Pair a BLE Mini (Running HCI Firmata - Central) to BLE Shield (Peripheral)


In the HCI library page it is mentioned that it is possible to pair a BLE Mini with a BLE Shield, and I would like to pair each of these devices to Arduinos.

I already have the BLE Mini loaded with the HCI Firmata (specifically hci_uart_57600bps.bin, from a Windows 7 machine), but when I run the BiscuitCentral sketch on the Mini and the BiscuitPeripheral sketch on the Shield, the Mini does not discover the shield.

I’m at a loss for what steps I’m missing to make this communication happen, if there’s some adjustments I need to make in order for the Mini to recognize a Shield.
