Bluetooth Personal Area Network
A Bluetooth personal area network is a private, temporary, ad-hoc network
of up to eight (8) devices. A Bluetooth personal area network allows you to
easily exchange information that normally requires a TCP/IP network.
Most chat utilities, multi-player games, etc. are fully functional in a
Bluetooth personal area network environment.
Bluetooth private area networks are subject to the same security settings
(service availability, authorization, authentication, and encryption) that
govern other Bluetooth communications.
One Bluetooth device must be the host of the personal area network.
Other Bluetooth devices join the network as clients. The host can accept
and reject clients on an individual basis.
To set up a Bluetooth personal area network:
1. From the Bluetooth Manager,
select New>Connect> Join a
personal network. Tap Next.
2. On the wizard screen, select Host
a personal network, then tap
3. Add remote devices to the
Bluetooth personal network, if
a. Tap the Add button and select
the device that you wish to
b. Add other devices, if desired.
There can be up to eight
devices, including the host.
4. After adding devices, tap OK to
complete the setup and close the
Adding devices is optional. You do not have to add devices to
the personal network while configuring the host. You can let
other devices join the personal network later.
