Bluetooth file transfer to Nokia 7650 under Linux

It’s near impossible as far as I can tell! Well, not easily done anyway!
Here’s how I managed to get bluetooth working somewhat in Red Hat 9.

  1. I installed the bluez-utils and bluez-libs rpms using apt-get.
  2. I followed Tom’s advice in his lengthy article. I didn’t have to recompile the kernel however as it contained the rfcomm module already.
  3. I was able to connect the phone to the PC through /dev/rfcomm0 by using rfcomm connect 0 <my phone code>. I tried to use that device to create a ppp link by doing /usr/sbin/pppd /dev/rfcomm0 but pppd returned immediately, and Syslog reported: “pppd[31912]: Serial line is looped back.”

Bah! I’m going home!
