    Bluetooth sockets and permissions

    Hello there,
    I posted the other half of this question in mobile java group.

    Well, I'm trying ot develop a simple bluetooth client application. It will run on my Nokia 6682 (S60) handset from Cingular. The application will connect to a PC over bluetooth - thats it! I tried to write it in JAVA but It looks like I have to have a code signing certificate to get it working. Without certificate, JAVA will deny access to bluetooth functions.

    Now, being very new to the area, I need to know whether I will have the same problem if I develop the client in C++ (.sis file) ? Keep in mind that I have a cingular handset, which does not allow me to use self-signed certificates.

    thanks a lot

    Re: Bluetooth sockets and permissions

    hi browndrf,

    I have developed a client server application, which does mobile to pc communication over bluetooth RFCOMM sockets.

    See the device you mentioned uses S60 2nd Edition, Feature Pack 2
    Developer Platform and Symbian OS v8.0a Operating System.

    So you will not face such issue in that, as i have already done this.

    So in symbian, start with BTPointToPoint example as a starting point.
    It is located in C:\symbian\8.0a\S60_2nd_FP2\Series60Ex\btpointtopoint

    And do not forget to install S60 2nd Edition, Feature Pack 2
    you will get it from http://www.forum.nokia.com/info/sw.n...16-3.0-mr.html

    Feel free to ask,
