trouble with passkey using Bluesmirf Gold and Picaxe
October 28, 2011
I recently received a Bluesmirf Gold module from little bird electronics and am struggling to connect the Picaxe to Pc using bluetooth. when i open the bluetooth icon in the taskbar and press "add" it finds a device named "FireFly-16FF" i am asuming this is the bluesmirf module.. i stabilise a connection with the option "no-passkey" selected and everything seems fine. the module is wired up to the picaxe Serial in and serial out pins and i am using the serrxd command. when i connected the device to pc it said output port is COM9, so i wrote some code to turn an LED on and off using serrxd and opened the Parallax Serial terminal. when i tried to enable a connection with COM9 a pop-up appeared asking for a passkey. whatever i enter the computer says "Windows was unable to exchange passkeys with the device because the user has not been authenticated. The operation being requested was not performed because the user has not been authenticated."
would anyone know why i cant get communications working?
any help would be greatly appreciated
