What configurations are necessary to connect a NXT 2.0 brick, using BlueTooth (BT), to the BricxCC 3.3 IDE (using Windows XP SP3)?
Configuration: BricxCC 3.3 software, Fantom Driver 1.1.3, and Firmware 1.29
I know that everything is connected correctly since I am able to connect to the IDE with a USB cable. The LEGO USB driver in the Device Manager reads Driver Version 184.108.40.206153
Read a recent discussion: Bluetooth/NXC/Mac, which discussed utilizing the BT address.
BT Configuration: BT USB dongle, Manufacture Name: Cambridge Silicon Radio, installed BT driver and set up connection with virtual com port 1: In Device Manager under Ports (COM & LPT) BT Port (COM1), In Control Panel\Bluetooth Local COM- Port COM1, Description BT Port (COM1), Owner LocalCOM-Client
Attempts to connect:
Started BricxCC 3.3 and Find Brick window appeared
Tried to Select COM1 and Search from the Port drop-down menu, but neither option detected the NXT device. This was executed while a connection was enabled and also when it was disabled in the USB dongle BlueTooth Settings (connected and disconnected NXT from desktop).
Using a concept from the recent BT discussion, I found the nxt.dat file on my computer and added a second line in the dat file (first line was the alias for the USB connection) using the format:
The above steps were run to use the created BT label in the Find Brick window.
In the Find Brick window the Port values: COM1, Search, and the alias BT label were varied in an attempt to discover the NXT brick using the BricxCC 3.3. software.
NXT was selected in the Brick Type drop-down menu
Standard radio button was selected for the Firmware
Thank you for any help you are able to provide.
