I am not clear on how to pair devices with FreeBSD and netgraph. Can I please get some help with this? First, this is the relevant output from kldstat:
$ kldstat
Id Refs Address    Size     Name
<snip>
10    1 0xc571e000 7000     ng_ubt.ko
11    5 0xc5725000 b000     netgraph.ko
12    4 0xc2ee4000 2000     ng_bluetooth.ko
13    1 0xc5736000 d000     ng_hci.ko
14    1 0xc5743000 f000     ng_l2cap.ko
15    1 0xc5752000 19000    ng_btsocket.ko
16    1 0xc5514000 4000     ng_socket.ko
17    1 0xc5527000 3000     ubtbcmfw.ko
I'm fairly sure the last one, ubtbcmfw, is unnecessary since it apparently works without it. Upon 'hccontrol -n ubt0hci inquiry' or 'hccontrol -n ubt0hci remote_name_request 00:13:c2:01:dc:c1 0 0 0', my WACOM Pen Tablet comes right up (that's the name it gives it). So, I wrote up /etc/bluetooth/hcsecd.conf as follows:
     # Default entry is applied if no better match found
     # It MUST have 00:00:00:00:00:00 as bdaddr
     device {
             bdaddr  00:00:00:00:00:00;
             name    "Default entry";
             bdaddr  00:00:00:00:00:00;
             name    "Default entry";
             key     nokey;
             pin     nopin;
     }

     # Ericsson T68 phone
     device {
             bdaddr  00:80:37:5e:4d:d4;
             name    "Ericsson T68 phone";
             key     nokey;
             pin     "0000"; # PIN code
     }

     # Dummy device
     device {
             bdaddr  00:11:22:33:44:55;
             name    "Dummy";
             key     0x00112233445566778899aabbccddeeff; # 16 bytes key
             pin     nopin;
     }

	# Wacom Graphire Bluetooth
	device {
		bdaddr	00:13:c2:01:dc:c1;
		name	"Wacom Graphire BT Tablet";
		key	nokey;
		pin	nopin;
	}
I press "Connect" on my tablet to put it in discovery mode, and start hcsecd -d as a privileged user. Nothing. It mentions a Dummy device and that's about it. And that's just pairing the device. I'll have to grep Ubuntu's HOWTO on this subject on just how to actually get the tablet to work after that. As an aside, hccontrol will find my tablet but not my cell phone. My cell phone will find both my tablet and my PC, but will pair to neither (not that I'd really expect it to). So, here's phase one: Pairing. How do I pair my tablet to my PC? Am I close? Getting warmer? Or am I freezing cold and unaware of it? edit: Changed title. [Edited by - Benjamin Heath on May 26, 2008 6:38:54 PM]

Nothing here? Darn.

Unfortunately it requires someone else with a Bluetooth dongle/capable-system, a Bluetooth Wacom tablet, and FreeBSD to answer your question. But, I'm sure you considered the size of the audience with all three. (Presently, I have zero of the three, so I'm extra helpful on this matter :p.)
