Blue Manager supports the following profiles:
Human Interface Devices (HIDs)
The HID profile supports input devices such as keyboards, mouse, and game
controllers. Blue Manager can support multiple mouse and keyboard
connections. The application's main screen includes several status indicators
for connected HID devices:
■
Battery level
■
Num Lock and Caps Lock keys
Serial Port (Clients and Servers)
The Serial Port Client and Serial Port Server profiles (sometimes called "cable
replacement") enable you to use a Bluetooth connection in place of a serial
cable.
When the Blue Manager is installed, the software also installs the necessary
Bluetooth serial ports— four for general serial port use (client and server),

and one for dial-up networking (client). You can use these ports just as you
would ordinary serial ports.
You can view the Bluetooth serial ports in the Profile Manager under Serial
Port Servers, or in the Windows Device Manager under Ports.
To use a client port, use Blue Manager to select a remote device, and connect
to its serial port. After connecting, your applications can open and use the
client port just like any other.
To use a server port, open the server port from any application that uses serial
ports. Remote devices with a serial port client can connect to the local device
and communicate through this port.
Dial-up Networking Devices
The Dial-up Networking Devices profile enables you to make dial-up
connections to the Internet or a dial-up service through virtual Bluetooth
modems. Blue Manager automatically creates a Bluetooth modem whenever
you connect a Bluetooth-compliant DUN (Dial Up Networking) gateway
device.
You can view the Bluetooth dial-up devices in the Profile Manager under
Dial-up Networking Devices, or in the Windows Device Manager under
Modems.
Audio Source Devices
The Audio Sink Device and Audio Source Device profiles make it possible to
transfer high-quality stereo audio streams between the local and remote
devices. This can be used with Bluetooth stereo headphones, mobile phones,
and other audio devices such as speakers.
Audio Sink Devices
The Audio Sink Device and Audio Source Device profiles make it possible to
transfer high-quality stereo audio streams between the local and remote
devices. This can be used with Bluetooth headphones, mobile phones, and
other audio devices such as speakers.
SCO Audio Devices
SCO audio devices are used for voice applications, such as Skype. These
devices transfer mono voice information between a Bluetooth headset and the
BME application. They use an SCO connection, which is an acronym for
Synchronous Connection Oriented (SCO) link.
Audio/Video Remote Control Devices
The Audio/Video Remote Control Device profile enables a single Bluetooth
remote control device to control these supported applications on audiovisual
devices:

This displays the Open screen that allows you to browse to the file that
you wish to send. See Figure 7-3.

3. Open the desired folder, highlight the file that you wish to send and click
Open.
The file is sent to the cell phone.
NOTE: A Motorola K1 cell phone was used in this procedure. Your cell phone might
have a different user interface and prompts. However, the basic procedure should be
the same.
Pushing an Object
Blue Manager uses the OBEX Object Push service to transfer files between
two devices when no folder information is available. The local device sends
files to the remote device to be placed in that device’s inbox. If a remote
device sends the local device a file, it is placed in the inbox on the local device.
The Object Push profile enables the Atheros Blue Manager to exchange files
such as graphics and business cards (vCards) between local and remote
devices using the OBEX Object Push Service. These transfers are always
initiated by the sender. Therefore, these are called "push" operations.
You can use contact information from the following PIM applications for
business card exchanges and push operations:

Basic Imaging
The Basic Imaging Profile (BIP) allows cameras, printers, and other devices
that support images to browse available images by thumbnail, and to
exchange images as necessary. The Blue Manager supports the Basic Imaging
"Responder" role and will work with other devices that support the Basic
Imaging "Initiator" role.
Using Personal Area Networking
The Personal Area Networking Profile (PAN) allows devices to use ordinary
TCP/IP network services over Bluetooth links. The PAN profiles defines
three roles:
PAN User (PANU)
A PANU device can access PAN services offered by other devices.
Group Networking (GN)
A GN device offers "group networking" services, allowing Bluetooth users to
establish a private network of Bluetooth nodes
