Does anyone know of any ideas of applying PHP scripts to utilize Bluetooth? Basically, I would like a script to call upon a Bluetooth Device, and transfer data from an SQL database to a Bluetooth device.

I am lost, and do not know where to start.

You could run system commands.

Adding to the previous post, I'll assume (read as: hope) that you're using a *nix type OS for your server.  If you google your flavor along with the words "bluetooth daemon", a rather complete list of sites catering to your specific need will appear.  Admittedly, I didn't find much for Windows in the way of command lines apps, but then, I didn't look very hard in that area.

I run Fedora Core 5, and found a site http://www.mjmwired....rvices-fc5.html, wherein hcid() and hidd() were explained.

Because your question doesn't deal directly with native PHP features or modules, you may have to try a different part of the forums to get an answer.

I am actually using Win XP, i haven't really ventured out into the BSD realm. However, I will start looking for some bluetooth daemons for windows, thanks for the lead.
