Hi,

I am trying to connect a device to my notebook via bluetooth. The device I wish to connect has a serial port and so I am using a Bluetooth serial converter like the one shown here:

http://www.sunix.com.tw/it/en/Product_Detail.php?cate=2&class_a_id=263&sid=524

If I search for the device it is detected, with no problem. If I try to establish a connection with it I receive an error like this:

Unable to present "obex://[00:02:77:EE:F2:21]/"
Error: Host down

I presume that this must some how be treated as a serial port and as not as typicall Bluetooth device, correct? Not usre if I am doing things well...

I appreciate any help to find out how to get this configured!

Thanks

EDM
