i'm going to assume that you would like to make your freebsd machine act as a server, i.e. bluetooth access point. if this is the case then you have to run rfcomm_pppd(8) in _server_ mode, i.e. you need to add '-s' (lower case s) to the rfcomm_pppd(8) command like. the '-S' (upper case s) makes rfcomm_pppd(8) to register SP (Serial Port) service in _server_ mode.

Oh, I thought it's the same as -s, just opens additional service.

i'm also going to assume that you are using gnubox application on your p900 phone to dial out. you need to use 2box direct mode. keep in mind that rfcomm_pppd(8) in server mode will not dial out. it will wait for the client to dial in. in other words you have to initiate connection from your phone.

Oops, I was not even aware of gnubox :) And tried to somehow initiate connection
from FreeBSD box before :)
Just installed it and finally connected to my FreeBSD.
Thank you very much!
