

Our suggestion is to explore the bridging approach, understand it and develop a bridging solution if it's feasible.

 

 

I hope this helps you.

 

 

Regards,
