Bluetooth networking on the Raspberry Pi 3

The Raspberry Pi 3 includes built in Bluetooth 4.1 alongside Wifi. Bluetooth can be used for a while pile of things from streaming audio to transferring files, but you can also run a full network stack over it. I have thrown together a quick video below of how to set it up with a computer running Mac OS.

  1. Have you tried to setup up the PAN the other way? Sharing a Pi’s internet connection with another device e.g. mobile phone.

    1. I want to connect my pi to my work’s laptop but wouldn’t be able to use neither WiFi nor cable as the Pi cannot connect to the WiFi at work and the Laptop cannot connect to the Pi at home because VPN will not allow it.

      Cable I cannot use at work because it’s already in use.

      So I will try to use bluetooth.
