Requests a connection to a Bluetooth server.


address is the address of the Bluetooth server. An example of a Bluetooth address is 00:07:E0:07:D7:50.
channel is the channel number on the Bluetooth server. If channel is zero, this function uses the UUID to specify the service to connect to.
timeout ms specifies the time, in milliseconds, that the function waits to complete and return an error. The default value is 60,000 ms or 1 minute. A value of –1 indicates to wait indefinitely.
error in describes error conditions that occur before this node runs. This input provides standard error in functionality.
uuid is the unique identifier for the service. If channel is zero, this function uses the UUID to specify the service. The UUID must be in GUID format. An example of a UUID in GUID format is B62C4E8D-62CC-404b-BBBF-BF3E3BBB1374
connection ID is a network connection refnum that uniquely identifies the Bluetooth connection.
