ok-- i’ve spent a lot of hours on this and haven’t found a lot of help elsewhere, but i know there are some smart people on here that likely have this knowledge, so:
running a raspberry pi 3 headless and i’d like to connect to it via bluetooth for ssh. i’m using a macbook, so internet sharing is also easy. i’m trying to simply be able to click the BT dropdown on the mac to connect.
and for a few glorious moments at different times it was working-- i was able to simple
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org and all was well. but the connections were getting dropped and pairing is very unreliable. i’ve started from a new image now several times and haven’t been able to replicate a working setup-- in fact, i can’t even say what precisely i did to get to those magic working moments and i’ve now entered a total fog.
this seems like it should be an easy thing with minimal setup-- can someone here help me out? this seems like a valuable general use case, and perhaps it’s dead-simple with a GUI helper, but i’m doing it all on the command line.

ps. awesome bonus tip: hold shift+option when you click the macos BT icon and you get extra debug tools!
