NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     bthost -- look up Bluetooth host names and Protocol Service Multiplexor

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     bthost [-bhp] host_or_protocol

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The bthost utility looks for information about Bluetooth hosts and Protocol
 Service Multiplexor (PSM) values.  It gets this information from the
     /etc/bluetooth/hosts and /etc/bluetooth/protocols files.

     In host mode it simply converts between host names and Bluetooth
     addresses.  The argument can be either host name or Bluetooth address.
     The program first attempts to interpret it as Bluetooth address.  If this
     fails, it will treat it as host name.  A Bluetooth address consists of
     six hex bytes sparated by column, e.g. 01:02:03:04:05:06.	A host name
     consists of names separated by dots, e.g. my.cell.phone.

     In protocol mode it simply converts between Protocol Service Multiplexor
     names and assigned numbers.  The argument can be either Protocol Service
     Multiplexor name or assigned number.  The program first attempts to
     interpret it as assigned number.

     The options are as follows:

     -b      Produce brief output.

     -h      Display usage message and exit.

     -p      Activate protocol mode.

     The bthost utility will print results to the standard output and error
     messages to the standard error.  You may see output of different kinds.
     Here is an example that shows all of them:

	   % bthost localhost
	   Host localhost has address FF:FF:FF:00:00:00
	   % bthost ff:ff:ff:00:00:00
	   Host FF:FF:FF:00:00:00 has name localhost
	   % bthost -b localhost
	   % bthost -b ff:ff:ff:00:00:00
	   % bthost do.not.exists
	   do.not.exists: Unknown host
	   % bthost 0:0:0:0:0:0
	   00:00:00:00:00:00: Unknown host
	   % bthost -p sdp
	   Protocol/Service Multiplexor sdp has number 1
	   % bthost -p 3
	   Protocol/Service Multiplexor rfcomm has number 3
	   % bthost -bp HID-Control
	   % bthost -p foo
	   foo: Unknown Protocol/Service Multiplexor
