sdptool — control and interrogate SDP servers

Synopsis

sdptool [options] {command} [command parameters ...]

Description

sdptool provides the interface for performing SDP queries on Bluetooth devices, and administering a local SDP database.

Commands

The following commands are available. In all cases bdaddr specifies the device to search or browse. If local is used for bdaddr, then the local SDP database is searched.

Services are identified and manipulated with a 4-byte record_handle (NOT the service name). To find a service's record_handle, look for the "Service RecHandle" line in the search or browse results

Known service names are DID, SP, DUN, LAN, FAX, OPUSH, FTP, HS, HF, HFAG, SAP, NAP, GN, PANU, HCRP, HID, CIP, A2SRC, A2SNK, AVRCT, AVRTG, UDIUE, UDITE and SYNCML.
