USB tethering (from Android) to GhostBSD?

Post by numericalanalysis » Thu Aug 13, 2015 10:17 am

Hello,
Has someone managed to connect an Android phone as a modem USB? ("tethering")

(Because some issues with GhostBSD I am meanwhile on PC-BSD, where I tried many options (kldload if_cdce or if_rndis) but with no results. I would reinstall GhostBSD in place of an old Windows, but I am now wondering if it will not be too difficult to manage internet connection, because I often use the 3G connection from my mobile phone.)

All idea would be welcome. Thank you.

Maybe these threads on the FreeBSD Forum can help.

Last time I tried to connect my Nexus 7 to FreeBSD 10 STABLE it didn't work - device was not recognized. BTW modern Android uses MTP protocol to connect via USB cable.

Thank you for replies ;)

@bsdkeith: Yes I have read these threads but I have not found something that works (I am a novice, too)... :roll:
@tankist02: Maybe, but my Android is old (Gingerbread) and I read on Wikipedia that only since version 3.1 it uses MTP.
