PPP brings you into the world of IP : you get an IP address, and can run any
IP application (like FTP, HTTP, POP3 etc...) wireless. If your application is
just point-to-point, then you don't need PPP. RFCOMM gives you a serial port
beetween two bluetooth devices. PPP is one application that runs on top of a

up to you to run your own specific application instead of btd...

ttyS0 is probably the "COM1" serial port of your PC (not going thru
bluetooth). If you want to send your file thru a virtual serial port over
bluetooth, you have to choose the ttyBTx corresponding to the remote device
you want to send the file to.
