I tried the tips and links from the XP2 discussion also in thsi forum.
- Should I bother tying this with Hyperterminal on WIN98SE?
- has anyone got a .ht configuation file with the correct settings?
Are you sure HyperTerminal is using the correct COM port? That's basically the only thing you need to set to see something. The baud rate and such low-level communications parameters don't seem to matter for BT serial connections. Check the status of your BT serial ports and see which one received the connection.
Also note that you have to let bt_console.py form the connection from the phone to the PC - you are not supposed to form the connection from the PC to the phone with the PC software before starting bt_console.
Thanks for you help. I am now connected to the bt_console. I used a different freeware terminal program (www.mtek-software.de if you can speak german) and the connect worked first time with the default setting for the COM port.
