Hello ,

I am creating a little network management application for my own use and trying to use sysctl to get my bluetooth address on mac os x dynamically , so far with not much success.

I am trying to retrieve it using sysctl , but I am not sure what parameters to send .

Can someone here please help me out ?

Regards ,

James Roeiter

I dont think the sysctl unix commands offer any info on your systems bluetooth address.

Apple have a specific framework to work with bluetooth devices, I've posted a link below,
I hav'nt used ths framework myself, so I cant offer any advise with using it.

it would be worth trying some google searches for bluetooth unix commands.

Good luck with it.
