NAME

       btscanner - ncurses-based scanner for Bluetooth devices

SYNOPSIS

       btscanner [--help] [--cfg <file>] [--no-reset]

DESCRIPTION

       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.

OPTIONS

       --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.
