bluez & bluetooth & Sony T630
Hi all,

I'm stuck trying to get my pc & my mobile (sony ericsson t630) talking via bluetooth.

here's what i'm doing...

hciconfig hci0 up
hcitool scan

(Scanning ...
00:0F:DE:37:0C:78 myphone)

modprobe rfcomm
rfcomm connect 0 00:0F:DE:37:0C:78

then i get...

Can't open RFCOMM device: No such file or directory

any thoughts?

i'm using slackware 10 btw.

What exactly are you trying to get them talking about? I Bluetooth with my phone no dramas and while I've seen rfcomm mentioned a couple of times and sites and stuff I've never used it anything related to it for BT stuff.

You want file transfers? Download + install openobex and obexftp. Then you can easily transfer files without a hitch, once openobex is installed it's simply something like this at the CLI

obexftp -b 00:00:00:00:00 -B 5 -p filename/jpg
Where -b is your device address and -B is the channel to use, I have an SE k700i and it's Obex channel is 5so you might have some luck with that. If you want something in a GUI-flavour, install openobex but then either kdebluetooth or gnome-bluetooth, depending on your environment of choice. You should probably find Slackware packages of all these somewhere on the net, good luck :)

I have the same phone and running debian.
It all works fine, but I didn't find nice software to manage contacts with more than 1 phone number, but...

I connect my bluetooth dongle and then:

hcitool cc xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx

rfcomm bind 0 xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx

this will create a device /dev/rfcomm0, this is the device I talk to
