If you're looking for a communications protocol for Windows that allows you to enable the exchange of binary objects between devices, a good software to use is OBEX Daemon. Just to give you a bit of a background, OBEX is short for Object Exchange, named after its functionality. You can now perform these tasks via Bluetooth though it was originally limited to infrared.

Works with Mobile Devices

This program can work with many mobile devices like mobile phones and the old PDA's. You would have to install the software or a similar mobile app for Bluetooth file transfer on each device that you want to perform the exchange with.

Supported Transports

You can use OBEX Daemon for transports on TCP/IP and Microsoft Bluetooth Stack. You would need a version of Windows XP, Windows SP2, or later. The TCP server can also run on Linux, but you would have to use a program called Wine.

Easy to Use Interface

The OBEX Daemon interface is quite simple and easy to use. You will see three sections: TCPIP, Bluetooth - Object Push Service, and Bluetooth - Folder Browsing Service. You can easily toggle each function on and off with one click.

Beside each section, you can see four buttons that let you know how many connections are currently active.

The menu on top gives you a shortcut to the: folder, files, and settings. It's a clean interface and very user-friendly.


OBEX Daemon is a freeware. You can download it with no signup required, as long as it is for non-commercial use.


Overall, OBEX Daemon is a great and versatile tool to use especially for establishing connection parameters, and sending and requesting data. You can also use it to change the current path and attributes of a file.
