I've got a weired problem with anyremote. When I use the device browser of ganyremote I can send AT-Commands to my phone and it answers. However, when I try to launch an aplication (click on start) I get:
- ERROR - connect socket for frontend
- INFO - openPort()
- ERROR - can't open /dev/rfcomm0
- INFO - Stop process …`
Any Idea what could be the cause of this?
Thanks & Best regards!
Which phone/model do You have ?
If You want to connect to the phone in AT-mode it needs to create
that /dev/rfcomm* before. You have to login as root to do that.
Please read http://anyremote.sourceforge.net/setup-at.html for details.
My phone is a Siemens E71.
`sudo rfcomm bind XX:XX:XX:XX 1` (where the XX is the phones MAC)
before trying to connect. /dev/rfcomm0 exists, however I always get the same errors, even when trying to connect with cu.
What I don't understand: Why do I get replies, when I run the "device browser"?
sudo rfcomm bind XX:XX:XX:XX 0 ?
There is a bug in v5.0 and it will be fixed in v5.1
For now You can use a workaround - manually edit configuration file and change line
I just played around a bit and found out that my problem was a stupid permissions-problem.
The solution is very simple:
sudo rfcomm bind 0 XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
sudo chmod 666 /dev/rfcomm0
Afterwards the Siemens E71 works well in AT-mode.
Thank you for your effort! I guess you have access to the HP, so you might want to add the Siemens E71 to the list of working phones.
- It needs the non-JSR-82-Version of anyremote
- It works in bluetooth-AT-mode
- It doesn't work in bluetooth-server mode
- no IR, no WiFi
- rest wasn't tested
