    Without being an expert on bluetooth myself, I belive this can be related to the channel you use. If you scan channels:

    Code:
    sdptool browse
    and select the one use for "object push" (that's the one I'm using) instead of the headset one this could solve your problem.

    Damn, pausing and unpausing amarok was this easy? I tried for hours to accomplish this (altho lots of my trouble being limited script knowledge).

    Btw, take a look at the scripts I attached to the first post - the amarok piece will check if your amarok is playing and only start amarok again if it is paused, not if it is stopped. Found it handy for the times I'm not using amarok.

    If at first you don't succeed - just buy the company and tell them to make the one you want.

    Me again...
    Just to add and make it more clear for some....
    I had the all ports "closed or denied" problem... did the "sdptool browse" command and for my phone the channel that says "object push" is 6, used it and work perfect.
