Resume Wikipedia de BlueZ

BlueZ est un logiciel qui met en œuvre la technologie sans fil Bluetooth sur le système d’exploitation Linux. Il a été créé au départ par Max Krasnyansky de la société Qualcomm. En 2001, la société décide de le publier sous une licence GNU GPL. BlueZ est ensuite devenu la mise en œuvre Bluetooth de référence pour Linux et a été intégré au noyau Linux.
La première pile Open Source de Bluetooth pour Linux avait été développée par Axis Communication et s’appelait OpenBT, mais en 2005, ce projet fut arrêté.
En 2005, le projet BlueZ a gagné le TuxMobil GNU/Linux Award pour sa contribution à l’amélioration des connexions réseaux sur des machines portables munies de Linux.

NAME

hciconfig – configure Bluetooth devices

SYNOPSIS

hciconfig -h
hciconfig [-a] hciconfig [-a] hciX [command [command parameters]]

DESCRIPTION

hciconfig is used to configure Bluetooth devices. hciX is the name of
a Bluetooth device installed in the system. If hciX is not given, hci‐
config prints name and basic information about all the Bluetooth
devices installed in the system. If hciX is given but no command is
given, it prints basic information on device hciX only. Basic informa‐
tion is interface type, BD address, ACL MTU, SCO MTU, flags (up, init,
running, raw, page scan enabled, inquiry scan enabled, inquiry, authen‐
tication enabled, encryption enabled).

OPTIONS

-h, –help
Gives a list of possible commands.

-a, –all
Other than the basic info, print features, packet type, link
policy, link mode, name, class, version.

COMMANDS
up Open and initialize HCI device.

down Close HCI device.

reset Reset HCI device.

rstat Reset statistic counters.

auth Enable authentication (sets device to security mode 3).

noauth Disable authentication.

encrypt
Enable encryption (sets device to security mode 3).

noencrypt
Disable encryption.

secmgr Enable security manager (current kernel support is limited).

nosecmgr
Disable security manager.

piscan Enable page and inquiry scan.

noscan Disable page and inquiry scan.

iscan Enable inquiry scan, disable page scan.

pscan Enable page scan, disable inquiry scan.

ptype [type] With no type , displays the current packet types. Otherwise, all
the packet types specified by type are set. type is a comma-
separated list of packet types, where the possible packet types
are DM1, DM3, DM5, DH1, DH3, DH5, HV1, HV2, HV3.

name [name] With no name, prints local name. Otherwise, sets local name to
name.

class [class] With no class, prints class of device. Otherwise, sets class of
device to class. class is a 24-bit hex number describing the

voice setting.

iac [iac] With no iac, prints the current IAC setting. Otherwise, sets the
IAC to iac.

inqtpl [level] With no level, prints out the current inquiry transmit power
level. Otherwise, sets inquiry transmit power level to level.

inqmode [mode] With no mode, prints out the current inquiry mode. Otherwise,
sets inquiry mode to mode.

inqdata [data] With no name, prints out the current inquiry data. Otherwise,
sets inquiry data to data.

inqtype [type] With no type, prints out the current inquiry scan type. Other‐
wise, sets inquiry scan type to type.

inqparams [win:int] With no win:int, prints inquiry scan window and interval. Other‐
wise, sets inquiry scan window to win slots and inquiry scan
interval to int slots.

pageparms [win:int] With no win:int, prints page scan window and interval. Other‐
wise, sets page scan window to win slots and page scan interval
to int slots.

pageto [to] With no to, prints page timeout. Otherwise, sets page timeout to
.I to slots.

afhmode [mode] With no mode, prints out the current AFH mode. Otherwise, sets
AFH mode to mode.

sspmode [mode] With no mode, prints out the current Simple Pairing mode. Other‐
wise, sets Simple Pairing mode to mode.

aclmtu mtu:pkt
Sets ACL MTU to to mtu bytes and ACL buffer size to pkt packets.

scomtu mtu:pkt
Sets SCO MTU to mtu bytes and SCO buffer size to pkt packets.

delkey
This command deletes the stored link key for bdaddr from the
device.

oobdata
Get local OOB data (invalidates previously read data).

commands
Display supported commands.

features
Display device features.

version
Display version information.

revision
Display revision information.

lm [mode] With no mode , prints link mode. MASTER or SLAVE mean, respec‐
tively, to ask to become master or to remain slave when a con‐
nection request comes in. The additional keyword ACCEPT means
that baseband connections will be accepted even if there are no
listening AF_BLUETOOTH sockets. mode is NONE or a comma-sepa‐
rated list of keywords, where possible keywords are MASTER and
ACCEPT . NONE sets link policy to the default behaviour of
remaining slave and not accepting baseband connections when
there are no listening AF_BLUETOOTH sockets. If MASTER is
present, the device will ask to become master if a connection
request comes in. If ACCEPT is present, the device will accept
baseband connections even when there are no listening AF_BLUE‐
