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

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

     btdevctl -- Bluetooth remote device control utility

     btdevctl [-A | -D] [-qv] [-m mode] -a address -d device -s service

     The btdevctl utility is used to configure bluetooth devices in the system.  Normally,
     btdevctl will perform  an SDP query to the remote device as needed, and cache the results in
     the /var/db/btdevctl.plist file for later use.  If neither Attach nor Detach is specified,
     btdevctl will display the configuration.

     The options are:

     -A 	 Attach device

     -a address  Remote device address.  The address may be given as BDADDR or a name.	If a name
		 was specified, btdevctl attempts to resolve the name via bt_gethostbyname(3).

     -D 	 Detach device

     -d device	 Local device address.	May be given as BDADDR or device name.

     -m mode	 Connection link mode.	The following modes are supported:

		 none	  clear previously set mode.
		 auth	  require devices be paired, see btpin(1).
		 encrypt  auth, plus enable encryption.
		 secure   encryption, plus change of link key.

		 When configuring the HID service, btdevctl will set 'auth' by default, or
		 'encrypt' for keyboard devices.  If the device cannot handle authentication,
		 then the mode will need to be cleared manually.

     -q 	 Ignore any cached data and perform a SDP query for the given service.

     -s service  Service to configure.	Known services are:

		 HID	 Human Interface Device.
		 HF	 Handsfree.
		 HSET	 Headset.

     -v 	 Be verbose.

     For device configurations to persist across boots, add entries to the
     /etc/bluetooth/btdevctl.conf file and set the rc.conf(5) variable btdevctl to YES.


     The btdevctl utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

     See the Bluetooth chapter of "The NetBSD Guide" for detailed examples of configuring key-
     boards, mice, and audio headsets.

     Parts of the btdevctl program originated in the FreeBSD bthidcontrol program.
