so "hcitool scan" does not work? Did you enable bluetooth on both pcs
$ chkconfig bluetooth on
$ wervice bluetooth start

Now you really _should_ be able see the remote device... 

After that start system-config-securitylevel and disable "SELinux
protection for service bluetooth", otherwise you will not be able to
pair the devices.

You have to edit your /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf, too.
Set security to "user" and change the pinhelper from the dbus helper
(which is broken ATM) to the normal pin-helper /usr/bin/bluepin.

If you are trying to connect two computers you are probably looking for
something more sophisticated than sending files with obex. You can setup
a TCP/IP link over bluetooth with pan, see
