How To Bluetooth?


Hi

I can't seem to get my bluetooth USB Dongle working. I'd like to be able to send & receive files from my mobile fone.

When trying to connect it I get the following error messages:

' Failed to connect to the SDP server.

Please make sure that sdpd is running;
without it, other devices will not be able to find out
which services your computer offers. '

Can someone please help?

I need to know how to connect to this ' SDP server ' so my bluetooth device is recognized.

I have Mepis 6.0 Installed on 32 Bit x86 AMD Athlon machine with 486mb Ram.

Thanks

If you have everything installed correctly, then just type sdpd, probably as root.
