Tethering HTC Desire

USB

To tether using the USB cable on Debian 5.0 (Etch), install the dhcpcd package.

  # aptitude install dhcpcd

Connect the HTC Desire to the PC via the supplied USB cable and select the "Internet Sharing" option

Use /sbin/ifconfig to check that a usb device has been created, usually usb0

Run dhcpcd to create the network connection

  # dhcpd usb0

The allocated IP address should be visibile with /sbin/ifconfig

Trouble-Shooting

Check the routing table:

  # /sbin/route -n

Check that there aren't other name servers in /etc/resolv.conf

  # vi /etc/resolv.conf
