NAME

       l2ping - Send L2CAP echo request and receive answer

SYNOPSIS

       l2ping [-i <hciX>] [-s size] [-c count] [-t timeout] [-d delay] [-f] [-r] [-v] bd_addr

DESCRIPTION

       L2ping sends a L2CAP echo request to the Bluetooth MAC address bd_addr given in dotted hex
       notation.

OPTIONS

       -i <hciX>
              The command is applied to device hciX , which must be  the  name  of  an  installed
              Bluetooth  device (X = 0, 1, 2, ...)  If not specified, the command will be sent to
              the first available Bluetooth device.

       -s size
              The size of the data packets to be sent.

       -c count
              Send count number of packets then exit.

       -t timeout
              Wait timeout seconds for the response.

       -d delay
              Wait delay seconds between pings.

       -f     Kind of flood ping. Use with care! It reduces the delay time between packets to 0.

       -r     Reverse ping (gnip?). Send echo response instead of echo request.

       -v     Verify response payload is identical to request payload. It  is  not  required  for
              remote stacks to return the request payload, but most stacks do (including Bluez).

       bd_addr
              The   Bluetooth   MAC   address   to   be   pinged  in  dotted  hex  notation  like
              01:02:03:ab:cd:ef or 01:EF:cd:aB:02:03
