DESCRIPTION

       hciconfig  is used to configure Bluetooth devices.  hciX is the name of a Bluetooth device
       installed in the system. If hciX is not given, hciconfig prints name and basic information
       about  all  the Bluetooth devices installed in the system. If hciX is given but no command
       is given, it prints basic information on device hciX only. Basic information is  interface
       type,  BD  address,  ACL  MTU,  SCO MTU, flags (up, init, running, raw, page scan enabled,
       inquiry scan enabled, inquiry, authentication enabled, encryption enabled).

       lm [mode]
              With  no  mode  ,  prints link mode.  MASTER or SLAVE mean, respectively, to ask to
              become master or to remain slave when a connection request comes in. The additional
              keyword  ACCEPT means that baseband  connections will be accepted even if there are
              no listening AF_BLUETOOTH sockets.  mode is  NONE  or  a  comma-separated  list  of
              keywords, where possible keywords are MASTER and ACCEPT .  NONE sets link policy to
              the default behaviour of remaining slave and  not  accepting  baseband  connections
              when  there are no listening AF_BLUETOOTH sockets. If MASTER is present, the device
              will ask to become master if a connection request comes in. If ACCEPT  is  present,
              the  device  will  accept  baseband  connections  even  when there are no listening
              AF_BLUETOOTH sockets.
