    I documented that this is Intel only. I will *not* be building for PowerPC. I have no way to know how to test for PowerPC. Sorry, but unless something is horribly wrong, I'm done with this little side project.

    Hi,

    Is there any reason why I cannot download the installer and getting a 404 error from your website?

    Many thanks.

    Sorry. You caught me in the middle of a little bit of maintenance. I have moved that page to Et-Setera BlackBerry Bold PPPD Replacement and had not quite gotten the redirect page in place. Please let me know if you run into any problems with this new page.

    Thanks.

    Okay thanks got it now, but it still doesn't work, installs fine, recreate bluetooth connection, click connect, don't get a warning about pppd changing and the keychain which is odd, and then times out with the ppp error as before. Guess I'll just have to bite the bullet and wait for RIM/Apple to sort something out unless anyone else has any ideas. Thanks for your efforts.

    Here is what I have concluded

    output from sudo pppd --version for original

    pppd version 2.4.2 (Apple version 314.0.2)

    using previous zip download

    pppd version 2.4.2 (Apple version 314.0.2) - hacked

    using new installer

    pppd version 2.4.2.CFGDELAY (Apple version 314.0.2)

    Is there another location that pppd could be residing that the system is running from and not the /usr/sbin/ directory?

    benofishal: You are certainly running the correct version. Can you turn on verbose logging (Advanced -> PPP Tab -> Configuration Setting in the tethering network configuration). Use the Console application to find the ppp.log and see what it is saying. My guess is that you are running into a different issue.

    Wow, a modified and recompiled pppd. Nice. Very very nice.

    I shall have to try this when I get home. I'm quite excited. Maybe I'll actually get some use out of my 6 GB data plan (instead of a whopping 110 MB last month).

    xkon: Great to hear that things are working for you.

    I did hear back from Apple about the bug report I opened. The closed my bug as a duplicate of bug 6749380. Unfortunately, I don't know what I'm doing wrong because I can't figure out how to look at that bug. I do think it is a good sign that they already had a related bug.

    Craig, THANK YOU!

    I didn't tether much when on the stock at&t OS which is why i finally bit the bullet and upgraded.

    I have found a couple of situations that I wished I was able to tether. Now I can....it works!

    Thanks again!

    So how is this file working for everyone? What could it potentialy hose? I am tempted to install it on my new 13 macpro. Using ATT bold .266. Get the ppp error most of the time. Seems to work better when the bb data is off.

    Thanks

    richard371: I haven't heard of this hosing anyone, but obviously no guarantees.

    benofishal: I can see in your output that you are running my version of the code because of the 1 second delay in the logs. This error is something different. It looks like your carrier is taking too long to respond to the LCP requests.

    Thu Jun 11 12:49:57 2009 : LCP: timeout sending Config-Requests

    You might try setting the lcp-restart interval to a larger number (10?) and see if that helps. You would have to do that via the /etc/ppp/options.cu.Bluetooth-Modem file

    From the pppd manual page:

    lcp-restart n
    Set the LCP restart interval (retransmission timeout) to n seconds (default 3).

    OMG, I have 2 Macbook Pro in front of me and both of them are running the latest 10.5.7 OS.
    I can only tether one of them with my Bold (.247) while the other fails every time.
    I have cross-check the settings many times on both machines and I dont see what differs the results.

    Everyone,

    I have now made an installable package available... please read on.

    I have gone well beyond where I had planned to go with this solution. Since it was already working for me and others, I had planned to stop there. With that said, it became apparent that there are others that would like to take advantage of this solution that are not quite as terminal savvy. Therefore, I have gone ahead and packaged this up in an installable package. All of the information can be found on my web site at BlackBerry Bold PPPD Replacement .

    Good Luck!
    Craig
    Awesome, I installed this and it worked on first try! Also, I did not have to turn off data services. Thank you!

    bembol: If you capture some log information, we *may* be able to help.

    * In your Dialup network connection, choose Advanced, PPP tab, Configuration Settings and enable "Use Verbose Logging"
    * Attempt to connect
    * Using the "Console" application, find the ppp.log

    This will give you a lot more information about what is going on.

    the pppd replacement fixed the issues i was having after updating to 10.5.7 and .282 on the bold.
    10.5.6 and OS .266 are still the fastest connection in terms of initiating the tethering, it was almost instant, but now its about 19 seconds.
