aqhbci-tool4 - Command line tools for setup, modification and debugging of HBCI settings.


aqhbci-tool4 [global options] <command> [command options]


The aqhbci-tool4(1) command can be used to setup and manage AqBanking’s HBCI users, customers and accounts.


Two common options need to be distinguished carefully from each other: "-c CUSTOMER_ID" refers to the German "Kunden-ID" or "Kundennummer". "-u USER_ID" refers to the German "Benutzerkennung". If your bank has specified both to you, you need to check carefully not to confuse one with the other.

This is version 6.2.10

All files in this directory are part of the AqBanking configuration. Even though mostly all files are in a simple plaintext syntax, you MUST NOT change anything in here without using the tools or libraries provided by AqBanking, except you know exactly what you are doing. Those files may be subject to changes in future AqBanking releases.


Probably lots, please post them to the mailing list (see Resources below) or file an issue in the issue tracker <> when you find them.


The AqBanking wiki <> provides useful help for setting up AqBanking, even though it is only available in German. On the AqBanking mailing lists <> you can give kudos to the developers or get your questions answered.
