Dolphin 9500 Series Net Base
Quick Start Guide
Introduction
The Dolphin Net Base charges up to four Dolphin 9500 Series mobile computers
and enables each one to communicate with a host device over an Ethernet
network.
Unpacking the Net Base
!
Use only Dolphin 9500 Series peripherals, power cables, and power
adapters. Use of peripherals, cables, or power adapters not sold/
manufactured by Hand Held Products will void the warranty and may
damage the terminal.
Open the shipping box and inspect the package to see that the following
standard items are included:
• One Dolphin Net Base Ethernet cradle
• One Universal AC-DC Power Adapter for the Dolphin Net Base
• One Power Cord
• One Serial Extension Cable
• Two Mounting Brackets (available separately)
These are the items you need to set up, configure, and operate the Dolphin 9500
Series Net Base. If any items are missing or anything appears to be damaged,
contact your Customer Account Representative.
Keep the original packaging in case you need to return the Net Base for service
or store the Net Base while not in use.
Software Requirements
Any Dolphin 9500 Series terminal interfacing with the Net Base should have the
following software installed:
• Kernel 7.03, Service Pack 3 or higher and
• Utils, version 2.4 (Utils_24.cab) or higher
To confirm which software is loaded on your terminal, go to Start > Utils >
SysInfo. A document appears listing the software loaded on your terminal; the
kernel and service pack appear at the top of the list.

Setting up the Net Base
1. Make sure the power switch on the power adapter is in the OFF position.
2. Plug the power cord into the power adapter.
3. Plug the power connector cable into the power connector on the back of the
Net Base.
4. Plug the power cord into a standard wall outlet.
5. Plug the CAT-5 Ethernet cable into either of the RJ-45 connectors on the
back of the Net Base.
6. Plug the Ethernet cable into the network.
7. On the power adapter, turn the power switch to the ON position.
8. The COMM LEDs on all four slots flash binary codes as the Net Base finds
the DHCP server during the bootloader and kernel sequences.
LED Indicators
There are two LEDs per terminal well: the DOCK LED and the COMM LED.
Dock LED Lights solid green to indicate that the terminal is properly seated.
The terminal can communicate with the Net Base only when
properly seated in the well.
COMM LED Indicates the status of data transfer between the Dolphin terminal
and the Net Base.

Configuring the Network
By default, the Net Base is configured to obtain IP addresses automatically via
DHCP server. This means that in most cases you would simply “plug and play”
the unit. If necessary, you can use the configuration utility for dynamic network
configuration.
If Your DNS Server Supports Bind 8.3 or Later
1. Obtain the serial number from the label on the bottom panel of the Net Base.
2. Connect to the network.
3. Power up and wait until the COMM LEDs stop flashing. The COMM LEDs
stop flashing when the Net Base has found the DHCP server.
4. On your PC, open the web browser and enter the Net Base serial number
exactly as it appears on the label.
5. Press ENTER and the online configuration utility displays on your PC.
If Your DNS Server Does Not Support Bind 8.3 or Later
If your DNS server does not support Bind version 8.3 or later, Hyperterminal™
or an equivalent terminal emulator program must be installed on the host PC to
configure the Net Base.
1. Connect the serial cable to the Serial DB-9 Connector on the back of the Net
Base and a COM port on the host computer.
2. Start Hyperterminal or an equivalent terminal emulator program. Use these
settings: 115200 bps, 8,N,1.
3. Power up and wait until the COMM LEDs have stopped flashing. The COMM
LEDs stop flashing when the Net Base has found the DHCP server.

Charging
In addition to Ethernet communication, the Net Base charges the main battery of
each terminal in less than four hours. The intelligent battery charging system
incorporated into all Dolphin terminals prevents overcharging, which means that
Dolphin terminals may be stored in the Net Base indefinitely without damage to
the terminals, battery packs, or the Net Base.
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 the Dolphin 9500 Series terminal will void your warranty and may
result in damage to the Dolphin terminal or battery.
Note: The Net Base is compatible with all terminals in the Dolphin 9500 Series.
!
1. Install the Li-ion battery pack into the back panel of the terminal.
2. Slide the Dolphin terminal into one of the terminal wells until the Dock LED
lights solid green. Charging begins immediately.

Connecting the Dolphin Terminal to the Net Base
After the Net Base is installed, configured, and connected to the host computer,
you must connect the Dolphin terminal to the Net Base.
1. Insert a Dolphin terminal into a terminal well.
2. On the Dolphin terminal, tap Start > Utils > RASMan. The RASMan utility
initializes.
3. When the connection is established between the Dolphin terminal and the
Net Base, the terminal plays a sound and the communication icon appears in
the Navigation bar.
4. Upon connection, the Dolphin terminal is assigned an IP address from the
Net Base, which can be used by any application on the Dolphin terminal.
8
Dolphin® 9500 Series Net Base Quick Start Guide
5. When you exit RASMan or remove the terminal from the Net Base, the
terminal plays a sound and the disconnected icon appears in the Navigation
bar.
Applications on the Dolphin Terminal
Applications running on the Dolphin terminal when it is connected to the Net
Base should be designed specifically for a partially connected network. For more
details, please refer to the Best Practices for Partially Connected Networks
document available at www.handheld.com.
Mounting Options
The bottom panel offers two mounting options:
1. Insert a DIN Rail for desk mounting or
2. Use the wall mount kit (with brackets) for wall mounting.
DIN Rail slot
Screw slots
Using the DIN Rail
Use a standard 7.5mm high X 35mm wide DIN Rail to mount the Net Base to a
horizontal surface, such as a desk or table.
1. Slide the DIN Rail into the slot on the bottom panel.

2. Turn the Net Base and DIN Rail right side up.
3. Secure the DIN Rail to the horizontal mounting surface.
Using the Wall Mount Kit
Wall mount kits can be purchased separately to secure the Net Base to a wall or
other vertical surface. For the Net Base, you need to purchase two kits so that
you have two mounting brackets, one for each end of the Net Base. Each
mounting bracket contains an open slot in the back to accommodate the
connector cables.
1. Insert the round end of a screw into the round end of each screw slot. Slide
each screw towards the narrow end of the slot.
Screws in the narrow end of each slot
2. Use one washer/nut set on each screw to secure the screw in each slot.
