BTHOST(1)		  BSD General Commands Manual		     BTHOST(1)

NAME
     bthost -- look up Bluetooth host names and	Protocol Service Multiplexor
     values

SYNOPSIS
     bthost [-bhp] host_or_protocol

DESCRIPTION
     The bthost	utility	looks for information about Bluetooth hosts and	Proto-
     col Service Multiplexor (PSM) values.  It gets this information from the
     /etc/bluetooth/hosts and /etc/bluetooth/protocols files.

     In	host mode, it simply converts between the host names and Bluetooth ad-
     dresses.  The argument can	be either a host name or a Bluetooth address.
     The program first attempts	to interpret it	as a Bluetooth address.	 If
     this fails, it will treat it as a host name.  A Bluetooth address con-
     sists of six hex bytes separated by a colon, e.g.,	"01:02:03:04:05:06".
     A host name consists of names separated by	dots, e.g., "my.cell.phone".

     In	protocol mode, it simply converts between the Protocol Service Multi-
     plexor names and assigned numbers.	 The argument can be either a Protocol
     Service Multiplexor name or an assigned number.  The program first	at-
     tempts to interpret it as an assigned number.

     The options are as	follows:

     -b	     Produce brief output.

     -h	     Display usage message and exit.

     -p	     Activate protocol mode.

     The bthost	utility	will print results to the standard output, and error
     messages to the standard error.  An output	can be quite different,	here
     is	an example that	demonstrates all of the	possibilities:

	   % bthost localhost
	   Host	localhost has address FF:FF:FF:00:00:00
	   % bthost ff:ff:ff:00:00:00
	   Host	FF:FF:FF:00:00:00 has name localhost
	   % bthost -b localhost
	   FF:FF:FF:00:00:00
	   % bthost -b ff:ff:ff:00:00:00
	   localhost
	   % bthost do.not.exists
	   do.not.exists: Unknown host
	   % bthost 0:0:0:0:0:0
	   00:00:00:00:00:00: Unknown host
	   % bthost -p sdp
	   Protocol/Service Multiplexor	sdp has	number 1
	   % bthost -p 3
	   Protocol/Service Multiplexor	rfcomm has number 3
	   % bthost -bp	HID-Control
	   17
	   % bthost -p foo
	   foo:	Unknown	Protocol/Service Multiplexor

FILES
     /etc/bluetooth/hosts
     /etc/bluetooth/protocols

EXIT STATUS
     The bthost	utility	exits 0	on success, and	>0 if an error occurs.
