Figure 2-11. Opening the display
Display Panel
Your LifeBook T4200 Series Tablet PC contains a
display panel that is backlit for easier viewing in bright
environments. The convertible design of your Tablet PC
allows you to open the display fully, rotate it in either
direction 180 degrees, and lay it face up on the
keyboard. This allows you to use the system as a tablet,
much as you would a pad of paper.
OPENING THE DISPLAY PANEL
1. Press the latch release button. This releases the
locking mechanism. While holding the latch release,
lift display cover.
2. Lift the display backwards, being careful not to
touch the screen, until it is at a comfortable viewing
angle. (Figure 2-11)
2. When the display is perpendicular to the keyboard,
rotate it 180 degrees in either direction (Figure 2-15)
so that it is facing backwards. (Figure 2-16)
3. Holding the top edge of the display panel, pull it
forward until it is lying nearly atop the keyboard.
4. Push the latch towards the display (See “A” in
Figure 2-12). The latch will pivot so the top latch
disappears, and the bottom latch appears (See “B”
in Figure 2-12). Holding the latch down, lay the
display flush against the system so that the latch
engages. You can now use your system as a tablet.
(Figure 2-17)

USING THE SYSTEM AS A TABLET
If you would like to use the system as a tablet, perform
the following steps.
The display can be rotated in either
direction, but when returning the system
to notebook mode, be sure to observe the
display rotation light. Rotate the system
display only in the direction indicated by
the light. Turning the display in the
incorrect direction could cause hinge
damage.
In the following step, be sure to position
the display perpendicular to the keyboard,
otherwise the keyboard or display cover
could get scratched.
1. Lift the display until it is perpendicular to the
keyboard. (Figure 2-14).

ADJUSTING DISPLAY PANEL BRIGHTNESS
Display rotation light
Figure 2-14. Fully open display
Once you have turned on your Tablet PC, you may want
to adjust the brightness level of the screen to a more
comfortable viewing level. There are two ways to adjust
the brightness, keyboard and power management utility.
Using Keyboard to Adjust Brightness
Adjusting the brightness using the keyboard changes the
system setting (i.e., the settings you make via the function keys automatically changes the brightness settings
in the system’s Pen and Tablet Settings).
■
[Fn+F6]: Pressing repeatedly will lower the brightness
of your display.
■
[Fn+F7]: Pressing repeatedly will increase the
brightness of the display.
Using Power Management to Adjust Brightness
To adjust brightness with the power management utility,
click Start -> Control Panel -> Tablet and Pen Settings.
Select the Display tab and set the screen brightness slider
for battery and AC power scenarios.
Figure 2-15. Rotating the display
Using the Fujitsu Menu to Adjust Brightness
To adjust brightness using the Fujitsu menu, click on the
Fujitsu Menu icon in the system tray in the lower right
corner of the screen (or double-click the Function
button). From the menu that appears, select Brightness
Control. The Tablet and Pen Settings window will open.
Select the Display tab and set the screen brightness slider
for battery and AC power scenarios.
If using AC power your brightness setting
is set to its highest level by default. If using
battery power your brightness settings is
set to approximately mid-level by default.
The higher the brightness level, the more
power the Tablet PC will consume and the
faster your batteries will discharge. For
maximum battery life, make sure that the
brightness is set as low as possible.

SETTING UP LIFEBOOK SECURITY PANEL
When you receive your Tablet PC, the security panel
application is pre-installed without any passwords. The
following sections provide detailed information on your
security panel, how to set, change or remove passwords.
Numbered Buttons
Use these buttons to enter your password.
Enter Button
After entering the button strokes, push this button to
enter the password into the Tablet PC.
PASSWORDS
The user and supervisor password may be set on this
Tablet PC. A supervisor password is typically the same
for all tablets and notebooks in a work group, office, or
company to allow for system management. Individual
computers in a group environment should not use a
common password. A password consists of one to five
button strokes plus the enter button. A valid stroke
consists of pushing one or up to four buttons simultaneously.
The following are valid button strokes:
Pushing [4] by itself
■
Pushing [2] and [3] at the same time
■ Pushing [1], [2], and [4] at the same time
■ Pushing [1], [2], [3], and [4] at the same time
The following are valid passwords. The numbers within
braces ({ }) are button strokes using more than one
button.
■
■
■
■
{[2]+[3]}, [1], [Enter]
[4], [enter]
{[1]+[3]}, {[2]+[3]+[4]}, [1], [4], [2], [Enter]
Setting Passwords
When shipped from the factory, no passwords are set.
You have a choice of having no password or setting a
supervisor and user password. You must set the supervisor password before the user password.
• The purpose of supervisor password is
to be able to bypass the user password
in case the user password is forgotten.
The supervisor password alone will not
lock the system.
• You must set the supervisor and user
passwords for the security panel to
work.
Setting Supervisor Password
You must have set a supervisor password before setting
any user passwords. The supervisor password can bypass
the user password.
1. Go to the Start menu.
2. Click on Run.
3. Type in: C:\Program

operation.
From Standby/Hibernation State
1. Press your Suspend/Resume button.
2. When the Security Indicator flashes, enter the password and press Enter button.
The Tablet PC should resume normal operation.
Incorrect Password Entry
If an invalid supervisor or user password is entered three
times in succession, the system will “beep” for about one
minute. If a valid password is entered within a minute
(while system beeps), the beeping will stop and the
Tablet PC will resume normal operation. If no password
is entered or an invalid password is entered while the
system beeps, the system will return to its previous
locked state (standby or off) and the Security Indicator
will go off. To reactivate the Tablet PC after a password
failure, you must press the Suspend/Resume button,
then enter a correct password.

Touchpad Pointing
Device
The Touchpad pointing device built into your Tablet PC
is used to control the movement of the cursor to select
items on your display panel. The Touchpad is composed
of a cursor control, left and right buttons, and a scroll
button.
The cursor control works the same way a mouse does,
and moves the cursor around the display. It only
requires light pressure with the tip of your finger. The
left and right buttons function the same as left and right
mouse buttons. The scroll button allows you to navigate
through pages quickly without using the scroll bars. The
actual functionality of the buttons may vary depending
on the application that is being used. (Figure 2-20)
CLICKING
Clicking means pushing and releasing a button. To leftclick, move the cursor to the item you wish to select,
press the left button once, and then immediately release
it. To right-click, move the cursor to the item you wish
to select, press the right button once, and then immediately release it. (Figure 2-21)
DOUBLE-CLICKING
Double-clicking means pushing and releasing the left
button twice in rapid succession. This procedure does
not function with the right button. To double-click,
move the cursor to the item you wish to select, press
and release the left button twice. (Figure 2-22)
Figure 2-22. Double-clicking

Volume Control
Your Fujitsu Tablet PC has multiple volume controls
which interact with each other.
Any software that contains audio files will
also contain a volume control of its own. If
you install an external audio device that has
an independent volume control, the
hardware volume control and the software
volume control will interact with each other.
It should be noted that if you set your
software volume to Off, you will override
the external volume control setting.
CONTROLLING THE VOLUME
The volume can be controlled in several different ways:
■
Volume can be set from within the Volume Control
on the Taskbar.
■
Volume can be controlled with the [F8] and [F9]
functions keys. Pressing [F8] repeatedly while holding
[Fn] will decrease the volume of your Tablet PC.
Pressing [F9] repeatedly while holding [Fn] will
increase the volume of your Tablet PC.
■
Volume can be controlled by many volume controls
that are set within individual applications.
■
Certain external audio devices you might connect to
your system may have hardware volume controls.
■
Each source discussed above puts an upper limit on
the volume level that must then be followed by the
other sources.
We recommend that you experiment with the various
volume controls to discover the optimal sound level.

Pen and Active Digitizer
USING THE PEN
to the right mouse button (when used in combination
with the tip switch). The rear toggle of the barrel button
switch and the eraser switch at the end of the barrel act
as electronic ink “erasers”.
You can use the LifeBook T4200 Series Tablet PC pen to
generate and create electronic “ink”, to select items, and
to navigate through programs on the Tablet PC.
Programs that support handwriting recognition also
allow you to write characters directly on the screen with
the pen. You can also use the pen as a drawing tool.
The rear toggle, eraser, and tip click pressures can be
changed by clicking [Start] -> Control Panel, and
double-clicking the Fujitsu Pen Settings icon. Note that
the rear toggle switch and the eraser switch are both
affected by the same settings; they cannot be changed
individually.
You are advised to use a screen protector
on your system display to minimize the
chance of its being scratched. Screen
protectors are available from the Fujitsu
Website at us.fujitsu.com/computers.
Eraser Button
Barrel Switch
Tip Switch
To change the rear toggle and eraser button function,
select the drop-down list to select a new function, then
click [Apply]. If you don’t want the rear toggle and
button switch to have any function, select Ignore from
the list.
Adjusting the click pressure determines how much pressure must be put on the pen tip in order for the screen to
react. The softer it is set, less pressure is required; the
harder it is set, more pressure is required. To change the
click pressure, use the slider bar to make the click pressure harder or softer, then click [Apply].
Use only the pen provided with your
Tablet PC. Do not use substitutes that
were not designed for the LifeBook T4200
Series Tablet PC.
Figure 2-25. LifeBook T4200 Series Pen
The LifeBook T4200 Series Tablet PC pen
is a high-quality electronic instrument that
can be damaged if used improperly. Treat
the pen as you would any precision device.
Observe the following guidelines:
• Do not tap the pen on surfaces other
than the Tablet PC screen.
• Do not try to turn the thumb grip on
the pen; it is designed for inserting and
removing the pen from the pen holder.
• Never store the pen with the tip bearing
the weight of the pen (e.g., sitting tip
down in a pencil cup). Storing the pen
tip down could distort the internal
mechanism over a period of time
(especially in higher temperatures),
causing the tip to act as if it is always
depressed. The pen should be stored in
the pen holder when not in use.
The screen reacts when the pen tip is approximately 1/8
inch (3-5 mm) from the screen. The pen has four
switches: a tip switch, a barrel button toggle switch with
switches at both ends, and an "eraser" switch, located on
the end of the barrel. By default, the tip switch corresponds to the left mouse button, and the front toggle
(closest to the pen tip) barrel button switch corresponds
30
Here are some hints that may help you use the pen more
effectively:
• To activate the tip switch, tap or hold the pen tip
against the screen.
• To activate the barrel button switch, press and hold
the end of the button you wish to use (front toggle is
the right mouse button switch; the rear toggle and
eraser button both act as electronic “erasers”).
• To move the cursor, hold the pen tip within 1/8 inch
(3 - 5 mm) from the screen and move the pen.
• To start a program, double-tap the pen tip (tap the
pen tip twice rapidly) on the program icon as you
would double-click a mouse.
• To select an object, tap the pen tip on the object
once.
• To double-click an object, quickly tap the object
twice.
INSTALLING A PEN TETHER
To prevent dropping or losing your pen, you should
attach it to your system using the pen tether that is
included with the system.
To attach the pen tether to your Tablet PC, perform the
following steps:
T Series.book Page 31 Friday, May 5, 2006 9:34 AM
G e t t i n g t o K n o w Yo u r Ta b l e t P C
1. Attach the end of the pen tether with the smaller
loop to your pen. To do so, push the end of the
tether through the hole in the pen, then thread the
opposite end of the tether through the loop. (See
Figure 2-26.)

2. Attach the end of the pen tether with the larger loop
to the attachment point on your tablet. To do so,
insert the end of the pen tether through the attachment point, then feed the pen through the large
loop in the tether.
CALIBRATING THE PEN
In order to ensure accurate tracking between the pen
and cursor, you must run the Touch Screen Calibration
Utility before you use the active digitizer for the first
time, or after you change the display resolution.
USING THE ACTIVE DIGITIZER
The integrated active digitizer allows you to use the
included pen as a pointing device. You can use the pen
to click, double-click, drag items and icons, or to draw
like a pen or pencil in applications that support this
behavior, such as drawing or painting programs. See the
documentation that came with your application for
details. (Figure 2-28)
To run the calibration utility:
1. Go to Start -> Control Panel and double-click on
the Tablet and Pen Settings icon.
2. Click Calibrate.
3. Adjust the display of your Tablet PC to a comfortable angle.
4. Using the pen, firmly touch the screen directly on
the (+) symbol; the (+) symbol will move to the
next location.
5. Repeat step 4 in the four corners, then click OK.
REPLACING THE PEN TIP
With use, the pen tip may become worn or may pick up
foreign particles that can scratch the screen. A damaged
or worn tip may not move freely, causing unpredictable
results when using the pen. If your pen exhibits these
problems, you should replace the pen tip. To do so, use
the pen tip removal tool included with your pen.
To remove the tip, position the tip in the gap between
the two ends of the tool (Figure 2-27). Pinch the tool
together so the tip is firmly clasped, then pull it from the
barrel. If the tip is worn or damaged, discard it.
Figure 2-28. Using the pen with the screen
To avoid potential scratching and damage,
never use anything but the included pen
with the display.
To purchase additional or replacement
pens, visit the Fujitsu accessories Website
at: http://us.fujitsu.com/computers.
Clicking
To left-click, touch the object you wish to select and
then lift the pen tip immediately. (Figure 2-29)
To right-click, press the front button on the barrel
switch or touch the pen to the screen for a couple of
seconds until the right mouse icon appears at the tip.

Power Management
Your LifeBook T4200 Series Tablet PC has many options
and features for conserving battery power. Some of these
features are automatic and need no user intervention,
such as those for the internal modem. However, others
depend on the parameters you set to best suit your operating conditions, such as those for the display brightness. Internal power management for your Tablet PC
may be controlled from settings made in your operating
system, pre-bundled power management application, or
from settings made in BIOS setup utility.
Power Mode
Fully On Mode
Besides the options available for conserving battery
power, there are also some things that you can do to
prevent your Tablet PC battery from running down as
quickly. For example, you can create an appropriate
power saving profile, put your Tablet PC into Standby
mode when it is not performing an operation, and you
can limit the use of high power devices. As with all
mobile, battery powered computers, there is a trade-off
between performance and power savings.

SUSPEND/RESUME BUTTON
STANDBY MODE
When your Tablet PC is active, the Suspend/Resume
button can be used to manually put your Tablet PC into
Standby mode. Push the Suspend/Resume button when
your Tablet PC is active, but not actively accessing
anything, and immediately release the button. You will
hear two short beeps and your system will enter Standby
mode. (See figure 2-6 on page 13 for location).
Standby mode in Windows saves the contents of your
Tablet PC’s system memory during periods of inactivity
by maintaining power to critical parts. This mode will
turn off the CPU, the display, the hard drive, and all of
the other internal components except those necessary to
maintain system memory and allow for restarting. Your
Tablet PC can be put in Standby mode by:
If your Tablet PC is suspended, pushing the Suspend/
Resume button will return your Tablet PC to active
operation. You can tell whether or not your system is in
Standby mode by looking at the Power indicator. See
“Power Indicator” on page 16. If the indicator is visible
and not flashing, your Tablet PC is fully operational. If
the indicator is both visible and flashing, your Tablet PC
is in Standby mode. If the indicator is not visible at all,
the power is off or your Tablet PC is in Hibernate mode

information, and any other data required to support the
operation(s) in progress. When you resume operation
T Series.book Page 37 Friday, May 5, 2006 9:34 AM
Getting Started
from Standby mode, your Tablet PC will return to the
point where it left off. To resume operation, you must
use the Suspend/Resume button to resume operation,
and there must be an adequate power source available,
or your Tablet PC will not resume.
If you are running your Tablet PC on
battery power, be aware that the battery
continues to discharge while your Tablet
PC is in Standby mode, though not as fast
as when fully operational.
HIBERNATE MODE
The Hibernate mode saves the contents of your
Tablet PC’s system memory to the hard drive as a part of
the Suspend/Resume mode. Your Tablet PC is preconfigured to perform this function.
■
Standby or Hibernate modes should not
be used with certain PC Cards. Check
your PC Card documentation for more
information.
■
Disabling the Suspend/Resume button
prevents it from being used to put your
Tablet PC in Standby or Hibernate
mode. The resume function of the
button cannot be disabled.
■
If your Tablet PC is actively accessing
information when you enter Standby or
Hibernate mode, changes to open files
are not lost. The files are left open and
memory is kept active during Standby
mode or the memory is transferred to
the hard drive during Hibernate mode.
■
■
When PC Cards or external devices are
in use, Save-to-Disk mode cannot return
to the exact state prior to suspension,
because all peripheral devices will be reinitialized when the system restarts.
The main advantage of using Hibernate
mode is that power is not required to
maintain your data. This is very important if you will be leaving your Tablet PC
in a suspended state for a prolonged
period of time. The drawback of using
Hibernate mode is that it lengthens the
power down and power up sequences
and resets peripheral devices.
Using Hibernate Mode
Hibernate default setting is enabled for Windows XP.
1. From the Start menu, select Settings, and then select
Control Panel -> Power Options.
2. Select Hibernation, and then select the box to
enable or disable this feature.
To use Hibernate mode with your system:
1. Click on the Start button, click Shut Down.
2. Select Hibernate option from the “What do you
want the computer to do” list.
DISPLAY TIMEOUT
The Video Timeout is one of the power management
parameters. This feature saves power by turning off the
display if there is no keyboard or pointer activity for the
user selected timeout period. Any keyboard or pointer
activity will cause the display to restart automatically.
This feature is independent of the Suspend/Resume
button and can be enabled and disabled in Windows
Power Management.
HARD DISK TIMEOUT
The Hard Disk Timeout is another one of the power
management parameters. This feature saves power by
turning off the hard drive if there is no hard drive
activity for the user selected timeout period. Any
attempt to access the hard drive will cause it to restart
automatically. This feature is independent of the

User-Installable Features
Lithium ion Battery
Your LifeBook T4200 Series Tablet PC has a Lithium
ion battery that provides power for operating your
Tablet PC when no external power source is available.
The battery is durable and long lasting, but should not
be exposed to extreme temperatures, high voltages,
chemicals or other hazards.
The Lithium ion battery operating time may become
shorter if it is used under the following conditions:
■
■
When used at temperatures lower than 41° F (5° C) or
higher than 95° F (35° C). Extreme temperatures not
only reduce charging efficiency, but can also cause
battery deterioration. The Charging icon on the Status
Indicator panel will flash when you try to charge a
battery that is outside its operating temperature range.
See “Battery Charging/ Level Indicators” on page 16.
When using a high current device such as a modem,
CD-ROM drive, or hard drive, using the AC adapter
will conserve your battery life.
■
■
Do not leave a faulty battery in your
Tablet PC. It may damage your AC
adapter, optional Auto/Airline adapter,
another battery or your Tablet PC itself.
It may also prevent operation of your
Tablet PC by draining all available current into the bad battery.
Under federal, state, or local law it may
be illegal to dispose of batteries by
putting them in the trash. Please take
care of our environment and dispose of
batteries properly. Check with your local
government authority for details
regarding recycling or disposing of old
batteries. If you cannot find this information elsewhere, contact your support
representative at 1-800-8Fujitsu.
Actual battery life will vary based on
screen brightness, applications, features,
power management settings, battery
condition and other customer preferences.
CD-ROM drive or hard drive usage may
also have a significant impact on battery
life. The battery charging capacity is
reduced as the battery ages. If your
battery is running low quickly, you should
replace it with a new one.
RECHARGING THE BATTERY
If you want to know the condition of the Lithium ion
battery, check the Battery Level indicator located on the
Status Indicator panel. The indicator changes as the
battery level changes.
The Lithium ion battery is recharged internally using the
AC adapter or Auto/Airline adapter. To recharge the
battery make sure the battery that needs to be charged is
installed in your Tablet PC and connect the AC or Auto/
Airline adapter.
Make sure that the Battery Charging
indicator and the percentage charge is
shown inside the Battery Level icon on the
Status Indicator Panel.
There is no memory effect on the Lithium ion battery,
therefore you do not need to discharge the battery
completely before recharging. The charge times will be
longer if your Tablet PC is in use while the battery is
charging. If you want to charge the battery more quickly,
put your Tablet PC into Standby mode, or turn it off
while the adapter is charging the battery. See “Power
Management” on page 36.
Using heavy current devices such as a
modem or frequent CD-ROM and
PCMCIA powered external device accesses
may prevent charging completely.
Low Battery State
When the battery is running low, your Tablet PC will
beep every 15 seconds and the Battery Level indicator
will flash. If you do not respond to the low battery
alarm, the batteries will continue to discharge until they
are too low to operate. When this happens there will be a
multiple beep alarm and the Battery Level indicator will
show a dead battery. Your Tablet PC will then go into
Standby mode to try and protect your data for as long as
possible. There is no guarantee that your data will not be
lost once the Tablet PC reaches this point.
■
You may not be able to hear the alarm if
the volume control is set too low or is
turned off by the hardware or software.
However, you will be able to see the
Battery Level indicator flash. Once the
low battery alarm occurs you must save
all your data and put your Tablet PC into
Standby mode until you can provide a
new power source. You should provide a
charged battery or AC or Auto/Airline
Adapter as soon as possible.
■
When you are in Standby mode there
must always be at least one power
source active. If you remove all power
sources while your Tablet PC is in
Standby mode, any data that has not
been saved to the hard drive will be lost.
43
T Series.book Page 44 Friday, May 5, 2006 9:34 AM
LifeBook T4200 Series Tablet PC - Section Four
Dead Battery Suspend mode shows on the Status indicator just like the normal Standby mode. Once your
Tablet PC goes into Dead Battery Suspend mode you
will be unable to resume operation until you provide
a source of power either from an adapter, or a charged
battery. Once you have provided power, you will need to
press the Suspend/Resume button to resume operation.
In the Dead Battery Suspend mode, your data can be
maintained for some time, but if a power source is not
provided promptly, the Power indicator will stop
flashing and go out, meaning that you have lost the data
that was not stored. Once you provide power, you can
continue to use your Tablet PC while an adapter is
charging the battery.
Shorted Batteries
The Status Indicator panel uses a symbol inside the
battery outline of the Battery Level indicator to display
the operating level available in that battery.
(See figure on page 16) If this display shows a Shorted
Battery, it means that the battery is damaged and must
be replaced so it does not damage any other parts of your
Tablet PC.
REPLACING THE BATTERY
Your LifeBook T4200 Series Tablet PC comes with one
battery pack; you might want to consider purchasing a
spare. By keeping a spare battery fully charged, you can
immediately swap with one that is not charged.
There are two ways to swap batteries: cold-swapping and
warm-swapping. Cold-swapping means swapping
batteries when the system has been powered down;
warm-swapping is performed when the system is in
Standby mode.
Cold-swapping batteries

architecture, which means they don’t need a power
source to retain data.
Memory Stick is a flash memory technology developed
by Sony Electronics. Memory Stick allows you to record,
transfer and share digital content, such as digital
pictures, movies, music, voice, and computer data and
applications.
Secure Digital (SD) Cards are very similar to Memory
Sticks, but they are shorter. Like the Memory Stick, SD
Cards allow portable storage among a variety of devices,
such as cell phones, GPS systems, digital cameras, and
PDAs. SD Cards transfer data quickly, with low battery
consumption. Like the memory stick, it uses flash
memory architecture.
INSERTING MEMORY STICK/SD CARDS
Memory Sticks and SD Cards are inserted in the
Memory Stick/SD Card slot (Figure 4-9). To insert a
Memory Stick or SD Card, follow these steps:
■
inserting or removing a Memory Stick or
SD Card during your LifeBook Tablet

printer, without the use of a cable. (See Figure 2-7 on
page 14 for location)
It is important to keep in mind that while carrying out
this form of communication, both devices must be
placed so their infrared ports are directly facing each
other without obstruction. The devices must also be
separated by at least 6" but no more than 36" for
maximum performance.
The following conditions may interfere with infrared
communications:

Troubleshooting
Restoring Your
Pre-installed Software
The Drivers and Applications Restore (DAR) DVD
contains sets of device drivers and Fujitsu utilities (in
specific directories) that are unique to your Tablet PC
configuration for use as documented below.
In order to install applications and/or
drivers from the DAR DVD, you will need
access to a DVD drive. If you do not have a
built-in DVD drive, you will need to connect
an external DVD drive to your system.
If you have access to the internet, visit the
Fujitsu Support website at http://
www.computers.us.fujitsu.com/support to
check for the most current information,
drivers and hints on how to perform
recovery and system updates.
RE-INSTALLING INDIVIDUAL
DRIVERS AND APPLICATIONS
The Drivers and Applications CD can be used to selectively re-install drivers and/or applications that may
have been un-installed or corrupted.
There may be certain free third-party
applications pre-installed on your system
that are not on the DAR CD. The latest
versions of the applications can be
downloaded from the third-party’s website.
To re-install drivers and/or applications:
1. Boot up the system and insert the DAR CD after
Windows has started. A Fujitsu Installer screen is
displayed after the CD is inserted.
2. After reading the License Agreement, click [I agree].
3. A window will appear containing a list of applications, drivers, and utilities that you can install from
the Drivers and Applications CD.
The components listed are color-coded in
terms of their install status. Blue indicates
that the component can be installed. Green
indicates that the component needs to be
installed separately. Grey indicates a
component that is already installed; grey
items can be reinstalled, but prior to
installation you will receive a reminder that
the component is already installed and may
need to be uninstalled prior to
reinstallation.
4. In the list, check off all the components you want to
install. If you want to install all components, click
[Select All]. Clicking [Select All] will select all of the
blue-coded components; you must select grey and
green components separately.
5. Once you have selected the components you wish to

two utilities:
■
■
The Recovery utility allows you to restore the original
contents of the C: drive.
The Hard Disk Data Delete utility on this disc is used
to delete all data on your hard disk and prevent it from
being reused. Do not use Hard Disk Data Delete
unless you are absolutely certain that you want to
erase your entire hard disk, including all partitions.
• The use of this disc requires that you
have a device capable of reading DVDs
attached to your system. If you do not
have a built-in DVD player, you will need
to attach an external player. For more
information on available external devices,

KEYBOARD
Caring for your Keyboard
The keyboard of your computer is a very sensitive
instrument. It is made up of many switches that are
activated when you press on the keys. The keyboard is a
major component of the heat dissipation system in a
Tablet PC. Due to heat and size considerations the
keyboard is not sealed. Because the keys are so close
together, it is not easy for the user to see when liquids
have fallen onto the circuitry below the keys.
Attempting to clean the keyboard with a spray on
cleaner or rag soaked with cleaner the liquid can drip
onto the circuitry sight unseen. Once the liquid seeps
between the layers of circuitry, it can cause corrosion or
other damage to the circuits. This can result in keys
which no longer operate, or which, when pressed, record
the wrong characters and other similar failures.

FCC REGULATORY INFORMATION
Please note the following regulatory information related to the
wireless LAN device.
Regulatory Notes and Statements
Wireless LAN, Health and Authorization for use
Radio frequency electromagnetic energy is emitted from Wireless LAN (WLAN) devices. The energy levels of these emissions,
however, are far much less than the electromagnetic energy
emissions from wireless devices such as mobile phones. Wireless LAN devices are safe for use by consumers because they
operate within the guidelines found in radio frequency safety
standards and recommendations. The use of Wireless LAN
devices may be restricted in some situations or environments,
such as:
■
On board an airplane, or
■
In an explosive environment, or
■ In situations where the interference risk to other devices or
services is perceived or identified as harmful.
In cases in which the policy regarding use of Wireless LAN
devices in specific environments is not clear (e.g., airports,
hospitals, chemical/oil/gas industrial plants, hospitals, private
buildings), obtain authorization to use these devices prior to
operating the equipment.
Regulatory Information/Disclaimers
Installation and use of this Wireless LAN device must be in
strict accordance with the instructions included in the user
documentation provided with the product. Any changes or
modifications made to this device that are not expressly
approved by the manufacturer may void the user’s authority to
operate the equipment. The manufacturer is not responsible for
any radio or television interference caused by unauthorized
modification of this device, or the substitution or attachment of
connecting cables and equipment other than those specified by
the manufacturer. It is the responsibility of the user to correct
any interference caused by such unauthorized modification,
substitution or attachment. The manufacturer and its authorized resellers or distributors will assume no liability for any
damage or violation of government regulations arising from
failure to comply with these guidelines.
This device must not be co-located or operating in conjunction
with any other antenna or transmitter.
Federal Communications Commission statement
This device complies with Part 15 of FCC Rules.
Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This
device may not cause interference, and, (2) This device must
accept any interference, including interference that may cause
undesired operation of this device.
FCC Interference Statement
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the
limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the
FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio
frequency energy. If not installed and used in accordance with
the instructions, it may cause harmful interference to radio
communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.
If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or
television reception, which can be determined by turning the
equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try and correct
the interference by one or more of the following measures:
1. Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
2.
Increase the distance between the equipment and the
receiver.
3.
Connect the equipment to an outlet on a circuit different
from the one the receiver is connected to.
4.
Consult the dealer or an experienced technician for help.
FCC Radio Frequency Exposure statement
The available scientific evidence does not show that any health
problems are associated with using low power wireless devices.
There is no proof, however, that these low power wireless
devices are absolutely safe. Low power wireless devices emit low
levels of radio frequency energy (RF) in the microwave range
while being used. Whereas high levels of RF can produce health
effects (by heating tissue), exposure to low-level RF that does
not produce heating effects causes no known adverse health
effects. Many studies of low-level RF exposure have not found
any biological effects. Some studies have suggested that some
biological effects might occur, but such findings have not been
confirmed by additional research. The wireless LAN radio
device has been tested and found to comply with FCC radiation
exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled equipment and
meets the FCC radio frequency (RF) Exposure Guidelines in
Supplement C to OET65.
The maximum SAR value measured from the devices are:
■ Intel PROSet Wireless LAN (WM3945ABG): 1.51 W/kg
■
Intel PROSet Wireless LAN (WM3945ABG) + Bluetooth
Simultaneous: 1.29 W/kg
■
Atheros Wireless LAN (AR5BXB6): 1.59 W/kg
■
Atheros Wireless LAN (AR5BXB6) + Bluetooth
Simultaneous: 1.32 W/kg
Export restrictions
This product or software contains encryption code which may
not be exported or transferred from the US or Canada without
an approved US Department of Commerce export license. This

Before Using the Wireless LAN
This manual describes the procedures required to properly setup and configure the integrated Wireless LAN
Mini-PCI device (referred to as "WLAN device" in the
rest of the manual). Before using the WLAN device, read
this manual carefully to ensure it's correct operation.
Keep this manual in a safe place for future reference.
■
Encoding of data is modulated using Direct Sequence
Spread Spectrum (DSSS) and Complementary Code
Keying (CCK) when the WLAN device is operating in
IEEE 802.11b mode and Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) when operating in
IEEE802.11a or IEEE802.11g mode.
Wireless LAN Devices Covered by this Document
This document is applicable to systems containing one
of the following two devices. Most of the procedures are
identical. Sections that differ between the two devices
have been noted in the text:
■
The WLAN device is Wi-Fi certified and operates at
the maximum data transfer rate of 54 Mbps in
IEEE802.11a or IEEE802.11g mode and 11 Mbps in
IEEE802.11b mode.
■
The WLAN device supports the following encryption
methods - WEP, TKIP, and AES encryption.
■
Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG (WM3945ABG)
Network Connection (802.11a+b/g)
■
Atheros® AR5006EXS (AR5BXB6) Mini-Card
Wireless network card (802.11a+b/g)
Characteristics of the WLAN Device
■
The WLAN device is a Mini-PCI card attached to the
main board of the mobile computer.
■
It operates in two license-free RF bands, therefore
eliminating the need to procure an FCC license to
operate. It operates in the 2.4GHz Industrial, Scientific, and Medical (ISM) RF band and in the lower and
middle bands of the 5GHz Unlicensed National Information Infrastructure (UNII) bands.
■
The WLANs are capable of three operating modes,
IEEE802.11a, IEEE802.11b and IEEE802.11g, wireless
LAN standards governed by the IEEE (Institute of
Electronics and Electrical Engineers).
WIRELESS LAN MODES USING THIS DEVICE
Ad Hoc Mode
(See Figure A-1)
"Ad Hoc Mode" refers to a wireless network architecture
where wireless network connectivity between multiple
computers is established without a central wireless
network device, typically known as Access Point(s).
Connectivity is accomplished using only client devices
in a peer-to-peer fashion. That is why Ad Hoc networks
are also known as peer-to-peer networks. Ad Hoc
networks are an easy and inexpensive method for establishing network connectivity between multiple
computers.
Ad Hoc mode requires that the SSID, network authentication, and encryption key settings are identically
configured on all computers in the Ad Hoc network.
Access Point (Infrastructure) Mode
(See Figure A-2)
Infrastructure mode refers to a wireless network architecture in which devices communicate with wireless or
Figure A-1. Ad Hoc Mode Network

T Series.book Page 95 Friday, May 5, 2006 9:34 AM
W i r e l e s s L A N U s e r ’s G u i d e
wired network devices through an Access Point. In
infrastructure mode, wireless devices can communicate
with each other or with a wired network. Corporate
wireless networks operate in infrastructure mode
because they require access to the wired LAN in order to
access computers, devices, and services such as file
servers, printers, and databases.
How to Handle This Device
The WLAN device comes pre-installed in your mobile
computer. Under normal circumstances, it should not
be necessary for you to remove or re-install it. The
Operating System that your mobile computer comes
with has been pre-configured to support the WLAN
device.
WIRELESS NETWORK CONSIDERATIONS
■
The WLAN devices support IEEE802.11a+b/g.
■
The devices operate in the 2.4GHz ISM band the 5
GHz lower and middle UNII bands.
■
■
2.4GHz frequency range that IEEE802.11b/g devices
operate in. Interference by microwaves does not occur
with IEEE802.11a radio which operates in the 5 GHz
RF band.
■
Wireless devices that transmit in the 2.4 GHz frequency range may interfere with the operation of
WLAN devices in IEEE802.11b/g modes. Interference
symptoms include reduced throughput, intermittent
disconnects, and large amounts of frame errors. It is
HIGHLY recommended that interfering devices be
powered off to ensure proper operation of the WLAN.
DEACTIVATING THE WLAN DEVICE
Deactivation of the WLAN device may be desired in
certain circumstances (to extend battery life) or where
certain environments require it (i.e. hospitals, clinics,
airplanes, etc.). Fujitsu mobile computers employ two
methods with which to deactivate the WLAN device:
■
Using the Wireless On/Off Switch, or,
■
In Windows, using the Intel PROSet Software or
Atheros Client Utility software.
The maximum range of the WLAN device indoors is
typically 80 feet (25 meters). Please note that the maximum range you achieve may be shorter or longer
than 80 feet, depending on factors such as access point
transmit power, number and density of obstructions,
or external RF interference.
Deactivation using the Wireless On/Off Switch
The WLAN device can be deactivated quickly and efficiently by toggling the Wireless On/Off Switch to the Off
position. (Figure A-3)
Microwave ovens will interfere with the operation of
WLAN device as microwave ovens operate in the same

connection
Possible Cause
Incorrect network
name (SSID) or
network key
Possible Solution
Ad hoc connection: verify that the network names (SSID’s) and network
keys (WEP) of all computers to be connected have been configured
correctly. SSID’s and WEP key values must be identical on each
machine.
Access Point (Infrastructure) connection: set the network name (SSID)
and network key to the same values as those of the access point.
Set the Network Authentication value identically to that of the Access
Point. Please consult your network administrator for this value, if
necessary.
For the method of setting network authentication, refer to the section of
this chapter related to the configuration tool or utility you are using.·
Weak received signal
strength and/or link
quality
Ad hoc connection: Retry connection after shortening the distance to
the destination computer or removing any obstacles for better sight.
Access Point (Infrastructure) connection: Retry connection after shortening the distance to the access point or removing any obstacles for
better sight.
(See Confirming connection on page 103 for more information).
The WLAN device
has been deactivated

Wireless LAN Glossary
Ad Hoc Mode
MAC address (Media Access Control Address)
Ad Hoc Mode refers to a wireless network architecture
where wireless network connectivity between multiple
computers is established without a central wireless
network device, typically known as Access Points.
Connectivity is accomplished using only client devices in
a peer-to-peer fashion. For details, refer to “Ad hoc
connection” on page 94.
A MAC address (also called an Ethernet address or IEEE
MAC address) is the 48-bit address (typically written as
twelve hexadecimal digits, 0 through 9 and A through F,
or as six hexadecimal numbers separated by periods or
colons, e.g., 0080002012ef, 0:80:0:2:20:ef) which
uniquely identifies a computer that has an Ethernet
interface.
Channel
MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit)
Range of narrow-band frequencies used by the WLAN
device to transmit data. IEEE802.11b/g - 11 channels, 22
MHz wide channels.
The maximum size of data which can be transmitted at
one time in networks including the Internet. In an environment whose maximum size of data is too large to
correctly receive data, normal communications can be
restored by setting the size of MTU to a smaller value.
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
A protocol that provides a means to dynamically allocate
IP addresses to computers on a local area network.
DNS (Domain Name System)
A data query service that provides a mechanism with
which to translate host names into Internet addresses.
IEEE802.11a
Wireless LAN standard that supports a maximum data
rate of 54 Mbps. 802.11a devices operate in the 5 GHz
lower and middle UNII bands.
IEEE802.11b
Wireless LAN standard that supports a maximum data
rate of 11 Mbps. 802.11b devices operate in the 2.4 GHz
ISM band.
Access point
Network key
Data that is used for encrypting data in data communication. The personal computer uses the same network
key both for data encryption and decryption, therefore,
it is necessary to set the same network key as the other
side of communication.
Network name (SSID: Security Set Identifier)
When a wireless LAN network is configured, grouping is
performed to avoid interference or data theft. This
grouping is performed with “Network name (SSID)”. In
order to improve security, the network key is set
allowing no communication unless “Network name
(SSID)” coincides with the network key.
Open system authentication
Wireless network device used to bridge wireless and
wired network traffic.
Null authentication method specified in the 802.11 standard that performs no authentication checks on a wireless client before allowing it to associate.
IP address
PPPoE (Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet)
The logical 32-bit host address defined by the Internet
Protocol that uniquely identifies a computer on a
network. The IP address is usually expressed in dotted
decimal notation.
A method of allowing the authentication protocol
adopted in telephone line connection (PPP) to be used
over an Ethernet.
LAN (Local Area Network)
A procedure or rule of delivering data among
computers. Ordered data communication is allowed by
making all conditions required for communication
including the method of data transmission/reception
and actions upon communication errors into procedures.
A LAN or Local Area Network is a computer network (or
data communications network) which is confined to a
limited geographical area.
Protocol

T Series.book Page 106 Friday, May 5, 2006 9:34 AM
LifeBook T4200 Series Tablet PC - Appendix A
Shared key authentication
802.11 network authentication method in which the AP
sends the client device a challenge text packet that the
client must then encrypt with the correct WEP key and
return to the AP. If the client has the wrong key or no
key, authentication will fail and the client will not be
allowed to associate with the AP. Shared key authentication is not considered secure, because a hacker who
detects both the clear-text challenge and the same challenge encrypted with a WEP key can decipher the WEP
key.
SSID (Service Set Identifier)
Service Set Identifier, a 32-character unique identifier
attached to the header of packets sent over a WLAN that
acts as a password when a mobile device tries to connect
to the BSS. The SSID differentiates one WLAN from
another, so all access points and all devices attempting to
connect to a specific WLAN must use the same SSID. A
device will not be permitted to join the BSS unless it can
provide the unique SSID. Because the SSID is broadcast
in plain text, it does not supply any security to the
network.
Subnet mask
TCP-IP network is controlled by being divided into
multiple smaller networks (subnets). IP address consists
of the subnet address and the address of each computer.
Subnet mask defines how many bits of IP address
comprise the subnet address. The same value shall be set
among computers communicating with each other.
TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet
Protocol)
A standard protocol of the Internet.
Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi, or Wireless Fidelity, is a set of standards for wireless local area networks (WLAN) based on the IEEE
802.11 specifications. Certified products can use the
official Wi-Fi logo, which indicates that the product is
interoperable with any other product also showing that
logo.

IP address information
IP addressing is much more complicated
than can be briefly explained in this
document. You are advised to consult with
your network administrator for additional
information.
If IP address is unknown, set IP address as follows:
If you have an access point (DHCP server) on the
network, set the IP address as follows:
[Obtain an IP address automatically]
A DHCP server is a server that
automatically assigns IP addresses to
computers or other devices in the network.
There is no DHCP server for the AdHoc
network.
If the IP address is already assigned to the computer in
the network, ask the network administrator to check the
IP address to be set for the computer.
If no access point is found in the network:
An IP address is expressed with four values in the range
between 1 and 255.
Set the each computer as follows: The value in parentheses is a subnet mask.

Using the Fingerprint Sensor
Fingerprint Sensor Device
INTRODUCING THE
FINGERPRINT SENSOR DEVICE
Your system has a fingerprint sensor device just below
the pen storage location. (Figure B-1)
INSTALLING OMNIPASS
If OmniPass has already been installed on your system,
skip this section and go directly to “User Enrollment” on
page 114. You can determine whether OmniPass has
already been installed by checking to see if the following
are present:
■
■
The presence of the gold key-shaped OmniPass icon in
the system tray at the bottom right of the screen.
The presence of the Softex program group in the
Programs group of the Start menu
System Requirements
The OmniPass application requires space on your hard
drive; it also requires specific Operating Systems (OS’s).
The minimum requirements are as follows:
■
■
Figure B-1 Fingerprint sensor
With a fingerprint sensor, you can avoid having to enter
a username and password every time you want to:
■
Log onto Windows
■
Recover from suspend mode
■
Cancel a password-protected screen saver
■
Log into homepages that require a username and password
After you have “enrolled” - or registered - your fingerprint, you can simply swipe your fingertip over the
sensor for the system recognize you.
The fingerprint sensor uses Softex OmniPass which
provides password management capabilities to
Microsoft Windows operating systems. OmniPass
enables you to use a "master password" for all Windows,
applications, and on-line passwords.
OmniPass requires users to authenticate themselves
using the fingerprint sensor before granting access to the
Windows desktop. This device results in a secure
authentication system for restricting access to your
computer, applications, websites, and other passwordprotected resources.
OmniPass presents a convenient graphical user interface, through which you can securely manage passwords, users, and multiple identities for each user.
GETTING STARTED
This section guides you through the preparation of your
system for the OmniPass fingerprint recognition
application. You will be led through the OmniPass
installation process. You will also be led through the
procedure of enrolling your first user into OmniPass.

proceeding with OmniPass installation.
To install OmniPass on your system you must:
1. Insert the installation media for the OmniPass application into the appropriate drive. If you are
installing from CD-ROM or DVD-ROM, you must
find and launch the OmniPass installation program
(setup.exe) from the media.
2. Follow the directions provided in the OmniPass
installation program. Specify a location to which
you would like OmniPass installed. It is recommended that you NOT install OmniPass in the root
directory (e.g. C:\).
3. Once OmniPass has completed installation you will
be prompted to restart you system. Once your
system has rebooted you will be able to use
OmniPass. If you choose not to restart immediately
after installation, OmniPass will not be available for
use until the next reboot.
The installation program automatically places an icon
(Softex OmniPass) in the Windows Control Panel as
well as a golden key shaped icon in the taskbar.

Verifying Information about OmniPass
After you have completed installing OmniPass and
restarted your system, you may wish to check the version
of OmniPass on your system.
During OmniPass user enrollment a "master password”
is created for the enrolled user. This master password
“replaces” all other passwords for sites you register with
OmniPass.
To check the version information of OmniPass:
Example: A user, John, installs OmniPass on his system
(his home computer) and enrolls an OmniPass user with
username “John_01” and password “freq14”. He then
goes to his webmail site to log onto his account. He
inputs his webmail credentials as usual (username
“John_02” and password “lifebook”), but instead of
clicking [Submit], he directs OmniPass to Remember
Password. Now whenever he returns to that site,
OmniPass will prompt him to supply access credentials.
1. From the Windows Desktop, double-click the keyshaped OmniPass icon in the taskbar (usually
located in the lower right corner of the screen),
or,
Click the Start button, select Settings, and click
Control Panel (if you are using Windows XP you
will see the Control Panel directly in the Start menu;
click it, then click Switch to Classic View). Doubleclick Softex OmniPass in the Control Panel, and the
OmniPass Control Center will appear. If it does not
appear, then the program is not properly installed,
or,
Click the Start button, select Programs, and from
the submenu select the Softex program group, from
that submenu click OmniPass Control Center.
2. Select the About tab at the top of the OmniPass
Control Panel. The About tab window appears with
version information about OmniPass.
Uninstalling OmniPass
For uninstallation, OmniPass requires that
the user uninstalling OmniPass have
administrative privileges to the system. If
your current user does not have
administrative privileges, log out and then
log in with an administrator user before
proceeding with OmniPass uninstallation.
To remove the OmniPass application from your system:
1. Click Start on the Windows taskbar. Select Settings,
and then Control Panel.
2. Double-click Add/Remove Programs.
3. Select OmniPass, and then click Change/Remove.
4. Follow the directions to uninstall the OmniPass
application.
5. Once OmniPass has finished uninstalling, reboot
your system when prompted.
USER ENROLLMENT
Before you can use any OmniPass features you must first
enroll a user into OmniPass.
Master Password Concept
Computer resources are often protected with passwords.
Whether you are logging into your computer, accessing
your email, e-banking, paying bills online, or accessing
network resources, you often have to supply credentials
to gain access. This can result in dozens of sets of
credentials that you have to remember.
114
John enters his OmniPass user credentials (“John_01”
and “freq14”) in the OmniPass authentication prompt,
and he is allowed into his webmail account. He can do
this with as many websites or password protected
resources he likes, and he will gain access to all those
sites with his OmniPass user credentials (“John_01” and
“freq14”). This is assuming he is accessing those sites
with the system onto which he enrolled his OmniPass
user. OmniPass does not actually change the credentials
of the password protected resource. If John were to go to
an Internet cafe to access his webmail, he would need to
enter his original webmail credentials (“John_02” and
“lifebook”) to gain access. If he attempts his OmniPass
user credentials on a system other than where he
enrolled that OmniPass user, he will not gain access.
The enrollment procedure assumes you
have no hardware authentication devices
or alternate storage locations that you
wish to integrate with OmniPass. If you
desire such functionality, consult the
appropriate sections of this document.
Basic Enrollment
The Enrollment Wizard will guide you through the
process of enrolling a user. Unless you specified otherwise, after OmniPass installation the Enrollment Wizard
will launch on Windows login. If you do not see the
Enrollment Wizard, you can bring it up by clicking Start
on the Windows taskbar; select Programs; select Softex;
click OmniPass Enrollment Wizard.
1. Click Enroll to proceed to username and password
verification. By default, the OmniPass Enrollment
Wizard enters the credentials of the currently logged
in Windows user.
2. Enter the password you use to log in to Windows.
This will become the “master password” for this
OmniPass user. In most cases, the Domain: value
will be your Windows computer name. In a corporate environment, or when accessing corporate
resources, the Domain: may not be your Windows
computer name. Click [Next] to continue.
T Series.book Page 115 Friday, May 5, 2006 9:34 AM
Using the Fingerprint Sensor
3. In this step OmniPass captures your fingerprint.
Refer to “Enrolling a Fingerprint” on page 115 for
additional information.
4. Next, choose how OmniPass notifies you of various
events. We recommend you keep Taskbar Tips on
Beginner mode taskbar tips and Audio Tips on at
least Prompt with system beeps only until you get
accustomed to how OmniPass operates. Click
[Next] to proceed with user enrollment. You will
then see a Congratulations screen indicating your
completion of user enrollment.
5. Click [Done] to exit the OmniPass Enrollment
Wizard. You will be asked if you’d like to log in to
OmniPass with your newly enrolled user; click
[Yes].
Enrolling a Fingerprint
Enrolling a fingerprint will increase the security of your
system and streamline the authentication procedure.
You enroll fingerprints in the OmniPass Control Center.
With an OmniPass user logged in, double-click the
system tray OmniPass icon. Select the User Settings tab
and click Enrollment under the User Settings area. Click
Enroll Authentication Device and authenticate at the
authentication prompt to start device enrollment.
1. During initial user enrollment, you will be
prompted to select the finger you wish to enroll.
Fingers that have already been enrolled will be
marked by a green check. The finger you select to
enroll at this time will be marked by a red arrow.
OmniPass will allow you re-enroll a finger. If you
choose a finger that has already been enrolled and
continue enrollment, OmniPass will enroll the
fingerprint, overwriting the old fingerprint. Select a
finger to enroll and click [Next].
2. It is now time for OmniPass to capture your selected
fingerprint. It may take a several capture attempts
before OmniPass acquires your fingerprint. Should
OmniPass fail to acquire your fingerprint, or if the
capture screen times out, click [Back] to restart the
fingerprint enrollment process.
Your system has a “swipe” fingerprint sensor (See
Figure B-1). A swipe sensor is small and resembles a
skinny elongated rectangle. To capture a fingerprint,
gently swipe or pull your fingertip over the sensor
(starting at the second knuckle) towards yourself.
Swiping too fast or too slow will result in a failed
capture. The Choose Finger screen has a [Practice]
button; click it to practice capturing your fingerprint. When you are comfortable with how your
fingerprint is captured, proceed to enroll a finger.
3. Once OmniPass has successfully acquired the
fingerprint, the Verify Fingerprint screen will automatically appear. To verify your enrolled finger-
print, swipe your fingertip over the sensor four
times to verify. Successful fingerprint verification
will show a green fingerprint in the capture window
and the text Verification Successful under the
capture window. (An unsuccessful swipe will be
indicated in red.)
USING OMNIPASS
You are now ready to begin using OmniPass. Used regularly, OmniPass will streamline your authentications.
Password Replacement
You will often use the password replacement function.
When you go to a restricted access website (e.g., your
bank, your web-based email, online auction or payment
sites), you are always prompted to enter your login
credentials. OmniPass can detect these prompts and you
can teach OmniPass your login credentials. The next
time you go to that website, you can authenticate with
your fingerprint to gain access.
OmniPass Authentication Toolbar
After installing OmniPass and restarting, you will notice
a dialog you have not seen before at Windows Logon.
This is the OmniPass Authentication Toolbar, and it is
displayed whenever the OmniPass authentication
system is invoked. The OmniPass authentication system
may be invoked frequently: during Windows Logon,
during OmniPass Logon, when unlocking your workstation, when resuming from standby or hibernate, when
unlocking a password-enabled screensaver, during password replacement for remembered site or application
logins, and more. When you see this toolbar, OmniPass
is prompting you to authenticate.
The Logon Authentication window indicates what
OmniPass-restricted function you are attempting. The
icons in the lower left (fingerprint and key) show what
authentication methods are available to you. Selected
authentication methods are highlighted while unselected
methods are not. When you click the icon for an unselected authentication method, the authentication
prompt associated with that method is displayed.
When prompted to authenticate, you must supply the
appropriate credentials: an enrolled finger for the fingerprint capture window or your master password for the
master password prompt (the key icon).
Remembering a Password
OmniPass can remember any application, GUI, or password protected resource that has a password prompt.
Using the following procedure, you can store a set of
credentials into OmniPass. These credentials will then
be linked to your “master password” or fingerprint.
Go to a site that requires a login (username and password), but do not log in yet. At the site login prompt,
enter your username and password in the prompted
115
T Series.book Page 116 Friday, May 5, 2006 9:34 AM
LifeBook T4200 Series Tablet PC – Appendix B
fields, but do not enter the site (do not hit [Enter],
[Submit], [OK], or Login). Right-click the OmniPass
system tray icon and select Remember Password from
the submenu. The Windows arrow cursor will change to
a golden key OmniPass cursor. Click this OmniPass
cursor in the login prompt area, but do not click the
[Login] or [Submit] button.
Associating a Friendly Name
After clicking the OmniPass key cursor near the login
prompt, OmniPass will prompt you to enter a “friendly
name” for this site. You should enter something that
reminds you of the website, the company, or the service
you are logging into. In its secure database, OmniPass
associates this friendly name with this website.
Additional Settings for Remembering a Site
When OmniPass prompts you to enter a “friendly
name” you also have the opportunity to set how
OmniPass authenticates you to this site. There are three
effective settings for how OmniPass handles a remembered site.
The default setting is Automatically click the “OK” or
“Submit” button for this password protected site once
the user is authenticated. With this setting, each time
you navigate to this site OmniPass will prompt you for
your master password or fingerprint authentication
device. Once you have authenticated with OmniPass,
you will automatically be logged into the site.
Less secure is the option to Automatically enter this
password protected site when it is activated. Do not
prompt for authentication. Check the upper box to get
this setting, and each time you navigate to this site
OmniPass will log you into the site without prompting
you to authenticate.
This setting is more convenient in that
whenever you go to a site remembered
with this setting, you will bypass any
authentication procedure and gain instant
access to the site. But should you leave
your system unattended with your
OmniPass user logged in, anyone using
your system can browse to your password
protected sites and gain automatic access.
now stored in the OmniPass secure database. The
OmniPass authentication settings (Settings for this
Password Site) can always be changed in Vault Management.
Logging in to a Remembered Site
Whether or not OmniPass prompts you to authenticate
when you return to a remembered site is determined by
Settings for this Password Site and can be changed in
Vault Management.
The following cases are applicable to using OmniPass to
login to: Windows, remembered websites, and all other
password protected resources.
With Master Password
Once you return to a site you have remembered with
OmniPass, you may be presented with a master password prompt. Enter your master password and you will
be allowed into the site.
Logging into Windows with a Fingerprint Device
When logging into Windows with a fingerprint device,
the fingerprint capture window will now appear next to
the Windows Login screen. Place your enrolled fingertip
on the sensor to authenticate. You will be simultaneously logged into Windows and OmniPass. The
capture window will also appear if you have used CtrlAlt-Del to lock a system, and the fingerprint device can
be used to log back in as stated above.
If a machine is locked and OmniPass
detects a different user logging back in
with a fingerprint, the first user will be
logged out and the second user logged in.
In Windows XP, your login options must be set either
for classic login, or for fast user switching and logon
screen to be enabled to use your fingerprint to log on to
Windows. To change this go to Control Panel, select
User Accounts and then click Change the way users log
on or off. If your Windows screensaver is password
protected, the fingerprint capture window will now
appear next to screensaver password dialog during
resume. You can authenticate to your screensaver password prompt with your enrolled finger.
If you uncheck both boxes in Settings for this Password
Site, OmniPass will prompt you for your master password or fingerprint authentication device. Once you
have authenticated with OmniPass your credentials will
be filled in to the site login prompt, but you will have to
click the website [OK], [Submit], or [Login] button to
gain access to the site.
Password Management
OmniPass provides an interface that lets you manage
your passwords. To access this GUI, double-click the
OmniPass key in the system tray. Click Vault Management; you will be prompted to authenticate. Once you
gain access to Vault Management, click Manage Passwords under Vault Settings. You will see the Manage
Passwords interface, with a list of friendly names.
Click Finish to complete the remember password procedure. The site location, the credentials to access the site,
and the OmniPass authentication settings for the site are
You can view the credentials stored for any remembered
website by highlighting the desired resource under Password Protected Dialog and clicking Unmask Values.
116
T Series.book Page 117 Friday, May 5, 2006 9:34 AM
Using the Fingerprint Sensor
Should a password be reset, or an account expire, you
can remove stored credentials from OmniPass. Highlight the desired resource under Password Protected
Dialog and click Delete Page. You will be prompted to
confirm the password deletion.
The two check boxes in Manage Passwords govern
whether OmniPass prompts you to authenticate or
directly logs you into the remembered site.
OmniPass will overwrite an old set of credentials for a
website if you attempt to use Remember Password on an
already remembered site.
The exception to the above rule is the resetting of your
Windows password. If your password is reset in
Windows, then the next time you login to Windows,
OmniPass will detect the password change and prompt
you to “Update” or “Reconfirm” your password with
OmniPass. Enter your new Windows password in the
prompt(s) and click OK and your OmniPass "master
password" will still be your Windows password.
OmniPass User Identities
Identities allow OmniPass users to have multiple
accounts to the same site (e.g., bob@biblomail.com and
boballen@biblomail.com). If OmniPass did not provide
you identities, you would be limited to remembering
one account per site.
To create and manage identities, double-click the
OmniPass key in the system tray. Click Vault Management; OmniPass will prompt you to authenticate. Once
you gain access to Vault Management, click Manage
Identities under Vault Settings. You can only manage
the identities of the currently logged in OmniPass user
To add a new identity, click New Identity or doubleclick Click here to add a new identity. Name the new
identity and click [OK], then click [Apply]. You can now
switch to the new identity and start remembering passwords.
Choosing User Identity during Login
To choose your identity during login, type your username in the User Name: field. Press [Tab] and see that
the Domain: field self-populates. Click the Password:
field to bring the cursor to it, and you will see the pulldown menu in the Identity: field. Select the identity you
wish to login as and then click OK to login.
Switch User Identity
To switch identities at any time, right-click the
OmniPass system tray icon and click Switch User Identity from the submenu. The Switch Identity dialog will
appear. Select the desired identity and then click OK.
Identities and Password Management
On the Manage Passwords interface of the Vault
Management tab of the OmniPass Control Center, there
is a pull-down selection box labeled, Identity. This field
lets you choose which identity you are managing passwords for. When you select an identity here, only those
password protected dialogs that are associated with that
identity are shown. You can perform all the functions
explained in “Password Management” on page 116.
CONFIGURING OMNIPASS
This section gives an overview of both the Export/
Import function and the OmniPass Control Center.
Exporting and Importing Users
Using the OmniPass Control Center, you can export and
import users in and out of OmniPass. The export
process backs up all remembered sites, credentials, and
any enrolled fingerprints for an OmniPass user. All
OmniPass data for a user is backed up to a single
encrypted database file. During the import process, the
Windows login of the exported user is required. If the
proper credentials cannot be supplied, the user profile
will not be imported.
■
To delete an identity, highlight the identity you want to
delete and click [Delete Identity], then click [Apply].
When you delete an identity, all of its
associated remembered sites and
password protected dialogs are lost.
To set the default identity, highlight the identity you
want as default and click [Set as Default]; click [Apply]
to ensure the settings are saved. If you log in to
OmniPass with a fingerprint device, you will automatically be logged in to the default identity for that
OmniPass user. You can choose the identity with which
you are logging in if you login using "master password".
■
You should periodically export your user
profile and store it in a safe place. If
anything happens to your system, you
can import your OmniPass profile to a
new system and have all your remembered settings and fingerprints instantly.
You don't forget the Windows login
credentials when exporting. When you
examine the importation, you are
prompted for authentication. The
credentials that will allow a user profile
to be imported are the Windows login
credentials of the exported user. They
are the credentials that had to be
submitted when the user profile was
exported. You will need User Name,
Password, and Domain.
117
T Series.book Page 118 Friday, May 5, 2006 9:34 AM
LifeBook T4200 Series Tablet PC – Appendix B
Exporting an OmniPass User Profile
To export a user, open the OmniPass Control Center,
and click Import/Export User under Manage Users.
Click Exports an OmniPass user profile. OmniPass will
prompt you to authenticate. Upon successfully authentication, you must name the OmniPass user profile and
decide where to save it. An .opi file is generated, and you
should store a copy of it in a safe place.
This .opi file contains all your user specific OmniPass
data, and it is both encrypted and password protected.
This user profile does NOT contain any of your
encrypted data files.
Importing an OmniPass User Profile
You cannot import a user into OmniPass if
there already is a user with the same name
enrolled in OmniPass.
To import an OmniPass user open the OmniPass
Control Center, and click Import/Export User under
Manage Users. Click Imports a new user into OmniPass
and then select OmniPass Import/Export File (*.opi)
and click Next. OmniPass will then prompt you to
browse for the file you had previously exported (.opi
file). When you select the .opi file for importation,
OmniPass will prompt you for authentication. The
credentials that will allow a user profile to be imported
are the Windows login credentials of the exported user.
They are the credentials that had to be submitted when
the user profile was exported. You will need User Name,
Password, and Domain. If you don’t remember the
value for Domain, in a PC or SOHO environment
Domain should be your computer name.
OmniPass will notify you if the user was successfully
imported.
Things to Know Regarding Import/Export
Assume you export a local Windows User profile from
OmniPass. You want to import that profile to another
machine that has OmniPass. Before you can import
the profile, a Windows user with the same login credentials must be created on the machine importing
the profile.
■
If you export an OmniPass-only user, you can import
that user to any computer running OmniPass, provided that a user with that name is not already
enrolled in OmniPass.
■
If you attempt to import a user profile who has the
same name as a user already enrolled in OmniPass, the
OmniPass import function will fail.
OMNIPASS CONTROL CENTER
This section will serve to explain functions within the
OmniPass Control Center that weren’t explained earlier.
You can access the OmniPass Control Center any of
three ways:
■
Double-click the golden OmniPass key shaped icon in
the Windows taskbar (typically in the lower-right corner of the desktop)
■
Click the Start button; select the Programs group;
select the Softex program group; and click the
OmniPass Control Center selection.
■
Open the Windows Control Panel (accessible via Start
button --> Settings --> Control Panel) and doubleclick the Softex OmniPass icon.
User Management
The User Management tab has two major interfaces:
Add/Remove User and Import/Export User. Import/
Export User functionality is documented in “Exporting
and Importing Users” on page 117. Add/Remove User
functionality is straightforward.
If you click Adds a new user to OmniPass you will start
the OmniPass Enrollment Wizard. The Enrollment
Wizard is documented in “User Enrollment” on
page 114.
If you click Removes a user from OmniPass, OmniPass
will prompt you to authenticate. Authenticate with the
credentials (or enrolled fingerprint) of the user you wish
to remove. OmniPass will prompt you to confirm user
removal. Click OK to complete user removal.
■
Example: I have a Windows user with the username
“Tom” and the password “Sunshine” on my system. I
have enrolled Tom into OmniPass and remembered
passwords. I want to take all my passwords to new system. I export Tom’s OmniPass user profile. I go to my
new system and using the Control Panel I create a user
with the username "Tom" and the password "Sunshine". I can now successfully import the OmniPass
user data to the new system.
118
Removing a user will automatically destroy
all OmniPass data associated with that
user. All identities and credentials
associated with the user will be lost.
If you are sure about removing the user,
we recommend you export the user
profile.
User Settings
The User Settings tab has four interfaces: Audio
Settings, Taskbar Tips, and Enrollment. User settings
allow users to customize OmniPass to suit their individual preferences. Under User Settings (Audio Settings
and Taskbar Tips) you can set how OmniPass notifies
the user of OmniPass events (e.g., successful login,
T Series.book Page 119 Friday, May 5, 2006 9:34 AM
Using the Fingerprint Sensor
access denied, etc.). The details of each setting under the
Audio Settings and Taskbar Tips interfaces are selfexplanatory.
The Enrollment interface allows you to enroll fingerprints. For the procedure to enroll and authentication
device refer to Chapter 2.3. To enroll additional fingerprints, click Enroll Authentication Device, and authenticate with OmniPass. Select the fingerprint recognition
device in the Select Authentication Device screen (it
should already be marked by a green check if you have a
finger enrolled) and click Next.
System Settings
The OmniPass Startup Options interface can be found
in the System Settings tab. With these options you can
specify how your OmniPass Logon is tied to your
Windows Logon.
The first option, Automatically log on to OmniPass as
the current user, will do just as it says; during Windows
login, you will be logged on to OmniPass using your
Windows login credentials. If the user logging into
Windows was never enrolled into OmniPass, upon login
no one will be logged on to OmniPass. This setting is
appropriate for an office setting or any setting where
users must enter a username and password to log into a
computer. This is the default setting.
With the second option, Manually log on to OmniPass
at startup, OmniPass will prompt you to login once you
have logged on to Windows.
With the third option, Do not log on to OmniPass at
startup, OmniPass will not prompt for a user to be
logged on.
You can manually log on to OmniPass by right-clicking
the OmniPass taskbar icon and clicking Log in User
from the right-click menu.
TROUBLESHOOTING
Cannot add a User with a Blank Password to OmniPass
If you experience difficulties adding a user with a
blank password to OmniPass, you may need to
adjust your local security settings. First attempt the
procedure explained in the Cannot add Windows user
to OmniPass section. If the difficulties persist, then
try the following procedure.
Click Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools,
and Local Security Settings. Expand Local Policies,
expand Security Options, and double-click
Accounts: Limit local account use of blank passwords to console login only. This setting should be
set to Disabled.
Dialog appears after OmniPass authentication during
Windows Logon
After installing OmniPass on your system, you can
choose to logon to Windows using OmniPass. You
authenticate with OmniPass (via master password,
or an enrolled security device) and OmniPass logs
you into Windows. You may, during this OmniPass
authentication, see a Login Error dialog box.
This dialog box occurs when OmniPass was unable to
log you into Windows with the credentials supplied
(username and password). This could happen for any
of the following reasons:
■
■
Your Windows password has changed
Your Windows account has been disabled
If you are having difficulties due to the first reason,
you will need to update OmniPass with your changed
Windows account password. Click Update Password
and you will be prompted with a dialog to reconfirm
your password.
Enter the new password to your Windows user
account and click OK. If the error persists, then it is
unlikely the problem is due to your Windows user
account password changing.
You cannot use OmniPass to create Windows users. You
must first create the Windows user, and you will need
administrative privileges to do that. Once the Windows
user is created, you can add that user to OmniPass using
the same username and password
Cannot add Windows users to OmniPass
If you experience difficulties adding a Windows user
to OmniPass, you may need to adjust your local security settings. You can do this by going to Start,
Control Panel, Administrative Tools, and Local
Security Settings. Expand Local Policies, expand
Security Options, and double-click Network Access:
Sharing and Security Model for Local Accounts. The
correct setting should be Classic - Local Users Authenticate as Themselves.
