NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for btconfig (netbsd section 8)

BTCONFIG(8)			   BSD System Manager's Manual			      BTCONFIG(8)

     btconfig -- configure bluetooth devices

     btconfig [-svz] [device [parameters]]
     btconfig [-l]

     btconfig is used to configure Bluetooth devices.  If the device is given, but no parameters,
     then btconfig will print information about the device.  If no device is given, a basic list
     of devices will be printed.

     When the -l flag is used, just the device names will be printed.

     The following parameters may be specified with btconfig:

     up 	  Enable Bluetooth Device.

     down	  Disable Bluetooth Device.

     pscan	  Enable Page Scan.  This enables incoming connections to the device.

     -pscan	  Disable Page Scan.

     iscan	  Enable Inquiry Scan.	This puts the device in Discoverable mode.

     -iscan	  Disable Inquiry Scan.

     encrypt	  Enable encryption.  This will cause the device to request encryption on all
		  baseband connections, and will only work if authentication is also enabled.

     -encrypt	  Disable encryption.

     auth	  Enable authentication.  This will cause the device to request authentication
		  for all baseband connections.

     -auth	  Disable authentication.

     switch	  Enable Role Switching.  In a Bluetooth piconet there is one Master and up to
		  seven Slaves, and normally the device that initiates a connection will take the
		  Master role.	Enabling this option allows remote devices to switch connection

     -switch	  Disable Role Switching.

     master	  Request the Master role when accepting connections.

     -master	  Do not request Master role.

     hold	  Enable Hold Mode.

     -hold	  Disable Hold Mode.

     sniff	  Enable Sniff Mode.

     -sniff	  Disable Sniff Mode.

     park	  Enable Park Mode.

     -park	  Disable Park Mode.

     name name	  Set human readable name of device.

     ptype type   Set packet types.  type is a 16 bit hex value specifying packet types that will
		  be requested by outgoing ACL connections.  By default, all packet types that
		  the device supports are enabled, see bluetooth specifications for more informa-
		  tion if you want to change this.

     class class  Set class of device.	class is a 6 digit hex value the value of which declares
		  the device capabilities.  See the "Assigned Numbers - Baseband" document at
		  http://www.bluetooth.com/ for details of constructing a Class of Device value.
		  As a starter, 0x020104 means Desktop Computer, with Networking available.

     fixed	  Set fixed pin type.

     variable	  Set variable pin type.

     inquiry	  Perform device Discovery from the specified device and print details.

     imode type   Set inquiry mode type to control which event formats are generated during a
		  device inquiry.  The type can be:

		  std	  Standard Inquiry Result Event format.

		  rssi	  Enable Remote Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) in inquiry results.
			  This will only work if the device features indicate <RSSI with inquiry

		  ext	  Inquiry Result with RSSI format or Extended Inquiry Result fomat.  This
			  will only work where the device features indicate <extended inquiry>,
			  and the Extended Inquiry Result will only occur when the remote device
			  provides the extended information.

     reset	  Perform a hard reset on the device and re-initialise system state.

     voice	  Set Voice Setting.  [This should be 0x0060 for now]

     pto	  Set Page Timeout value.  This is a decimal value in milliseconds, indicating
		  how long the device will attempt to page another device when opening baseband

     scomtu	  Change SCO mtu value.  This is a decimal value, see ubt(4) for reasons why you
		  may need to do this.

     All parameters are parsed before any device operations take place.  Each time the -v flag is
     given, verbosity levels will be increased.

     Super-user privileges are required to change device configurations.

     Messages indicating the specified device does not exist, the requested address is unknown,
     or the user is not privileged and tried to alter an device's configuration.

     bcsp(4), bluetooth(4), bt3c(4), btbc(4), btuart(4), sbt(4), ubt(4)

     The btconfig command was written for NetBSD 4.0 by Iain Hibbert under the sponsorship of
     Itronix, Inc.

     The output is very messy.
