BTPIN(1)                NetBSD General Commands Manual                BTPIN(1)

NAME
     btpin -- Bluetooth PIN utility

SYNOPSIS
     btpin [-P] [-d device] [-s path] {-p pin | -r [-l len]} -a address

DESCRIPTION
     The btpin utility is used to register a temporary PIN with the bthcid(8)
     daemon for the purposes of pairing Bluetooth devices.  The PIN will be
     valid for 5 minutes or until used, whichever comes first.

     The options are as follows:

     -a address
             Specify the remote device address.  The address can be specified
             as BD_ADDR or a name.  If a name was specified, the btpin utility
             attempts to resolve the name via bt_gethostbyname(3).

     -d device
             Specify the local device address.  The device can be specified by
             BD_ADDR or device name.  See btconfig(8) for a list of devices
             available.  If no device is specified, the PIN will be valid for
             any local device.

     -l len  Specify length of PIN to generate, where 1 <= len <= 16.

     -P      Pair with remote device.  btpin will attempt to open an authenti-
             cated L2CAP connection to the Service Discovery Service on the
             remote device, to force immediate pairing.

     -p pin  The PIN to register.  The PIN may be up to 16 bytes in length.

     -r      Generate a random PIN, the default length is 4 bytes.

     -s path
             Specify path to the control socket.  The default path is
             /var/run/bthcid.

EXIT STATUS
     The btpin utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
