NAME

       rfcomm - RFCOMM configuration utility


SYNOPSIS

       rfcomm [ options ] < command > < dev >


DESCRIPTION

       rfcomm  is  used to set up, maintain, and inspect the RFCOMM configura-
       tion of the Bluetooth subsystem in the Linux kernel. If no  command  is
       given, or if the option -a is used, rfcomm prints information about the
       configured RFCOMM devices.


OPTIONS

       -h     Gives a list of possible commands.

       -a     Prints information about all configured RFCOMM devices.

       -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 speci-
              fied, the command will be  use  the  first  available  Bluetooth
              device.


COMMANDS

       show <dev>
              Display the information about the specified device.

       connect <dev> [bdaddr] [channel]
              Connect  the RFCOMM device to the remote Bluetooth device on the
              specified channel. If no channel is specified, it will  use  the
              channel  number 1. If also the Bluetooth address is left out, it
              tries to read the data from the config file. This command can be
              terminated with the key sequence CTRL-C.

       listen <dev> [channel]
              Listen  on  a specified RFCOMM channel for incoming connections.
              If no channel is specified, it will use the  channel  number  1.
              This command can be terminated with the key sequence CTRL-C.

       bind <dev> [bdaddr] [channel]
              This  binds  the RFCOMM device to a remote Bluetooth device. The
              command did not establish a connection to the remote device,  it
              only  creates  the  binding.  The connection will be established
              right after an application tries to open the RFCOMM  device.  If
              no channel number is specified, it uses the channel number 1. If
              the Bluetooth address is also left out, it  tries  to  read  the
              data from the config file.

              If all is specified for the RFCOMM device, then all devices that
              have bind yes set in the config will be bound.

       release <dev>
              This command releases a defined RFCOMM binding.

              If all is specified for the RFCOMM  device,  then  all  bindings
              will be removed.  This command didn’t care about the settings in
              the config file.
