I am writing an Android app that should exchange data to a server over Bluetooth, with the server side on a PC running Ubuntu, using the bluez library, in C (or C++).

My Android app fails (IOException) when I try to connect to my server socket on the PC.
Here is essentially what I in the java code (in Android, full eclipse project here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2968234/ThinBTClient.zip)
This throws IOException after a timeout of 10seconds or so.
On the server side (in Ubuntu 8.10), I basically set up a Bluetooth server socket, along the lines described in the example bluez/sdp-register.c
Down below is my C++ program. To compile it do
g++ -I/usr/include/glib-2.0/ -I/usr/lib/glib-2.0/include -o bt_server bt_server.cpp -lbluetooth
I can do the reverse succesfully, i.e. create a server socket in Android and connect from Linux, however this is not what I want to do!
I think either the problem has to do with my config of Ubuntu.
