Bluetooth issue

Hi all!!

Recently i wanted to connect my RH box with my mobile (Nokia 3660) through bluetooth, unfortunately i'm not able to do it. Here's the steps:

I got all the modules installed (bluez, rfcomm, l2cap)

With hcitool scan i discover the address of the phone

i ping it with l2cap and give answer.

I create a /dev/rfcomm0 with mknod (mknod -m 666 /dev/rfcomm0 c 216 0)

I did all the configs to /etc/bluetooth/hci.conf and /etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.conf and also put a PIN code.

When i try to connect from the phone to the PC it says "impossible to link to Bluez(o)" . I don't even put the PIN code.

With rfcomm: rfcomm connect address i put the pin code i put on the PIN file, with no good response (connection refused)

Anything else i tryed to do with rfcomm i get Can't get device list: Operation not supported (rfcomm -i, rfcomm bind...)

Maybe the problem is that i created the /dev/rfcomm0 with mknod? If this is the problem, how i solve it? Is there any other way to get a /dev/rfcomm0 working dev??

Thnx a lot
