I followed this tutorial here: http://jasiek.me/2014/10/04/bluetooth-console-on-a-raspberry-pi-using-a-usb-adapter.html

I am trying to connect my Galaxy Note 5 to my Pi over a USB Bluetoothub module. When I use the command sudo bluetooth-agent 1234 my phone asks for a pin number, I type 1234 and everything is great. But when I want to pair the devices for Rfcomm0 with the command sudo rfcomm watch /dev/rfcomm0 3 /sbin/agetty rfcomm0 linux 115200 my phone asks for a pin number again, and no matter what four numbers I type in it always rejects the connection.

How can I use a Bluetooth console with my phone?

  • It probably hasn't paired properly (bluetooth-agent 1234 should pair it, sudo rfcomm watch probably waits for a serial connection from the phone on the connected bluetooth (via BlueTerm or similar)) - make sure that sdptool command worked first though. This post on U&L may help. Also, what bluetooth adapter are you using (look at lsusb, hcitool etc - not all bluetooth devices work well) – Wilf Nov 14 '15 at 23:04
  • @Wilf Am I forwarding the right port with sdptool, cause I've seen other people use port 22. Also I am using the same adapter that I have seen many, many people use with Rfcomm0. – Patrick Cook Nov 14 '15 at 23:55
  • Ok, I have a new problem, it is in the edited question. – Patrick Cook Nov 15 '15 at 0:34
