Re: [Gumstix-users] Newbie--Can I get a console using Bluetooth on Connex (out of box)





Guessing that most bluetooth dongles/software are pretty similar, setting
up a bt serial connection in windows is simple.

I just installed the software that came with the dongle over top of the
genaric windows bluetooth drivers.  Then the software was able to discover
the bluetooth device, which then gave the option to open a serial
connection.

I then open a serial connection from hyperterminal on the same port as the
bt one and transfer away just as though the devices were wired.  It works
with a standalone bt module, so I'd assume this should work with the bt
gstx.

I've had a little too much coffee this morning, so I don't know if that
makes sense ;)
