Why open obex over bluetooth is so slow?

    I am using open obex over bluez stack on linux to push file to a nokia phone.My donle is a usb csr dongle. I programmed followed the test example for pushing files in openobex. But I foud the speed is too slow, about no more than 20kBype/s. If I use the windows or ivt stack for pushing, with same pc and phone, the speed is twice as openobex-about 60-70kByte/s. And the kdebluetooth also use openobex to push, it's as slow as my program-about 15-20kByte/s.

    I wonder is this caused by the bluez stack or due to defect of open obex? Is there any way to improve the speed for obexpush over bluetooth?

      Yu should try gnome bt with nautilus for example then as it yu should know if the problem come from openobex or bluez, perhap's it only a driver problem, are yu using ndiswrapper?

      I noticed the same. I can push files more than twice as fast using windows.

    I'm also experiencing the speed problem. I need to send large files to the device using a bash script, but the speed is never higher than 15kb/s. Instead using the gui tool from the Blueman applet 1.10 (Ubuntu 9.10)  the speed achieves 115-120kb/s, but I didn't manage to send files from command line via obex-data-server. :( Is there something I can do to set the speed of data exchange higher?
