Can Windows 7 do a full ad-hoc network over Bluetooth?
topic title I guess.
I have two machines with bluetooth adapters, and I want to network them ad-hocly wirelessly using bluetooth.
In particular, I want to run arbitrary programs that depend on the usual TCP/IP networking stuff (Input Directory/Synergy for example).
Is this possible? Or can you only do stuff like file sharing over bluetooth?
 Nevermind! It seems to have worked... it was just really slow in initializing the protocol. Right click on the bluetooth tray icon after pairing, show devices, double click your other computer, and click connect in the main panel. Then wait for a few minutes, in my case...
topic can be deleted, sorry for another dumb topic ><
But if anyone is wondering why I ask about this, it's cause I want to wirelessly share keyboard+mouse between computers without having to go through a router
