NAME

l2ping – Send L2CAP echo request and receive answer

SYNOPSIS

l2ping [-i ] [-s size] [-c count] [-t timeout] [-d delay] [-f] [-r] [-v] bd_addr

DESCRIPTION

L2ping sends a L2CAP echo request to the Bluetooth MAC address bd_addr
given in dotted hex notation.

OPTIONS

-i
The command is applied to device hciX , which must be the name
of an installed Bluetooth device (X = 0, 1, 2, …) If not
specified, the command will be sent to the first available Blue‐
tooth device.

-s size
The size of the data packets to be sent.

-c count
Send count number of packets then exit.

-t timeout
Wait timeout seconds for the response.

-d delay
Wait delay seconds between pings.

-f Kind of flood ping. Use with care! It reduces the delay time
between packets to 0.

-r Reverse ping (gnip?). Send echo response instead of echo
request.

-v Verify response payload is identical to request payload. It is
not required for remote stacks to return the request payload,
but most stacks do (including Bluez).

bd_addr
The Bluetooth MAC address to be pinged in dotted hex notation
like 01:02:03:ab:cd:ef or 01:EF:cd:aB:02:03
