I'm afraid I cannot help with the bluetooth stuff,  but I have worked somewhat
on the server&client connection program.

A much improved version is available here:


The console.py script is thought to be run on the workstation.  Editing
the client.py script (which is transferred automatically to the PDA) is no
longer needed.

console.py accepts some command line options which can also be used for
Python itself:  -m 'package', -c 'Python commands',  other options are
accepted but don't do anything: -i, -u.
