Bluetooth Q?


Where can I find a tut to tell me how to make this device:

[root coyote bluetooth]# lsusb -v

The modules are loaded obviously, but no /dev/hciN devices are created.

How can I turn this usb dongle into a 9600 baud rs-232 look/work alike?

I have acquired an rs-232 comm device that had an eb101 bt module instead of a 
db25 serial port for a legacy computer and intend to replace the cable with 
the bt circuit.  I can now communicate with this old computer using minicom 
over a serial cable, so I know the idea works, but the cable exposes both 
machines to the EMP of a nearby lightening strike, something the BT connection 
will isolate then from.

I just fired up the eb101 device on the legacy machine, but this dongle, 
despite both being called class 1 devices, and about 25 feet between them, has 
made no new entries in dmesg since I powered up the other one.  I would like 
to think the device discovery would apply but apparently not.


Cheers, Gene
