FAO RedJak: Dell Bluetooth setup

Postby Uncle Bob on Tue Mar 27, 2007 9:39 am

Hi RedJak, followed your advice on another thread regarding bluetooth on a Dell machine. I did the "hcitool scan" thing and it sees my mobile phone, but I get the following when trying to connect:

Code: Select all
sudo hidd --connect 00:16:B8:9D:E5:05
Can't create HID control channel: Connection refused


I get the prompt to allow connection on the phone, I say yes, and then it asks for a passcode which you have to enter. I use the default 0000 but I get the message as shown above.

When searching for devices from my phone, it does not see my laptop. (Latitude D620)

Sorry for the inexcusably late reply, but, IIRC, hidd is only for use with Input devices (Keyboards, Mice, and the like).

Since you're hooking up a Mobile Phone, you should use
Code: Select all
sudo hcitool cc --role=s 00:16:B8:9D:E5:05
to try to connect.

My experience with non-HID bluetooth is farly (and by 'fairly' i mean 'VERY') limited, so, I apologize if this doesn't work.

Again, I am sorry for replying so late.
