Hello Glen,

That is a permissions error. You should be able to continue by entering:

sudo hcitool cc DC:2C:26:20:66:27

Thanks for reply.

sudo hcitool cc DC:2C:26:20:66:27 returns with no error.

Any idea how to actually connect this keyboard? This information
is returned with “hcitool info”

sudo hcitool info DC:2C:26:20:66:27
