Bluetooth Pairing Fails


Hello,

First some system details:

]# cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client release 5.6 (Tikanga)

]# uname -a
Linux mycomputer 2.6.18-238.el5PAE #1 SMP Sun Dec 19 14:42:44 EST 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

]# rpm -qa | grep blue
bluez-gnome-0.5-5.fc6
gnome-bluetooth-libs-0.7.0-10.2.el5
bluez-hcidump-1.32-1
bluez-libs-3.36-1
bluez-utils-3.36-1

Problem Description:
I see two problems and would like to resolve both but initially focus on the shortes path to pairing my device, if possible.

1. GUI doesn't work the way I have seen it represented. I see the Bluetooth Manager icon in the system tray. When I mouse-over it a pop-up showing "Bluetooth Manager" appears. When I right-click on the icon I only get two menu options: Discoverable (with a checkbox) and About. The other options appear to be missing.

2. Pairing fails. I have a Bluetooth USB device installed and recognized but pairing simply doesn't work.

Bluetooth Device: IOGear Bluetooth 2.1 USB Micro Adapter

]# /etc/init.d/bluetooth restart
Stopping Bluetooth services: [ OK ]
Starting Bluetooth services: [ OK ]

Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.

I hope I have provided enough information to troubleshoot. Please let me know if I have left anything out.

Thanks!

Hi!
Maybe one of these commands is working in Red Hat:
Code:
sudo hidd --search
sudo hidd --connect aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff
sudo hciconfig hci0 reset
sudo hcitool dev
