ADDENDUM
This information applies only to the
FTB-1 user guide.
Configuring Your Unit to Work with the
Write Filter Manager
Note: Only administrator-level users can install software under Windows
Embedded Standard.
By default, your unit is locked to prevent the installation of unwanted
applications and components.
In some cases, you may need to install third-party applications such as
those allowing you to connect to the 3G network of your Internet services
provider. To install applications that are not part of the standard EXFO
products, you will need to unlock your unit first, using the Write Filter
Manager application.
Note: If you intend to work with the standard Sierra Wireless 319U USB key, you
do not need to use the Write Filter Manager. For more information on the
configuration and use of this USB key, refer to the Accessing the Internet
with a 3G USB Modem Key section of the FTB-1 documentation.
CAUTION
Installing applications that have not been previously approved by
EXFO may prevent your unit from working properly.
CAUTION
DO NOT CONNECT any new 3G USB modem key to the unit before
the configuration is complete and the unit has been unlocked with
the Write Filter Manager.
IMPORTANT
Before being able to work with the Write Filter Manager, you must
install the most recent Platform kit for your unit. To do this, you will
need a standard USB memory key and a computer with an Internet
access. You can also retrieve the kit directly from your unit, but you
will need an Internet access (other than the one that would be
provided by the new 3G USB modem key).

Installing Third-Party Applications
Note: Only administrator-level users can install software under Windows
Embedded Standard.
By default, your unit is locked to prevent the installation of unwanted
applications and components. The Write Filter Manager enables you to
unlock your unit to let you install a third-party application (for example, the
application for the Sprint 3G USB modem key). The lock status of your unit
(locked or unlocked) is displayed in the main window of the Write Filter
Manager.
CAUTION

Installing applications that have not been previously approved
by EXFO may prevent your unit from working properly.

To preserve the integrity and stability of your unit, do not forget
to lock it once the installation of the third-party application is
complete.
CAUTION
DO NOT CONNECT any new 3G USB modem key to the unit before
the unit has been unlocked with the Write Filter Manager.
