Getting Started
What Is QUALCOMM Globalstar Data Service?
QUALCOMM Globalstar data service allows your QUALCOMM Globalstar
GSP-1600 Tri-Mode phone to serve as a wireless modem, sending data from
or receiving data to a computer such as a laptop or Palm handheld.
QUALCOMM Globalstar data service handles both packet and
asynchronous data.
What Does Packet Data Let Me Do?
QUALCOMM Globalstar data service lets you access the Internet or other
TCP/IP packet-switched networks.
Depending on your preferences and service availability, your packet data
connection can use either the Globalstar Satellite Communications System,
or a terrestrial digital cellular network.
Once you have connected, you can use familiar software applications such
as Eudora, Netscape Navigator, or Microsoft Internet Explorer for anything
you would normally do through your network provider or Internet Service
Provider (ISP). For example, you could
■
■
■
■
■
Browse the Internet
Access e-mail
Transmit information
Use telnet (for example to connect with host applications at work)
Transfer files using FTP (File Transfer Protocol)
And you can do all of these wherever Globalstar Data Service is available,
at over-the-air data rates of up to 9600 bits per second (bps) for Globalstar
service or up to 14400 bps for cellular service, with no additional modem or
dedicated telephone circuits required.
What Does Asynchronous Data Let Me Do?
QUALCOMM Globalstar data service lets you connect asynchronously to
another modem, using the Globalstar Satellite Communications System
only, at over-the-air data rates of up to 9600 bits per second (bps). For
example, you could dial into an electronic Bulletin Board System (BBS)
using HyperTerminal. Or you could dial into a corporate intranet behind a
firewall (in this case, you would be receiving packet data over your
asynchronous connection).
Tip
QUALCOMM Globalstar packet data service data has a lower
overhead and faster throughput than asynchronous data. If you
do not specifically need asynchronous data (such as for a BBS
connection), use packet data instead.
1
How Does It Work?
Here’s a quick overview of how Globalstar data service works.
Cable
■
Connect your QUALCOMM Globalstar Tri-Mode Phone to the
computer or Palm handheld, using a QUALCOMM serial data cable
and any optional accessories.
Configure
■
Configure your computer or Palm handheld organizer to use Globalstar
data service (you need to do this only once for packet data, and once for
asynchronous data).
Connect
■
■
Click a data connection icon or menu on your computer.
The QUALCOMM Globalstar phone establishes a data connection to
the Globalstar Satellite Communications System or, for packet data
only, to a digital cellular network, using Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP).
Cruise a packet-switched network (packet data)
■
■
■
Open the application you want to use, for example an Internet browser
where you type in a Web address.
Your computer or Palm handheld sends data to the QUALCOMM
Globalstar phone, which transmits them either to a satellite and
Gateway in the Globalstar Satellite Communications System, or to a
digital cellular network.
For a Globalstar packet data call, packets are routed to and from your
network service provider through the Globalstar Satellite System, and
a router in the Globalstar Gateway connects to the Internet, as shown
in the following illustration.

Using Your Tri-Mode Phone for Data
For data connections (packet or asynchronous), your QUALCOMM
Globalstar GSP-1600 Tri-Mode Phone works much as it would for a voice
call.
Note
For complete details about how to use your QUALCOMM
Globalstar Tri-Mode Phone, see the QUALCOMM Globalstar
GSP-1600 Tri-Mode Phone User Guide (document number
80-98153-2).
General Tips
Here are some general tips for using your Tri-Mode Phone for data:
■
■
Make sure the Tri-Mode Phone battery is charged and properly
installed.
Never hold the Tri-Mode Phone by the Globalstar Satellite Antenna.
Tips for Globalstar Satellite Service
Here are some tips for using your Tri-Mode Phone for Globalstar satellite
service:
■
■
■
■
■
Position the Tri-Mode Phone outdoors where its Globalstar Satellite
Antenna has an unimpeded view of the sky (or mount it in a vehicle
using a QUALCOMM Globalstar Hands-Free Car Kit).
Make sure that tall obstacles, such as buildings and trees, do not block
sky (satellite) access.
Extend the Globalstar Satellite Antenna to point straight up to the sky.
Lay the Tri-Mode Phone on its side on a convenient surface such as a
table for hands-free operation.
Remember, for Globalstar satellite service the Tri-Mode Phone will not
work inside a building, nor will it work in a vehicle unless you are using
a car kit.
Setting Mode Preferences for Data
Your Tri-Mode Phone can operate in three different modes:
■
■
■
Globalstar satellite mode — supports packet and asynchronous data
Digital cellular mode — supports packet data only
Analog cellular mode — does not support data
To make a Globalstar satellite or digital cellular data connection, an
appropriate mode preference must be set on your Tri-Mode Phone. The
mode preference tells the phone what type of service it can look for
(Globalstar satellite, digital, or analog), in order of priority.
7
Tip
The calling mode preference has probably been preset on your
phone. You can change the Auto Mode preferences or manually
override them for a particular call.
For example, your phone could be set to look for Globalstar satellite service
only. In that case, if you try to make a digital cellular packet data
connection, your computer will report “No dial tone,” and your Tri-Mode
Phone screen will say “Check mode preferences” or “Mode mismatch.”
Auto Mode Selection
Auto Mode sets mode preferences (Globalstar satellite, digital, or analog)
that the Tri-Mode Phone uses automatically to look for service, in order of
priority.
For more information, see “Auto Mode” in your QUALCOMM Globalstar
GSP-1600 Tri-Mode Phone User Guide.
To set your Auto Mode selection
1.
2.
Under menu, select System, then AutoMode.
Select Data to select modes for data connections.
or
Select Voice to select modes for voice calls.
Make sure “Analog only” is not selected under menu > System >
AutoMode > Voice > Cell Pref. Data service is not available for analog
cellular connections.
For asynchronous connections, make sure “Cell Only” is not selected
under menu > System > AutoMode > Data. Asychronous data service is not
available for cellular connections.
Note
For data service, the phone mode set under Data must be
compatible with the mode set under Voice. For example, if your
Data preference is set to “GStar Only,” but your Voice preference
is set to “Cell Only,” you will not be able to make a data
connection.
Manual Mode Selection
Manual Mode manually selects the mode that the Tri-Mode Phone uses to
look for service (Globalstar satellite, digital, analog, or Auto Mode). A
manual mode selection remains in effect until you turn the phone off. When
you turn on the phone again, it uses the Auto Mode setting.
For more information, see “Manual Mode” in your QUALCOMM Globalstar
GSP-1600 Tri-Mode Phone User Guide.

Windows Computers
This chapter tells how to configure a computer running Windows 95, 98,
NT, or 2000 to use Globalstar data service. To do this, you physically
connect the computer to your QUALCOMM Globalstar Tri-Mode Phone,
then, in most cases, configure a “modem” driver and a new Dial-Up
Networking connection.
Your QUALCOMM Globalstar Packet Data Kit CD contains a modem
installation wizard, which can help you quickly configure both the driver
and Dial-Up Networking.
Note
Physically connecting hardware components is similar for all
Windows versions. However, modem/networking configuration
differs significantly for Windows 2000. The wizard on your CD
handles all versions; see “Quick Start Installation” on page 14.

Setting Up Dial-Up Networking (95, 98, NT)
The procedures in this section configure Dial-Up Networking for:
Packet data connections (for example, browse the Internet)
Asynchronous connections that access packet data (for example, dial
into a modem behind a firewall, then access a corporate intranet).
To make strictly asynchronous connections using HyperTerminal, you do
not need to set up Dial-Up Networking; see “Making a Data Connection” on
page 53 instead.

Making a New Connection
The following procedures create a new Dial-Up Networking Connection,
represented by an icon on your Windows desktop.
You must create separate icons for packet data and asynchronous data, if
you want to use both types of connections for PPP data. “At a Glance” tables
in the procedures show the key settings that differ for packet and
asynchronous connections (for example, phone numbers).
Tip
Create a new connection for packet data first. Then, if you also
want an asynchronous connection for PPP data, copy your packet
data connection icon (right-click, copy), paste it (right-click,
paste), and rename it. Change only the properties shown in the
“At a Glance” tables.

Configuring Your Macintosh
To configure a Macintosh, you create a networking configuration, a stored
collection of settings that enables your computer and Tri-Mode Phone
(“modem”) to make a particular type of data connection. A networking
configuration includes three types of settings (or sub-configurations):
Remote Access, modem, and TCP/IP.
Do I need to set up a networking configuration?
For this type of Globalstar data
service:
Networking configuration needed?
Packet data (PPP) connections
Yes
Example: browsing the Internet or
sending e-mail
A networking configuration is required to
make a packet data connection.
Asynchronous connections that
access packet (PPP) data
Yes
Example: dialing into a modem behind a
firewall, then accessing a corporate
intranet
Asynchronous connections with no
PPP data
Example: dialing into a BBS
A separate networking configuration is
required to make an asynchronous
connection—if you will use it to access
PPP data.
No
No networking configuration required —
just use a terminal emulator application
and connect using a serial port. For
details, go to: page 75.
In addition to configurations for packet and/or asynchronous-with-PPP
data, you could create optional networking configurations to help you
connect efficiently, depending on your circumstances. For example, you
could make separate networking configurations for
■
■
■
Multiple SPs or ISPs that you use (with different name servers, phone
numbers, or preferences)
Making calls in Globalstar-only or cellular-only mode
Any combination of Globalstar data types, SPs/ISPs, or modes
For example, to use packet data service with two different SPs and
asynchronous/PPP data with a third SP, you could set up three separate
networking configurations.
You decide whether setting up optional networking configurations is
convenient.
62
Macintosh Computers
How Do I Set Up a Networking Configuration?
Before setting up a networking configuration, copy modem script files to
your Macintosh from the QUALCOMM Globalstar Packet Data Kit (you
need to do this only once). See “Copying Modem Script Files to Your
Macintosh”.
Then, for each networking configuration you wish to set up, follow the
sequence of steps under “Creating a Networking Configuration”.
Copying Modem Script Files to Your Macintosh
1.
2.
Locate the CD included in the QUALCOMM Globalstar Packet Data
Kit, then insert it into the CD-ROM drive of your Macintosh.
Using the Finder, locate the “drag into Modem Scripts” folder on the
CD, and copy all the files in it to: System Folder > Extensions > Modem
Scripts.
These files contain scripts with modem settings for Globalstar data
service. One is a basic script that uses the mode preferences set on your
Tri-Mode Phone. Others, included for your convenience, can force your
Tri-Mode Phone to make data connections using Globalstar or cellular
modes only.
Creating a Networking Configuration
Creating a networking configuration consists of the following sequence:
■
■
■
Create and set up a new Remote Access configuration, including setting
up the protocol
Create and set up a new Modem configuration
Create and set up a new TCP/IP configuration
To use Globalstar packet data service with a single SP, follow this sequence
once. To set up additional networking configurations, repeat the sequence,
changing settings as appropriate.
Create separate networking configurations for packet data and
asynchronous data, if you want to use both types of connections for PPP
data.
Tip
If you create multiple networking configurations, you can use the Location
Manager that came with your MacOS to store and manage them.

Palm Handhelds
This chapter tells how to configure a Palm handheld organizer running the
Palm OS to use Globalstar data service. To do this, you physically connect
the Palm handheld to your QUALCOMM Globalstar Tri-Mode Phone, then,
in most cases, set up a wireless “modem” and a network connection.
Configuration procedures are similar for all models of Palm handhelds (III,
V, VII). However, to connect different models you may need different cables
or optional adapters.
Note
The examples in this chapter use Palm OS 3.1.1. You may need
a newer Palm OS, depending on which Palm you use, and newer
Palm OS versions may differ from the examples here.

UNIX Computers
This chapter tells how to configure a UNIX computer to use Globalstar data
service. To do this, you physically connect the UNIX computer to your
QUALCOMM Globalstar Tri-Mode Phone, then, in most cases, configure a
“modem” and a packet data or an asynchronous connection.
Globalstar data service has been tested with the following:
■
■
Solaris UNIX
Red Hat Linux
Note
The examples in this chapter use Solaris version 2.6 and Red Hat
Linux 6.1. Setup for other UNIX OS versions and PPP
applications may vary.
Connecting UNIX Components
To use Globalstar data service with UNIX, you connect the following
hardware components:
■

Configuring Your Solaris UNIX Computer
You can interact with a Solaris UNIX system in many ways, from the
command line to various graphical interfaces. No matter which interface
you use, you must provide the same basic information to configure
Globalstar data service.
Configuration differs depending on the type of Globalstar data service you
want to use: packet data, asynchronous connection with PPP data, or
asynchronous data only, as shown in the following table.
What you need to configure for Solaris UNIX
Type of Globalstar data service:
PPP Client required?
Packet data connections
Yes
Example: browsing the Internet or
sending email
PPP Client lets your QUALCOMM
Globalstar Tri-Mode Phone act as a
wireless modem.
Go to: page 91
Asynchronous connections that
access packet
(PPP) data
Yes
Example: dialing into a modem behind a
firewall, then accessing a corporate
intranet
Asynchronous data connections
only
Example: dialing into a BBS
You must set up a second PPP Client
with a different AT command.
Go to: page 91
No
Not if you use tip or a similar program
and just connect using a serial port
(e.g., COM1). Go to: page 96
The configuration procedures in this section use Solstice PPP 3.0.1 as an
example. A license and software for Solstice PPP is included with your
purchase of the Solaris media. To install Solstice PPP, see the instructions
in your Solaris documentation.
Setting Up the PPP Client
You must create separate remote server icons for packet data and
asynchronous data, if you want to use both types of connections for PPP
data. “At a Glance” tables in the procedures show the key settings that
differ for packet and asynchronous connections (for example, phone
numbers).
UNIX Computers
91
Tip
Create a new connection for packet data first. Then, if you also
want an asynchronous connection for PPP data, duplicate your
packet data remote server icon and rename it. Change only the
properties shown in the “At a Glance” tables.

This creates an empty script file. If the file already exists, open it with
a text editor and make sure that it contains no lines of text.
Check the /etc/opt/SUMWconn/ppp/link.conf file and make
sure the speed is set to 38400.
The speed for the PPP client must match the baud rate on your
Tri-Mode Phone (38400 bps is the phone’s default). If the speeds are not
the same, your computer cannot communicate with the Tri-Mode
Phone.
UNIX Computers
93
Tip
You can check or change the baud rate on your Tri-Mode Phone
by selecting menu, then selecting Features > Data > Baud Rate. If
the baud rate on your Tri-Mode Phone is not set to 38400 bps, be
sure to change the line speed for the PPP client so that the two
speeds match.

Make sure the Tri-Mode Phone is properly connected to your Linux
computer (as described in “Connecting UNIX Components” on page 89).
Power up your Tri-Mode Phone.
Rotate or fully extend the appropriate antenna for the type of
connection you wish to make (Globalstar satellite or cellular, as shown
on page 90) and make sure you have a Globalstar or cellular signal.
On the command line of your computer, type usernetctl ppp0 up
and press Enter.
The Tri-Mode Phone makes the data call. While the call is connecting,
the Tri-Mode Phone screen looks like this:
Connecting..

#777
| menu |
Note
When you make a cellular call, the Globalstar icon
is
replaced with the digital icon D . When you make an
asynchronous call, the screen reads “Async Data” and shows the
telephone number.
You are connected to the network when the Tri-Mode Phone screen
says “PPP @ 9.6.” The “PPP @ 9.6” indicates that the over-the-air data
rate is 9600 bps. (The “T R” status stands for Transmit and Receive.)
For an asynchronous connection, the screen says “Async @ 9.6.” When
the connection is made, the status is logged to the system log.
Note
For cellular calls the Tri-Mode Phone screen says “PPP @ 14.4,”
indicating an over-the-air rate of 14400 bps.

accessories:
QUALCOMM serial data cable
Compact Disc (CD-ROM) that includes this User Guide
This chapter describes optional accessories that you may need to complete
your hardware setup, depending on which computer you use. These
accessories are readily available from commercial retail outlets that carry
computer supplies, for example electronics, computer, or office supply
stores such as (but not limited to) Radio Shack, CompUSA, Staples, or
Office Depot.
■
■
Indoor/Outdoor Extension Cable
An extension cable lets you place the Tri-Mode Phone outdoors and connect
it to a computer inside a building, to avoid sun glare and make the computer
screen easier to read. The cable should have a 9-pin male connector on one
end and a 9-pin female on the other, with a maximum length of 30 meters.
Palm Cable and Null Modem Adapter
If you are using a Palm handheld without a built-in 9-pin D serial port, you
need a cable and adapter to interface with the QUALCOMM data cable for
the Tri-Mode Phone (TIA/EIA-574 DTE serial interface).
A Palm cable connects a Palm handheld to a null modem adapter, which
attaches to the QUALCOMM data cable. Depending on the Palm model,
this may be a HotSync cable or other type of Palm cable. For connection
details, see “Connecting Palm Components” on page 77.
The null modem adapter (for a TIA/EIA-574 DTE serial interface) should
have 9-pin male connectors on each end. Alternatively, you could use a 9pin male-to-female null modem adapter and a gender-changer adapter to
connect to the Palm. (Most commercially available null modem adapters are
male-to-female.)
Macintosh Adapters and Modem Cable
If you are using an Apple Macintosh, you need accessories to interface with
the QUALCOMM data cable for the Tri-Mode Phone (TIA/EIA-574 DTE
serial interface).
If your Macintosh has USB (Universal Serial Bus) ports, you need a USB
adapter to connect your Macintosh to the QUALCOMM data cable.
Associated software for the USB adapter must be installed on your
Macintosh.
If your Macintosh has mini-DIN 8 (non-USB) ports, you need a Macintosh
modem cable and an adapter.
109
The modem cable should have a round mini-DIN 8 connector on one end, to
connect to your Macintosh. On the other, it should have a 25-pin female
connector. An adapter connects the 25-pin end of the Macintosh modem
cable to the 9-pin end of the QUALCOMM data cable. For connection
details, see “Connecting Macintosh Components” on page 57.
Both the Macintosh modem cable and the adapter must have specific pin
configurations to work with Globalstar data. For pinout details, see Table 1.

If you are having a problem with Globalstar data service, try the following
troubleshooting tips. If that does not solve the problem, contact your service
provider’s customer care center.
Problem
Solution
General
Your Tri-Mode Phone
cannot get a signal.
General:
■
Make sure the Tri-Mode Phone’s
battery is charged and properly
installed.
Cellular:
■
Fully extend the cellular antenna.
■
Make sure you are clear of any objects
that could block the signal.
Globalstar:
■
Make sure the Tri-Mode Phone is
outdoors.
■
Extend the Globalstar Satellite
Antenna at least 90o, or, if that does
not work, rotate it further until you
feel it click into place.
■
Position the Tri-Mode Phone so the
Globalstar Satellite Antenna points
straight up to the sky.
■
Make sure the Globalstar Satellite
Antenna has a clear view of the sky,
not blocked by tall obstacles such as
buildings and trees.
Your Tri-Mode Phone has a
signal but you cannot
connect to the data
network.
■
■
■
Make sure the Tri-Mode Phone and
your computer are connected correctly
and make sure all connectors are tight
(see the appropriate chapter for your
type of computer).
Check your modem and network
settings (see the appropriate chapter
for your type of computer).
For packet data, make sure the
telephone number being dialed is #777.
111
Problem
Solution
Nothing happens on the
Tri-Mode Phone when you
try to connect, a message
says “No dial tone,” or a
message says “hardware
failure.”
■
■
When you try to connect,
your computer says “No
dial tone” and the screen on
your Tri-Mode Phone says
“Check mode preferences”
or “Mode mismatch.”
■
■
■
You have a PPP connection
but your Internet
applications cannot
connect to your ISP.
112
■
Make sure the baud rate in your
“Globalstar data modem” settings
matches the baud rate on your TriMode Phone (default: 38400). Check
the baud rate on your Tri-Mode Phone
by selecting menu > Features > Data >
Baud Rate, then change it if necessary.
Make sure the battery for the laptop or
Palm handheld is charged, or that the
laptop or Palm is properly plugged into
a power supply. It is possible to have a
low battery charge that will run the
laptop but will not drive the serial port.
Make sure the data mode preferences
(Globalstar satellite, digital cellular)
on your Tri-Mode Phone are
compatible with those set for voice
service. Check the preferences on your
phone by selecting menu > System >
AutoMode > Data or Voice. See “Setting
Mode Preferences for Data” on page 7
for more information.
Make sure “Analog only” is not
selected under menu > System >

Problem
Solution
Asynchronous Data
When you try to connect,
your Tri-Mode Phone says
“Busy.”
■
The target modem (or modem pools
used for routing) may be busy. Try
connecting again later.
When you try to connect,
your Tri-Mode Phone says
“No carrier.”
■
You may have dialed a wrong number,
reaching a voice phone instead of a
modem. Check the phone number.
Make sure the Globalstar antenna is
extended at least 90o.
■
When you try to connect,
your Tri-Mode Phone says
“No answer.”
■
The target modem is not answering, or
a wrong number is not answering.
Check the phone number and try
connecting again later.
When you try to connect,
your Tri-Mode Phone says
says “No dial tone.”
■
Make sure “Cell Only” is not selected
under menu > System > AutoMode > Data
or menu > System > AutoMode > Voice.
Asychronous data service is not
available for cellular connections. See
“Setting Mode Preferences for Data” on
page 7 for more information.
Your asynchronous call
takes a long time to
connect.
■
This may be normal. Asynchronous
connections have higher overhead and
thus are slower than packet data calls.

Troubleshooting
Supported AT Commands
For data service, your QUALCOMM Globalstar phone works as a wireless
modem. In other words, it functions as Data Communications Equipment
(DCE) that communicates with your computer, or Data Terminal
Equipment (DTE).
In the process, your computer sends AT (modem attention) commands to
the phone. Table 2 shows the AT (Hayes modem compatible) commands
that the phone supports for data. For many commands, the entries for
“Value Range,” “No Value Range,” “No Value Definition,” or “Power ON
Definition” have no valid value. These entries have different symbols in
place of values:
A dash “-” character means that, for this command, the value is either
not present or not allowed.
■
A caret “^” character means that no current value state (or Power-ON
state) is kept internally.
■
An asterisk “*” character means you should consult a footnote for this
entry.
The command syntax uses the following conventions:
■
■
■
■
■
■
■
Words enclosed in <angle brackets> identify parameters that can be
specified as part of the command.
Syntactical elements enclosed in [square brackets] are optional and
may be omitted from the command line.
Syntactical elements enclosed in {brackets} are required and must be
specified as part of the command.
The use of | between syntactical elements indicates only one of the
elements may be specified as part of the command. For example, the
command syntax for S3{=<value>|?} must be either S3=<value> or
S3?.
The “+” and “$” characters are used to identify extended AT commands.
“+” and “$” denote standard and manufacturer-specific extended
commands respectively.
A semicolon (“;”) is used to concatenate additional commands (basic or
extended) after an extended command.

The phone will always Power-On in Auto mode, using the service based on the user’s preferences.
6This
is an advanced AT command. Do not use it if you do not understand what it does.
7If <tcpmod> is equal to one, the values in the rest of the variables will be put into effect. If <tcpmod>
is set to zero, the rest of the values entered into the AT command will be ignored, and the default
values will be restored to the internal variables.
