i'm playing with two laptops equipped with the identiacl BT adaptors.

both computers are paired, both see each other, both have BT devices configured identically
however, it works only one way -- i can "open" / "send" files to the BT exchange folder on only one of the computers but never the other way round.

when i try to use my other computer as server it says "server error" or "error copying files" all the time, even though the client shows the successful connection message.

i guess somehting's wrong with the settings of the laptop that prevent from using it as a server.
any ideas what's wrong / how it could be fixed?

I can think of these things:

  • You can try unchecking the Secure Connection box in both File Transfer service configuration.
  • Perhaps the folder set as default does not exist there?
  • The current user does not have Write permissions on this folder?
  • An antivirus preventing this file to be received?
  • Firewall software?
