       l2ping - Send L2CAP echo request and receive answer


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


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


       -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).

              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
