BTHIDD(8)		  BSD System Manager's Manual		     BTHIDD(8)

NAME
     bthidd — Bluetooth HID daemon

SYNOPSIS
     bthidd -h
     bthidd [-a BD_ADDR] [-c file] [-H file] [-p file] [-t val]

DESCRIPTION
     The bthidd daemon handles remote Bluetooth HID devices.

     The options are as follows:

     -a BD_ADDR
	     Specify the local address to listen on.  By default, the server
	     will listen on ANY address.  The address can be specified as
	     BD_ADDR or name.  If a name was specified, the bthidd daemon will
	     attempt to resolve the name via bt_gethostbyname(3).

     -c file
	     Specify path to the configuration file.  The default path is
	     /etc/bluetooth/bthidd.conf.

     -d	     Do not detach from the controlling terminal, i.e., run in fore‐
	     ground.

     -H file
	     Specify path to the known HIDs file.  The default path is
	     /var/db/bthidd.hids.

     -h	     Display usage message and exit.

     -p file
	     Specify path to the PID file.  The default path is
	     /var/run/bthidd.pid.

     -t val  Specify client rescan interval in seconds.	 The bthidd daemon
	     will periodically scan for newly configured Bluetooth HID devices
	     or disconnected “passive” Bluetooth HID devices and will attempt
	     to establish an outgoing connection.  The default rescan interval
	     is 10 seconds.

CAVEATS
     Any Bluetooth HID device that has HUP_KEYBOARD or HUP_CONSUMER entries in
     its descriptor is considered as “keyboard”.  For each “keyboard” Blue‐
     tooth HID device, the bthidd daemon will use a separate instance of the
     virtual keyboard interface vkbd(4).  Therefore the kbdmux(4) driver must
     be used to properly multiplex input from multiple keyboards.

KNOWN LIMITATIONS
     The bthidd daemon currently does not handle key auto repeat and double
     click mouse events.  Those events work under X(7) just fine, but not in
     text console.

     This manual page needs more work.	A manual page documenting the format
     of the /etc/bluetooth/bthidd.conf configuration file is needed as well.

FILES
     /etc/bluetooth/bthidd.conf
     /var/db/bthidd.hids
     /var/run/bthidd.pid
