This question is a bit off topic but since I plan to use the Gumstix for what I’m about to propose I figured I’d ask here first…


I’m considering a project which will involve a device attached to a Bluetooth-enabled Gumstix. There will also be a Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone (probably a BlackBerry for development, and another phone in the long run). The concept is that the Gumstix will be a server, listening for commands from the phone. For each command sent by the phone, the Gumstix will reply with one or many responses (including an “END” type response, so the mobile knows the stream is completed).


To make this work, will I need to have some form of device pairing implemented between the phone and the Gumstix? I’m not asking with regards to security, but more of a “can it work without that” query?


For the Linux part of this, what library do I need to learn to use to make this work?


Thanks much….
