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

NAME
     btconfig -- configure bluetooth devices

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

DESCRIPTION
     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.

COMMANDS
     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.

     -switch      Disable Role Switching.

     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 connec-
                  tions.  By default, all packet types that the device sup-
                  ports are enabled, see bluetooth specifications for more
                  information if you want to change this.

     class class  Set class of device.  class is a 3 byte hex value the value
                  of which declares the device capabilities.  See Bluetooth
                  Assigned Numbers documents at https://www.bluetooth.org/ 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.

     rssi         Enable Remote Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) in inquiry
                  results.  This will only work if the device features indi-
                  cate <RSSI with inquiry result>.

     -rssi        Disable Remote Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) in inquiry
                  results.

     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 mil-
                  liseconds.

     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.

DIAGNOSTICS
     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.
