Bluetooth Modem access on Ubuntu Natty

I have a Newlink Bluetooth dongle, and a Bluetooth Modem which has worked fine under WinXP.

Using "hcitool scan", I get the Modem MAC address and serial number.

Using "hcitool cc <MAC ADDRESS>" and I see an error "Can't create connection: Input/output error".

I have tried to identify what is causing this problem, but without success.

I would like to be able to use the modem to send faxes, but I suspect until I can connect this won't happen.*Any guidance would be gratefully received.

Many thanks,
