Pacemakers, Hearing Aids and Other Electrically Powered Devices

Most manufacturers of medical devices adhere to the IEC 601-1-2 standard. This standard requires devices to operate properly in an EM Field with a strength of 3V/m over a frequency range of 26 to 1000MHz.

The maximum allowable field strength emitted by the Dolphin is 0.3V/m according to Subpart B of Part 1 of the FCC rules.

Therefore, the Dolphin RF has no effect on medical devices that meet the IEC specification.

Microwaves

The radio in the Dolphin RF terminal operates on the same frequency band as a microwave oven. Therefore, if you use a microwave within range of the Dolphin RF terminal you may notice performance degradation in your wireless network. However, both your microwave and your wireless network will continue to function.

The Dolphin Batch terminal does not contain a radio, and therefore, is not affected by microwave ovens.

Care and Cleaning of Dolphin 9500 Series Terminals

When needed, clean the image engine window and the LCD display with a clean, non-abrasive, lint-free cloth. The terminal can be cleaned with a damp cloth.

Batteries

Dolphin 9500 Series features intelligent battery technology. There are two types of battery power: the main battery pack installed in the back panel and the backup battery located inside the terminal. They are designed to work together to prevent data loss when the terminal is in use over long periods. Both batteries must be completely charged before using a Dolphin terminal for the first time.

Main Battery Pack

!

Use only the Li-ion battery packs provided by Hand Held Products. The use of any battery pack not sold/manufactured

by Hand Held Products in Dolphin 9500 Series terminals will void your warranty and may result in damage to the Dolphin

terminal or battery.

The 7.4V, 14.8 watt hour Li-Ion battery pack is the primary power source for the Dolphin. The Li-Ion battery is designed to operate in a temperature range of -10 to 50

°

C (14 to 122

°

F). For the location of the Li-Ion battery on the terminal, see Battery/Battery

Well on page 3-5.

Charging Options

When the Li-ion battery is installed in the terminal, use one of the following peripherals:

Dolphin 9500 Series HomeBase (see page 12-1)

Dolphin 9500 Series Mobile Base (see page 13-1)

Dolphin 9500 Series ChargeBase (see page 14-1) or the Dolphin 9500 Series Net Base

• Dolphin Mobile Charger - connect the charger to the terminal and vehicle power port

Note: Make sure the mechanical connector on the terminal is properly connected to the peripheral and that the peripheral is connected to the appropriate power supply.

When the Li-ion battery is not installed in the terminal:

• Place the battery pack in the Dolphin QuadCharger - see Charging Batteries in the QuadCharger on page 15-3.

• Place the battery pack in the

Auxiliary Battery Well

of the Dolphin HomeBase (see page 12-5)

Charging Time

The Li-ion battery pack requires four hours to charge completely.

Internal Backup Battery

Located inside the terminal, the backup battery is a 3.6 Volt nickel metal hydride (NiMH) battery.

Purpose

The internal backup battery prevents the terminal from being reset if you need to remove and replace the main battery pack. It retains RAM data and allows the real-time clock to remain operational for up to 30 minutes when the main battery pack is removed. If the terminal is left without the main battery pack for more than 30 minutes, the internal backup battery needs to be recharged to function according to its specifications.

Note: Data and programs stored in Flash memory are not lost even if the internal backup battery fails. However, you must reset

the real-time clock; see Set the Time and Date

on page 2-10.

Charging

The internal backup battery is powered by the main battery pack. Therefore, charging the internal backup battery requires that the main battery pack be installed in the terminal and the terminal be connected to a charging device.

The internal backup battery must be fully charged before using the terminal for the first time. The initial charge cycle takes approximately eight hours. After that, if the internal backup battery becomes fully discharged of power, it requires a minimum of

10 hours of charging time to function normally.

Guidelines for Use

Follow these guidelines to maximize the life of the Dolphin’s internal backup battery:

3 - 10

Dolphin® 9500 Series Mobile Computer User’s Guide

• Keep a charged Li-Ion battery pack in the Dolphin terminal. The internal battery prematurely discharges if there is not at least a partially charged battery in the terminal.

• Keep the Dolphin terminal connected to power when the terminal is not in use.

Managing Battery Power

Data and files saved on Dolphin 9500 Series terminals may be stored in RAM; therefore, to help prevent data loss, maintain a continuous power supply to the terminal. When the main battery pack becomes low, the Low Battery Charge icon appears in the notification tray at the top of the screen. The Critical icon appears when the battery is critically low. There is also a Low Battery

icon that appears when the backup battery is low. For details about these icons, see Status Icons on page 4-22.

Letting the backup battery become fully discharged causes the terminal to lose all data in RAM. Therefore, you should keep a charged battery pack in the Dolphin at all times. The internal battery discharges prematurely if there is not at least a partially charged battery in the terminal. When you remove a battery pack, insert another charged battery pack in the Dolphin.

The battery status indicator displays in the notification tray when the battery is low or critically low. If there is no indicator, the battery is adequately charged. If the main battery is low and the terminal is in suspend mode, pressing the SCAN or Power button does not wake the Dolphin terminal; you must replace the discharged battery with a fully charged battery.

Default Critical and Low Battery Points

Dolphin 9500 Series terminals are programmed to display warnings when the battery reaches critical and low battery points.

There are two DWORD value registry entries [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power] that allow these warning points to be customized:

“CriticalBatt”=a (10%)

This sets the Critical Battery point to 10 percent (a hex = 10 decimal). The critical battery setting is the point at which the customer is warned that the battery charge is very low. This warning is posted every 3 minutes until the situation is corrected.

“LowBatt”=19 (25%)

This sets the Low battery point to 25 percent (19 hex = 25 decimal). The low battery setting is the point at which the user is notified that the battery is low. The user is notified only once for a low battery.

Setting Critical and Low Battery Points

Developers can reset these parameters in the registry from 0 (no warning) to 99 (would nearly always warn). Warnings do not appear when the terminal is on external power.

You can also review and set these battery points in the RegEdit utility. Tap Start > Utils > RegEdit. Drill-down to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > System > CurrentControlSet > Control > Power. The Battery Points appear in a list in the lower half of the window; tap on the Value Name to change the Value Data.

Dolphin® 9500 Series Mobile Computer User’s Guide

3 - 11

Checking Battery Power

Tap Start > Settings > System tab > Power. The Battery tab opens displaying the charge status of both the installed Li-ion battery pack and the NiMH backup battery inside the terminal.

Power system settings contains three tabs: Battery, Wireless, and Advanced. For more information, see Power on page 5-10.

Storing Batteries

To maintain optimal battery performance, follow these storage guidelines:

• Avoid storing batteries outside the specified range of -4 to 104° F (-20 to 40°C) or in extremely high humidity.

• For prolonged storage, do not keep batteries stored in a charger that is connected to a power source.

Guidelines for Battery Use and Disposal

The following are general guidelines for the safe use and disposal of batteries:

• Use only the battery supplied, recommended, or approved by Hand Held Products.

• Replace defective batteries immediately; using a defective battery could damage the Dolphin terminal.

• Never throw a used battery in the trash. It contains heavy metals and should be recycled according to local guidelines.

• Don’t short-circuit a battery or throw it into a fire. It can explode and cause severe personal injury.

• Excessive discharge damages a battery. Recharge the battery when your terminal indicates low battery power.

• Although your battery can be recharged many times, it will eventually be depleted. Replace it after the battery is unable to hold an adequate charge.

• If you are not sure the battery or charger is working properly, please send it to Hand Held Products or an authorized Hand

Held Products service center for inspection.

Decoding

The terminal supports two types of image decoding for use in various bar code reading and imaging applications: full-area imaging and Advanced Linear Decoding (ALD).

Full-Area Imaging

ALD

Full-area imaging provides omni-directional reading of linear and non-linear 1D and 2D bar codes,

OCR, signature capture, and picture taking. When reading all bar code types using full-area imaging,

a positive read can be obtained from many positions; see Dolphin 9500/Dolphin 9550 Scanning

Position Options on page 4-5.

To achieve the best read, the aiming beam should be centered

horizontally across the bar code.

ALD provides fast reading of linear and stacked linear bar codes. To achieve a positive read when reading linear 1D and PDF417 bar codes, the green aiming beam should be centered horizontally across the bar code. When ALD is enabled, the reader does not read matrix or postal codes.

To Decode a Bar Code

1. Point the Dolphin terminal directly at the bar code. The imager faces straight out the top panel.

The aiming beam should be oriented in line with the bar code to achieve optimal decoding. A range of 4-10 inches (10-25 cm) from the bar code is recommended.

2. Project the aiming beam or pattern by pressing and holding the SCAN key.

On the Dolphin 9550 and the Dolphin 9551, you can also press the

Scan Trigger , page 3-6

3. The scan LED lights red.

Decode LED Scan LED

4. Center the aiming beam over the bar code; see Dolphin 9500/Dolphin 9550 Scanning Position Options on page 4-5.

5. When the bar code is successfully decoded, the decode LED lights green and the terminal beeps.

6. The bar code information is entered into the application in use.

Capturing Images

The image-capture process is an intuitive, split-second operation for experienced users. By following the basic guidelines, new users can easily develop their own technique and, with practice, quickly learn to adapt it to different application environments.

Note: The Dolphin 9501 and Dolphin 9551 do not support image capture.

Image Preview

Scan Key

Image Files

When the imaging process is initiated, Dolphin touch screens display a preview of the object. This is a live video image of what the imager is currently viewing. The live video image has a slightly degraded appearance compared to the captured image. This is normal.

The SCAN key captures images on both the Dolphin 9500 and Dolphin 9550 terminals. The SCAN key is the only way to capture an image on the Dolphin 9500; however, on the Dolphin 9550, you can also use the Scan Trigger on the pistol-grip handle.

The terminal is capable of saving images in a number of industry-standard file formats such as *.bmp,

*.jpg and *.png. The default file format for images is a grayscale *.jpg.

The image quality and related file size are determined by the data compression method used by the software application used to take images. The average size of the image file is approximately 4-8K.

However, the size of the image depends on the content of the image - the more complex the content, the larger the file size.

For the highest quality, take grayscale images.

Taking an Image

The following steps are basic guidelines for taking images:

1. Point the Dolphin terminal directly at the object. The imager points straight out the top panel.

2. To preview the image, press and hold the SCAN key.

On the Dolphin 9550, you can also press and hold the Scan Trigger , page 3-6.

3. The touch screen displays a preview of the object, and the decode and scan LEDs light red.

4. Adjust the terminal’s position until the object appears on the screen the way you want it to appear in the image.

5. Hold the terminal still and release the SCAN key or Scan Trigger. The scan and decode LEDs flash red, the screen flashes, and the captured image appears on the screen.

6. Unless otherwise specified by the application in use, the image is saved to the My Device folder (Start > Programs > File

Explorer > My Device).

IT4300SF and IT4300SR with High-Vis Aiming Pattern

If your Dolphin terminal is configured with the IT4300SF or IT4300SR imager, you can enable the aiming pattern for imaging in the Demos.

1. Tap Start > Demos > Imaging Demo > Options menu > Aimer.

2. The aiming pattern is now enabled for imaging.

Uploading Images

Image files can be uploaded to a host PC via Microsoft ActiveSync and a Dolphin communication peripheral or your wireless radio connection.

Radio Options

Dolphin 9500 Series terminals can be configured with one or a combination of the following radios:

• 802.11b

• Bluetooth

• GSM/GPRS (Dolphin 9500 only)

Please note that the Dolphin 9550 supports all radio options and configurations EXCEPT FOR GSM/GPRS.

Available Radio Combinations

Dolphin 9500 Series terminals can be configured with more than one radio.

Co-located Radios

Some combinations are co-located, which means that you can use only one radio at a time. In this case, you can have both radios installed but need to power one up and the other down before operation.

• 802.11b and GSM/GPRS

Co-operational Radios

Some combinations are co-operational, which means that you can power up and operate both radios simultaneously.

• Bluetooth and 802.11b

• Bluetooth and GSM/GPRS

Radio Driver Installation

Radio drivers install during the autoinstall whenever the mobile computer is initialized; when first turned on or after a hard reset.

Only the appropriate drivers for your terminal’s radio configuration install. For example, if your terminal is configured only with an

802.11b radio, only the driver for that radio installs. For more information, see Let Autoinstall Run on page 2-10.

When a single radio installs, its radio driver is powered up automatically after initialization is complete. In general, when more than one radio installs, the terminal powers up the 802.11b radio. However, if a GSM radio is installed, the terminal powers up the GSM radio.

The Radio Manager

The Radio Manager is a control panel applet through which the radio power driver controls the radio state. It enables you to choose which radios on the terminal are powered up. When powered up, the radio is transmitting, when powered down, the radio is not transmitting.

Single Radio Configuration

If your terminal contains a single radio module and its associated driver is installed, operates by itself without any special configuration made to the device.

Multiple Radio Configuration

Configuration of simultaneous radio operation is done during the manufacturing process according to FCC regulations. If multiple radio modules are installed in your terminal, simultaneous operation must be configured on the device before the radio power driver allows it. In other words, verify which radio or radios are powered up or down.

Multiple Radio Operation

GSM and 802.11b are mutually exclusive. While they may both be present, they cannot be allowed to operate simultaneously. If you have modules and drivers for both radios installed on your terminal, you must ensure that one radio is powered down before using the other.

The Bluetooth radio is allowed to operate by itself or simultaneously with either of the GSM or 802.11b radios.

4 - 16

Dolphin® 9500 Series Mobile Computer User’s Guide

Powering Up a Radio

Requirements

To successfully power up a radio, both the hardware module and the software driver must be installed on the terminal. If the module is present, the radio appears in the Radio Manager. However if the driver is not installed, you cannot successfully power up the radio. Attempting to do so produces an error in the Status field that tells you that the driver is not installed.

To Power Up a Radio or Radio Combination

1. Open the Radio Manager by going to Start > Settings > Connections tab > Radio Manager. The Radio Manager appears identifying which radio modules are installed.

2. The highlighted entry is the radio mode that is currently enabled; its Status should be Ready.

3. Select the radio in the Radio Modes list and tap Apply.

The radio drivers are powered down and powered up in the proper sequence. For example, if the radio powered up is Bluetooth

Only and you try to switch to 802.11b Only, after Apply is tapped, the Radio Manager powers down the Bluetooth radio first, then powers up the 802.11b radio.

If an error occurs during this process, the radio mode change is abandoned. The resulting radio state is the status of the radios at the time the error occurred.

Radio Modes

Status field

The Radio Modes section displays the radio hardware modules currently installed on the terminal. For example, if a working Bluetooth module is installed, the box contains the line Bluetooth Only whether or not that radio is currently powered up.

The Status field provides feedback on the state of the radio. When it reads “Ready,” the radio selected in the Radio Modes box is powered up. The Status field displays error messages when a radio cannot be enabled.

To Power Down Radios

Radio drivers are automatically powered down if the radio or radio combination that is currently powered up requires it. To power down all radios, select None and tap Apply.

For more information about 802.11b radios, see Wireless LAN Communications with 802.11b

on page 7-1.

For more information about Bluetooth radios, see Wireless PAN Communications with Bluetooth on page 8-1.

Writing on the Screen

In any program that accepts writing, such as the Notes program, and in the Notes tab in Calendar, Contacts, and Tasks, you can use your stylus to write directly on the screen as you would on paper. To write on the screen, tap the Pen button to switch to writing mode. This action displays lines on the screen to help you write.

Note: Some programs that accept writing may not have the Pen button. See the documentation for that program to find out how to switch to writing mode.

To Select Writing

If you want to edit or format writing, you must select it first.

1. Tap and hold the stylus next to the text you want to select until the insertion point appears.

2. Without lifting, drag the stylus across the text you want to select.

If you accidentally write on the screen, tap Tools, then Undo and try again. You can also select text by tapping the Pen button to deselect it and then dragging the stylus across the screen.

You can cut, copy, and paste written text in the same way you work with typed text: tap and hold the selected words and then tap an editing command on the pop-up menu, or tap the command on the Edit menu.

Drawing on the Screen

Drawing on the screen is similar to writing on the screen. The difference between writing and drawing on the screen is how you select items and how they can be edited. To create a drawing, cross three ruled lines on your first stroke. A drawing box appears.

Subsequent strokes in or touching the drawing box become part of the drawing. Drawings that do not cross three ruled lines will be treated as writing.

Selecting a Drawing

To edit or format a drawing, tap and hold the stylus on the drawing until the selection handle appears. To select multiple drawings, deselect the Pen button and then drag to select the drawings you want.

You can cut, copy, and paste selected drawings by tapping and holding the selected drawing and then tapping an editing command on the pop-up menu, or by tapping the command on the Edit menu. To resize a drawing, make sure the Pen button is not selected, and drag a selection handle.

• Synchronize Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel files between your device and desktop computer. Your files are automatically converted to the correct format.

The most current version of ActiveSync can be downloaded from www.microsoft.com.

Additional Capabilities

With ActiveSync, you can also:

• Back up and restore your device data.

• Copy (rather than synchronize) files between your device and desktop computer.

• Control when synchronization occurs by selecting a synchronization mode. For example, you can synchronize continually while connected to your desktop computer or only when you choose the synchronize command.

• Select which information types are synchronized and control how much data is synchronized. For example, you can choose how many weeks of past appointments you want synchronized.

Requirements

To synchronize, ActiveSync version 3.7 or higher must be installed on both your desktop computer and Dolphin 9500 Series terminal. Dolphin 9500 Series terminals ship with ActiveSync 3.7 already installed. Therefore, you must install ActiveSync 3.7 on your desktop computer from the Microsoft Companion CD that came with your terminal.

To install ActiveSync on your desktop computer, insert the Microsoft Companion CD into the CD-ROM drive of your desktop computer. Click the yellow arrow, then Start Here, and follow the directions on your screen.

!

When communicating via ActiveSync, your terminal must be connected to the host PC with a peripheral device sold/ manufactured by Hand Held Products, such as the Dolphin HomeBase, Dolphin Mobile Base, Dolphin Net Base,

Dolphin Mobile Charger or other Dolphin 9500 Series charging/communication cable. Use of any peripheral not sold/ manufactured by Hand Held Products may damage your terminal and will void the warranty.

For more information about communication peripherals, see Dolphin 9500 Series HomeBase on page 12-1 and

Dolphin 9500

Series Mobile Base on page 13-1.

Setting Up Your Desktop Computer

When installation of ActiveSync is complete on your desktop computer, the ActiveSync Setup Wizard helps you

• connect your terminal to your desktop computer,

• set up a partnership so you can synchronize information, and

• customize your synchronization settings.

Synchronizing from Your Desktop Computer

Because ActiveSync is already installed on the Dolphin 9500 Series terminal, your first synchronization process begins automatically when you finish setting up your desktop computer in the wizard and your terminal is connected to the host PC.

After your first synchronization, look at Calendar, Contacts, and Tasks on the terminal. Notice that the same information from

Microsoft Outlook on your desktop computer is now on the terminal. Simply remove the Dolphin from the communication peripheral and you’re ready to use it.

By default, ActiveSync does not automatically synchronize all types of information. Use ActiveSync Options to specify the types of information you want to synchronize. The synchronization process makes the data (in the information types you select) identical on both your desktop computer and your device.

!

When selecting programs, verify that the program and version of the program are designed for the Windows Mobile and your processor. You can verify your processor by tapping Start > Settings > System tab > About > Version tab. Make a note of the information in the Processor field.

Depending on the application, the software must be stored or installed on the host PC.

1. Download the program to your desktop computer from either the Internet or the CD or disk that contains the program. You may see a single *.exe or setup.exe file, a *.cab file, or *.dll. There may also be several versions of files for different device types and processors.

2. Read any installation instructions, Read Me files, or documentation that comes with the program. Many programs provide special installation instructions.

3. Connect the terminal to the desktop computer via a Hand Held Products communication peripheral.

If the File is an Installer:

An installer program is one that installs on the PC and the terminal simultaneously; one process installs to both devices.

1. On the PC, double-click the *.exe or *.setup.exe file. The installation wizard begins.

2. Follow the directions on the PC screen. The installation process includes transferring the software to the terminal.

If the File is Not an Installer:

Some programs cannot be installed on PCs because they are designed for terminals. In these cases, the appropriate files must be stored on the host PC, transferred via ActiveSync, and installed on the terminal. You will know the program cannot be installed on the PC if an error message appears when you try to install it stating that the program is valid but designed for a different type of computer.

1. If you cannot find any installation instructions for the program in the Read Me file or documentation, open ActiveSync and click Explore.*

2. Navigate to the My Pocket PC folder and copy the program file or files to the Program Files folder on the terminal.

• If you want the program to be part of the Autoinstall that occurs after every hard reset, place the program file in the

Autoinstall folder (My Pocket PC > IPSM > Autoinstall).

3. Depending on the program, you may need to open File Explorer on the terminal, navigate to the folder where the program is located, and tap on the program file to install it.

• If you copied the file to the Autoinstall folder, you can either tap on the program inside the Autoinstall folder or perform

a hard reset and the program will install as part of the regular Autoinstall; see Let Autoinstall Run on page 2-10.

AEGIS Client

®

offers the most comprehensive IEEE 802.1X supplicant for securing wired and wireless networks. The Client is a standards-based implementation of IEEE 802.1X and can be configured to work with almost any network equipment - wired or wireless - that supports the 802.1X authentication standard. The Client is interoperable with 802.1X-capable wireless access points and authentication servers including Microsoft's IAS and Cisco's ACS.

The Client solves the problem of key distribution in wireless LANs by using public key authentication and encryption between

Wireless Access Points (WAP) and roaming stations to exchange dynamic Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) keys. In addition, network managers can control 802.1X user profiles from a centralized RADIUS server or, in the case of TTLS, from a RADIUS

Diameter or other AAA servers. The Client supports both wireless (802.11a/b/g) and Ethernet interfaces.

System Requirements

You need the following equipment and software to run AEGIS Client software:

• A computer with a network interface card and/or wireless network interface card installed that support the NDIS 5.1 standard for 802.11 WLAN object identifiers (OID). The AEGIS Client software installation routine expects to find your computer’s wireless card properly installed, even if it isn’t connected to a network. If the card isn’t in the computer, the installation program can’t make the proper program and protocol associations. Be sure your wireless card is installed!

• The appropriate version of the AEGIS Client software package for your operating system. Contact Hand Held Products for the correct version for your company.

Platforms Supported

There are several versions of AEGIS Client software for computers using a wide variety of operating systems. Specific capabilities of a particular version of AEGIS Client may vary according to the operating system. This is due to varying levels of support for different EAP types by manufacturers. Drivers for some types of network hardware and operating system combinations don’t support as many EAP types as others combinations.

The following platforms are supported:

• Windows Mobile Software 2003 [OS version "Pocket PC Version 4.20.1081 (Build 13100)"]

• Pocket PC 2002 [OS version "Pocket PC Version 3.0.11171 (Build 11178)"]

• CE.NET 4.1 [OS version "CE .NET Version 4.10 (Build 908)"]

• CE.NET 4.2 [OS version "CE .NET Version 4.20 (Build 1088)"]

Note: Verify the operating system version by tapping Start > Settings > System tab > About.

802.1X Supplicant Protocol Support

Support for the Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) - RFC 2284

Supported authentication methods are as follows:

• CHAP/MD5 - RFC 1994

• EAP TLS Authentication Protocol - RFC 2716

• EAP Tunneled TLS (TTLS) - Internet Draft February 2002

• Cisco LEAP and PEAP

• Microsoft PEAP

Tested against the following servers:

• Funk Odyssey 3.2 using TLS, LEAP and TTLS

• AEGIS Client 1.1.4 using MD5, TLS, TTLS, LEAP and PEAP

• Cisco ACS 3.2 using MD5, TLS, LEAP and PEAP

!

If you are using one of these authentication methodologies, you need to configure your 802.11b connection here, NOT through 802.11b Settings. However, if you want to set the AP Search Threshold above the default setting of Low

Density, you do need to change that setting in 802.11b Settings; for details, see Network Profile Tab on page 7-7.

7 - 12

Dolphin® 9500 Series Mobile Computer User’s Guide

Required Network Configuration Information Worksheets

Because AEGIS Client enables your terminal to access a network that is protected by the IEEE 802.1X protocol, you must configure EAP data communication to match your network server parameters. If the EAP configuration doesn’t match your network configuration, you can’t access the network.

Installing and configuring the Client usually takes less than 15 minutes, provided you have the required equipment, software, and configuration information. You need clear information from the network administrator about how the network’s authentication works.

The worksheets on the following pages provide space to record the required Client configuration information to set up the Client to match specific Extensible Authentication Protocols (EAP). The forms are designed so that hard copies can be filled out, copied, and distributed.

The client software supports the following EAP authentication methods:

• MD5

• LEAP

• TLS/SmartCard

• TTLS

• PEAP

There is a worksheet for each method. Complete the worksheet for the method you choose.

MD5 Worksheet

To configure AEGIS Client to use MD5 authentication, you need to know:

Opening the Client

To access the client the first time, tap Start > Programs > Meetinghouse AEGIS Client.

After the Client has been activated, you can:

1. Tap Start. The icon appears in the quick start tray on the Start menu. Tap the icon to open the Client.

2. Tap the icon in the lower left corner of the command bar.

Icon Indicators

The color of the icon indicates the status of the controlled ports.

Icon Color

Green

This color icon indicates that …

Authentication succeeded.

Yellow Authentication is in process.

Red Authentication failed.

If there is no yellow, red or green in the icon then either the ports are not being controlled by 802.1X, or there is no authentication activity on the controlled ports. The absence of yellow, red or green may also indicate that the network access server is not an 802.1X aware device.

Gray

Orange

The port is not in use or is disabled.

Either the Client isn’t running, or the port is not bound to the 802.1X protocol.

The port is associated, but there is no response to 802.11b packets.

If using WEP without 802.1x authentication, this will be the final state when the connection is complete. If using 802.1x authentication, it is either a transient condition or can indicate that attempts to authenticate have timed out as there was no response to 802.1X packets.

Blue There is no 802.11b activity. The port may not be connected to an 802.1X-aware entity.

Note: Different parts of the icon can have different colors if more than one interface on the system is running 802.1X. For example, if your terminal has more than one active network interface card (NIC) then different parts of the icon will have different colors corresponding to the state of each NIC.

Port Menu

On the main screen, tapping on a port opens a popup menu that allows the port to be enabled or disabled, configured, or deleted.

The port menu enables you to use 802.1X authentication, change the port configuration, or remove it from the port list. If there are no entries in the Port list, follow the advice in the troubleshooting section to resolve the problem.

Enable and Disable

These commands enable or disable 802.1X authentication on the port. The port should be enabled

before the protocol is started. Enabling a port is not the same as starting it (see Client Menu on page

7-18); however, both actions are required for the Client to work.

Configure

Delete

Opens the port configuration screen.

Removes an adapter from the port list. An unused port may be deleted from the port list. The radio card must not be in the device or the radio must be turned off.

Ports appear in the list only when the 802.1X protocol binds to the adapter. The protocol binds to the adapter when the adapter is in the device and the Client software is installed, or Install Protocol is

selected from the Client menu (see Client Menu on page 7-18).

Configuring the Client

The Client is configured in two separate areas:

1. Client Configuration area - enables you to configure user settings and is accessed from the Client menu in the command bar.

2. Port Settings area - enables you to configure Network Properties settings for individual wireless networks and is accessed from the Port menu.

Configuration Screens

Both Client Configuration and Port Settings areas lead you through a series of setup screens. The following diagram displays the different screens and how they are related:

Client Configuration Area

Each user account needs to define the protocol and the credentials used to authenticate a user. Because Windows Mobile devices are usually small devices with a single NIC and, usually, a single user, the initial configuration is usually the only time the software needs to be set up. The Client will need to be reconfigured if the device is used on multiple networks, or if different users share the computer.

Note: Fields are be grayed out if not relevant to the selected protocol.

Dolphin® 9500 Series Mobile Computer User’s Guide

User Tab

The User settings tab defines the protocol and the credentials used to authenticate a user.

Field

Profile

Identity

Password

Authentication type

Description

Multiple user credential profiles can be created for use when the user roams from one network to another. The drop-down list contains existing authentication credential profiles. Select a profile from the list to edit it in the fields that follow.

Tapping Add permits new profiles to be added to the list. A screen appears where you can enter a name for the new profile.

Enter a Profile name and tap OK. The name entered appears in the Profile drop-down list.

Tapping Delete deletes authentication profiles. To be deleted, a profile cannot be assigned to a configured network.

This is the 802.1X identity supplied to the authenticator. The identity value can be up to 63 ASCII characters and is case-sensitive.

For tunneled authentication protocols such as TTLS and PEAP, this identity (called the Phase 1 identity) is sent outside the protection of the encrypted tunnel. Therefore, it is recommended that this field not contain a true identity, but instead the identity “anonymous” and any desired realm

(e.g. [email protected]). For TTLS and PEAP, true user credentials (Phase 2 identity) are entered in the Tunneled authentication section.

Note: When used with PEAP and the .NET Enterprise Server Version 5.2, this field must contain the identity used in both Phase I and Phase II. The Phase II identity field is ignored.

This is the password used for MD5-Challenge or LEAP authentication. It may contain up to 63

ASCII characters and is case-sensitive. Asterisks appear instead of characters for enhanced security.

This is the authentication method to be used - MD5-Challenge, LEAP, PEAP, TLS, or TTLS.

Your network administrator should let you know the protocols supported by the RADIUS server.

The RADIUS server sits on the network and acts as a central credential repository for Access

Servers that receive the radio signals and ultimately block or allow users to attach to the network.

Dolphin® 9500 Series Mobile Computer User’s Guide

Field

Use certificate

Description

This is the certificate to be used during authentication. A certificate is required for TLS, optional for TTLS and PEAP, and unused by MD5 and LEAP. Therefore, this option becomes active only when TLS, TTLS, or PEAP is selected as the Authentication type.

If Use certificate is enabled, the client certificate displayed in the field is the one that is passed to the server for verification.

To select a client certificate, tap Change and select the certificate from the list that appears.

To appear in this list, certificates must be installed in the

system, for a description of this process see Installing

Certificates with CertAdd on page 7-34.

The Issued to field should match the Identity field and the user ID on the authentication server (i.e., RADIUS server) used by the authenticator.

Your certificate must be valid with respect to the authentication server. This generally means that the authentication server must accept the issuer of your certificate as a Certificate Authority.

Note: When obtaining a client certificate, do not enable strong private key protection. If you enable strong private key protection for a certificate, you will need to enter an access password for the certificate each time this certificate is used.

Tunneled authentication area

Tunneled authentication parameters are used by only by TLS, TTLS and PEAP protocols, in Phase 2 of authentication, and after the secure tunnel has been established. The fields in this section are active only if TLS, TTLS, or PEAP is selected as the Authentication type.

Identity

Password

Protocol

The user identity used in Phase 2 authentication. The identity specified may contain up to 63

ASCII characters, is case-sensitive and takes the form of a Network Access Identifier, consisting of <name of the user>@<user’s home realm>. The user’s home realm is optional and indicates the domain to which the tunneled transaction is to be routed.

Note: Because Microsoft .NET Enterprise Server Version 5.2 does not use this parameter for

PEAP, This field will have no effect for PEAP at this time. Phase 1 identity is used instead.

The password used for the tunneled authentication protocol specified. It may contain up to 63

ASCII characters and is case-sensitive. Asterisks appear instead of characters for enhanced security.

This parameter specifies the authentication protocol operating within the secure tunnel.

The following protocols are currently supported for TTLS: EAP-MD5, CHAP, PAP, MS-CHAP and MS-CHAP-V2.

The following protocols are currently supported for PEAP: EAP-MS-CHAP-V2, TLS/Smartcard, and Generic Token Card (EAP-GTC).

Description

These settings control the detail of the log messages generated by the Client. Each level is cumulative. By default, all errors, warnings, and information events are logged. Each entry records a severity code (of one [debug message] to four [error] asterisks), a time stamp, and a message.

Errors - only the most severe conditions are logged.

Warnings - less severe conditions are logged.

Information - all errors, warnings, and information events are logged. This is the default setting.

Debugging - creates a log message each time the Client detects or reacts to an event. Be advised that log entries fill memory quickly if the Debugging level is chosen. Do not use the

Debugging option for a significant length of time because most internal operations generate messages.

Tap this button to return log settings to the default settings.

Use this option only as directed by technical support.

Selecting this option disables other wireless utilities whether the Client is running or not. If not selected, other wireless utilities cannot apply their settings to the wireless card while the Client is running (although their status displays are usually unaffected). You will need to perform a soft reset whenever this setting is changed.

The interval at which the client polls the ports. This is used under different circumstances, for instance after physical changes such as card removal or insertion have been detected. This value should not be changed from the 10-second default unless so advised by technical support.

Server Tab

The Server identity tab defines the credentials the client uses to authenticate the server during TLS/TTLS/PEAP authentication message exchange. The Client uses this information to verify that the Client is communicating with a trusted server.

Field

Do not validate server certificate chain

Certificate issuer must be

Allow intermediate certificates

Server name must be

Must match exactly

Must contain domain name

Description

If this option is selected, the server certificate received during the TLS/TTLS/PEAP message exchange is not validated.

This is the certificate authority used during TLS/TTLS/PEAP message exchange. Any Trusted

CA is the default selection and means that any certificate authority can be used during authentication.

Both trusted intermediate certificate authorities and root authorities whose certificates exist in the system store are available for selection in the drop-down list.

This option is selected by default. It enables a number of unspecified certificates to be in the server certificate chain between the server certificate and the certificate authority indicated in the

Certificate issuer must be field. This allows the server certificate received during negotiation to be issued directly by the certificate authority or by one of its intermediate certificate authorities.

If disabled, then the selected Certificate issuer must have directly issued the server certificate.

This is either the server name or the domain the server belongs to, depending on which option is selected below the text field.

During authentication, this name will be compared to the server certificate’s Subject: CN field.

When selected, the server name entered must match the server name found on the certificate exactly.

When selected, the server name field identifies a domain and the certificate must have a server name belonging to this domain or to one of its sub-domains (e.g., zeelans.com, where the server is blueberry.zeelans.com).

Protocol Tab

The Protocol tab enables you to configure parameters that will apply to all the networks the selected port connects to.

Field

Protocol Settings

Display EAP notifications

Renew IP address

Description

These are the timer intervals and retry settings defined in the 802.1X standard. They determine how long the supplicant state machine will wait in a given state. These parameters shouldn’t be modified without an understanding of the supplicant state machine. For more information about the supplicant state machine, obtain its 802.1X protocol specification.

The parameters are:

Authentication Timeout - The period of time the Client remains in the authenticating or acquired state without receiving a response from the access point or switch.

Held Timeout - The period of time the Client remains in the held state after failing authentication.

Start Timeout - The period of time the Client remains in the connecting state before restarting when there is no response.

Number of Start Attempts - The number of times the Client restarts before giving up. At that point, the Client then defaults to the authenticated state, but there will be no network connectivity because the protocol exchange was never completed.

This option specifies that the EAPOL notification message will be displayed to the user. An authenticator may use such notification to inform you, for example, about a near password expiration. However, some authenticators send chatty and annoying notifications that may, for the convenience of the user, be suppressed. Note that all notifications are written to the event log even if they are not displayed.

Select this option to initiate a DHCP request to obtain a dynamic IP address after a successful authentication, but only if the client detects that the connected network (the SSID) has changed.

The result is that renewal should not occur upon re-authentication, but does occur at boot or when connecting to a different network. If you have a slow authenticator, you may wish to enable this option when configuring the service because a slow authenticator may prevent you from getting a DHCP-assigned IP address upon boot-up. This option is ignored if the given adapter has a static IP address.

Installing Certificates with CertAdd

Certificate Requirements

During configuration, you may have specified one or two certificates to use during the authentication process. The specified identity should match the Issued to field in the certificate and should be registered on the authentication server (i.e., RADIUS server) that is used by the authenticator. In addition, your certificate must be valid on the authentication server. This requirement depends on the authentication server and generally means that the authentication server must know the issuer of your certificate as a trusted Certificate Authority.

If the selected certificate does require a password or pass phrase to decode the private key, enter this value in the “Certificate

Pass Phrase” field. This value will be encrypted when the configuration is saved. However, on some systems, there may not be a certificate. If that is the case, you can use the section below as a primer on OS X certificate management.

About CertAdd

CertAdd is a stand-alone utility included with the Client that allows certificates to be selected and installed on a Windows Mobile device.

Installing Certificates with CertAdd

Client or Certificate Authority (CA) certificates can be imported from *.cer (same as *.der), *.p7b, or *.pfx files.

1. Download the certificate file to the My Documents folder. The location isn’t critical, although you may want to create a standard folder for consistency.

2. Go to Start > Programs > Meetinghouse Certificate Installer. The opening screen is displayed. All valid certificate file types located in the My Documents folder appear in the list.

Valid certificate files in the My

Documents folder

3. Tap and hold on a certificate in the list. A pop-up appears asking if you want to install the certificate.

SSID. Even though I have manually configured an access point with that name, the Client won't associate with it.

I am authenticated, but I don't get an IP address through DHCP.

I cannot attach to my old network that does not support 802.1x authentication, but is using WEP encryption.

• The license is not valid (If you have entered a time-limited license, is your clock on the device correct?).

• Restart the client - on the main screen tap Client > Restart.

• Perform a soft reset.

• If the radio is turned off or the radio card is not present, this will sometimes cause the port name to not appear.

• If the radio driver is very old and does not support NDIS 5.1 commands, the Client may not be able to detect it.

The wireless network interface appears, but when I select it and go to the "configure" menu, the Scan button is disabled.

Power up the radio; see Powering Up a Radio on page 4-17.

The default network profile instructs the client to attach to the first available access point. You must select a network, move it to the

Configured Networks list, and then move it above default in the list using the up arrow buttons.

Advice and Workarounds

Issue

I made changes, but they do not appear to have taken effect.

How do I enable peer-to-peer (ad-hoc) mode to have two clients communicate without an access point?

Possible Causes and Solutions

Always tap OK before exiting a screen you have changed. Then restart the Client from the Client menu on the main screen.

• On the Wireless Networks tab, add a new profile to the Configured

Network list.

• On the Profile Info tab, give each side the same network name (SSID).

• Select Peer-to-Peer Group (ad hoc mode) and Do active scan.

• On the WEP management section, select Use key for data encryption and enter an identical key for both clients.

• Verify that this network profile is the first (or only) one in the

Configured Network list and try to restart both clients at roughly the same time.

How 802.1X Works

The network elements in the above graphics are those involved in a typical wireless LAN. When 802.1X is running, a wireless device must authenticate itself with the access point in order to get access to the Existing LAN. With respect to the terms used in the 802.1X standard, access points (APs) function as authenticators and wireless devices function as supplicants. The authenticator keeps a control port status for each Client it is serving. If a Client has been authenticated, its control port status is said to be Authorized, and the Client can send application data to the LAN through the AP. Otherwise, the control port status is said to be Unauthorized, and application data cannot traverse the AP.

Dolphin® 9500 Series Mobile Computer User’s Guide

Typical Message Exchange Using MD5 or TLS

The above graphic displays the typical message exchange when the device and the AP support 802.1X. When an AP acting as an authenticator detects a wireless station on the LAN, it sends an EAP-Request for the user's identity to the terminal. In turn, the terminal responds with its identity, and the AP relays this identity to an authentication server, which is typically an external

RADIUS server.

The RADIUS server can then act as a central repository of user profile information. Such use of a centralized authentication server allows the user to access wireless LANs at many different points, but still be authenticated against the same server. In response to the Access-Request, the RADIUS server sends an Access-Challenge to the AP, which is then relayed in the form of an EAP-Request to the device. The device sends its credentials to the AP, which in turn relays them to the RADIUS server. The

RADIUS server determines whether access to the network is accepted or denied based on the Client's credentials.

Dolphin® 9500 Series Mobile Computer User’s Guide

Typical Message Exchange Using TTLS and PEAP

The above graphic shows a typical message flow for a TTLS transaction. TTLS authentication comprises two phases. In Phase

1, TLS is used to authenticate the TTLS server to the client. The TTLS server may optionally request authentication of the client's certificate, but by default the client verifies only the server's certificate. The TLS handshake is negotiated between the client and the TTLS server. Following the TLS handshake, Phase 2 may proceed using a secure channel (tunnel) provided by the TLS record layer. The secure tunnel is then used to exchange information for the negotiation of the following legacy protocols: EAP-

MD5, PAP, CHAP, MS-CHAP, or MS-CHAPV2 (subject to support by the AAA server). A TTLS server may perform the authentication, or the information may be de-tunneled and passed on to an AAA server. The AAA server is the server in the user's home domain where authentication and authorization are administered.

PEAP works in the same manner as TTLS. However, supports different legacy protocols within the encrypted Phase 2 tunnel.

Currently the tunneled protocols are EAP-MSChapV2 and EAP-TLS/SmartCard. Like TTLS, the use of a client certificate is optional, if one is used, the same certificate is used for Phase 1 and Phase 2. The client certificate is optional for both phases.

Benefits of 802.1X

Central User Administration

The Client allows network administrators to continue to use RADIUS or another AAA server as their centralized authentication server. In 802.11b, where authentication took place between the access point and the station, there was no concept of passing credentials from the access point to an authentication server. For LANs this was fine. However, as users began to use their devices in remote locations, the security provided became inadequate. 802.1X solves this problem by allowing access points to pass client credentials to the appropriate authentication server.

7 - 38

Dolphin® 9500 Series Mobile Computer User’s Guide

For example, the following graphic displays the authentication flow for a mobile user who wishes to create a virtual private network with his home office.

By using the Client, the user can associate with a wireless network provided by a third party, in this case the ISP. We assume that the company and the ISP have established a service relationship beforehand. When the ISP receives the user's credentials, the ISP proxies the credentials to the company's AAA server, which returns a message telling the ISP to either accept or deny the user access. This response is then propagated to the remote user.

Dynamic Session Specific Wireless Encryption Keys

There have been many published reports recently about the lack of security provided by the Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) protocol. One of the problems with WEP is that the shared key used by the station and the access point is inherently static. That is, this shared key will only change if it is manually reconfigured on both devices. The Client remedies this by supporting the

Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol. TLS ensures that a new shared key is generated each time a station associates itself with an access point. TLS has proven itself an excellent authentication and encryption protocol in commercial environments. The

Client also supports the MD5 and TTLS security protocols.

Additional Advantages of TTLS and PEAP

The Client provides the advantage of Tunneled TLS (TTLS) and PEAP support. These protocols provide the security of TLS with greatly reduced administrative load. Security is enhanced by never passing user ID and password in the clear. No "real" user

ID or password is required in Phase 1. After the secure tunnel is established, Phase 2, user credentials are passed in safe, encrypted form. To further enhance security, the WEP keys, which encrypt the data between the wireless card and the AP, may be automatically changed on a per-session basis, limiting the time available to an unauthorized sniffer to crack the keys. By limiting the session time (the reauthentication period), the keys can essentially be made uncrackable.

Administration is eased by greatly reduced certificate requirements in comparison to TLS. In TLS, each client must have a client certificate to pass to the server, and a CA certificate with which to verify a server certificate, while the server must have a client certificate from each user and CA certificates for each possible CA chain and its own server certificate. TTLS and PEAP require only that a single server certificate be created for the server to present to the client, and that the client have a CA certificate to verify the server. Because these are the same for each client on the network, they are easily managed, unlike TLS, where every client certificate is unique. TTLS and PEAP thus provide the security of a TLS channel without the need for managers to distribute and manage client certificates. Lastly, TTLS allows for the use of existing legacy authentication protocols. Administrators may continue to use established authentication databases.

Cisco LEAP

The message exchange used by Cisco LEAP is proprietary. This protocol is not a standard EAP type, but is supported by the

Client through a licensing arrangement with Cisco.

Relative Merits of Authentication Protocols

MD5 is the least secure of the EAP protocols as it only does a one-way authentication, and does not support automatic distribution and rotation of WEP keys, increasing the administrative burden of manual WEP key maintenance.

TLS, while the most secure EAP protocol, requires client certificates to be installed on each wireless client. Establishing and maintaining this PKI infrastructure is normally a burden most administrators do not feel is worth the extra level of security gained.

TTLS and PEAP bypassed the certificate issue by tunneling TLS, and thus eliminating the need for a certificate on the client side.

PEAP supports only EAP-compliant authentication protocols within the tunnel structure, and is rapidly becoming the most widely supported of the EAP methods. TTLS supports pre-EAP authentication protocols within the tunnel structure, and should be used in those circumstances when pre-EAP interior protocols are desirable.

Dolphin® 9500 Series Mobile Computer User’s Guide

LEAP is a pre-EAP, Cisco-proprietary protocol, with many of the features of EAP protocols. Cisco controls the ability of other vendors to implement this protocol, so it should be selected for use only when limited vendor choice for client, access-point, and server products is not a concern.

Wireless WAN Communications with GSM/GPRS

Overview

Dolphin 9500 terminals are the only terminals in the Dolphin 9500 Series can be configured with Wireless Wide Area Network

(WWAN) via an integrated Siemens

®

GSM/GPRS tri-band radio module.

Note: Dolphin 9550 mobile computers with pistol-grip do NOT support GSM/GPRS.

GSM

GPRS

GSM stands for Global System for Mobile communications. It is an open, non-proprietary wireless wide area networking system that is constantly evolving and growing. One of its great strengths is international roaming capability, which provides standardized dialing in more than 170 countries.

GPRS stands for General Packet Radio Service. It is a non-voice value added service that allows packet switched data and information to be instantly sent and received across a mobile telephone network.

Powering Up the GSM/GPRS Radio Driver

When the mobile computer is first initialized, the radio driver for the GSM module is installed. Before using the radio, make sure

that the GSM radio is powered up. For more information, see The Radio Manager on page 4-16.

Tri-Band Antenna

Dolphin 9500 terminals configured with a GSM/GPRS radio feature a tri-band antenna that supports 900, 1800 and 1900 MHz frequencies for worldwide mobile applications.

Requirements

Using GMS/GPRS on a Dolphin 9500 terminal requires:

• a network subscription to a GSM/GPRS network (you need to know what service providers are in your geographic area), and

• a SIM card that has been activated by the network service provider installed on the terminal.

Capabilities

Dolphin 9500 computers with integrated GSM/GPRS WWAN radios are optimized for the following two-way voice and data communications:

• GSM voice data ("dial-up")

• SMS (Short Message Service) text messages

• GPRS Class 10 - data transmissions average. 40-60 Kbps (wireless network carrier dependent)

Dolphin® 9500 Series Mobile Computer User’s Guide

9 - 1

SIM Card Installation

SIM stands for Subscriber Information Module. A SIM card stores the subscriber's personal information, GSM/GPRS radio settings, security key, contacts, etc. SIM cards can be installed and removed from compatible mobile devices, enabling you to switch devices without losing your personal information. SIM cards are obtained and activated by the network provider that supports your GSM/GPRS network.

On the Dolphin 9500 terminal, the SIM card door is located in the battery well on the back panel. This enables easy access to the SIM card while securing it under an installed battery.

To Install a SIM Card:

Note: You need a metric .050 Hex head wrench to open the SIM card door. The SIM card must be activated by the service provider prior to installation.

1. Turn off your terminal and lay it face-down on a flat surface.

2. Remove the battery pack. For details, see To Remove the Main Battery Pack on page 2-7.

Battery Interface

SIM Card Door

3. Using the Hex head wrench, unscrew the faceplate of the SIM card door.

4. Insert your SIM card. Make sure the interface on the card is connected to the SIM Card interface in the slot; the beveled corner is in the upper right corner.

5. Place the SIM card door over the secured SIM card and secure the allen screws.

Use Inbox to send and receive e-mail messages in either of these ways:

• Synchronize e-mail messages with Microsoft Exchange or Microsoft Outlook on your desktop computer.

• Send and receive e-mail messages by connecting directly to an e-mail server through an ISP or a network.

Synchronizing E-mail Messages

E-mail messages can be synchronized as part of the general synchronization process. You need to enable Inbox synchronization in ActiveSync. For information on enabling Inbox synchronization, see ActiveSync Help on the desktop computer.

During synchronization:

Dolphin® 9500 Series Mobile Computer User’s Guide

10 - 7

• Messages are copied from the mail folders of Exchange or Outlook on your desktop computer to the ActiveSync folder in Inbox on the terminal. By default, you will receive messages from the past three days only, the first 100 lines of each message, and file attachments of less than 100 KB in size.

• E-mail messages in subfolders must be selected in ActiveSync on your desktop computer to be transferred.

• E-mail messages in the Outbox folder on the terminal are transferred to Exchange or Outlook, and then sent from those programs.

Note: You can also synchronize e-mail messages with your desktop computer from a remote location. For more information, see Chapter 7.

Connecting Directly to an E-mail Server

In addition to synchronizing e-mail messages with your desktop computer, you can send and receive e-mail messages by connecting to an e-mail server. When you connect the terminal to the e-mail server, new messages are downloaded to the Inbox folder, messages in the Outbox folder are sent, and messages that have been deleted on the e-mail server are removed from the Inbox folder.

Messages received directly from an e-mail server are linked to your e-mail server rather than your desktop computer. When you delete a message on the terminal, it is also deleted from the e-mail server the next time you connect the terminal to the e-mail server according to the settings selected in ActiveSync.

You can work online or offline. When working online, you read and respond to messages while connected to the e-mail server.

Messages are sent as soon as you tap Send, which saves space on the terminal. When working offline, after you’ve downloaded new message headers or partial messages, you can disconnect from the e-mail server and then decide which messages to download completely. The next time you connect, Inbox downloads the complete messages you’ve marked for retrieval and sends the messages you’ve composed.

Receiving Messages

When you connect to your e-mail server or synchronize with your desktop computer, by default, you’ll receive messages from the last five days only, the first 100 lines of each new message, and file attachments of less than 100 KB in size. The original messages remain on the e-mail server or your desktop computer.

You can mark the messages that you want to retrieve in full during your next synchronization or e-mail server connection. In the message list, tap and hold the message you want to retrieve. On the pop-up menu, tap Mark for Download. The icons in the

Inbox message list give you visual indications of message status.

You specify your downloading preferences when you set up the service or select your synchronization options. You can change them at any time:

• Change options for Inbox synchronization using ActiveSync options. For more information, see ActiveSync Help.

• Change options for direct e-mail server connections in Inbox on the terminal. Tap Tools and then tap Options. On the Service tab, tap the service you want to change. Tap and hold the service and select Delete to remove a service.

Dolphin® 9500 Series Mobile Computer User’s Guide

Using the Message List

Composing Messages

1. Tap New.

2. In the To field, enter the e-mail or SMS address of one or more recipients, separating them with a semicolon (;), or select a name from the contact list by tapping the Address Book button.

3. Compose your message. To enter preset or frequently used messages, tap My Text and select a message.

4. Tap Send when you’ve finished the message.

If you are working offline, the message is moved to the Outbox folder and will be sent the next time you connect.

5. If you are sending an SMS message and want to know if it was received, tap Edit, Options, and select Request SMS text

message delivery notification before sending the message.

Managing E-mail Messages and Folders

Messages are displayed in one of five folders for each service you have created: Inbox, Deleted Items, Drafts, Outbox, and Sent

Items.

The Deleted Items folder contains messages that have been deleted on the device. The behavior of the Deleted and Sent Items folders depends on the selected options. To select these options, tap Tools > Options > Message tab.

To move a message to another folder, in the message list, tap and hold the message, tap Move to on the pop-up menu, and select the desired folder.

To create additional folders, tap Tools > Manage Folders.

Folder Behavior with a Direct Connection to an E-mail Server

The behavior of the folders you create depends on whether you are using ActiveSync, SMS, POP3, or IMAP4.

ActiveSync

If you use ActiveSync, e-mail messages in the Inbox folder in Outlook on your desktop computer are automatically synchronized with the terminal. You can select to synchronize additional folders by designating them for ActiveSync. The folders you create and the messages you move will then be mirrored on the server.

For example, if you move two messages from the Inbox folder to a folder named Family, and you have designated Family for synchronization, the server creates a copy of the Family folder and copies the messages into that folder. You can then read the messages while away from your desktop computer.

SMS

If you use SMS, messages are stored in the Inbox folder.

POP3

If you use POP3 and you move e-mail messages to a folder you created, the link is broken between the messages on the terminal and their copies on the mail server. The next time you connect, the mail server will see that the messages are missing from the terminal Inbox and delete them from the server. This prevents you from having duplicate copies of a message, but it also means that you will no longer have access to messages that you move to folders created from anywhere except the terminal.

IMAP4

If you use IMAP4, the folders you create and the e-mail messages you move are mirrored on the server. Therefore, messages are available to you anytime you connect to your mail server, whether it is from the terminal or desktop computer. This synchronization of folders occurs whenever you connect to your mail server, create new folders, or rename/delete folders when connected.

Pocket Internet Explorer

Use Microsoft Pocket Internet Explorer to view Web or WAP pages in either of these ways:

• During synchronization with your desktop computer, download your favorite links and mobile favorites that are stored in the

Mobile Favorites subfolder in Internet Explorer on the desktop computer.

• Connect to an ISP or network and browse the Web.

When connected to an ISP or network, you can also download files and programs from the Internet or intranet.

The Mobile Favorites Folder

Purpose

The Mobile Favorites folder was created on your desktop computer when you installed ActiveSync. It enables you to create

Favorite Links on your desktop computer that you can transfer to your Dolphin 9500 Series terminal. Those Favorite Links are then available for selection when browsing the internet on your terminal.

Process

First, you create your Favorite Links in the Mobile Favorites folder on your desktop computer. Then, the next time you sync your desktop computer with your terminal, those Mobile Favorites are transferred to the Mobile Favorites folder on to your terminal.

Only items stored in the Mobile Favorites subfolder in the Favorites folder in Internet Explorer on your desktop computer are synchronized with the Mobile Favorites folder on your terminal.

Note: Unless you mark a Favorite Link as a mobile favorite, only the link downloads to your terminal, and you will need to connect to your ISP or network to view the content. For more information on synchronization, see ActiveSync Help on the desktop computer.
