Please read this link related to bluetooth/udp

Maybe this could help

There are apps to control bluetooth devices via udp (like the android app:

I have not tried but would be interested in case of success

 In fact any B/T serial device other
 than the mouse or a keyboardwill not be accessible. 
 I've posted (politely
