File transfer Blue-tooth


Hi,
I have installed bluez libs,utils and all the requirements for bluetooth communication. And i am able to scan other bluetooth devices around. Will somebody please suggest me on how to start writing code for file transfer in bluetooth. Or can I get any packages online to do that for me. I am using RHEL5 and x86_32.

Thanks and regards.

I have heard obexftp recommended for that. It's cli. Gnome & kde have their own gizmos.

Don't know. I've read (like you have no doubt) that obexftp is the thing. I haven't set it up yet. A quick look at the project page, or the man page should get you started.

Depending on what window manager you are using, you can check out blueman. I use it, and it works flawlessly for me.
