Hi,
I am not using eqtooth, but use a DIY similiar solution with my HEQ5.
Does the eqtooth comm port get detected on operating system? Wich one are you using (Linux?).
If so, mine usually shows as an rfcomm0 port. You should have at least one port with similiar name on /dev folder.
Did pair it with the receiver?

Ok, so if you have the port showing that's good, it's detected by linux.

First check if you have bluetoothctl installed, normally it is. If not you should install it using:
sudo apt-get install bluetoothctl. Ubuntu should take care of other dependencies.

After that, follow this steps by order:

bluetoothctl
[bluetooth]# agent on
[bluetooth]# default-agent
[bluetooth]# scan on
...
[bluetooth]# pair XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
[bluetooth]# trust XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
[bluetooth]# connect XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
[bluetooth]# quit

When you pair the device, if you have a PIN Code it should ask for it. After you trust it, it should never ask again.

And the last part is tricky, some have made it on boot, some don't.

You can add this to the file /etc/rc.local:

rfcomm bind hci0 XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX 1 &

This did not work for me, I created a bash script with the same line and run it after login in.

after the bind it should be possible to use the rfcomm0 port in Ekos. If you get a permission error, add you user to the dialout group:

sudo adduser $USER dialout, logout and login again.

Note: XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX is the mac address of the adapter that you are trying to connect, it's listed after the SCAN ON command.

This is all I remember, something could be missing, if you have problems please report again.

While this is applicable to StellarMate, I believe it can help you. Start watching at 3:45 minutes mark.
