       ciptool - Bluetooth Common ISDN Access Profile (CIP)


       ciptool [ options ] < command >


       ciptool  is used to set up, maintain, and inspect the CIP configuration
       of the Bluetooth subsystem in the Linux kernel.


       -h     Gives a list of possible commands.

       -i <hciX> | <bdaddr>
              The command is applied to device hciX , which must be  the  name
              or  the  address  of  an  installed  Bluetooth  device.  If  not
              specified, the command will be use the first available Bluetooth


       show   Display information about the connected devices.

       search Search  for  Bluetooth  devices  and  connect  to first one that
              offers CIP support.

       connect <bdaddr> [psm]
              Connect the local device to the remote Bluetooth device  on  the
              specified  PSM  number.  If no PSM is specified, it will use the
              SDP to retrieve it from the remote device.

       release [bdaddr]
              Release a connection to the specific device. If  no  address  is
              given and only one device is connected this will be released.

       loopback <bdaddr> [psm]
              Create  a connection to the remote device for Bluetooth testing.
              This command will not provide a CAPI controller, because  it  is
              only for testing the CAPI Message Transport Protocol.
