    iPhone tethering on Backtrack 5

    I was trying to tie my iPhone 3G IOS 4.1. I installed the ipheth-utils and could see the iphone attached message with "dmesg | grep iPhone", but never sees the phone device reports. I also had the opportunity to get listed in ifconfig eth1 and I get the visuals on my phone blue tie. However I get no IP from the phone in my eth1 interface and static IP addresses do not work. Any ideas on how to make it work?

    Tutorials:
    Code:
    sudo apt-add-repository ppamcenery / ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install gvfs-utils ipheth
    This allowed me to connect the iPhone, see the network interface as Eth1 but was unable to obtain an IP address. I tried to start the DHCP with "dhclient eth1", but have a timeout. He tried a static IP address too, but without success (could not get anywhere on the network)
    Then I tried the physical way as was shown in the same tutorials.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential ifuse git-core libimobiledevice-dev
    git clone git://github.com/dgiagio/ipheth.git
    cd ipheth-pair
    make
    sudo make install
    cd ../ipheth-driver
    make

    Hello everyone Iím having exactly similar problem Iím not able to get IP from the phone in my eth1 interface and static IP addresses do not work.Hey Perhaps a silly question, but do you have a data package plan that supports tethering. Also, I have read where tethering only applied to the iphone4.Do you currently get data on the phone (standalone).you have to check the phone's APN (access point name) settings.

    If you have a data plan that restraints may be used on a Mac, however, revealed that Goggling I cannot have the kernel sources to install device drivers. There is a wiki entry called "How to prepare kernel source BT5." I'll try that and then post the results here, but I feel like that will solve the problem. Please let me know if you face any problem will help you in everything you can. Answer here for helpís appreciate everyone here who replied help other.

    Ok, figured out how to do it. Since it is the beginner's forum I guess I can post a how-to with regard to my own question. The problem was that he had the kernel headers to install the drivers so it was not able to use the device correctly. So first install the kernel headers:

    prepare-kernel-sources
    Code:
    cd /usr/src/linux
    cp -rf include/generated/* include/linux/
    Install other necessary packages:

    Code:
    apt-get install build-essential ifuse git-core libimobiledevice-dev
    Then to install the iPhone drivers and the pairing device:
    Code:
    git clone git://github.com/dgiagio/ipheth.git
    cd ipheth-pair
    make
    sudo make install
    cd ../ipheth-driver
    make
    insmod ipheth.ko
    Enjoy
