NAME

bt-adapter - a bluetooth agent

SYNOPSIS

bt-agent [OPTION...]
Help Options:
-h, --help
Application Options:
-c, --capability=<capability>
-p, --pin
-d, --daemon

DESCRIPTION

This interactive utility is used to manage incoming Bluetooth requests (eg. request of pincode, request of authorize a connection/service request, etc).

OPTIONS

-h, --help
Show help
-c, --capability <capability>
Specify the input and output capabilities of the agent.
`capability` can be one of:
DisplayOnly
DisplayYesNo (default)
KeyboardOnly
NoInputNoOutput
(if this option does not defined - `DisplayYesNo' will be used)
-p, --pin <file path<gt>
Use a file that holds a list of authorization codes for each device by name or mac address.
The contents of the file should be in this format:
AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF 123456
RemoteDeviceName * (accept any pin code)
If a pin file is included, it will check the passkey of the pairing device against the key included in the file. It will automatically authorize the device if the key matches, otherwise it will request the user for manual authorization.
-d, --daemon
Run the agent as a background process (as a daemon).
The agent will rely on a pin file and request no manual user authorization. Any devices that attempt to pair without a valid passkey defined in the pin file will be automatically rejected.
