i am trying to create an application where i can remotely control my pc functionality through a mobile over a bluetooth connection.
i have developed the client application for mobile in j2me and for pc server application i have used bluecove-2.0.2 while i have used jsr 82 for client application in mobile. however when i start the server application on my laptop the client application is not able to discover it even though i have verified the code for both the applications?

if anyone has the solution please help me?

You probably haven't made your server visible.

Running Linux, when I plug in my Bluetooth dongle and the autostart mechanism adds the Bluetooth control app to my taskbar, the computer can send, but not receive. I have to click on the control app's icon and select the dialog option that makes the computer receptive to transmissions.

In some cases you may also need to establish a pairing relationship, which generally requires you to exchange a PIN number.

Full details are more than can easily be answered in an online forum, but there's some fairly good resources available on the Internet.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
