Is there anybody out there who could give a lead on how to access the webserver on a bluetooth access point from a mobile phone? I have a Siemens blue2net Bluetooth Access Point (embedded Linux OS), but I guess it does not differ a lot from other bluetooth access points with build in webservers. The Blue2net has the possibility to store some webpages in its internal webserver. I want to be able to browse these from my mobile phone's internet/wap browser or if this is not possible from a bluetooth enabled java MIDlet (yet to be developed). With the first option I guess there needs to be a method to override the GPRS connection to the mobile internet. With the second option parsing of html or wml needs to be done within the MIDlet.

With the nice benhui BTbrowser I discovered that my blue2net (with IP has the following services:
#0 LANAccessUsingPPP
#1 NetworkAccessPoint
#2 GroupNetwork

Under #0 it shows URL btspp://08000660517C:2;authenticate.....
Under #1 it shows URL btl2cap://08000660517C:100;authenticate.....
Under #2 it shows URL btl2cap://08000660517C:100;authenticate.....

Thanks in advance for any help!

Best wishes,

You can access the webserver if you phone has a network connection and a http browser. And of course if the network connection can see the router's IP. To connect directly to the Bluetooth network from the phone your device needs at least LAP or PAN profile, and most phones don't.
