sdpquery -- SDP query utility


sdpquery -h sdpquery [-d device] -a address command [parameters ...] sdpquery [-c path] -l command [parameters ...]


The sdpquery utility attempts to query the specified Service Discovery Protocol (SDP) server. Remote SDP servers are identified by their address. Connection to the local SDP server is made via the control socket. The sdpquery utility uses Service Search Attribute Requests and prints results to standard output and error messages to standard error. The options are as follows: -a address Connect to the remote device with the specified address. The address can be specified as BD_ADDR or a name. If a name was specified, the sdpquery utility attempts to resolve the name via bt_gethostbyname(3). If no remote address is given, sdpquery attempts to contact a local SDP server via the con- trol socket. -c path Specify path to the control socket. The default path is /var/run/sdp. -d device Connect from the local device with the specified address. The device can be specified by BD_ADDR or device name. See btconfig(8) for a list of devices available. If no device is specified, the sdpquery utility will use the best available. -l Query the local SDP server via the control socket. -h Display usage message and exit. The currently supported commands in sdpquery are: Browse [group] Browse for services. The group parameter is a 16-bit UUID of the group to browse. If omitted, the Public Browse Group. is used. Search service Search for the service. The service parameter is a 16-bit UUID of the service to search for. For the fol- lowing services it is possible to use service name instead of service UUID: CIP Common ISDN Access CTP Cordless Telephony DUN DialUp Networking FAX Fax FTRN OBEX File Transfer GN Group ad-hoc Network HID Human Interface Device HF Handsfree HSET Headset LAN LAN Access Using PPP NAP Network Access Point OPUSH OBEX Object Push PANU Personal Area Networking User SP Serial Port
