Bluetooth Option Configuration

The Zebra Setup Utilities provides a quick and easy way to configure a Bluetooth wireless connection with the printer.
  1. Double-click the
    Zebra Setup Utilities
    icon on your desktop.
  2. Connect a USB cable from your printer to the computer.
  3. On the first ZSU screen, highlight the printer displayed in the window and click the
    Configure Printer Connectivity
    where shown.
  4. Select
    on the
    Connectivity Type
    screen and click
  5. On the
    Bluetooth Settings
    screen, check
    to enable Bluetooth functionality.
  6. In the
    Friendly Name
    text field, set the Bluetooth name of the device. This name appears during device discovery and the central device will label the printer with this name.
  7. Set
    to On or Off to set whether the device will appear when central devices are looking for new devices to pair with.
  8. Set
    to On.
    This setting does not exist in Link-OS, but you need to turn it on if you want to enter a PIN in ZSU. The actual authentication setting on the printer is set in the
    Security Mode
    on the
    Advanced Settings
  9. The values set in the
    PIN field will vary depending on the Bluetooth version of the central device. If the central uses BT v2.0 or older, enter a numeric value in this field. You are prompted to enter this same value on the central device to verify the pairing.
    Security Mode
    2 or 3 in
    Advanced Settings
    should also be selected for PIN paring. In Advanced Settings, select Security Mode 2 or 3 for PIN paring.
    If the central device uses BT v2.1 or newer, this setting has no effect. BT v2.1 and newer uses Secure Simple Pairing (SSP) which does not require the use of a PIN.
    Clicking the
    Advanced Settings
    button will display the
    Advanced Bluetooth Settings
    window. For more information on
    Advanced Settings
    , refer to the Wired and Wireless Print Server Guide.
  10. Click
    to continue configuring the printer.
  11. The SGD commands to properly configure the printer are displayed. Click
    to continue to the
    Send Data
  12. On the
    Send Data
    screen, click the
    icon that you want to send the commands to, or click the
    button to save the commands to a file for reuse later.
  13. To send the commands to the printer, click the
    button. The printer will update and then reboot. You may disconnect the USB interface from the printer now.
  14. To complete the Bluetooth pairing process, enable Bluetooth device discovery on your central device and follow the directions provided with the master device.
