       sdptool — control and interrogate SDP servers


       sdptool [options]  {command}  [command parameters ...]


       sdptool  provides the interface for performing SDP queries on Bluetooth
       devices, and administering a local sdpd.


       The following commands are available.  In all  cases  bdaddr  specifies
       the  device to search or browse.  If local is used for bdaddr, then the
       local sdpd is searched.

       Services are identified and manipulated  with  a  4-byte  record_handle
       (NOT  the  service  name).  To find a service’s record_handle, look for
       the "Service RecHandle" line in the search or browse results

       search [--bdaddr bdaddr] [--tree] [--raw] [--xml] service_name
                 Search for services..

                 Known service names are DID, SP, DUN, LAN, FAX,  OPUSH,  FTP,
                 HS,  HF,  HFAG,  SAP,  NAP,  GN, PANU, HCRP, HID, CIP, A2SRC,
                 A2SNK, AVRCT, AVRTG, UDIUE, UDITE and SYNCML.

       browse [--tree] [--raw] [--xml] [bdaddr]
                 Browse all available services on the device  specified  by  a
                 Bluetooth address as a parameter.

       records [--tree] [--raw] [--xml] bdaddr
                 Retrieve all possible service records.

       add [ --handle=N --channel=N ]
                 Add a service to the local sdpd.

                 You  can  specify a handle for this record using the --handle

                 You can specify a channel to add the  service  on  using  the
                 --channel option.

       del record_handle
                 Remove a service from the local sdpd.

       get [--tree] [--raw] [--xml] [--bdaddr bdaddr] record_handle
                 Retrieve a service from the local sdpd.

       setattr record_handle attrib_id attrib_value
                 Set or add an attribute to an SDP record.

       setseq record_handle attrib_id attrib_values
                 Set or add an attribute sequence to an SDP record.
