I'm trying to let my Android (4.1.1) phone use my Mac's (10.8.2) wifi connection via Bluetooth. This is what I've tried:

  • Paired devices successfully; PAN interface created on the Mac
  • Enabled Internet Sharing from Wifi to Bluetooth PAN
  • adb shell; pand -c XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX

After running pand, I briefly see that Bluetooth connection established, but it quickly drops after a second. Running adb logcat, this is what I see:

I/pand    ( 4876): Bluetooth PAN daemon version 4.93
I/pand    ( 4876): Connecting to XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
D/BluetoothEventLoop(  300): Device property changed: XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX property: Connected value: true
E/pand    ( 4876): Connect to XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX failed. Permission denied(13)
D/BluetoothEventLoop(  300): Device property changed: XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX property: Connected value: false

How do I get this to work successfully?
