Ubuntu 8.04 mogul usb tethering

I got my Windows Mobile Sprint Mogul to work via USB tethering and Internet Connection Sharing on my Ubuntu 8.04 install.

Here are my simple steps.

apt-get install subversion
svn co https://synce.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/synce/trunk/usb-rndis-lite
cd usb-rndis-lite/
make
sudo ./clean.sh
sudo make install

Next plug in the usb cable, and fire up Internet Sharing and click connect on the phone.

On the computer click on the network icon on the top panel and select "Wired Network (Unknown USB Wireless Interface)" from the list and shortly you should have a IP address and be all set.

As a side note to make tethering work make sure that you turn on "Enable advanced network functionality" under "USB to PC" icon on the connections tab in your windows mobile settings.

Genius! I've been searching for a method to do this with my Mogul forever! Now I can finally tether in Linux and not have to worry about cobbing it all together with WMWifiRouter or VM. Thanks so much!

From my tethered Fujitsu P7120 using my Mogul. Very slick. Thanks so much for putting up the how-to.

I'm on sprint and have been using pdanet without ever getting charged for tethering. Do I need to pay for tethering with this or will it be the same as pdanet? Thanks.
