Question Mounting a Bluetooth Device

Pretty simple question...has anyone mounted an OBEX device before? Is it possible (by mount I mean mount to a local dir e.g. /phone)?

I've been looking around and I've found some OBEX tools and some information on using NFS, but I'd rather not start all the NFS services for something simple. The OBEX tools don't -seem- to have mounting options. If Nautilus can browse it with OBEX://devicemac, can we mount it like a CIFS share?

Just thought it'd be fun to be able to command line stuff to my phone, geeking out sorta thing.

Sounds like you want ObexFS. It is a FUSE wrapper for ObexFTP, allowing you to mount and access your phone's memory as if it was a local (albeit slow) device.
