How does one make an outgoing bluetooth connection? I have already installed packages for bluetooth, and have run hcitool scan to find the BT address. And I'm using a USB BT dongle.

  • Yes, it matters. You use different commands to configure different kinds of connections. Bluetooth is a vast topic, so you have to be specific or we'll be here for the next month.
