    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    First, you need to understand bluetooth protocols. Consider it a wireless USB device. Each device behaves according to certain rules, but each class has differences (storage, hid devices such as headsets & mice, etc). So, what are you trying to communicate with? What have you tried so far? What distribution+version of linux are you running? What kernel?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Hi thanks for your reply rubberman,

    I am using Centos 5.5, i am trying to send data to my robot as a command the robot is equip with a bluetooth to RS232 converter so that the microchip can easily accept the data.

    Now I have tried cat > (path to my device) but in this way i cant send a commnad like 00001100, then I tried minicom but dont know how to send raw data cause every site that i cam across all is setting the phone as modem etc etc but none is sending raw data such as binary number.

    I have also tried using pure java language but later found out it is too troublesome so I am looking into using only terminal of centos.

    Thank you in advance.
