Hi friends,

I have purchased a Cyber-Blue bluetooth 2.0 USB dongle and I am trying to pair my Nokia N800 Internet Tablet to my computer which is running gNewSense 1.1.  I also have a Nokia 6133 cellphone which I would like to connect to my computer.

I have tried to use Bluetooth Device Manager 0.7.0 and it immediately "saw" my Nokia N800 and my Nokia 6133.  I then tried to go to the edit->properties to see if I could edit the connection properties but I could not open another menu.  I also tried clicking on the two device icons but nothing happened.

I have tried using bluetooth-gnome, kde-bluetooth, grml-btnet and I have tried to play around with hcid, hcid.conf, hcitool but I could not establish a connection.

I have to say that the computer "sees" the dongle very well, and the OS "sees" the N800. It looks to me that this is not a hardware or OS issue.

On the N800 side I went to tools->control panel->bluetooth-devices-new where it 'found' my computer with no problems. I then tried to pair the devices and it gave me a passcode. I found no way of "seeing" that passcode request on my computer other than this message on the tail -f /var/log/syslog output:


gNewSenseBox2 hcid[4648]: pin_code_request (sba=00:15:83:BE:9E:F0, dba=00:19:4F:DB:1B:54)

However, I did not find how to answer this pin request to the connection was terminated with the message "pairing failed".

I also tried pairing my desktop to my Nokia 6133 phone, but the same problem occured: the phone wants a pairing code which I am unable to give to my desktop.

Which file should I edit to have my desktop respond to the authentification request with the correct pin number?

What utility should I use to connect them?

Many thanks for any help,
