Any ideas how to download pictures, from Nokia mobile phone, with bluetooth ?
 
Hello,

after bluetooth install using apt-get install, the kbluetooth says nothing and the kbluetooth is too absent of any positive seens nokia guy.

On the other side, iwlist scan
does not list any bluetooh nokia gsm. :(

any ideas?

iwlist is for WiFi devices, not Bluetooth.

Start by putting the phone into discoverable mode (by default, a Nokia generally won't be discoverable) and run the command "hcitool scan".

What distro ? Moreover, pre or post 2006 ?

I use bluetooth to connect my fedora core 4 to the internet via GPRS - that's how I'm posting this right now. Nice.

For older Linux distros:
Start the bluetooth service: service bluetooth start

create the file /etc/bluetooth/pin and put in it a PIN code you would like to use: echo 1234 > /etc/bluetooth/pin

From your Nokia handset look for bluetooth devices and pair with your linux system using the above PIN.

With the command "hcitool scan" find your your devices' bluetooth MAC address, and then finally, to send files, use the command
obexftp -b <your mac address> -p <files to send>

or to recieve files:
obexftp -b <your mac address> -g <files to get>

On newer distros, you can simply go through the above steps, but instead of editing files yourself, the system will ask you for a PIN and confirmation through d-Bus.

Okey, now lets pair both devices (here is where I found most of my problems) as none of the pages I found showed how to do it. Pairing means allowing a connection from PC to mobile phone or vicebersa.

Edit your ‘/etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.conf’ to assign a device (MAC) and channel, use which you get in the previous step.

Mirage:/home/kets# cat /etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.conf
#
# RFCOMM configuration file.
#

rfcomm0 {
# Automatically bind the device at startup
bind no;

# Bluetooth address of the device
device 00:1C:9A:40:CB:BB;

# RFCOMM channel for the connection
channel 3;

# Description of the connection
comment “DUN to use N70 as modem”;
}

it works to put but not to get

how to get a whole folder?

the trick is that one has to run in paralelle

Code:

bluetooth-agent 1234 &
