BlueDUN & BlueVPN - What do you need to connect?



BlueDUN emulates the hardware modem on your Android phone. It allows your phone to share wifi or mobile connection over the bluetooth channel with other devices like PCs,tablets or navigation systems.  The bluetooth DUN (dial-up network) service is turned on, in order to enable the external device to access the Internet.

BlueVPN opens a VPN connection through the bluetooth channel and implement reverse DUN features. It requires BlueDUN installed and running on the Android host device or a GPRS modem/phone with an available BT DUN profile.

It requires one of:
 - Android smartphone/tablet with BlueDUN installed and running
 - GPRS phone with Dial-Up Networking (DUN) support
 - USB Stick with 3G or PSTN Modem

  2. Hi,after the latest update from Google for android 4.2 the app is not able to make connection to my Nokia e5 over BT. The app's connection trial lasts less than quarter of a second. And keeps closing. I tried to reinstall the app but am still unable to connect. Also, am not able to delete and re-pair the phone. Please help me I completely rely on this to connect to the internet. Thanks for your help. Sriram.

  3. I cannot "dun" from the TomTomb Go 930 using Samsung Galaxy Note. The paring stops at 65% and a generic error appears: "It's not possible connect to server". Thanks in advance.

    1. Probably you need to use a fixed channel number. Please install the last 2.3 (1.5 trial) BlueDUN version and set the channel number greater than "0" (otherwise it will be assigned automatically)

  4. After some frustration and trial and error, I finally figured out why my bluevpn connection was dropped almost imediately after being created. It is not a communications problem at all, but a usability problem!

    After the connection is successfully made, the bluevpn app displays a huge blue button. It seems very natural to push it (I did). However, this is the disconnect button! One should leave the application running in the background and switch to another app (eg browser) to make use of the connection.

    I recommend the author to replace the blue round button with a clearly labeled "disconnect" one, and perhaps add a hint on the same screen, that the user should leave the app running "as is" and switch to another app using the OS features.

    1. Thank you for the suggestion, but I can only partially agree with you, because the big button has a the OFF symbol inside.

  5. Could you give "step by step" how to connect Nokia N8 with internet and Android Galaxy Tab 2 7.0? These instructions doesnt help a bit because with N8 you cant load dun-program.

    ReplyDelete
  6. You don't need to load any program on N8 phone, simply enable the bluetooth (the GPRS modem function should be already enabled) and rename the phone if it includes spaces.
    - Create BT pairing beetwen the two devices
    - Install BlueVPN on Galaxy Tab, set the APN value in the settings
    - Click the phone name on the app main screen

  9. On a TOMTOM Go 730 and T-Mobile using a Modded htcHd2 android I was finally able to connect to TomTom services, using T-Mobile I service and accepting all defaults with no pw or usernameI spent about 4 hours just retrying all the settings. I think the trick is how the TomTom connects to the phone initially. I deleted and reconnected in different sequences. Not sure what really worked, but success. Good app!!

  15. Hi Mirko.
    Compliments for this wonderful app.

    I just use blueVPN to connect at a nokia 5800 equipped with a flat 3g wind .

    All is ok and very stable connection.

    Consider this superbe and fantastic, I ask you that it's possible to create another vpn, ad example a openvpn tunnel of a private intranet (work for example) using the vpn tunnel of bluevpn.

    Now I understand that the key assigned to bluevpn is to overwrite from a new key initialized by openvpn client.
    It's possible to create another key vpn using tethering bluetooth with tunnel bluevpn ?

    Also it's possible to see a valid connection for particular app ad example google now, play Store or Skype?

    Thanks in advance

    Ale

  16. Hello,
    It works good, but it's impossible to kill the process by NFC task. After few seconds it's back again. Looks like auto-resume is always on, even if not checked?

  19. The BlueVPN app works fine but the new Android version 4.4 introduces several bugs in the VPN code: packet are sent and received to/from VPN but not captured by applications

    I've started a bug trace on Google developer's website, please add your comment here:

    https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=62714

    The new updates 4.4.1 and 4.4.2 seem not solve the issue.
