Pairing over network (wireless pairing) is only supported by Apple TV devices. To perform a wireless pairing, you need to use the -w command line switch.
Make sure to put the device into pairing mode first by opening Settings > Remotes and Devices > Remote App and Devices.
The pairable device will become visible with a special UDID, and then you can run idevicepair like this:
idevicepair -u fffc8:ab:cd:12:34:56fff -w pair
idevicepair will then ask for the PIN that the device is displaying and continues with the pairing once entered.
Please note that wireless pairing is currently not supported on Linux.
