I have 2 computers, both have Ubuntu 10.10 desktop edition installed. Both have bluetooth dangle, but the manufacturers are different. I want to connect the two computers and share the Internet connection.

On computer A, I set the bluetooth to 'visible'; and on computer B, I started the 'setup new device' process. On computer B, it can find A, but when it pops up a dialog and ask me to enter the PIN code on A, I cannot see anywhere on A that I can enter the code. I also tried from the other direction, but no luck.

I have not tried it, but here's a link for bluetooth networking with linux, or this tutorial (both found via a google search for bluetooth networking linux).
