Before I start writing an iPhone/iPad app, I want to know if it's even possible first. First off, I'm writing the app to be used in-house (not on app store). The problem is that wi-fi is not allowed, but bluetooth is allowed to be used. I want to have a MacBook Pro be a "Master" bluetooth server and have 6 iPads or iPhones to be "slaves". The "slaves" need to send data to the "master" to be put into a database. I'm just wanting to know if this kind of connection is possible. I'm having issues connecting my iPhone to my MacBook Pro through a Bluetooth PAN (which I think is the way I want to do it). My initial idea is to create a Bluetooth PAN. I'll know the IP address of the master, so I think I should be able to just send data to that IP address. I know bluetooth connections with other iPhones/iPads are possible with the Game Kit...but I didn't know if Apple crippled the ability to connect to a laptop to prevent unauthorized tethering.
