anyremote - control PC with Bluetooth cell phone
anyremote [-f file] [-s connect string] [-log] [-a]

The overall goal of this project is to provide remote control service
on Linux through Bluetooth, InfraRed, Wi-Fi or just TCP/IP connection.
anyRemote supports wide range of modern cell phones like Nokia,
SonyEricsson, Motorola and others.
It was developed as thin "communication" layer between Bluetooth (IR,
Wi-Fi)-capabled phone and Linux, and in theory could be configured to
manage almost any software.
anyRemote is console application, but in addition there are GUI
front-ends for Gnome and KDE.
