you can configure bluethooth from the webserver for the printer.

you access this by typing in the your web browser.

http://printers ip address

you can get the ip address from the printer control panel. One of the options will be status or information.

for bluethooth setup go to the network configuration page, and one of the options under there will be bluethooth.

you can enter what HP calls a passkey which is like a pin number, and use the same number on the bluetooth device, or change its mode to low security, then you wont need to use a passcode to print to it.

hope this helps
