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 SDP database.


   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 SDP database 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,

   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 SDP database.

             You  can  specify a handle for this record using the --handle

             You can specify a channel to add the  service  on  using  the
             --channel option.

             NOTE:  Local  adapters  configuration will not be updated and
             this command should be used only for SDP testing.

   del record_handle
             Remove a service from the local SDP database.

             NOTE: Local adapters configuration will not  be  updated  and
             this command should be used only for SDP testing.

   get [--tree] [--raw] [--xml] [--bdaddr bdaddr] record_handle
             Retrieve a service from the local SDP database.

   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.
