NAME
       rfcomm - RFCOMM configuration utility

SYNOPSIS
       rfcomm [ options ] < command > < dev >

DESCRIPTION
       rfcomm  is used to set up, maintain, and inspect the RFCOMM configuration of the Bluetooth
       subsystem in the Linux kernel. If no command is given, or if the option -a is used, rfcomm
       prints information about the configured RFCOMM devices.

OPTIONS
       -h     Gives a list of possible commands.

       -a     Prints information about all configured RFCOMM devices.

       -r     Switch TTY into raw mode (doesn't work with "bind").

       -f <file>
	      Specify alternate config file.

       -i <hciX> | <bdaddr>
	      The  command  is applied to device -A Enable authentication.  -E Enable encryption.
	      -S Secure connection.  -M Become the master of a piconet.  hciX , which must be the
	      name or the address of an installed Bluetooth device. If not specified, the command
	      will be use the first available Bluetooth device.

       -A     Enable authentification

       -E     Enable encryption

       -S     Secure connection

       -M     Become the master of a piconet

       -L <seconds>
	      Set linger timeout

COMMANDS
       show <dev>
	      Display the information about the specified device.

       connect <dev> [bdaddr] [channel]
	      Connect the RFCOMM device to the remote Bluetooth device on the specified  channel.
	      If no channel is specified, it will use the channel number 1. If also the Bluetooth
	      address is left out, it tries to read the data from the config file.  This  command
	      can be terminated with the key sequence CTRL-C.

       listen <dev> [channel] [cmd]
	      Listen  on  a  specified RFCOMM channel for incoming connections.  If no channel is
	      specified, it will use the channel number 1, but a channel must be specified before
	      cmd.  If	cmd  is given, it will be executed as soon as a client connects. When the
	      child process terminates or the client  disconnect,  the	command  will  terminate.
	      Occurences of {} in cmd will be replaced by the name of the device used by the con-
	      nection. This command can be terminated with the key sequence CTRL-C.

       watch <dev> [channel] [cmd]
	      Watch is identical to listen except that when the child process terminates  or  the
	      client disconnect, the command will restart listening with the same parameters.

       bind <dev> [bdaddr] [channel]
	      This  binds  the	RFCOMM	device	to a remote Bluetooth device. The command did not
	      establish a connection to the remote device, it only creates the binding. The  con-
	      nection  will  be  established  right after an application tries to open the RFCOMM
	      device. If no channel number is specified, it uses the channel  number  1.  If  the
	      Bluetooth address is also left out, it tries to read the data from the config file.

	      If  all is specified for the RFCOMM device, then all devices that have bind yes set
	      in the config will be bound.

       release <dev>
	      This command releases a defined RFCOMM binding.

	      If all is specified for the RFCOMM device, then all bindings will be removed.  This
	      command didn't care about the settings in the config file.
