       ciptool - Bluetooth Common ISDN Access Profile (CIP)


       ciptool [ options ] < command >


       ciptool  is  used  to set up, maintain, and inspect the CIP configuration of the Bluetooth
       subsystem in the Linux kernel.


       -h     Gives a list of possible commands.

       -i <hciX> | <bdaddr>
              The command is applied to device hciX , which must be the name or the address of an
              installed  Bluetooth  device.  If  not specified, the command will be use the first
              available Bluetooth device.


       show   Display information about the connected devices.

       search Search for Bluetooth devices and connect to first one that offers CIP support.

       connect <bdaddr> [psm]
              Connect the local device to the  remote  Bluetooth  device  on  the  specified  PSM
              number.  If no PSM is specified, it will use the SDP to retrieve it from the remote

       release [bdaddr]
              Release a connection to the specific device. If no address is given  and  only  one
              device is connected this will be released.

       loopback <bdaddr> [psm]
              Create  a connection to the remote device for Bluetooth testing.  This command will
              not provide a CAPI controller, because it is only  for  testing  the  CAPI  Message
              Transport Protocol.
