BLUETOOTH.DEVICE.CONF(5)    BSD File Formats Manual   BLUETOOTH.DEVICE.CONF(5)

NAME
     bluetooth.device.conf — Bluetooth device configuration file

DESCRIPTION
     Bluetooth device configuration framework provides ability to adjust cer‐
     tain Bluetooth device parameters on per-device basis.

     Bluetooth device configuration files are plain text files that should
     conform to basic sh(1) syntax.  Even though Bluetooth device are not
     exactly shell scripts, they are parsed and passed through shell eval com‐
     mand.  This makes it possible to use various shell tricks in the Blue‐
     tooth device configuration files.

     The /etc/rc.d/bluetooth script is used to start and stop Bluetooth
     devices.  This script is not executed by default when system boots.  It
     is called by devd(8) in response to Bluetooth device arrival and depar‐
     ture events.  It is possible to execute this script by hand if required.
     The script accepts Bluetooth device driver name as an extra parameter.

     The system wide Bluetooth device configuration file is called
     /etc/defaults/bluetooth.device.conf.  Configuration parameters set in the
     system wide Bluetooth device configuration file apply to every Bluetooth
     device connected to the system.

     Configuration parameters overrides for the specific Bluetooth device
     should be placed in the /etc/bluetooth/DEVICE_DRIVER_NAME.conf file.
     Where DEVICE_DRIVER_NAME is the device driver name of the Bluetooth
     device.

     The following list provides a name and short description for each vari‐
     able that can be set in a Bluetooth device configuration file.

     authentication_enable
		 (bool) The authentication_enable parameter controls if the
		 device requires to authenticate the remote device at connec‐
		 tion setup.  If set to “YES”, the device will try to authen‐
		 ticate the other device at connection setup.  Bluetooth
		 authentication requests are handled by hcsecd(8) daemon.

     class	 (str) The class parameter is used to indicate the capabili‐
		 ties of the device to other devices.  For more details see
		 “Assigned Numbers - Bluetooth Baseband” document.

     connectable
		 (bool) The connectable parameter controls whether or not the
		 device should periodically scan for page attempts from other
		 devices.  If set to “YES”, the device will periodically scan
		 for page attempts from other devices.

     discoverable
		 (bool) The discoverable parameter controls whether or not the
		 device should periodically scan for inquiry requests from
		 other devices.	 If set to “YES”, the device will periodically
		 scan for inquiry requests from other devices.

     encryption_mode
		 (str) The encryption_mode parameter controls if the device
		 requires encryption to the remote device at connection setup.
		 At connection setup, only the devices with the
		 authentication_enable parameter enabled and encryption_mode
		 parameter enabled will try to encrypt the connection to the
		 other device.	Possible values are “NONE” encryption dis‐
		 abled, “P2P” encryption for only point-to-point packets, or
		 “ALL” encryption for both point-to-point and broadcast pack‐
		 ets.

     hci_debug_level
		 (int) HCI node debug level.  Higher values mean more verbose
		 output.

     l2cap_debug_level
		 (int) L2CAP node debug level.	Higher values mean more ver‐
		 bose output.

     local_name	 (str) The local_name parameter provides the ability to modify
		 the user friendly name for the device.

     role_switch
		 (bool) The role_switch parameter controls whether the local
		 device should perform role switch.  By default, if role
		 switch is supported, the local device will try to perform
		 role switch and become Master on incoming connection.	Some
		 devices do not support role switch and thus incoming connec‐
		 tions from such devices will fail.  If role switch is dis‐
		 abled then accepting device will remain Slave.

FILES
     /etc/defaults/bluetooth.device.conf
     /etc/rc.d/bluetooth

EXAMPLES
     The /etc/bluetooth/ubt0.conf file should be used to specify configuration
     parameters overrides for the first USB Bluetooth device (device driver
     name is ubt0).

     The /etc/bluetooth/ubt1.conf file should be used to specify configuration
     parameters overrides for the second USB Bluetooth device.
