Generic USB or bluetooth redirection is not supported, no. We try to
focus on redirecting higher layers, as it is easier to provide reliable
functionality there.

If the bluetooth device is exporting a serial port (which is fairly
common for many bluetooth interfaces), then exporting that serial port
is possible through ThinLinc.
