I thought Bluetooth didn't work myself until I read an old web page (http:/=
/www.oook.cz/bsd/bluetooth.html) that had a few lines I did not see in the =
handbook.

They are in the section about "Pairing":

# hccontrol -n ubt0hci write_authentication_enable 1
# hccontrol -n ubt0hci read_authentication_enable
Authentication Enable: Enabled [1]

The thing I did incorrectly before that was not load the proper module to d=
rive my bluetooth device. That was my mistake.

I am most pleasantly surprised to have BlueTooth working.
