    I am trying to develop an application in .NET using WPF and using 32feet productions software solution.

    I want to be able to transmit an image from Windows 7 to Android using OBEX, there are several OBEX clients such as Astro and Medieval Bluetooth file transfer which i have used but nothing seems to work.

    My program tries to simplify the pairing process by specifying a 4 digit pin such as 0000 so that when we initiate a file transfer to the bluetooth address the user on the other hand just needs to push in 0000.

    I also seem to notice that the file transfer ftp seems to choose different ports each time, is there a way to predict this or keep this static?

    Last question, is there a way to send a file to Android without pairing? We try obex push but it doesnt seem to take it.

    Has anyone had any bright ideas about this? At work I used share documents all the time with obex push, but now I am on android, I don't want to have to pair with every device I want to send a file too. Surely this should be possible, the reciever does have to accept the transfer after all, so it can't be a security risk surely?
