  • config: gnokii configuration with USB cable (DKU-2)
[global]
model = 6510
port = /dev/ttyUSB0
connection = dku2

Attention: Please use the DKU2 howto to configure gnokii. The dku2libusb connection is the current way (the kernel module is deprecated).

Nokia 6230i can be used as a USB storage device (through the regular "USB Storage" support in the operating system) or as a data enhancement device (through Nokia Phone Data Suite or gnokii). To use with gnokii, "Data Storage" mode should be rejected through the phone's UI.

On Linux, the nokia_dku2 driver should be installed. With gnokii 0.6.8, Chris Kemp's updated driver should be used.

Not all of gnokii functionality seems to be supported at this stage. Unsupported features include:

* SMS reader
* Dialing voice
* Retrieving calendar items except for Memo items
* Retrieving ToDo notes
* Retrieving files (directory listing works but retrieving a file hangs indefinitely)

Warning: Some operations, such as 'gnokii -getprofile 0', cause the phone to spontaneously reset. Spontaneous resets, as well as orderly shutdowns (by pressing the Power button) of the phone, were observed to cause a certain motherboard (Gigabyte GA-K8NS) to hang tight. However, on most motherboards it should be harmless.

  • config: Linux, IrDA
[global]
model = 6510
port = /dev/ircomm0
connection = irda
  • config: Linux, Bluetooth
[global]
model = 6510
port = aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff
connection = bluetooth

Additional notes:

* notices using Debian before the first bluetooth connection giving "xhost +" to allow root to open the pin insertion window is necessary
* This is not always neccessary -- configure your bluetooth settings correctly and this will not be needed. Using 'xhost +' will, while doing the job, leave your computer *incredibly* open to third parties. There are better options, such as {{{security auto;}}} in hcid.conf and which a single static pin on the PC side.
