sdpquery -- Service Discovery Protocol query utility
sdpquery [-NRX] [-d device] -a address command [parameters ...]
sdpquery [-NRX] [-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 retrieves complete Service Records as
directed and prints each record's attribute ID/value list 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-
-c path Specify path to the control socket. The default path is
-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.
-N Additionally display numerical values.
-R Display service attributes in raw (uninterpreted) format.
-X Display service attribute values in hex.
The currently supported commands in sdpquery are:
Browse for services. The group parameter is the UUID of the
group to browse. If omitted, the "Public Browse Group" is used.
Record handle [handle...]
Retrieve the Service Record with the given handle. Multiple han-
dles can be given.
