You'd have to do the bluetooth setup on the client device first, so
that a serial port is created. Then you configure export of that serial
device in the thinlinc client (under local devices).

Which I suppose means that I can NOT use a real thin client, but need to use a Linux or windows installed box? Though I guess I can use TLCOS?

For the server, have a look at this page:


We unfortunately don't have automatic redirection of serial ports to
the windows server, so you'll have to do a custom tl-run-rdesktop
command line:

tl-run-rdesktop -r comport:COM1=$TLSESSIONDATA/dev/ttyS0

Note that this is a feature that hasn't seen much use so there might be
