       l2ping - Send L2CAP echo request and receive answer


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


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


       -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.

       -c timeout
              Wait timeout seconds for the response.

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

              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
