Bluetooth Manager can be used to configure Bluetooth device pairing (authentication) and provides a graphical front-end to support FreeBSD's hcsecd(8)[1] daemon which controls the link keys and PIN codes used by Bluetooth pairing. FreeBSD supports all Bluetooth USB dongle devices that conform with Bluetooth specification v1.1.

NOTE: Bluetooth Manager only sets up pairing/connections between devices, it does not currently facilitate the activation/usage of other bluetooth services such as file sharing. You will still need to use the command-line FreeBSD utilities[2] for starting and using bluetooth services as necessary after the pairing is complete.
Figure 8.11a: New Device Detected in Bluetooth Manager
Figure 8.11b: Configure Bluetooth Pairing

To launch Bluetooth Manager, either click its icon in Control Panel or type pc-su pc-bluetoothmanager. You will be prompted for your password. If you plug in in a Bluetooth USB dongle device and click on the "New Devices" tab, it should be displayed as it appears in Figure 8.11a. If the device is not found, a message in the lower half of the screen will prompt you to put the device in discovery mode and then to rescan by clicking the "Scan" button.

If the device, such as a cell phone, requires a PIN key in order to access a service, use the "Saved Devices" tab to view and modify the pairing configuration. In the example shown in Figure 8.11b, the first three entries (Default, Dummy, and Dummy) are three FreeBSD sample entries and the fourth entry is for the inserted device. The sample entries are included as they provide examples of valid link keys and PIN codes. You can remove any entry by highlighting it and clicking the "Remove Device" button.

To modify an existing configuration, highlight the device and click the "Configure" button. In the screen shown in Figure 8.11c, input the PIN code required by the provider. The system will automatically generate the link key for you.

If you wish to add the Bluetooth Manager to the system tray, type pc-su pc-bluetoothtray and input your password. The Bluetooth tray icon will only automatically appear in the system tray if the USB dongle is plugged in when you log into the system.

Since the developers do not have access to every possible Bluetooth device, it is possible that your device will not be recognized. If this is the case, please take the time to report a bug so that the developers can work with you to fix the issue.
