Bluetooth: minimal connectivety testing.

Previously I asked the wrong question: how to transfer files between
Win7. I need to test initially at almost a hardware level.

So far I've got:
the Win7 netbook sees other BTs in a shopping center.

When I plug the dongle into the Win7 netbook, the
dongle's LED flashes, but Win7 doesn't indicate that the dongle is plugged.
Perhaps the dongle needs different drivers than the netbooks native BT.
Perhaps the netbook can't drive 2 BT's together.

Here's some log results, from my slak-PC with the dongle plugged-in:-------
-> lsusb == ...
Bus 003 Device 039: ID 0a12:0001 Cambridge Silicon Radio, Ltd Bluetooth Dongle (HCI mode)
--> lsmod == ...
btusb 11456 0
bluetooth 54020 1 btusb
-> hciconfig hci0 reset
--> hcitool dev ==
Devices:
hci0 00:15:83:15:A3:10
-> hcitool scan ==
Scanning ... <- times out
--> hcitool inq
Inquiring ... <- times out
------------------------------------------------
-> dmesg | tail ==

EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode.

Bluetooth: RFCOMM socket layer initialized
Bluetooth: RFCOMM TTY layer initialized
Bluetooth: RFCOMM ver 1.10
Bluetooth: BNEP (Ethernet Emulation) ver 1.3
Bluetooth: BNEP filters: protocol multicast

==> enable Win7-BT == no effect on slak

-> hciconfig features ==

TX bytes:1047 acl:0 sco:0 commands:75 errors:0

-> hciconfig auth == same output

====> except that unplugging dongle == no 'return text'.

Making a comparison with a dial-up modem:
we need to FIRST establish that RS232 is communicating and that
AT-chars are being received and are correct, before we think
about the type of ISP authorisation.

So, since the Win7 is know to receieve, if I could test ONLY
the transmission by the Slak-BT-dongle that would be the first step.

Is 00:15:83:15:A3:10, IP6 or what?

Do these logs indicate anything usefull?
How should I proceed?

== TIA.

For computer to computer, isn't that setting up a PAN ?
For computer to device, you use pairing to set those up.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/883259

"Joining a Personal Area Network"

In that article, it almost looks like an item would show
up in Windows, which can be seen by "ipconfig" in command prompt.
(I.e. Has a network IP address.) In that example, it ends
up with an APIPA address, because there is no DHCP in the
picture.

I don't know exactly what you're doing, but see if there
is documentation for setting up PANs.
