    Mobile-with-PC communication help please

    Hi to all!
    Can i implement TCP protocol "thru bluetooth" connected to my PC?
    Can i use RSocket?
    When i'm trying to connect to PC using RSocket "choose access point" ui appears. Can i avoid this? Thanks. Here is an example code (port and IP addresses are correct):

    RSocketServ ss;
    RSocket socket;

    const TInt KEchoPort = xxxx;

    TInetAddr destAddr;

    resolver.Open(ss,KAfInet, KSockStream);

    socket.Open(ss,KAfInet, KSockStream, KProtocolInetTcp);

    I need to implement some kind of client application on phone and server application on PC.

    IP over Bluetooth can be achieved, but the methods involve proprietary software and sometimes special hardware.
    The two methods I use:
    - Bluetooth PAN profile: requires BT PAN software (I use an NRC sw that is not available for the public) on the device side for access point registration and a Bluetooth dongle supported by the Broadcomm/Widcomm drivers
    - Bluegiga IP over BT: requires a Bluegiga WRAP hardware (it is a BT router) and a special software for AP definition
    And indeed both methods are rather cumbersome and a bit messy.
    I have also heard about achieving IP over BT using Linux, but that approach also requires some software for defining a BT access point on the phone side...
