RFCOMM_SPPD(1)          FreeBSD General Commands Manual         RFCOMM_SPPD(1)

NAME
     rfcomm_sppd - RFCOMM Serial Port Profile daemon

SYNOPSIS
     rfcomm_sppd [-bh] -a BD_ADDR -c channel -t tty

DESCRIPTION
     The rfcomm_sppd utility is a Serial Port Profile daemon.  It opens RFCOMM
     connection to the specified server's BD_ADDR and channel.  Once
     connection is established, the rfcomm_sppd utility provides access to the
     server's remote serial port via pty(4) interface.

     The rfcomm_sppd utility opens both master and slave pseudo terminals.
     This is done to ensure that RFCOMM connection stays open until
     rfcomm_sppd is terminated.  The data received from the master pseudo
     terminal are sent over the RFCOMM connection.  The data received from the
     RFCOMM connection are written into master pseudo terminal.  The
     application in its turn opens the slave pseudo terminal and operates on
     it just like it would operate over the standard serial port.

     The options are as follows:

     -a BD_ADDR
             This required option specifies the remote BD_ADDR of the RFCOMM
             server.

     -b      Detach from the controlling terminal, i.e., run in background.

     -c channel
             This option specifies RFCOMM channel to connect to.  The channel
             must provide Serial Port service.  If channel was not specified
             then rfcomm_sppd utility will try to obtain RFCOMM channel via
             Service Discovery Protocol from the server.

     -h      Display usage message and exit.

     -t tty  Slave pseudo tty name.

EXAMPLES
           rfcomm_sppd -a 00:01:02:03:04:05 -c 1 -t /dev/ttyp1

     Will start the rfcomm_sppd utility and open RFCOMM connection to the
     server at 00:01:02:03:04:05 and channel 1.  Once the connection has been
     established, /dev/ttyp1 can be used to talk to the remote serial port on
     the server.

FILES
     /dev/pty[p-sP-S][0-9a-v]      master pseudo terminals
     /dev/tty[p-sP-S][0-9a-v]      slave pseudo terminals

DIAGNOSTICS
     The rfcomm_sppd utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

BUGS
     Please report if found.
