I'm thinking of making a linux-based Blueooth enabled device, which allows an external client (e.g. a laptop) to connect to it via TCP over Bluetooth and retrive web pages which allow it to interact with the device without having to install additional client software. Is this a crazy thing to try to do? What BT services should I be trying to support in the device to make BT TCP connection and networking as simple to setup as possible?


Check outBNEP/PAN. It has good support by most OS:es and gives you virtual network interfaces on the devices and you can run TCP as usual without handling all the B.
The documentation (PDF) is quite thorough.
