Keypad Modes
Numeric Mode
Numeric mode is the keypad default. When the keypad is not in CTRL, ALT or Alpha mode (i.e., the Orange key is
not enabled), each numeric key represents its associated number and no multi-tapping a key is required.
Alphabetic Mode
The keypad goes into alphabetic (alpha) mode when the orange key is pressed and remains in alpha mode until
the orange key is pressed a second time. A solid orange dot appears in the device display when alpha mode is
active and disappears when it is turned off.
In this mode, multi-tapping a key generates the letters on the respective key; lower case letters first, followed by
upper case letters. For example, in alpha mode the '2' key cycles through 'a', 'b', 'c', 'A', 'B', and 'C' depending on
the number of taps.
Function Key Mode
The keypad goes into function key mode when the blue key is pressed. ‘F’ keys, displayed on the keypad in blue,
are accessible in un-shifted mode only (when alpha mode is off). If the keypad is currently in alpha mode (an
orange dot appears in the device display) and 'F1' is required, press the orange key to exit alpha mode and return
to un-shifted mode; press the blue key; press the appropriate number key (e.g., press number '1' for 'F1', press
number '2' for 'F2', etc.).
ALT/CTRL Plus Character
Some applications support shortcut keys (hot keys), such as ALT+F, CTRL+C.
To use shortcut key combinations:
1.
In un-shifted mode, press the blue key one time.
2.
Press the left soft key (ALT) or right soft key (CTRL).
3.
Press the orange key to enter alpha mode.
4.
Multi-tap the appropriate key to select the desired letter (e.g., multi-tap the ‘3’ key three times to select lower
case 'f').
5.
Press the orange key again to exit alpha mode.
When the orange key is pressed the second time to exit alpha mode, the key combination generates (e.g., ALT+F).
The blue key is automatically released after exiting the alpha mode.

Supplying Power to the Cradle
The cradle receives power from one of two sources:
• An external power supply.
• When connected to the host through an interface cable that supplies power.
The cradle detects whether the host or the external supply is supplying power. It always draws power from the
external supply when available, regardless of the presence of power from a host.
Using the USB Interface to Supply Power
When the cradle is connected to the host via the USB interface, the USB port can power the cradle so that an
external power supply is not necessary. Note that powering from a USB host charges the device at a slower rate
than when charging from an external power supply.
NOTE
It is recommended to use a 12V power supply to accelerate charge times.
Connecting the STB20XX Cradle
IMPORTANT Connect the interface cable and power supply (if necessary) in the following order to ensure proper
operation of the device and cradle.
1.
Insert the host interface cable into the cradle's host port.
2.
Connect the other end of the host interface cable to the host.
3.
If necessary, connect the appropriate cable to the power supply and an AC power source (if the interface
requires, or to allow fast charging of the device).
4.
If applicable, insert the power supply cable ferrite into the support features on the cradle bottom and run the
host and power cables into their respective cable grooves.
5.
For forklift cradles only, connect the forklift power supply to the cradle's power port, if applicable. Insert the
power supply cable ferrite into the support features on the cradle bottom and run the host and power cables
into their respective cable grooves, or use cable ties to secure them to the mounting plate after attaching it to
the cradle. For more information about mounting options and procedures, refer to the documentation included
with the cradle.
6.
For Bluetooth cradles only, pair the device to the cradle by scanning the pairing bar code on the cradle.
7.
If necessary, scan the appropriate host bar code (for non-autodetected interfaces). Refer to the specific host
chapter in the MT2090/MT2070 User Guide (p/n 72E-117859-xx).
NOTE
Disconnect the power supply before changing host cables, or the device may not recognize the new host.
Different cables are required for different hosts. The connectors illustrated in each host chapter are
examples only. The connectors may be different from those illustrated, but the steps to connect the device
remain the same

Chapter 3 ActiveSync
Introduction
To communicate with the host computer, install Microsoft ActiveSync (version 4.0 or higher) on the host computer.
Changes made on the device or host computer appear in both places after synchronization.
ActiveSync software:
• Allows working with device-compatible host applications on the host computer. ActiveSync replicates data
from the device so the host application can view, enter, and modify data on the device.
• Synchronizes files between the device and host computer, converting the files to the correct format.
• Backs up the data stored on the device. Synchronization is a one-step procedure that ensures the data is
always safe and up-to-date.
• Copies (rather than synchronizes) files between the device and host computer.
• Controls when synchronization occurs by selecting a synchronization mode, e.g., set to synchronize
continually while the device is connected to the host computer, or set to only synchronize on command.
• Selects the types of information to synchronize and control how much data is synchronized.
Setup
The device communicates with a host PC via ActiveSync in an STB 2000 cradle with a USB cable connection, or
with a direct USB cable connection from device to host PC. Chapter 2, Accessories provides information about
setting up the device/cradle to communicate.
NOTE
The STB2078 cradle does not support ActiveSync.

The EMDK is a development tool used to create native C applications for devices. It includes documentation,
header files (.H), and library files (.LIB) for native code application development that targets Motorola value-add
APIs.
The Windows CE Platform SDK for the MT2070/MT2090 is used in conjunction with the EMDK for eVC4 to create
Windows CE applications for the MT2070/MT2090 device. The Platform SDK installs a new Windows CE device
type and its associated libraries onto the development PC. This new device is added to the Active WCE
Configuration field of Microsoft eMbedded Visual C++ 4.0 (eVC4). You may also use the standard CE 5.0 SDK
from Microsoft.
The Device Configuration Package (DCP) is required to create and download hex images that represent flash
partitions to the device. The DCP includes the user documentation, flash partitions, Terminal Configuration
Manager (TCM) and the associated TCM scripts, and Symbol Configuration Manager (SCM).

IPL
See Chapter 6, Creating/Loading Hex Images to download customized flash file system partitions to the device and
load hex files to the flash memory of the device using IPL.
Chapter 6 Creating/Loading Hex Images
Introduction
Terminal Configuration Manager (TCM) is an application used to customize flash file system partitions for the
device. The most common use is to create an application partition hex file that contains the customer's application.
TCM can also be used to load hex files to the flash memory of the device.
The program resident on the device that receives the hex file and burns it to the flash memory is called Initial
Program Loader (IPL).
TCM scripts control the customization of partitions. The scripts contain all of the necessary information for building
an image. The script is a list of copy commands specifying the files to copy from the development computer to the
partition.
TCM works with a pair of directory windows, one displaying the script and the other displaying the source files
resident on the development computer. Use standard drag and drop operations to add and delete from the script
window.
The DCP includes scripts used by Motorola to build the standard factory installed Platform and Application
partitions provided on the device. The standard Platform partition contains drivers while the Application partition
contains demo applications and optional components. The standard TCM scripts can be found in the following
folder: C:\Program Files\Symbol Windows CE EMDK (MT2070/MT2090)\SymbolPlatforms
\MT2070/MT2090\TCMScripts.
NOTE
Before creating a script to build a hex image, identify the files required (system files, drivers, applications,
etc.) and locate the files’ source directories to make the script building process easier.
The required processes for building a hex image in TCM include:
• Starting TCM
• Defining script properties
• Creating the script for the hex image
• Building the image
• Sending the hex image
• Creating a splash screen
• Flash storage.

Creating the Script for the Hex Image
On start-up, TCM displays the TCM window with the Script1 window and File Explorer window pointing to the
following directory:
\Program Files\Symbol Device Configuration Packages\MT2070/MT2090w\v0.1\TCMScripts\
The Script1 window directory pane displays two partitions: Platform and Application. Depending on the type of flash
chip, the number of partitions may change. Files can be added to each of the partitions. TCM functionality includes:
• Opening a new or existing script file
• Copying components to the script window
• Saving the script file.
Opening a New or Existing Script
A script file can be created from scratch or based on an existing script file. Click Create to create a new script or
click Open to open an existing script (for example, a script provided in the MT2070/MT2090 DCP. If changes are
made to an existing script saving the changes overwrites the original script. To avoid this use the Save As function
to save the script using a different file name.
Updating TCM 1.X Scripts
To upgrade script files created with older versions of TCM to TCM 2.0 scripts click Open to open the existing script.
The Conversion window displays.
Figure 6-4 Conversion Window - Upgrading to TCM 2.0
In the Select a Version field, select a version and then click OK.
Copying Components to the Script
Script contents are managed using standard file operations such as New Folder, Delete, and Rename. To add
items to the script files and folders in the File Explorer window and drag them to the Script window. The File
Explorer window supports standard windows; to select multiple files click while holding the SHIFT or CTRL keys.
Saving the Script
To save modifications to a script file use the Save or the Save As function. Saving changes to an existing script
over writes the original script. To use a Motorola-supplied standard script as a base and save the changes in a new
script, use the Save As function.
6-6
Symbol MT2070/MT2090 Integrator Guide
Building the Image
After creating the script, build the hex image defined by the script.
As part of the build, TCM performs a check on the script which verifies that all files referenced in the script exist.
This check is important for previously created scripts to ensure that files referenced in the script are still in the
designated locations.
To build scripts:
1.
Click Build on the TCM toolbar. The Configure Build window displays.
Figure 6-5 Configure Build Window
2.
Select the items (partitions) to build using the check box(es) to the left of each named partition.
3.
Specify the Build Path to define where to store all built partitions.
4.
Select the hex image check box to reduce the size and speed up the download.
5.
Click OK and follow the on-screen instructions.
If building the splash screen partitions, a prompt appears requesting both the source bitmap file and the
destination hex file.
6.
TCM perform a check and if there are no errors, creates the partition hex files.
If the build fails, TCM does not create the hex files and displays an error message. Two of the most common
reasons for a build failure are:
• Files defined in the script can not be found. This error can occur when the files referenced by the script are
no longer stored on the development computer or the folders where they are stored were renamed.
• The total amount of flash memory space required by the script exceeds the image size. To correct this,
reduce the number of files in the partition or increase the size of the partition. See Defining Script Properties
on page 6-4 for more information about setting the image size appropriately.

Creating a Splash Screen
The MT2070/MT2090 DCP includes source bitmap files used to create the default splash screens for the device.
Modify these files using any of the standard windows image editors to allow customization.
To create a custom splash screen:
1.
Use the image editor to open the Splashmono.bmp file supplied with the Series 1000 DCP.
2.
Modify the bitmap file and save.
3.
Create a splash partition using the steps shown in Building the Image on page 6-6.

Flash Storage
In addition to the RAM-based storage standard on Windows CE devices, the device is also equipped with a
non-volatile Flash-based storage area which can store data (partitions) that can not be corrupted by a cold boot.
This Flash area is divided into two categories: Flash File System (FFS) Partitions and Non-FFS Partitions.
FFS Partitions
The device includes two FFS partitions. These partitions appear to the device as a hard drive that the OS file
system can write files to and read files from. Data is retained even if power is removed.
The two FFS partitions appear as two separate folders in the Windows CE file system and are as follows:
• Platform: The Platform FFS partition contains Motorola-supplied programs and Dynamic Link Libraries
(DLLs). This FFS is configured to include DLLs that control system operation. Since these drivers are
required for basic device operation, only experienced users should modify the content of this partition.
• Application: The Application FFS partition is used to store application programs needed to operate the
device.
Creating/Loading Hex Images 6 - 15
Working with FFS Partitions
Because the FFS partitions appear as folders under the Windows CE file system, they can be written to and read
like any other folder. For example, an application program can write data to a file located in the Application folder
just as it would to the Windows folder. However, the file in the Application folder is in non-volatile storage and is not
lost on a cold boot (e.g., when power is removed for a long period of time).
Use standard tools such as ActiveSync to copy files to and from the FFS partitions. They appear as the
“Application” and “Platform” folders to the ActiveSync explorer. This is useful when installing applications on the
device. Applications stored in the Application folder are retained even when the device is cold booted, just as the
Demo 1000 program is retained in memory.
There are two device drivers included in the Windows CE image to assist developers in configuring the device
following a cold boot: RegMerge and CopyFiles.
RegMerge.dll
RegMerge.dll is a built-in driver that allows modify the Windows CE Registry. Regmerge.dll runs very early in the
boot process and looks for registry files (.reg files) in certain Flash File System folders during a cold boot. It then
merges the registry changes into the system registry located in RAM.
Since the registry is re-created on every cold boot from the default ROM image, the RegMerge driver is necessary
to make registry modifications persistent over cold boots.
RegMerge is configured to look in the root of two specific folders for .reg files in the following order:
\Platform
\Application
Regmerge continues to look for .reg files in these folders until all folders are checked. This allows folders later in
the list to override folders earlier in the list. This way, it is possible to override Registry changes made by the
Platforms partitions folders. Take care when using Regmerge to make Registry changes. The MT2070/MT2090
DCP contains examples of .reg files.
NOTE
Regmerge only merges the .reg files on cold boots. A warm boot skips the merge process.
Typically, do not make modifications to registry values for drivers loaded before RegMerge. However, these values
may require modification during software development. Since these early loading drivers read these keys before
RegMerge gets a chance to change them, the device must be cold booted. The warm boot does not re-initialize the
registry and the early loading driver reads the new registry values.
Do not use Regmerge to modify built-in driver registry values, or merge the same Registry value to two files in the
same folder, as the results are undefined.
CopyFiles
Windows CE expects certain files to be in the Windows folder, residing in volatile storage. Windows CE maintains
the System Registry in volatile storage. CopyFiles copies files from one folder to another on a cold boot. A cold
boot copies files from a non-volatile partition (Application or Platform) to the Windows or other volatile partition
during a cold boot. During a cold boot CopyFiles looks for files with a .CPY extension in the root of the Platform and
Application FFS partitions (Platform first and then Application). These files are text files containing the source and
destination for the desired files to be copied separated by “>”. The following example from the file application.cpy is
contained on the demo application partition included in the MT2070/MT2090 DCP. Also obtain this from the
Support Central Web site at http://www.motorola.com/enterprisemobility/contactsupport.
6 - 16 Symbol MT2070/MT2090 Integrator Guide
Files are copied to the Windows folder from the Flash File System using copy files (*.cpy) in the following order:
\Platform
\Application
Example:
\Application\ScanSamp2.exe>\Windows\ScanSamp2.exe
This line directs CopyFiles to copy the ScanSamp2.exe application from the \Application folder to the \Windows
folder.
Non-FFS Partitions
Non-FFS Partitions include additional software and data pre-loaded on the device that can be upgraded. Unlike
FFS Partitions, these partitions are not visible when the operating system is running. They also contain system
information. Non-FFS partitions include the following:
• Windows CE: The complete Windows CE operating system is stored on Flash devices. If necessary,
download the entire OS image to the device using files provided by Motorola. The current OS partition on the
device is included as part of the TCM installation package. Obtain any upgrades from Motorola. This partition
is mandatory for the device.
• Splash Screen: a bitmap smaller than 16 Kb (and limited to 8 bits per pixel) appears as the device cold boots.
To download a customized screen to display, see Creating a Splash Screen on page 6-14.
NOTE
8 bits per pixel only applies to splash screen images. Once Windows CE is running, the color density is 16
bits per pixel.
• IPL: This program interfaces with the host computer and allows downloading via cradle any or all of the
partitions listed above, as well as updated versions of IPL. Use caution downloading updated IPL versions;
incorrect downloading of an IPL causes permanent damage to the device. IPL is mandatory for the device.
• Partition Table: Identifies where each partition is loaded in the device.
Downloading Partitions to the Device
Use TCM to specify a hex destination file for each partition and download each file to the device. This download
requires a program loader stored on the device. The device comes with a program loading utility, Initial Program
Loader (IPL), stored in the device's write-protected flash.
Creating/Loading Hex Images 6 - 17
IPL
IPL allows the user to upgrade the device with software updates and/or feature enhancements.
Partition Update vs. File Update
There are two types of updates supported by the device: partitions and files. The MT2070/MT2090 uses the same
file system as the file system used on a desktop computer. A file is a unit of data that can be accessed using a file
name and a location in the file system. Replacing a file erases the contents of the previous file. The operating
system must be running for a file to be updated, so the IPL cannot perform individual file updates as it is a
stand-alone program that does not require the operating system to be running.
A typical partition is a group of files combined into a single “partition” that represents a specific area of storage.
Examples of partitions are the flash file systems such as Platform or Application. (Using the desktop computer
comparison, these partitions are roughly equivalent to a C: or D: hard disk drive.) In addition to the “hard disk”
partitions, some partitions are used for single items such as the operating system, monitor, or splash screen.
(Again using a desktop computer comparison, these partitions are roughly the equivalent of the BIOS or special
hidden system files.) Updating a partition erases all data previously in its storage region - i.e., it is not a merge but
rather a replacement operation. Typically, the operating system is not running when partitions are updated, so IPL
can perform partition updates.
Use TCM to create partition images for selected partitions. All partition images suitable for use by IPL are in hex file
format for transfer by TCM from the development computer to the device.
Upgrade Requirements
• The hex files to be downloaded (on development computer)
• A connection from the host computer and the device (either USB or wireless)
• TCM (on development computer) to download the files.
After satisfying these requirements, invoke IPL and navigate the menu to upgrade the MT2070/MT2090. See
Downloading the Hex Image on page 6-7 for procedures on downloading a hex file to the device.

Infrastructure: Select Infrastructure to enable the device to transmit and receive data with an AP.
Infrastructure is the device default mode.
Ad Hoc: Select Ad Hoc to enable the device to form its own local network where devices
communicate peer-to-peer without APs using a shared ESSID.
Country
Country: is used to determine if the profile is valid for the country of operation. The profile country
must match the country in the options. page or it must match the acquired country if 802.11d is
enabled.
Single Country Use:
When the device is only to be used in a single country, set every profile country to Allow Any
Country. In the Options > Regulatory dialog box (see Figure 7-43 on page 7-35), set the country
to the specific country the device is to be used in, and deselect (uncheck) the Enable 802.11d
option. This is the most common and the efficient configuration. It eliminates the initialization
overhead associated with acquiring a country via 802.11d.
Multiple Country Use:
When the device may be used in more than one country, select (check) the Enable 802.11d
option in the Regulatory Options dialog box (see Figure 7-43 on page 7-35). This eliminates the
need for reprograming the country (in Options > Regulatory) each time a new country is entered.
However, this only works if the infrastructure (i.e. APs) support 802.11d (some infrastructures do
not support 802.11d, including some Cisco APs). When the Enable 802.11d option is selected,
the Options > Regulatory > Country setting is not used. For a single profile that can be used in
multiple countries, with infrastructure that supports 802.11d (including Symbol infrastructure), set
the Profile Country to Allow Any Country. Under Options > Regulatory, select Enable 802.11d.
The Options > Regulatory > Country setting is not used.
For a single profile that can be used in multiple countries, but with infrastructure that does not
support 802.11d, set the profile country to Allow Any Country, and de-select (uncheck) Enable
802.11d. In this case, the Options > Regulatory > Country setting must always be set to the
country the device is currently in. This configuration option is the most efficient and may be
chosen for use with any infrastructure. However, the Options > Regulatory > Country setting
must be manually changed when a new country is entered.

Description
Note that using a single profile in multiple countries implies that there is a common ESSID to
connect to in each country. This is less likely than having unique ESSIDs in each country, this
requires unique profiles for each country.
For additional efficiency when using multiple profiles that can be used in multiple countries, the
country setting for each profile can be set to a specific country. If the current country (found via
802.11d or set by Options > Regulatory > Country when 802.11d is disabled) does not match the
country set in a given profile, then that profile is disabled. This can make profile roaming occur
faster. For example, if two profiles are created and configured for Japan, and two more profiles
are created and configured for USA, then when in Japan only the first two profiles are active, and
when in USA only the last two are active. If they had all been configured for Allow Any Country,
then all four would always be active, making profile roaming less efficient.

MS CHAP v2
Microsoft Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol version 2 (MS CHAP v2) is a
password-based, challenge-response, mutual authentication protocol that uses the
industry-standard Message Digest 4 (MD4) and Data Encryption Standard (DES) algorithms to
encrypt responses. The authenticating server challenges the access client and the access client
challenges the authenticating server. If either challenge is not correctly answered, the
connection is rejected. MS CHAP v2 was originally designed by Microsoft as a PPP
authentication protocol to provide better protection for dial-up and virtual private network (VPN)
connections. With Windows XP SP1, Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2003, and Windows
2000 SP4, MS CHAP v2 is also an EAP type.
TLS
EAP TLS is used during the phase 2 of the authentication process. This method uses a user
certificate to authenticate.

Authentication
Description
CHAP
Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP) is one of the two main authentication
protocols used to verify the user name and password for PPP Internet connections. CHAP is
more secure than PAP because it performs a three way handshake during the initial link
establishment between the home and remote machines. It can also repeat the authentication
anytime after the link has been established.
MS CHAP
Microsoft Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (MS CHAP) is an implementation of the
CHAP protocol that Microsoft created to authenticate remote Windows workstations. In most
respects, MS CHAP is identical to CHAP, but there are a few differences. MS CHAP is based on
the encryption and hashing algorithms used by Windows networks, and the MS CHAP response
to a challenge is in a format optimized for compatibility with Windows operating systems.
MS CHAP v2
MS CHAP v2 is a password based, challenge response, mutual authentication protocol that
uses the industry standard Message Digest 4 (MD4) and Data Encryption Standard (DES)
algorithms to encrypt responses. The authenticating server challenges the access client and the
access client challenges the authenticating server. If either challenge is not correctly answered,
the connection is rejected. MS CHAP v2 was originally designed by Microsoft as a PPP
authentication protocol to provide better protection for dial-up and virtual private network (VPN)
connections. With Windows XP SP1, Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2003, and Windows
2000 SP4, MS CHAP v2 is also an EAP type.
PAP
Password Authentication Protocol (PAP), has two variations PAP and CHAP PAP. It verifies a
user name and password for PPP Internet connections, but it is not as secure as CHAP, since it
works only to establish the initial link. PAP is also more vulnerable to attack because it sends
authentication packets throughout the network. Nevertheless, PAP is more commonly used than
CHAP to log in to a remote host like an Internet service provider.
MD5
Message Digest-5 (MD5) is an authentication algorithm developed by RSA. MD5 generates a
128-bit message digest using a 128-bit key, IPSec truncates the message digest to 96 bits.

suspend/resume occurs. Once the user is reauthenticated, the user is prompted for credentials.
If the user does not enter the same credentials that were entered prior to the suspend/resume,
the user is disconnected from the network. The user may try up to three times to enter the
correct credentials. If the correct credentials are entered, then the network connection remains
intact. This option only applies if a user is logged in.
At Time
Use this option to perform a local verification on an authenticated user at a specified time. The
time can be an absolute time or a relative time from the authentication, the times should be at
least 5 minutes intervals. Once the time has passed, the user is prompted for credentials. If the
user enters the correct credentials, the network connection remains intact. If the user enters the
wrong credentials, the user is disconnected from the network. The user may try up to three
times to enter the correct credentials. If the correct credentials are entered, then the network
connection remains intact. This option only applies if a user is logged in.
When a user enters the credentials, the credentials are applied to a particular profile. If a user logs out, all of the
cached credentials are cleared. If a profile is edited, then all cached credentials for that profile are cleared.

IP Address
The Internet is a collection of networks with users that communicate with each other. Each
communication carries the address of the source and destination networks and the particular
machine within the network associated with the user or host computer at each end. This
address is called the IP address (Internet Protocol address). Each node on the IP network must
be assigned a unique IP address that is made up of a network identifier and a host identifier.
Enter the IP address as a dotted-decimal notation with the decimal value of each octet
separated by a period, for example, 192.168.7.27.
Subnet Mask
Most TCP/IP networks use subnets in order to effectively manage routed IP addresses. Having
an organization's network divided into subnets allows it to be connected to the Internet with a
single shared network address, for example, 255.255.255.0.

Login, Log Off Application
When the user launches the login, log off application, the device may be in two states; the user may already be
logged onto the device (having already entering credentials through the login box) or the user is not logged on.
Each of these states have a separate set of use cases and a different look to the dialog box.
User Already Logged In
If already logged in to the device, launch the login dialog box to:
• Connect to and re-enable a cancelled profile. To perform this function:
• Launch the Log On/Off dialog.
• Select the cancelled profile from the profile list.
• Login to the profile.
NOTE: Cancelled profiles can also be re-enabled by using the Profile Editor Wizard and choosing to
connect to the cancelled profile. Cancelled profiles are also be re-enabled when a new user logs on.
• Logoff the device, to prevent another user from accessing the current users network privileges.
• Switch device users, to quickly logoff the device and allow another user to log into the device.
No User Logged In
To access user profiles, when no user is logged in, launch the login dialog box and login.
The dialog displays differently if it is:
• Launched by WCS, when the service is connecting to a new profile that needs credentials
• Launched by WCS, when the service is trying to verify the credentials due to credential caching rules
• Launched by a user, when a user is logged in
• Launched by a user, when no user is logged in.

(i.e., displays only the '*' character) or unmasked (i.e., displays the entered text).
Check the box to unmask the password. Uncheck the box to mask the password (the
default).
Status Field
The status field displays status that is important to the login dialog. If the user opens
the dialog and needs to prompt for credentials for a particular profile at this time, it
can use the status field to let the user know that the network is held up by the
password dialog being open.
Selecting OK sends the credentials though WCS API. If there are no credentials entered, a dialog box displays
informing the user which field was not entered.
The Log Off button only displays when a user is already logged on. When the Log Off button is selected, the user is
prompted with three options: Log Off, Switch Users, and Cancel. Switching users logs off the current user and
re-initialize the login dialog box to be displayed for when there is no user logged on. Logging off logs off the current
user and close the login dialog box. Selecting Cancel closes the Log Off dialog box and the Login dialog box
displays.
When the user is logged off, the device only roams to profiles that do not require credentials or to profiles that were
created with the credentials entered into the profile
The Cancel button closes the dialog without logging into the network. If the login dialog was launched by the WCS
and not by the user, selecting Cancel first causes a message box to display a warning that the cancel disables the
current profile. If the user still chooses to cancel the login at this point, the profile is cancelled.
Once a profile is cancelled, the profile is suppressed until a user actively re-enables it or a new user logs onto the
device.

Chapter 8 Staging and Provisioning
Introduction
This chapter describes how to stage devices using Rapid Deployment and provisioning using MSP Agent or
AirBEAM Smart.
NOTE
Screens and windows pictured are samples and can differ from actual screens.
Staging
Staging is the process of setting up the device to download packages for provisioning. The device uses the Rapid
Deployment (RD) Client for staging.
RD Client Version 3.28
The RD Client version 3.28 enables simple and rapid provisioning of new (out of the box) devices and simplifies the
out-of-box provisioning by scanning bar codes or connecting to a profile server. The RD Client acts as a frontend
for wireless radio configuration, automating the manual configurations that would normally be required to use these
tools.
NOTE
The MSP 3.X Rapid Deployment Client enables staging by scanning staging profiles encoded into staging bar
code sheets. It also enables staging to be performed without scanning bar codes through the use of
On-Demand Staging.
When using On-Demand Staging, the RD Client pulls staging profiles directly from an On-Demand Profile
Server over some form of pre-configured or automatically-configured IP connection.
For detailed information about the MSP 3.X, refer to the Mobility Services Platform 3.X User’s Guide.
An MSP Administrator uses the MSP Console for the creation of an RD profile that contains all the wireless
network and security information (for example, ESSID, WEP Keys, etc.) required to get a device onto the wireless
network. The profile also contains FTP server access information needed to connect to the provisioning MSP and
the list of software packages to be provisioned to the device from the provisioning MSP. The RD profile can then be
encoded into an RD bar code sheet and printed from the MSP Console or loaded onto a profile server.

On-Demand Staging
The MSP 3.X RD Client also enables staging without having to scan bar codes through the use of On-Demand
Staging (Electronic Staging).
When using On-Demand Staging, the RD Client pulls staging profiles directly from an On-Demand Profile Server
over some form of pre-configured or automatically-configured IP connection. The following types of IP connection
modes are currently supported for Electronic Staging:
ActiveSync Connection Mode
This mode uses the IP connection that is established when the device is directly connected (via a USB cable or
cradle) to a host computer running ActiveSync. The most common scenario would be where the On-Demand
Profile Server is running on the host computer to which the device is connected via ActiveSync. It would, however,
also work with the On-Demand Profile Server running on any other host computer that is on the same subnet as
the host computer to which the device is connected via ActiveSync.
Ethernet Cradle Connection Mode
This mode uses the IP connection that is established when a device is inserted into an Ethernet cradle that is
plugged into the Ethernet LAN. Some devices come ready to use with Ethernet cradles while others require
software to be installed and configured before an Ethernet cradle connection can be established. The RD Client
does not do anything to install Ethernet cradle software or configure or establish an Ethernet cradle connection, but
does use one if it exists. The On-Demand Profile Server must be running on a host computer that is on the same
subnet to which the Ethernet cradle is connected.
Already existing IP Connection Mode
This mode uses any IP connection that is already active on the device. This could be a direct Ethernet port (if
available), or a WLAN connection that was configured and established before the RD Client was launched. It could
also be any other form of IP connection that might be available on the device. The RD Client does not do anything
to configure or establish such connections, but uses them if they exist. The On-Demand Profile Server must be
running on a host computer that is on the same subnet that is accessible from the connection.
Well-known WLAN Connection Mode
This mode works only on supported Motorola WLAN adapters. The RD Client attempts to configure and establish
WLAN IP connections using pre-defined Motorola WLAN settings. If the RD Client is able to successfully configure
and establish such a connection, and if an On-Demand Profile Server is running on a host computer that is on the
same subnet that is accessible from the connection, then Electronic Staging proceeds using that connection.
To perform On-Demand Staging:

NOTE
MSP Agent is also known as MSP 3.X Provisioning Client.
The Provisioning Client replaces AirBEAM Client and is responsible for implementing device-side provisioning
activities as defined by a policy. A policy is evaluated on the MSP 3.X system and delivered to devices as job
documents via relay servers.
The MSP 3.X Provisioning Client is 100% backward compatible to prior versions of the AirBEAM Client. Existing
AirBEAM Smart users can use the MSP 3.X Provisioning Client as a 100% backward compatible replacement for
prior versions of AirBEAM client, when used in Classic AirBEAM mode with existing FTP servers.
Existing MSP 2.X users can use the new Provisioning Client as a 100% backward compatible replacement for
previous versions of AirBEAM Client, when used in Level 2 Agent and Level 3 Agent modes with existing MSP 2.X
Appliances.

AirBEAM Smart Client
The AirBEAM Smart product allows specially designed software packages to be transferred between a host server
and a device. Before transfer, AirBEAM Smart checks and compares package version, so that only updated
packages are loaded.
AirBEAM Smart resides on the device and allows it to request, download and install software, as well as to upload
files and status data. Both download and upload of files can be accomplished in a single communications session.
The ability to transfer software over a wireless network can greatly reduce the logistical efforts of client software
management.
In an AirBEAM Smart system, a network-accessible host server acts as the storage point for the software transfer.
The AirBEAM Smart Client uses the industry standard FTP or TFTP file transfer protocols to check the host system
for updates and, if necessary, to transfer updated software.
NOTE
For more detailed information about AirBEAM Smart, refer to the AirBEAM® Smart Windows® CE Client
Product Reference Guide (p/n 72-63060-xx).
AirBEAM Package Builder
In a typical distributed AirBEAM system, software to be transferred is organized into packages. In general, an
AirBEAM package is simply a set of files that are assigned attributes both as an entire package and as individual
component files. The package is assigned a version number and the transfer occurs when an updated version is
available.
An AirBEAM package can optionally contain developer-specified logic to be used to install the package. Installation
logic is typically used to update client device flash images or radio firmware. Examples of common AirBEAM
packages would include packages for custom client application software, radio firmware and AirBEAM Smart Client
software.
Once these packages are built, they are installed on the host server for retrieval by the device. The AirBEAM
Package Builder is a utility used to define, generate and install AirBEAM packages to a server. The packages are
then loaded from the server onto a client device equipped with an AirBEAM Smart Client executable.
For detailed instructions on how to define, generate and install AirBEAM packages to the server, refer to the
AirBEAM Package Builder Product Reference Guide, p/n 72-55769-xx.
AirBEAM Smart Client
The AirBEAM Smart Client is installed on the device. It is configured with the server access information, the names
of the packages to be downloaded and other controlling parameters. When the AirBEAM Smart Client is launched,
the device connects to the specified FTP server and checks the packages it is configured to look for. If the package
version was updated, the client requests the transfer.
AirBEAM License
The AirBEAM Smart Client is a licensed software product. The AirBEAM Smart Client's version synchronization
functionality is enabled through a license key file that is stored on the device. The license key file can be built into
AirBEAM Smart Client's image, or downloaded in a special AirBEAM package.
The AirBEAM license key file contains a unique key and a customer specific banner that is displayed when the
AirBEAM Smart Client version synchronization logic is invoked.

Synchronizing with the Server
When the synchronization process is initiated, the AirBEAM Smart Client attempts to open an FTP session using
the AirBEAM Smart Client configuration. Once connected, the client processes the specified packages. Packages
are loaded only if the server version of a given package is different from the version loaded on the client. Once the
upload process is complete, the AirBEAM Smart Client closes the FTP session with the server.
The AirBEAM Smart Client can launch an FTP session with the server either manually, when initiated by the user,
or automatically.

AirBEAM Smart Staging
The AirBEAM Smart staging support is intended to speed up and simplify the process of staging custom or updated
operating software onto mobile devices directly from manufacturing. The staging support is part of the AirBEAM
Smart CE Client that is integrated into the device.
The AirBEAM Smart support works by defaulting the AirBEAM Smart Client configuration to a known set of values
and launching the AirBEAM Smart package download logic. A staging environment, including an RF network, FTP
server and AirBEAM Smart packages must be setup. Ideally a staging network and server should be setup to
match the default AirBEAM Staging client configuration.
The AirBEAM Smart staging utility is invoked by selecting the Files icon from the Series 3000 Demo screen, select
\Platform\AirBeam\ and double select on the abstage.lnk file.
The AirBEAM Staging support provides several benefits:
• Many devices can be simultaneously loaded over the RF network.
The AirBEAM staging utility provides a simple single dialog user interface that is used to quickly start the software
installation process.

Introduction
This chapter includes instructions on cleaning and storing the device, and provides troubleshooting solutions for
potential problems during device operation.
Maintenance
For trouble-free service, observe the tips that follow when using the device and its accessories.
MT20X0
• Do not scratch the screen of the device.
• Although the device is water and dust resistant, do not expose it to rain or moisture for an extended period of
time. In general, treat the device as a pocket calculator or other small electronic instrument.
• Do not clean the device or expose it to rain or moisture when the battery is removed. Without the battery,
the device is not water/dust sealed.
• Do not drop the device or subject it to strong impact.
• Protect the device from temperature extremes. Do not leave it on the dashboard of a car on a hot day, and
keep it away from heat sources.
• Do not store or use the device in any location that is extremely dusty, damp, or wet.
• Do not store or use the device with the auxiliary accessory cover off. Without the accessory cover, the device
is not water/dust sealed.
• Do not use window cleaning solution. Use a soft cloth dampened with a 50/50 solution of isopropyl alcohol
and water.
• Do not allow the solution to form a pool of liquid anywhere on the screen or device.
• Do not use a large amount of solution to cause the device to remain wet.
• The display screen and scan window can often be cleaned with common office (Scotch) tape. Apply the
tape to surfaces and then peel the tape away; in most cases the dirt can be removed along with the tape.

Battery
When batteries are stored over a year, battery cell manufacturers advise that some irreversible deterioration in
overall battery quality may occur. To minimize this loss, they recommend storing batteries half charged in a dry,
cool place between 41° and 77°F (5° and 25°C), the cooler the better, and removed from the equipment to prevent
the loss of capacity. Batteries should be charged to half capacity at least once a year. In order to charge a battery
to half capacity, take a fully discharged battery and charge it for 2 hours. If an electrolyte leakage is observed, avoid
any contact with the affected area and properly dispose of the battery.
Cradles
• Although the cradles are water and dust resistant, do not expose them to rain or moisture for an extended
period of time. In general, treat the cradles as you would a pocket calculator or other electronic instrument.
• Do not drop the cradles or subject them to strong impact.
• Protect the cradles from temperature extremes. Do not leave them in a car on a hot day, and keep them
away from heat sources.
• Do not store or use the cradles in any location that is extremely dusty, damp, or wet.
• Use a soft cloth dampened with a 50/50 solution of isopropyl alcohol and water.
• Do not allow the solution to form a pool of liquid anywhere in the cradle.
• Do not use a large amount of solution to cause the cradles to remain wet.

Auxiliary Connection
An auxiliary port above the device trigger allows for the attachment of accessories such as Checkpoint EAS or
additional illumination.
NOTE
The auxiliary port is not available on all configurations of the device.
IMPORTANT When the auxiliary port cover is removed, the device is no longer water/dust sealed and is more
susceptible to ESD. Do not use or store a device without the auxiliary port cover in place, or an
installed auxiliary device that provides its own water/dust seal for the device.

creating personal area networks (PANs). It was originally conceived as a wireless alternative to RS-232 data cables. It
can connect several devices, overcoming problems of synchronization.
bps. See Bits Per Second.
Byte. On an addressable boundary, eight adjacent binary digits (0 and 1) combined in a pattern to represent a specific
character or numeric value. Bits are numbered from the right, 0 through 7, with bit 0 the low-order bit. One byte in
memory is used to store one ASCII character.
Boot or Boot-up. The process a computer goes through when it starts. During boot-up, the computer can run
self-diagnostic tests and configure hardware and software.
BOOTP. A protocol for remote booting of diskless devices. Assigns an IP address to a machine and may specify a boot file.
The client sends a bootp request as a broadcast to the bootp server port (67) and the bootp server responds using the
bootp client port (68). The bootp server must have a table of all devices, associated MAC addresses and IP addresses.
bps. See Bits Per Second.

character or numeric value. Bits are numbered from the right, 0 through 7, with bit 0 the low-order bit. One byte in
memory is used to store one ASCII character.
C
CDRH. Center for Devices and Radiological Health. A federal agency responsible for regulating laser product safety. This
agency specifies various laser operation classes based on power output during operation.
CDRH Class 1. This is the lowest power CDRH laser classification. This class is considered intrinsically safe, even if all laser
output were directed into the eye's pupil. There are no special operating procedures for this class.
CDRH Class 2. No additional software mechanisms are needed to conform to this limit. Laser operation in this class poses
no danger for unintentional direct human exposure.
Character. A pattern of bars and spaces which either directly represents data or indicates a control function, such as a
number, letter, punctuation mark, or communications control contained in a message.
Character Set. Those characters available for encoding in a particular bar code symbology.
Check Digit. A digit used to verify a correct symbol decode. The scanner inserts the decoded data into an arithmetic formula
and checks that the resulting number matches the encoded check digit. Check digits are required for UPC but are
optional for other symbologies. Using check digits decreases the chance of substitution errors when a symbol is
decoded.
Codabar. A discrete self-checking code with a character set consisting of digits 0 to 9 and six additional characters: ( - $ : /
, +).
Code 128. A high density symbology which allows the controller to encode all 128 ASCII characters without adding extra
symbol elements.
Code 3 of 9 (Code 39). A versatile and widely used alphanumeric bar code symbology with a set of 43 character types,
including all uppercase letters, numerals from 0 to 9 and 7 special characters (- . / + % $ and space). The code name is
derived from the fact that 3 of 9 elements representing a character are wide, while the remaining 6 are narrow.
Code 93. An industrial symbology compatible with Code 39 but offering a full character ASCII set and a higher coding
density than Code 39.
Code Length. Number of data characters in a bar code between the start and stop characters, not including those
characters.
Cold Boot. A cold boot restarts a device and erases all user stored records and entries.
COM Port. Communication port; ports are identified by number, e.g., COM1, COM2.
Continuous Code. A bar code or symbol in which all spaces within the symbol are parts of characters. There are no
intercharacter gaps in a continuous code. The absence of gaps allows for greater information density.
Cradle. A cradle is used for charging the terminal battery and for communicating with a host computer, and provides a
storage place for the terminal when not in use.

9000 scanners include Serial and USB ports.
Intercharacter Gap. The space between two adjacent bar code characters in a discrete code.
Interleaved 2 of 5. A binary bar code symbology representing character pairs in groups of five bars and five interleaved
spaces. Interleaving provides for greater information density. The location of wide elements (bar/spaces) within each
group determines which characters are encoded. This continuous code type uses no intercharacter spaces. Only
numeric (0 to 9) and START/STOP characters may be encoded.
Interleaved Bar Code. A bar code in which characters are paired together, using bars to represent the first character and
the intervening spaces to represent the second.
Internet Protocol Address. See IP.

characteristics, and signal meanings. Types of interfaces include RS-232 and PCMCIA.
IOCTL. Input/Output Control.
IP. Internet Protocol. The IP part of the TCP/IP communications protocol. IP implements the network layer (layer 3) of the
protocol, which contains a network address and is used to route a message to a different network or subnetwork. IP
accepts “packets” from the layer 4 transport protocol (TCP or UDP), adds its own header to it and delivers a “datagram”
to the layer 2 data link protocol. It may also break the packet into fragments to support the maximum transmission unit
(MTU) of the network.
IP Address. (Internet Protocol address) The address of a computer attached to an IP network. Every client and server
station must have a unique IP address. A 32-bit address used by a computer on a IP network. Client workstations have
either a permanent address or one that is dynamically assigned to them each session. IP addresses are written as four
sets of numbers separated by periods; for example, 204.171.64.2.
IPX/SPX. Internet Package Exchange/Sequential Packet Exchange. A communications protocol for Novell. IPX is Novell’s

mobile unit. The MDN is usually associated with a MIN in a cellular telephone -- in the US and Canada, the MDN and
MIN are the same value for voice cellular users. International roaming considerations often result in the MDN being
different from the MIN.
MIL. 1 mil = 1 thousandth of an inch.
MIN. Mobile Identification Number. The unique account number associated with a cellular device. It is broadcast by the
cellular device when accessing the cellular system.
Misread (Misdecode). A condition which occurs when the data output of a reader or interface controller does not agree with
the data encoded within a bar code symbol.

T
TCP/IP. (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) A communications protocol used to internetwork dissimilar
systems. This standard is the protocol of the Internet and has become the global standard for communications. TCP
provides transport functions, which ensures that the total amount of bytes sent is received correctly at the other end.
UDP is an alternate transport that does not guarantee delivery. It is widely used for real-time voice and video
transmissions where erroneous packets are not retransmitted. IP provides the routing mechanism. TCP/IP is a routable
protocol, which means that all messages contain not only the address of the destination station, but the address of a
destination network. This allows TCP/IP messages to be sent to multiple networks within an organization or around the
world, hence its use in the worldwide Internet. Every client and server in a TCP/IP network requires an IP address, which
is either permanently assigned or dynamically assigned at startup.
Telnet. A terminal emulation protocol commonly used on the Internet and TCP/IP-based networks. It allows a user at a
terminal or computer to log onto a remote device and run a program.

TFTP. (Trivial File Transfer Protocol) A version of the TCP/IP FTP (File Transfer Protocol) protocol that has no directory or
password capability. It is the protocol used for upgrading firmware, downloading software and remote booting of diskless
devices.
Tolerance. Allowable deviation from the nominal bar or space width.
Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol. See TCP/IP.
Trivial File Transfer Protocol. See TFTP.
U
UDP. User Datagram Protocol. A protocol within the IP protocol suite that is used in place of TCP when a reliable delivery
is not required. For example, UDP is used for real-time audio and video traffic where lost packets are simply ignored,
because there is no time to retransmit. If UDP is used and a reliable delivery is required, packet sequence checking and
error notification must be written into the applications.
UPC. Universal Product Code. A relatively complex numeric symbology. Each character consists of two bars and two
spaces, each of which is any of four widths. The standard symbology for retail food packages in the United States.
V
Visible Laser Diode (VLD). A solid state device which produces visible laser light.
