With Sailfish X I am unable to enable tethering over Bluetooth. It is not a Sailfish OS limitation as the tethering was working with Aqua Fish.

When I use tethering app to enable Bluetooth tethering, I only get "Permission denied" error.

Not sure whether this feature is in works yet, but maybe there's a workaround available.

Using the commandline interface I can enable bluetooth tether with connmanctl tether bluetooth on. Then the tether app shows Bluetooth Tether as "enabled". Still, I cannot connect a device to the internet via bluetooth:

nmcli connection up "Xperia X-Netzwerk" 
Error: Connection activation failed: The Bluetooth connection failed or timed out

Am I missing something?
