NAME

bluetooth-config – a script to manage config files for the bluetooth sub system

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS


bluetooth-config scan [-d device] [-n node]

DESCRIPTION

The bluetooth-config utility is an interactive script to provide a frontend to the complex bluetooth sub system daemons.

The following options are available:
-d
  Scan for a specific bluetooth device address.
-n
  Limit scan to a specific host controller. Hint: List all netgraph nodes with ‘/usr/sbin/ngctl list’.

bluetooth-config will help finding and setting up bluetooth controllers, scan for nearby bluetooth devices in pairing mode, lookup their names, allow mapping to friendly names in /etc/bluetooth/hosts, ask for the paring PIN, instrument hcsecd(8) to securely pair with new devices and, if the device offers HID endpoints such as mice or keyboards, configure and restart bthidd(8).

bluetooth-config can bring up any interface and daemon necessary for operation and, if a node is provided on command line, will do so automatically for that interface.

CAVEATS

bluetooth-config can not parse entries in hcsecd(8) config file and thus will ask the user to manually modify existing pairing PIN entries.

FILES

/etc/bluetooth/hosts
sysrc -n bthidd_config
sysrc -n hcsecd_config
 

EXAMPLES

bluetooth-config scan -n ubt0 -a 00:26:bb:7a:58:95 This will scan the bluetooth controller ubt0hci for a bluetooth device with the address 00:26:bb:7a:58:95, set up ubt0 if necessary and enter an interactive dialog to pair the new device. Since in this example a mouse is paired, bluetooth-config will interact with bthidd(8), enabling it if necessary and then write an HID descriptor to its config.

bluetooth-config scan This will scan all bluetooth controllers on the systems for bluetooth devices, prompting to bring up controllers or daemons along the way.
