I own two computers, a laptop with Windows XP-sp2 and a desktop with Windows
Two Bluetooth adapters : Sitecom CN 512 and a Belkin short range adapter
For bluetooth connection with the laptop, I only had to adjust the Windows
Bluetooth connection with XP laptop works fine now.
Vista desktop and Mindstorms "see" each other, I can give the secret key
Desktop says "connected"
Than on Mindstorms press "connect"
Mindstorms answers "line busy"
Switching off the Windows firewall does not change this.
I tried both adapters
Are there other security items in Vista which should be switched off ?
Please some ideas for solution of this problem.
I have run across a similar problem. Again with vista, but programming
in LabVIEW 7.1. We found the only way to fix the problem was to make
out own driver. Basically with vista, we had to recognize the
connection as a com port and then send strings of information over the
Bluetooth. It works and we are able to control the robot with minimal
delay. Now this was for direct control. As for downloading, we just
said screw it and used USB.
FYI, I am saying "we" as I am working with Case Western Reserve
University and their high school LEGO robotics competition and this
was a problem our coordinator found and fixed with us.
