btscanner is a tool designed specifically to extract as much information as possible from a Bluetooth device
without the requirement to pair. A detailed information screen extracts HCI and SDP information, and maintains an
open connection to monitor the RSSI and link quality. btscanner is based on the BlueZ Bluetooth stack, which is
included with recent Linux kernels, and the BlueZ toolset. btscanner also contains a complete listing of the IEEE
OUI numbers and class lookup tables. Using the information gathered from these sources it is possible to make
educated guesses as to the host device type.
--help Show a help text and exit.
--cfg <file> Use <file> as the config file.
--no-reset Do not reset the Bluetooth adapter before scanning.
