    Point to multi-points Bluetooth?

    Hello all,
    Is it possible to make a bluetooth device to connect to more than one device at the same time using pys60 of course?
    if using socket.listen(5), isn't that telling the device i can listen and connect up to 5 devices?

    Thank you

    hello eng_electric

    AFAIK you can make only one connection with a bluetooth device, its not possible to connect the bluetooth device with multiple devices. Please dont ask me the reason

    if you are using socket.listen(5) that means you can listen maximum 5 number of devices using the socket but the devices are the queue and the "5" is the number in that queue so in that also you are listening to one device at a time.

    Hope its clear now.

    Aww...
    Well I'd like to know the reason so I can try to solve it . And is this a restriction on python not able to do or the device it self? I know network wise you can connect several devices.


    In sockets from python documents, i found this
    serversocket.bind((socket.gethostname(), 80))
    A couple things to notice: we used socket.gethostname() so that the socket would be visible to the outside world. If we had used s.bind(('', 80)) or s.bind(('localhost', 80)) or s.bind(('127.0.0.1', 80)) we would still have a “server” socket, but one that was only visible within the same machine.
    Can I use the same method in bluetooth? if so what attribute do i need?
