Default Autoreceive files from bluetooth Guest - 02-19-2009, 08:01 AM

I've got a Mini 9 with built-in Bluetooth running XP SP3. I'd love to be able to receive pictures from Camera phones (I own a little cellphone store) without any interaction needed on the computer.

The crucial part for me is no interaction required on laptop... just accept a file from a cameraphone and have it go to a directory. On the cameraphone side, if it asks them a code or no code, that's fine (I can put the code in the laptop's Bluetooth device name).

This would not be a permanent connection-- a customer would scan for bluetooth devices, maybe enter a code, send a file, then never connect again (I guess similar to how you pair up with photo kiosks).

The Bluetooth software on the Mini is the WIDCOMM flavor.

Is it just config needed on the laptop? Missing piece of software? Too big a pain in XP?
