btscanner - ncurses-based scanner for Bluetooth devices
btscanner [--help] [--cfg <file>] [--no-reset]
This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution
because the original program does not have a manual page.
btscanner is a tool designed specifically to extract as much
information as possible from a Bluetooth device without the requirement
to pair. A detailed information screen extracts HCI and SDP
information, and maintains an open connection to monitor the RSSI and
link quality. btscanner is based on the BlueZ Bluetooth stack, which
is included with recent Linux kernels, and the BlueZ toolset. btscanner
also contains a complete listing of the IEEE OUI numbers and class
lookup tables. Using the information gathered from these sources it is
possible to make educated guesses as to the host device type.
--help Show a help text and exit.
--cfg <file> Use <file> as the config file.
--no-reset Do not reset the Bluetooth adapter before scanning.
