  4. $ DUT_IP=<device-ip>
    $ scp -r bluez-setup-* user@$DUT_IP:
  5. Log into the target device:
  6. $ ssh user@$DUT_IP
  7. After log into the DUT, enter the test directory
  8. $ cd bluez-setup-*
  9. Note that the tarball may change depending on the release/branch being tested, please make sure to download the correct tarball for the release in question.
