I do this very simply by using the simple-agent.  Here is a sample.

hcitool  scan
simple-agent  hci0 <address>
bluez-test-device  trusted <address> yes
bluez-test-device  trusted <address>
#to check if it was successful should return 1
bluez-test-input  connect <address>

Hope this helps.

Your life is like a penny.  You're going to lose it.  The question is:
How do
you spend it?
