       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

       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 option.

                 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.
