BTCONFIG(8) System Manager's Manual BTCONFIG(8)
btconfig -- configure bluetooth devices
btconfig [-svz] [device [parameters]]
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
-pscan Disable Page Scan.
iscan Enable Inquiry Scan. This puts the device in Discoverable
-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
information 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
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 result>.
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
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 connections.
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
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.
