Bluetooth serial port


Hi,

When I attach my Bluetooth tongle to USB port, it works fine (hcitool works). My problem is I am not able to find which serial port does it use for communication? How can find it? I tried /dev/ttyS0, /dev/ttyS1, /dev/rfcomm0 but none seems the right port.

USB and RS232/Serial are totally different... You can't communicate to a USB device through tty...

I think it is /dev/rfcomm0, but you need to bind it to a device first. "rfcomm bind 0 [device address]" or something like that. Use hcitool to get the address of a nearby device.
