Out of the box, your gumstix will try to connect to a bluetooth access
point (using the pin 1234) and it will also attach a login process to a
bluetooth rfcomm port.
Once you know the bluetooth address of your gumstix, use it with channel
1 to connect to gumstix.
I'm not sure how you create the bluetooth serial port on windows. You'll
probably need to enter the 1234 when setting it up.
