Orbiter on Nokia 6680 and 6230i phones
« on: October 23, 2005, 11:30:05 pm »
Hi I have recently started using pluto and am having some problems running the mobile orbiter software.

I have both a nokia 6680 and 6230i phones and cannot seem to get the orbiter software to install on either.

My system picks these up and bluetooth devices but when i click the this is a phone option nothing happens on either

I have tried the manual send command as suggested in another thread using /usr/pluto/bin/SymbianPhone line and when using mac address of 6680 ays recieve message from bluettoth i click yes and goes no further and on 6230i nothing happens at all. As far as i can tell these are both symbian 60 phones and should be supported could someone confirm this and let me know what is going wrong.

Regards

Paul

your 6230i won't work because hasn't symbian 60 series.
with 6680, we have one were and it worked for us.
after you click yes did you try to go to messages > inbox?
did you install the app that bluetooth sent you?

Try install the sis file you'll find in 'inbox' (which is an installer for Pluto Mobile Orbiter). If it fails, go on the mobile phone, choose Tools, App Manager, Options, Settings and be sure "Software Installation" is set to On. Then try again.

Hi Paul,

What you saw there, the application with "no data", is Pluto Orbiter Mobile (PlutoMO). Where you're in the house, it uses bluetooth for communication with Pluto system. When you're out, it uses GPRS and small files called "vmc" which work "offline", when you're not in bluetooth range. The first vmc file is sent to your phone first time PlutoMO connects to Pluto system. "No data" means that you don't have yet a vmc file.

To make PlutoMO work with bluetooth, you have to be near (in the same room with) a  media directory / hybrid which has a bluetooth device. Once the application installed on the phone, you need to reload the router. An application from your media directory (Bluetooth_Dongle) will scan for phones and once it will detect the phone, it will connect to it, if the PlutoMO is running on your phone. (please be sure to have bluetooth turned on).

Best regards,
Chris M.
