New User Question
« on: February 11, 2008, 11:26:30 am »
Dear all,

 I am learning how to python and pybluez. I follow the step form a book and copy and paste the program to the python. However, I have no clue why there is error coming up.
 There are a few questions that I want to ask. 1. Does Python just give us a simulation of bluetooth device only? (I will not able to use Python with pybluez to control my computer bluetooth system to talk to other bluetooth device). 2. If yes, why it is useful?

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Python25\rfcomm-client", line 8, in <module>
    sock.connect((bd_addr, port))
  File "C:\Python25\Lib\site-packages\bluetooth\", line 432, in rfcomm_connect
    self.rfcomm_read_msg ()
  File "C:\Python25\Lib\site-packages\bluetooth\", line 325, in rfcomm_read_msg
    raise BluetoothError ("Connection failed")
BluetoothError: Connection failed

import bluetooth

server_sock=bluetooth.BluetoothSocket( bluetooth.RFCOMM )

port = 1

client_sock,address = server_sock.accept()
print "Accepted connection from ",address

data = client_sock.recv(1024)
print "received [%s]" % data


import bluetooth

bd_addr = "01:23:45:67:89:AB"

port = 1

sock=bluetooth.BluetoothSocket( bluetooth.RFCOMM )
sock.connect((bd_addr, port))
