other special function keys. This section describes the
following keys. (Figure 2-12)
■
Numeric keypad: Your notebook allows certain keys to
serve dual purposes, both as standard characters and
as numeric and mathematical keys. The ability to toggle between the standard character and numerical keys
is controlled through the [NumLk] key.
■
Cursor keys: Your keyboard contains four arrow
keys for moving the cursor or insertion point to the
right, left, up, or down within windows, applications
and documents.
■
Function keys: The keys labeled [F1] through [F12],
are used in conjunction with the [Fn] key to produce
special actions that vary depending on what program

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

LifeBook Security/
Application Panel
A unique feature of your LifeBook notebook is the Security/Application Panel that allows you to secure your
notebook from unauthorized use. The Security/Application Panel also allows you to launch applications with the
touch of a button when your system is on.
If the security system is activated, upon starting your
notebook or resuming from Standby mode the security
system requires you to enter a password code using the
buttons on the Security/Application Panel. After
entering a correct password, your notebook resumes
system operation. (Figure 2-22)
NOTE: The functions of the buttons vary,
depending upon whether you have
Microsoft Windows® XP Professional or
Windows XP Tablet PC Edition preinstalled. Systems with Windows XP Tablet
PC Edition installed have additional
functions, as detailed in the tables on the
foillowing page.
SETTING UP YOUR SECURITY PANEL
When you receive your LifeBook notebook, the security
panel application is pre-installed without any passwords. The following sections provide detailed information on your security panel, how to set, change or
remove passwords.
Numbered Buttons
Use these buttons to enter your password.
Enter Button
After entering the button strokes, push this button to
enter the password into the LifeBook notebook.
PASSWORDS
The user and supervisor password may be set on this
notebook. A supervisor password is typically the same
for all LifeBook notebooks in a working group, office, or
company to allow for system management. Individual
notebooks in a group environment should not use a
common password. A password consists of one to five
button strokes plus the enter button. A valid stroke
consists of pushing one or up to four buttons simultaneously. The following are valid button strokes:
■
■
■
■
Pushing [4] by itself
Pushing [2] and [3] at the same time
Pushing [1], [2], and [4] at the same time
Pushing [1], [2], [3], and [4] at the same time
The following are valid passwords. The numbers
within braces ({ }) are button strokes using more
than one button.
■
■
■
{[2]+[3]}, [1], [enter]
[4], [enter]
{[1]+[3]}, {[2]+[3]+[4]}, [1], [4], [2], [enter]
Setting Passwords
When shipped from the factory, no passwords are set.
You have a choice of having no password or setting a
supervisor and user password. You must set the supervisor password before the user password.
■
■
The purpose of supervisor password is to
be able to bypass the user password in
case the user password is forgotten. The
supervisor password alone will not lock
the system.
You have to set both the supervisor and
user passwords for the security panel to
work.

you must enter the proper security password after
pushing the Suspend/Resume button.
Low Battery Operations
If your LifeBook notebook has low battery, pushing the
suspend/resume button only turns on the Security Indicator. Your notebook does not unlock, the Security Indicator turns off after one minute. To resume normal
operation, first attach a power supply to the notebook.
Then you may unlock the notebook.
UNINSTALLING THE SECURITY
PANEL APPLICATION
You have two options when uninstalling the security
panel application:
■
■
Uninstall the security panel application software.

still active. This will not allow any changes to the
password.
Uninstalling the Security Panel Software
Remove passwords when User wants no password
protection whatsoever and doesn’t want to give anybody
the utility to set a password on their computer. In this
case, if passwords (supervisor, user, or both) are set, the
passwords must first be cleared before removing the
application. To clear passwords, follow same procedure

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

SUSPEND/RESUME BUTTON
STANDBY MODE
When your LifeBook notebook is active, the Suspend/
Resume button can be used to manually put your LifeBook into Standby mode. Push the Suspend/Resume
button when your notebook is active, but not actively
accessing anything, and immediately release the button.
You will hear two short beeps and your system will enter
Standby mode. (See figure 2-5 on page 8 for location).
Standby mode in Windows saves the contents of your
notebook’s system memory during periods of inactivity
by maintaining power to critical parts. This mode will
turn off the CPU, the display, the hard drive, and all of
the other internal components except those necessary to
maintain system memory and allow for restarting. Your
notebook can be put in Standby mode by:
If your notebook is suspended, pushing the Suspend/
Resume button will return your notebook to active
operation. You can tell whether or not your system is in
Standby mode by looking at the Power indicator. See
“Power Indicator” on page 13. If the indicator is visible
and not flashing, your notebook is fully operational. If
the indicator is both visible and flashing, your notebook
is in Standby mode. If the indicator is not visible at all,
the power is off or your notebook is in Hibernate mode.

information, and any other data required to support the
operation(s) in progress. When you resume operation
from Standby mode, your notebook will return to the
point where it left off. To resume operation, you must
use the Suspend/Resume button to resume operation,
and there must be an adequate power source available,
or your notebook will not resume.
If you are running your LifeBook notebook
on battery power, be aware that the
battery continues to discharge while your
notebook is in Standby mode, though not
as fast as when fully operational.
HIBERNATE MODE
Hibernate mode saves the contents of your
notebook’s system memory to the hard drive as a part of
the Suspend/Resume mode. Your notebook is preconfigured to perform this function. The Hibernate
mode can also be configured through the system BIOS
to run in other ways depending on what you need to
accomplish. See “BIOS Setup Utility” on page 31.
34
■
The Standby or Hibernate modes should
not be used with certain PC Cards.
Check your PC Card documentation for
more information.
■
Disabling the Suspend/Resume button
prevents it from being used to put your
notebook in Standby or Hibernate
mode. The resume function of the
button cannot be disabled.
■
If your notebook is actively accessing
information when you enter the Standby
or Hibernate mode, changes to open
files are not lost. The files are left open
and memory is kept active during
Standby mode or the memory is transferred to the internal hard drive during
Hibernate mode.
■
When PC Cards or external devices are
in use, Save-to-Disk mode cannot return
to the exact state prior to suspension,
because all of the peripheral devices will
be re-initialized when the system
restarts.
■
The main advantage of using the
Hibernate function is that power is not
required to maintain your data. This is
particularly important if you will be leaving your notebook in a suspended state
for a prolonged period of time. The
drawback of using Hibernate mode is
that it lengthens the power down and
power up sequences and resets peripheral devices.
Using Hibernate Mode
To enable or disable the Hibernation feature follow these
easy steps:
1. From the Start menu, select Settings, and then select
Control Panel --> Power Options.
2. Select the Hibernate tab, and then select the box to
enable or disable this feature.
3. Click [Apply].
To use Hibernate mode:
1. Click the Ctrl-Alt-Del keys.
2. Select Shut Down from the top of the window.
3. Select Hibernate from the drop down list that
appears.
DISPLAY TIMEOUT
The display timeout is a power management feature.
This feature saves power by turning off the display if
there is no keyboard or pointer activity for the user
selected timeout period. Any keyboard or pointer
activity will cause the display to restart automatically.
This feature is independent of the Suspend/Resume
button and can be enabled and disabled in Windows
Power Management and BIOS setup utility (APM only).
See “BIOS Setup Utility” on page 31.
HARD DISK TIMEOUT
The hard disk timeout is another one of the power
management parameters. This feature saves power by
turning off the hard drive if there is no hard drive
activity for the user selected timeout period. Any
attempt to access the hard drive will cause it to restart
automatically. This feature is independent of the
Suspend/Resume button and can be enabled and
disabled in Windows and BIOS setup utility (APM
only). See “BIOS Setup Utility” on page 31.
WINDOWS POWER MANAGEMENT
The Power Management icon located in the Windows
Control Panel allows you to configure some of the power
management settings. For example, you can use the
Power Management to set the timeout values for turning
off the display and hard disks whether you are running
the notebook on battery power or one of the adapters.
RESTARTING THE SYSTEM
If your system is on and you need to restart it, be sure
that you use the following procedure.
1. Click the Start button, and then click Shut Down.
2. Select the Restart option from within the Windows
Shut Down dialog box.
B Series.book Page 35 Friday, May 19, 2006 3:00 PM
Getting Started
3. Click OK. Your notebook will shut down and then
reboot.
Turning off your LifeBook notebook
without exiting Windows or turning on
your notebook within 10 seconds of the
notebook being shut off may cause an
error when you start the next time.
POWER OFF
Before turning off the power by choosing Shut Down
from the Windows Start menu, check that the Hard
Drive, PC Card and the Floppy Disk Drive Access indicators are all Off. (See Figure 2-5 on page 8) If you turn
off the power while accessing a disk or PC Card there is a
risk of data loss. To ensure that your notebook shuts
down without error, use the Windows shut down procedure.
Be sure to close all files, exit all
applications, and shut down your
operating system prior to turning off the
power. If files are open when you turn off
power, you will lose any changes that
have not been saved, and may cause disk
errors.
Using the correct procedure to shut down from
Windows, allows your notebook to complete its operations and turn off power in the proper sequence to avoid
errors. The proper sequence is:
1. Click the Start button, and then click Shut Down.
2. Select the Shut Down option from the dropdown
list.
If you are going to store your notebook for a month or
more see the Care and Maintenance section.

User Installable Features
Lithium ion Battery
Your LifeBook notebook has a Lithium ion battery that
provides power for operating your notebook when no
external power source is available. The battery is durable
and long lasting, but should not be exposed to extreme
temperatures, high voltages, chemicals or other hazards.
The Lithium ion battery operating time may become
shorter if it is used under the following conditions:
■
■
When used at temperatures that exceed a low of 40°F
(5°C) or a high of 95°F (35°C). Extreme temperatures
not only reduce charging efficiency, but can also cause
battery deterioration. The Charging icon on the Status
Indicator panel will flash when you try to charge a
battery that is outside its operating temperature range.
See “Battery Charging Indicator” on page 14.
When using a high current device such as a modem,
CD-ROM drive, or the hard drive. Using the AC
adapter when operating such devices will help to
conserve your battery life.
■
■
Do not leave a faulty battery in your
notebook. It may damage your AC
adapter, optional Auto/Airline adapter,
another battery or your notebook
itself. It may also prevent operation of
your notebook by draining all available current into the bad battery.
Under federal, state, or local law it
may be illegal to dispose of batteries
by putting them in the trash. Please
take care of our environment and
dispose of batteries properly. Check
with your local government authority
for details regarding recycling or
disposing of old batteries. If you
cannot find this information elsewhere, contact your support representative at 1-800-8Fujitsu.
Actual battery life will vary based on
screen brightness, applications, features,
power management settings, battery
condition and other customer preferences.
Optical drive or hard drive usage may also
have a significant impact on battery life.
The battery charging capacity is reduced
as the battery ages. If your battery is
running low quickly, you should replace it
with a new one.
RECHARGING THE BATTERIES
If you want to know the condition of the primary
Lithium ion battery, check the Battery Level indicator
located on the Status Indicator panel. The indicator
changes as the battery level changes.
The Lithium ion battery is recharged internally using
the AC adapter or Auto/Airline adapter. To recharge the
battery make sure the battery that needs to be charged
is installed in your notebook and connect the AC or
Auto/Airline adapter.
Make sure that the Battery Charging
indicator and the percentage charge is
shown inside the Battery Level icon on the
Status Indicator Panel.
There is no memory effect on the Lithium ion battery
therefore you do not need to discharge the battery
completely before recharging. The charge times will be
significantly longer if your notebook is in use while the
battery is charging. If you want to charge the battery
more quickly, put your notebook into Standby mode,
or turn it off while the adapter is charging the battery.
See “Power Management” on page 33.
Using heavy current devices such as a
modem or frequent CD-ROM and
PCMCIA powered external devices
accesses may prevent charging completely.
Low Battery State
When the battery is running low, your notebook will
beep every 15 seconds and the Battery Level indicator
will flash. If you do not respond to the low battery
alarm, the batteries will continue to discharge until they
are too low to operate. When this happens there will be a
multiple beep alarm and the Battery Level indicator will
show a dead battery. Your LifeBook will then go into
Standby mode to try and protect your data for as long as
possible. There is no guarantee that your data will not be
lost once the notebook reaches this point.
■
You may not be able to hear the audio
alarm if the volume control is set too low
or is turned off by either the hardware or
software. However, you will still be able
to see the Battery Level indicator flash.
Once the low battery alarm occurs you
must save all your active data and put
your notebook into Standby mode until
you can provide a new power source.
You should provide a charged battery, an
AC power adapter, or Auto/Airline as
soon as possible.

Dead Battery Suspend mode shows on the Status indicator just like the normal Standby mode. Once your
notebook goes into Dead Battery Suspend mode you will
be unable to resume operation until you provide a
source of power either from an adapter, or a charged
battery. Once you have provided power, you will need to
press the Suspend/Resume button to resume operation.
In the Dead Battery Suspend mode, your data can be
maintained for some time, but if a power source is not
provided promptly, the Power indicator will stop
flashing and go out, meaning that you have lost the data
that was not stored. Once you provide power, you can
continue to use your notebook while an adapter is
charging the battery.
Shorted Batteries
The Status Indicator panel uses a symbol inside the
battery outline of the Battery Level indicator to display
the operating level available in that battery.
(See figure 2-11 on page 13) If this display shows a
Shorted Battery, it means that the battery is damaged
and must be replaced so it does not damage any other
parts of your notebook.
REPLACING THE BATTERY
Your LifeBook B6200 Series notebook comes with one
battery pack, but it’s a good idea to purchase a second
one. By keeping a spare battery fully charged, you can
immediately swap with one that is not charged. The
battery can only be replaced by cold-swapping; doing
otherwise could result in loss of data. (Cold swapping
means swapping batteries when the system has been
powered down.)
Cold-swapping Batteries
To cold-swap batteries in your battery bay follow these
easy steps: (Figure 4-1)
1. Have a charged battery ready to install.
2. Shut down your notebook and disconnect the AC
adapter.

CONNECTING AN OPTIONAL
EXTERNAL FLOPPY DISK DRIVE
Your LifeBook notebook may have an optional external
floppy disk drive which can read and write information
on removable 1.44MB and 720KB floppy disks.
The USB floppy disk drive can be installed while your
system is in a suspended state (“warm” connection),
while the system is running (“hot” connection), or when
the system is off (“cold” connection).

To load a disk into your disk drive, follow these steps:
1. Orient the disk so that its label is facing upwards
and the shutter side is pointing towards the drive.
(Figure 4-3)
2. Push the disk into the drive until the Eject button
pops out and you hear a click.
When there is no disk in the drive, the
Eject button is flush with your LifeBook
notebook.
EJECTING A DISK
To eject a disk from the disk drive, follow these steps:
1. Check that the Floppy Disk Drive Access indicator
is inactive.
2. Press the Eject button. This will push your disk
partially out of the drive.
3. Remove the disk.
If you eject the disk while the Floppy Disk
Drive Access indicator is active, there is a
risk of damaging the data on the disk, the
disk itself or even the disk drive.
PREPARING A DISK FOR USE
Figure 4-4. USB floppy disk drive cable and connection
Attach the external USB floppy disk drive by inserting
the end of the cable connector into the USB port. See the
figure above.
See your computer’s User’s Guide to determine the location of the USB port.
Your computer will automatically detect the floppy disk
drive and activate it within your system. The drive letters
associated with the floppy disk drive will be created and
listed under My Computer and Windows Explorer.
Before you can use a new disk, it needs to be prepared
so your notebook knows where to store information.
This preparation is called formatting or initializing a
disk. You will need to format new disks, unless they are
preformatted. (Please refer to your operating system
manual for step-by-step instructions on formatting a disk)
To prevent accidental erasure of the data stored on a
disk, slide the “write protect” tab until a small hole is
exposed. This sets the disk into a protected state where
nothing can be added or removed. If you want to add or
remove data on a protected disk, slide the “write
protect” tab to close the small hole. (Figure 4-5)

Your notebook has been configured with a minimum of
512 MB of high speed DDR2 533 MHz RAM factory
installed. In addition to the installed memory, there is a
second DIMM slot in which you can install a second
module. You can also increase your notebook’s memory
capacity by replacing the original module with a higher
capacity module (2 GB maximum). The memory upgrade
must be a dual-in-line 533 MHz DDR2 module. (To be
certain the correct module is used, you should only use
Fujitsu memory modules. To order, go to the Fujitsu
accessories website: www.shopfujitsu.com).
INSTALLING A MEMORY MODULE

Care and Maintenance
If you use your LifeBook notebook carefully, you will
increase its life and reliability. This section provides
some tips for looking after the notebook and its devices.
■
The system contains components that
can be severely damaged by electrostatic discharge (ESD). To minimize risk
to the components, observe the
following precautions:
■
■
■
■
Before docking or undocking your
LifeBook notebook (when using a port
replicator), it is a good practice to
always touch a grounded metal object
to discharge static electricity built up
in your body.
Be sure to power down your system
before adding or removing system
components. Even if the system is in
hibernate or standby states, data
could be lost or memory could be
damaged if power is still available to
the system.
When installing or removing a
memory module, hold it by the edge
so as not to touch any contacts or
chips. Be careful not to touch any
internal computer terminals or components; the oil from your fingers could
cause a short to the components.
Electrical equipment may be hazardous if
misused. Operations of this product or
similar products, must always be supervised by an adult. Do not allow children
access to the interior of any electrical
products and do not permit them to
handle any cables.

■ Your LifeBook notebook is a durable but sensitive
electronic device. Treat it with care.
■ Make a habit of transporting it in a suitable
carrying case.
■ To protect your notebook from damage and to optimize system performance, be sure to keep all air all
vents unobstructed, clean, and clear of debris. This
may require periodic cleaning, depending upon the
environment in which the system is used.
■ Do not operate the notebook in areas where the air
vents can be obstructed, such as in tight enclosures or
on soft surfaces like a bed or cushion.
■ Do not attempt to service the computer yourself.
Always follow installation instructions closely.
■ Keep it away from food and beverages.
■ If you accidentally spill liquid on your notebook:
1. Turn it off.
2. Position it so that the liquid can run out.
■
■
■
■
■
■
■
■
■
3. Let it dry out for 24 hours, or longer if needed.
4. If your notebook will not boot after it has dried
out, call your support representative.
Do not use your notebook in a wet environment (near
a bathtub, swimming pool).
Always use the AC adapter and batteries that are
approved for your notebook.
Avoid exposure to sand, dust and other
environmental hazards.
Do not expose your notebook to direct sunlight for
long periods of time as temperatures above
140° F (60° C) may damage your notebook.
Keep the covers closed on the connectors and slots
when they are not in use.
Do not put heavy or sharp objects on the computer.
If you are carrying your notebook in a briefcase, or
any other carrying case, make sure that there are no
objects in the case pressing on the lid.
Do not drop your notebook.
Do not touch the screen with any sharp objects.
Cleaning your LifeBook notebook
■
Always disconnect the power plug. (Pull the plug,
not the cord.)
■
Clean your notebook with a damp, lint-free cloth. Do
not use abrasives or solvents.
■
Use a soft cloth to remove dust from the screen.
Never use glass cleaners.
Storing your LifeBook notebook
■ If storing your notebook for a month or longer, turn
the notebook off, fully charge the battery, then remove
and store all Lithium ion batteries.
■ Store your notebook and batteries separately. If you
store your notebook with a battery installed, the
battery will discharge, and battery life will be reduced.
In addition, a faulty battery might damage the notebook.
■ Store your notebook in a cool, dry location.
Temperatures should remain between -25ºC (13ºF)
and 60ºC (140ºF).
Traveling with your LifeBook notebook
■ Do not transport your notebook while it is turned on.
■
Do not check your notebook as baggage. Carry it with
you.
■
When traveling with the hard drive removed, wrap the
drive in a non-conducting materials (cloth or paper).
If you have the drive checked by hand, be ready to
install the drive if needed. Never put your hard drive
through a metal detector. Have your hard drive handinspected by security personnel. You can however, put
your hard drive through a properly tuned X-ray
machine.
■ Take the necessary plug adapters if you're traveling
overseas. Check the following diagram to determine
which adapter you'll need or ask your travel agent.

KEYBOARD
Caring for your Keyboard
The keyboard of your computer is a very sensitive
instrument. It is made up of many switches that are
activated when you press on the keys. The keyboard is a
major component of the heat dissipation system in a
notebook. Due to heat and size considerations the
keyboard is not sealed. Because the keys are so close
together, it is not easy for the user to see when liquids
have fallen onto the circuitry below the keys.
When attempting to clean the keyboard with a spray-on
cleaner or rag soaked with cleaner, the liquid can drip
unseen onto the circuitry. If liquid seeps between the
layers of circuitry, it can cause corrosion or other
damage to the circuits. This can result in keys which no
longer operate, or which display the wrong characters.
There is no repair for this problem other than replacement. The solution is to become aware of the issue and
take appropriate steps to protect your keyboard.
Cleaning should be done with a rag lightly dampened
with cleaning solution. Use extreme care to prevent
liquid from dripping between the keys. Spraying directly
on the keys should be avoided. The spray should first be
applied to the cloth, then the cloth wiped over the keys.
FLOPPY DISKS AND DRIVES
Caring for your Floppy Disks
■
Avoid using the floppy disks in damp and
dusty locations.
■
Never store a floppy disk near a magnet or
magnetic field.
■
Do not use a pencil or an eraser on a disk or
disk label.
■
Avoid storing the floppy disks in extremely hot or cold
locations, or in locations subject to severe temperature
changes. Store at temperatures between 50º F (10ºC)
and 125ºF (52ºC).
■
Do not touch the exposed part of the disk
behind the metal shutter.
Caring for your optional Floppy Disk Drive
■ To clean, wipe the floppy disk drive clean with a dry
soft cloth, or with a soft cloth dampened with water or
a solution of neutral detergent. Never use benzene,
paint thinner or other volatile material.
■
Avoid storing the floppy disk drive in extremely hot or
cold locations, or in locations subject to severe temperature changes. Store at temperatures between
50º F (10ºC) and 125ºF (52ºC).
■
Keep the floppy disk drive out of direct sunlight and
away from heating equipment.
■
Avoid storing the floppy disk drive in locations subject
to shock and vibration.
■
Never use the floppy disk drive with any liquid, metal,
or other foreign matter inside the floppy disk
drive or disk.
■
Never disassemble or dismantle your floppy disk
drive.
BATTERIES
Caring for your Batteries
■
Always handle batteries carefully.
■
Do not short-circuit the battery terminals (that is, do
not touch both terminals with a metal object). Do not
carry lose batteries in a pocket or purse where they
may mix with coins, keys, or other metal objects.
Doing so may cause an explosion or fire.

Before Using the Wireless LAN
This manual describes the procedures required to properly setup and configure the optional integrated Wireless
LAN Mini-PCI device (referred to as "WLAN device" in
the rest of the manual). Before using the WLAN device,
read this manual carefully to ensure it's correct operation. Keep this manual in a safe place for future reference.
Wireless LAN Devices Covered by this Document
This document is applicable to systems containing an
Atheros AR5006EXS (AR5BXB6) Mini-PCI wireless
network card (802.11a+b/g).
Characteristics of the WLAN Device
■
The WLAN device is a Mini-PCI card attached to the
mainboard of the mobile computer.
■
■
It is a dual-band radio that operates in two license-free
RF bands, therefore eliminating the need to procure
an FCC license to operate. It operates in the 2.4GHz
Industrial, Scientific, and Medical (ISM) RF band.
Additionally, the Atheros device operates in the lower,
middle, and upper bands of the 5GHz Unlicensed
National Information Infrastructure (UNII) bands.
The Atheros SuperAG WLAN is capable of three operating modes, IEEE802.11a, IEEE802.11b and
IEEE802.11g, wireless LAN standards governed by the
IEEE (Institute of Electronics and Electrical Engineers).
■
Encoding of data is modulated using Direct Sequence
Spread Spectrum (DSSS) and Complementary Code
Keying (CCK) when the WLAN device is operating in
IEEE 802.11b mode and Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) when operating in
IEEE802.11a or IEEE802.11g mode.
■
The WLAN device is Wi-Fi certified and operates at
the maximum data transfer rate of 54 Mbps in
Figure A-1. Ad Hoc Mode Network
92
IEEE802.11a or IEEE802.11g mode and 11 Mbps in
IEEE802.11b mode.
■
The WLAN device supports the following encryption
methods - WEP, TKIP, CKIP, and AES encryption.
WIRELESS LAN MODES USING THIS DEVICE
Ad Hoc Mode
(See Figure A-1)
"Ad Hoc Mode" refers to a wireless network architecture
where wireless network connectivity between multiple
computers is established without a central wireless
network device, typically known as Access Point(s).
Connectivity is accomplished using only client devices
in a peer-to-peer fashion. That is why Ad Hoc networks
are also known as peer-to-peer networks. Ad Hoc
networks are an easy and inexpensive method for establishing network connectivity between multiple
computers.
Ad Hoc mode requires that the SSID (service set identifier), network authentication, and encryption key
settings are identically configured on all computers in
the Ad Hoc network.
Access Point (Infrastructure) Mode
(See Figure A-2)
Infrastructure mode refers to a wireless network architecture in which devices communicate with wireless or
wired network devices by communicating through an
Access Point. In infrastructure mode, wireless devices
can communicate with each other or with a wired
network. Corporate wireless networks operate in infrastructure mode because they require access to the wired
LAN in order to access computers, devices, and services
such as file servers, printers, and databases.

How to Handle This Device
The WLAN device comes pre-installed in your mobile
computer. Under normal circumstances, it should not
be necessary for you to remove or re-install it. The
operating system that your mobile computer comes with
has been pre-configured to support the WLAN device.
WIRELESS NETWORK CONSIDERATIONS
■
The Atheros WLAN device supports IEEE802.11a/b/g
and operates in the 2.4GHz ISM band and the 5 GHz
UNII bands.
■
Microwave ovens will interfere with the operation of
WLAN device as microwave ovens operate in the same
2.4GHz frequency range that IEEE802.11b/g devices
operate in. Interference by microwaves does not occur
with IEEE802.11a radio which operates in the 5 GHz
RF band.
■
Wireless devices that transmit in the 2.4GHz frequency range may interfere with the operation of
WLAN devices in IEEE802.11b/g modes. Symptoms of
interference include reduced throughput, intermittent
disconnects, and large amounts of frame errors. It is
HIGHLY recommended that these interfering devices
be powered off to ensure the proper operation of the
WLAN device.
■
In Windows, using the Atheros Client Utility software.
Deactivation using the Wireless On/Off Switch
The WLAN device can be deactivated quickly and efficiently by toggling the Wireless On/Off Switch to the Off
position. (Figure A-3)

Wireless LAN Glossary
GLOSSARY
Ad Hoc Mode
Ad Hoc Mode refers to a wireless network architecture
where wireless network connectivity between multiple
computers is established without a central wireless
network device, typically known as Access Points.
Connectivity is accomplished using only client devices
in a peer-to-peer fashion. For details, refer to “Ad hoc
connection” on page 92.
Channel
Range of narrow-band frequencies used by the WLAN
device to transmit data. IEEE802.11b/g - 11 channels, 22
MHz wide channels.
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
A protocol that provides a means to dynamically allocate
IP addresses to computers on a local area network.
DNS (Domain Name System)
A data query service that provides a mechanism with
which to translate host names into Internet addresses.
IEEE802.11a
Wireless LAN standard that supports a maximum data
rate of 54 Mbps. 802.11a devices operate in the 5 GHz
lower and middle UNII bands.
IEEE802.11b
Wireless LAN standard that supports a maximum data
rate of 11 Mbps. 802.11b devices operate in the 2.4 GHz
ISM band.
Access point
Wireless network device used to bridge wireless and
wired network traffic.
IP address
The logical 32-bit host address defined by the Internet
Protocol that uniquely identifies a computer on a
network. The IP address is usually expressed in dotted
decimal notation.
LAN (Local Area Network)
A LAN or Local Area Network is a computer network
(or data communications network) which is confined to
a limited geographical area.
MAC address (Media Access Control Address)
A MAC address (also called an Ethernet address or IEEE
MAC address) is the 48-bit address (typically written as
twelve hexadecimal digits, 0 through 9 and A through F,
or as six hexadecimal numbers separated by periods or
colons, e.g., 0080002012ef, 0:80:0:2:20:ef) which
uniquely identifies a computer that has an Ethernet
interface.
MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit)
The maximum size of data which can be transmitted at
one time in networks including the Internet. In an environment whose maximum size of data is too large to
correctly receive data, normal communications can be
restored by setting the size of MTU to a smaller value.
Network key
Data that is used for encrypting data in data communication. The personal computer uses the same network
key both for data encryption and decryption, therefore,
it is necessary to set the same network key as the other
side of communication.
Network name (SSID: Service Set Identifier)
When a wireless LAN network is configured, grouping is
performed to avoid interference or data theft. This
grouping is performed with “Network name (SSID)”. In
order to improve security, the network key is set
allowing no communication unless “Network name
(SSID)” coincides with the network key.
Open system authentication
Null authentication method specified in the 802.11 standard that performs no authentication checks on a wireless client before allowing it to associate.
PPPoE (Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet)
A method of allowing the authentication protocol
adopted in telephone line connection (PPP) to be used
over an Ethernet.
Protocol
A procedure or rule of delivering data among
computers. Ordered data communication is allowed by
making all conditions required for communication
including the method of data transmission/reception
and actions upon communication errors into procedures.
Shared key authentication
99
B Series.book Page 100 Friday, May 19, 2006 3:00 PM
LifeBook B6200 Series - Appendix A
802.11 network authentication method in which the AP
sends the client device a challenge text packet that the
client must then encrypt with the correct WEP key and
return to the AP. If the client has the wrong key or no
key, authentication will fail and the client will not be
allowed to associate with the AP. Shared key authentication is not considered secure, because a hacker who
detects both the clear-text challenge and the same challenge encrypted with a WEP key can decipher the WEP
key.
SSID (Service Set Identifier)
Service Set Identifier, a 32-character unique identifier
attached to the header of packets sent over a WLAN that
acts as a password when a mobile device tries to connect
to the BSS. The SSID differentiates one WLAN from
another, so all access points and all devices attempting to
connect to a specific WLAN must use the same SSID. A
device will not be permitted to join the BSS unless it can
provide the unique SSID. Because the SSID is broadcast
in plain text, it does not supply any security to the
network.
Subnet mask
TCP-IP network is controlled by being divided into
multiple smaller networks (subnets). IP address consists
of the subnet address and the address of each computer.
Subnet mask defines how many bits of IP address
comprise the subnet address. The same value shall be set
among computers communicating with each other.
TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet
Protocol)
A standard protocol of the Internet.
Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi, or Wireless Fidelity, is a set of standards for wireless local area networks (WLAN) based on the IEEE
802.11 specifications. Certified products can use the official Wi-Fi logo, which indicates that the product is
interoperable with any other product also showing that
logo.

IP address information
ABOUT IP ADDRESSES
IP addressing is much more complicated
than can be briefly explained in this
document. You are advised to consult with
your network administrator for additional
information.
If IP address is unknown, set IP address as follows,
or,
If you have an access point (DHCP server) on the
network, set the IP address as follows:
[Obtain an IP address automatically]
A DHCP server is a server that
automatically assigns IP addresses to
computers or other devices in the network.
There is no DHCP server for the AdHoc
network.
If the IP address is already assigned to the computer in
the network, ask the network administrator to check the
IP address to be set for the computer.
If no access point is found in the network:
An IP address is expressed with four values in the range
between 1 and 255.
Set the each computer as follows: The value in parentheses is a subnet mask.
<Example>
Computer A: 192.168.100.2 (255.255.255.0)
Computer B: 192.168.100.3 (255.255.255.0)

Fingerprint Sensor Device
INTRODUCING THE
FINGERPRINT SENSOR DEVICE
Your system has a fingerprint sensor device at the bottom
center of the touchpad. (See Figure 2-5 on page 8 for location)
INSTALLING OMNIPASS
If OmniPass has already been installed on your system,
skip this section and go directly to “User Enrollment” on
page 108. You can determine whether OmniPass has
already been installed by checking to see if the following
are present:
■
■
The presence of the gold key-shaped OmniPass icon in
the system tray at the bottom right of the screen.
The presence of the Softex program group in the
Programs group of the Start menu
System Requirements
The OmniPass application requires space on your hard
drive; it also requires specific Operating Systems (OS’s).
The minimum requirements are as follows:
■
■
Figure B-1 Fingerprint sensor
With a fingerprint sensor, you can avoid having to enter a
username and password every time you want to:
■
Log onto Windows
■
Recover from suspend mode
■
Cancel a password-protected screen saver
■
Log into homepages that require a username and password
After you have “enrolled” - or registered - your fingerprint, you can simply swipe your fingertip over the
sensor for the system to recognize you.
The fingerprint sensor uses Softex OmniPass which
provides password management capabilities to Microsoft
Windows operating systems. OmniPass enables you to
use a "master password" for all Windows, applications,
and on-line passwords.
OmniPass requires users to authenticate themselves
using the fingerprint sensor before granting access to the
Windows desktop. This device results in a secure authentication system for restricting access to your computer,
applications, websites, and other password-protected
resources.
OmniPass presents a convenient graphical user interface,
through which you can securely manage passwords,
users, and multiple identities for each user.
GETTING STARTED
This section guides you through the preparation of your
system for the OmniPass fingerprint recognition
application. You will be led through the OmniPass
installation process. You will also be led through the
procedure of enrolling your first user into OmniPass.
Windows XP Home Edition, Windows XP Professional
or Windows 2000 operating system
At least 35 MB available hard disk space
Installing the OmniPass Application
If OmniPass is already installed on your system, go to
“User Enrollment” on page 108. Otherwise continue
with this section on software installation.
For installation, OmniPass requires that the
user installing OmniPass have
administrative privileges to the system. If
your current user does not have
administrative privileges, log out and then
log in as an administrator before
proceeding with OmniPass installation.
To install OmniPass on your system you must:
1. Insert the installation media for the OmniPass application into the appropriate drive. If you are installing
from CD-ROM or DVD-ROM, you must find and
launch the OmniPass installation program
(setup.exe) from the media.
2. Follow the directions provided in the OmniPass
installation program. Specify a location to which you
would like OmniPass installed. It is recommended
that you NOT install OmniPass in the root directory
(e.g. C:\).
3. Once OmniPass has completed installation you will
be prompted to restart you system. Once your system
has rebooted you will be able to use OmniPass. If you
choose not to restart immediately after installation,
OmniPass will not be available for use until the next
reboot.
The installation program automatically places an icon
(Softex OmniPass) in the Windows Control Panel as well
as a golden key shaped icon in the taskbar.

4. Follow the directions to uninstall the OmniPass
application.
5. Once OmniPass has finished uninstalling, reboot
your system when prompted.
USER ENROLLMENT
Before you can use any OmniPass features you must first
enroll a user into OmniPass.
Master Password Concept
Computer resources are often protected with passwords.
Whether you are logging into your computer, accessing
your email, e-banking, paying bills online, or accessing
network resources, you often have to supply credentials
108
to gain access. This can result in dozens of sets of credentials that you have to remember.
During OmniPass user enrollment a "master password”
is created for the enrolled user. This master password
“replaces” all other passwords for sites you register with
OmniPass.
Example: A user, John, installs OmniPass on his system
(his home computer) and enrolls an OmniPass user with
username “John_01” and password “freq14”. He then
goes to his webmail site to log onto his account. He
inputs his webmail credentials as usual (username
“John_02” and password “tablet”), but instead of
clicking [Submit], he directs OmniPass to Remember
Password. Now whenever he returns to that site,
OmniPass will prompt him to supply access credentials.
John enters his OmniPass user credentials (“John_01”
and “freq14”) in the OmniPass authentication prompt,
and he is allowed into his webmail account. He can do
this with as many websites or password protected
resources he likes, and he will gain access to all those
sites with his OmniPass user credentials (“John_01” and
“freq14”). This is assuming he is accessing those sites
with the system onto which he enrolled his OmniPass
user. OmniPass does not actually change the credentials
of the password protected resource. If John were to go to
an Internet cafe to access his webmail, he would need to
enter his original webmail credentials (“John_02” and
“tablet”) to gain access. If he attempts his OmniPass user
credentials on a system other than where he enrolled
that OmniPass user, he will not gain access.
The basic enrollment procedure assumes
you have no hardware authentication
devices or alternate storage locations that
you wish to integrate with OmniPass. If
you desire such functionality, consult the
appropriate sections after reviewing this
section.
Basic Enrollment
The Enrollment Wizard will guide you through the
process of enrolling a user. Unless you specified otherwise, after OmniPass installation the Enrollment Wizard
will launch on Windows login. If you do not see the
Enrollment Wizard, you can bring it up by clicking Start
on the Windows taskbar; select All Programs; select
Softex; click OmniPass Enrollment Wizard.
1. Click Enroll to proceed to username and password
verification. By default, the OmniPass Enrollment
Wizard enters the credentials of the currently logged
in Windows user.
2. Enter the password you use to log in to Windows.
This will become the “master password” for this
OmniPass user. In most cases, the Domain: value
B Series.book Page 109 Friday, May 19, 2006 3:00 PM
S e c u r i t y D e v i c e U s e r ’s G u i d e
will be your Windows computer name. In a corporate environment, or when accessing corporate
resources, the Domain: may not be your Windows
computer name. Click Next to continue.
3. In this step OmniPass captures your fingerprint.
Refer to “Enrolling a Fingerprint” on page 109 for
additional information.
4. Next, choose how OmniPass notifies you of various
events. We recommend you keep Taskbar Tips on
Beginner mode taskbar tips and Audio Tips on at
least Prompt with system beeps only until you get
accustomed to how OmniPass operates. Click Next to
proceed with user enrollment. You will then see a
Congratulations screen indicating your completion
of user enrollment.
5. Click Done to exit the OmniPass Enrollment Wizard.
You will be asked if you’d like to log in to OmniPass
with your newly enrolled user; click Yes.
Enrolling a Fingerprint
Enrolling a fingerprint will increase the security of your
system and streamline the authentication procedure.
You enroll fingerprints in the OmniPass Control Center.
With an OmniPass user logged in, double-click the
system tray OmniPass icon. Select the User Settings tab
and click Enrollment under the User Settings area. Click
Enroll Authentication Device and authenticate at the
authentication prompt to start device enrollment.
1. During initial user enrollment, you will be prompted
to select the finger you wish to enroll. Fingers that
have already been enrolled will be marked by a green
check. The finger you select to enroll at this time will
be marked by a red arrow. OmniPass allows you to
re-enroll a finger. If you choose a finger that has
already been enrolled and continue enrollment,
OmniPass will enroll the fingerprint, overwriting the
old fingerprint. Select a finger to enroll and click
Next.
2. It is now time for OmniPass to capture your selected
fingerprint. It may take a several capture attempts
before OmniPass acquires your fingerprint. Should
OmniPass fail to acquire your fingerprint, or if the
capture screen times out, click Back to restart the
fingerprint enrollment process.
Your system has a “swipe” fingerprint sensor. A swipe
sensor is small and resembles a skinny elongated rectangle. To capture a fingerprint, gently swipe or pull
your fingertip over the sensor (starting at the second
knuckle) in the direction of the arrow. Swiping too
fast or too slow will result in a failed capture. The
Choose Finger screen has a Practice button; click it to
practice capturing your fingerprint. When you are
comfortable with how your fingerprint is captured,
proceed to enroll a finger.
3. Once OmniPass has successfully acquired the fingerprint, the Verify Fingerprint screen will automatically appear. To verify your enrolled fingerprint, place
your fingertip on the sensor and hold it there as if
you were having a fingerprint captured. Successful
fingerprint verification will show a green fingerprint
in the capture window and the text Verification
Successful under the capture window.
USING OMNIPASS
You are now ready to begin using OmniPass. Used regularly, OmniPass will streamline your authentication
procedures.
Password Replacement
You will often use the password replacement function.
When you go to a restricted access website (e.g., your
bank, your web-based email, online auction or payment
sites), you are always prompted to enter your login
credentials. OmniPass can detect these prompts and you
can teach OmniPass your login credentials. The next time
you go to that website, you can authenticate with your
fingerprint to gain access.
OmniPass Authentication Toolbar
After installing OmniPass and restarting, you will notice
a dialog you have not seen before at Windows Logon.
This is the OmniPass Authentication Toolbar, and it is
displayed whenever the OmniPass authentication system
is invoked. The OmniPass authentication system may be
invoked frequently: during Windows Logon, during
OmniPass Logon, when unlocking your workstation,
when resuming from standby or hibernate, when
unlocking a password-enabled screensaver, during password replacement for remembered site or application
logins, and more. When you see this toolbar, OmniPass is
prompting you to authenticate.
The Logon Authentication window indicates what
OmniPass-restricted function you are attempting. The
icons in the lower left (fingerprint and key) show what
authentication methods are available to you. Selected
authentication methods are highlighted while unselected
methods are not. When you click the icon for an unselected authentication method, the authentication prompt
associated with that method is displayed.
When prompted to authenticate, you must supply the
appropriate credentials: an enrolled finger for the fingerprint capture window or your master password for the
master password prompt (the key icon).
Remembering a Password
OmniPass can remember any application, GUI, or password protected resource that has a password prompt.
Using the following procedure, you can store a set of
credentials into OmniPass. These credentials will then be
linked to your “master password” or fingerprint.
109
B Series.book Page 110 Friday, May 19, 2006 3:00 PM
LifeBook B6200 Series – Appendix B
Go to a site that requires a login (username and password), but do not log in yet. At the site login prompt,
enter your username and password in the prompted
fields, but do not enter the site (do not hit [Enter],
Submit, OK, or Login). Right-click the OmniPass
system tray icon and select Remember Password from
the submenu. The Windows arrow cursor will change to
a golden key OmniPass cursor. Click this OmniPass
cursor in the login prompt area, but do not click the
Login or Submit button.
Associating a Friendly Name
After clicking the OmniPass key cursor near the login
prompt, OmniPass will prompt you to enter a “friendly
name” for this site. You should enter something that
reminds you of the website, the company, or the service
you are logging into. In its secure database, OmniPass
associates this friendly name with this website.
Additional Settings for Remembering a Site
When OmniPass prompts you to enter a “friendly name”
you also have the opportunity to set how OmniPass
authenticates you to this site. There are three effective
settings for how OmniPass handles a remembered site.
The default setting is Automatically click the “OK” or
“Submit” button for this password protected site once
the user is authenticated. With this setting, each time
you navigate to this site OmniPass will prompt you for
your master password or fingerprint authentication
device. Once you have authenticated with OmniPass,
you will automatically be logged into the site.
Less secure is the option to Automatically enter this
password protected site when it is activated. Do not
prompt for authentication. Check the upper box to get
this setting, and each time you navigate to this site
OmniPass will log you into the site without prompting
you to authenticate.
This setting is more convenient in that
whenever you go to a site remembered
with this setting, you will bypass any
authentication procedure and gain instant
access to the site. But should you leave
your system unattended with your
OmniPass user logged in, anyone using
your system can browse to your password
protected sites and gain automatic access.
If you uncheck both boxes in Settings for this Password
Site, OmniPass will prompt you for your master password or fingerprint authentication device. Once you
have authenticated with OmniPass your credentials will
be filled in to the site login prompt, but you will have to
click the website OK, Submit, or Login button to gain
access to the site.
110
Click Finish to complete the remember password procedure. The site location, the credentials to access the site,
and the OmniPass authentication settings for the site are
now stored in the OmniPass secure database. The
OmniPass authentication settings (Settings for this Password Site) can always be changed in Vault Management.
Logging in to a Remembered Site
Whether or not OmniPass prompts you to authenticate
when you return to a remembered site is determined by
Settings for this Password Site and can be changed in
Vault Management.
The following cases are applicable to using OmniPass to
login to: Windows, remembered websites, and all other
password protected resources.
With Master Password
Once you return to a site you have remembered with
OmniPass, you may be presented with a master password prompt. Enter your master password and you will
be allowed into the site.
Logging into Windows with a Fingerprint Device
When logging into Windows with a fingerprint device,
the fingerprint capture window will now appear next to
the Windows Login screen. Place your enrolled fingertip
on the sensor to authenticate. You will be simultaneously
logged into Windows and OmniPass. The capture
window will also appear if you have used [WinKey + L]
to lock a system, and the fingerprint device can be used
to log back in as stated above.
If a machine is locked and OmniPass
detects a different user logging back in
with a fingerprint, the first user will be
logged out and the second user logged in.
In Windows XP, your login options must be set either for
classic login, or for fast user switching and logon screen
to be enabled to use your fingerprint to log on to
Windows. To change this go to Control Panel, select
User Accounts and then click Change the way users log
on or off. If your Windows screensaver is password
protected, the fingerprint capture window will now
appear next to screensaver password dialog during
resume. You can authenticate to your screensaver password prompt with your enrolled finger.
Password Management
OmniPass provides an interface that lets you manage
your passwords. To access this GUI, double-click the
OmniPass key in the system tray. Click Vault Management; you will be prompted to authenticate. Once you
gain access to Vault Management, click Manage Passwords under Vault Settings. You will see the Manage
Passwords interface, with a list of friendly names.
B Series.book Page 111 Friday, May 19, 2006 3:00 PM
S e c u r i t y D e v i c e U s e r ’s G u i d e
You can view the credentials stored for any remembered
website by highlighting the desired resource under Password Protected Dialog and clicking Unmask Values.
Should a password be reset, or an account expire, you
can remove stored credentials from OmniPass. Highlight
the desired resource under Password Protected Dialog
and click Delete Page. You will be prompted to confirm
the password deletion.
The two check boxes in Manage Passwords govern
whether OmniPass prompts you to authenticate or
directly logs you into the remembered site.
OmniPass will overwrite an old set of credentials for a
website if you attempt to use Remember Password on an
already remembered site.
The exception to the above rule is the resetting of your
Windows password. If your password is reset in
Windows, then the next time you login to Windows,
OmniPass will detect the password change and prompt
you to “Update” or “Reconfirm” your password with
OmniPass. Enter your new Windows password in the
prompt(s) and click OK and your OmniPass "master
password" will still be your Windows password.
OmniPass User Identities
Identities allow OmniPass users to have multiple
accounts to the same site (e.g., bob@biblomail.com and
boballen@biblomail.com). If OmniPass did not provide
you identities, you would be limited to remembering
one account per site.
To create and manage identities, double-click the
OmniPass key in the system tray. Click Vault Management; OmniPass will prompt you to authenticate. Once
you gain access to Vault Management, click Manage
Identities under Vault Settings. You can only manage
the identities of the currently logged in OmniPass user
To add a new identity, click New Identity or double-click
Click here to add a new identity. Name the new identity
and click OK, then click Apply. You can now switch to
the new identity and start remembering passwords.
OmniPass user. You can choose the identity with which
you are logging in if you login using "master password".
Choosing User Identity during Login
To choose your identity during login, type your username in the User Name: field. Press [Tab] and see that
the Domain: field self-populates. Click the Password:
field to bring the cursor to it, and you will see the pulldown menu in the Identity: field. Select the identity you
wish to login as and then click OK to login.
Switch User Identity
To switch identities at any time, right-click the
OmniPass system tray icon and click Switch User Identity from the submenu. The Switch Identity dialog will
appear. Select the desired identity and then click OK.
Identities and Password Management
On the Manage Passwords interface of the Vault
Management tab of the OmniPass Control Center, there
is a pull-down selection box labeled, Identity. This field
lets you choose which identity you are managing passwords for. When you select an identity here, only those
password protected dialogs that are associated with that
identity are shown. You can perform all the functions
explained in “Password Management” on page 110.
CONFIGURING OMNIPASS
This section gives an overview of both the Export/
Import function and the OmniPass Control Center.
Exporting and Importing Users
Using the OmniPass Control Center, you can export and
import users in and out of OmniPass. The export
process backs up all remembered sites, credentials, and
any enrolled fingerprints for an OmniPass user. All
OmniPass data for a user is backed up to a single
encrypted database file. During the import process, the
Windows login of the exported user is required. If the
proper credentials cannot be supplied, the user profile
will not be imported.
■
To delete an identity, highlight the identity you want to
delete and click Delete Identity, then click Apply.
When you delete an identity, all of its
associated remembered sites and password
protected dialogs are lost.
To set the default identity, highlight the identity you
want as default and click [Set as Default]; click [Apply]
to ensure the settings are saved. If you log in to
OmniPass with a fingerprint device, you will automatically be logged in to the default identity for that
■
You should periodically export your user
profile and store it in a safe place. If
anything happens to your system, you
can import your OmniPass profile to a
new system and have all your remembered settings and fingerprints instantly.
When you examine the importation, you
are prompted for authentication. The
credentials that will allow a user profile
to be imported are the Windows login
credentials of the exported user. They
are the credentials that had to be
submitted when the user profile was
exported. You will need User Name,
Password, and Domain.
111
B Series.book Page 112 Friday, May 19, 2006 3:00 PM
LifeBook B6200 Series – Appendix B
Exporting an OmniPass User Profile
To export a user, open the OmniPass Control Center,
select User Management tab, and click Import/Export
User under Manage Users.
Click Exports an OmniPass user profile. OmniPass will
prompt you to authenticate. Upon successfully authentication, you must name the OmniPass user profile and
decide where to save it. An .opi file is generated, and you
should store a copy of it in a safe place.
This .opi file contains all your user specific OmniPass
data, and it is both encrypted and password protected.
This user profile does NOT contain any of your
encrypted data files.
Importing an OmniPass User Profile
You cannot import a user into OmniPass if
there already is a user with the same name
enrolled in OmniPass.
To import an OmniPass user open the OmniPass
Control Center, and click Import/Export User under
Manage Users. Click Imports a new user into OmniPass
and then select OmniPass Import/Export File (*.opi)
and click Next. OmniPass will then prompt you to
browse for the file you had previously exported (.opi
file). When you select the .opi file for importation,
OmniPass will prompt you for authentication. The
credentials that will allow a user profile to be imported
are the Windows login credentials of the exported user.
They are the credentials that had to be submitted when
the user profile was exported. You will need User Name,
Password, and Domain. If you don’t remember the value
for Domain, in a PC or SOHO environment Domain
should be your computer name.
OmniPass will notify you if the user was successfully
imported.
Things to Know Regarding Import/Export
Assume you export a local Windows User profile from
OmniPass. You want to import that profile to another
machine that has OmniPass. Before you can import
the profile, a Windows user with the same login credentials must be created on the machine importing the
profile.
■
Example: I have a Windows user with the username
“Tom” and the password “Sunshine” on my system. I
have enrolled Tom into OmniPass and remembered
passwords. I want to take all my passwords to new system. I export Tom’s OmniPass user profile. I go to my
new system and using the Control Panel I create a user
with the username "Tom" and the password "Sun-
112
shine". I can now successfully import the OmniPass
user data to the new system.
■
If you export an OmniPass-only user, you can import
that user to any computer running OmniPass, provided that a user with that name is not already
enrolled in OmniPass.
■
If you attempt to import a user profile who has the
same name as a user already enrolled in OmniPass, the
OmniPass import function will fail.
OMNIPASS CONTROL CENTER
This section will serve to explain functions within the
OmniPass Control Center that weren’t explained earlier.
You can access the OmniPass Control Center any of
three ways:
■
Double-click the golden OmniPass key shaped icon in
the Windows taskbar (typically in the lower-right corner of the desktop)
■
Click the Start button; select the Programs group;
select the Softex program group; and click the
OmniPass Control Center selection.
■
Open the Windows Control Panel (accessible via Start
button --> Settings --> Control Panel) and doubleclick the Softex OmniPass icon.
User Management
The User Management tab has two major interfaces:
Add/Remove User and Import/Export User. Import/
Export User functionality is documented in “Exporting
and Importing Users” on page 111. Add/Remove User
functionality is straightforward.
If you click Adds a new user to OmniPass you will start
the OmniPass Enrollment Wizard. The Enrollment
Wizard is documented in “User Enrollment” on
page 108.
If you click Removes a user from OmniPass, OmniPass
will prompt you to authenticate. Authenticate with the
credentials (or enrolled fingerprint) of the user you wish
to remove. OmniPass will prompt you to confirm user
removal. Click OK to complete user removal.
Removing a user will automatically destroy
all OmniPass data associated with that
user. All identities and credentials
associated with the user will be lost. If you
are sure about removing the user, we
recommend you export the user profile.
User Settings
The User Settings tab has four interfaces: Audio, Taskbar
Tips, and Enrollment. User settings allow users to
customize OmniPass to suit their individual preferences.
B Series.book Page 113 Friday, May 19, 2006 3:00 PM
S e c u r i t y D e v i c e U s e r ’s G u i d e
Under User Settings (Audio and Taskbar Tips) you can
set how OmniPass notifies the user of OmniPass events
(e.g., successful login, access denied, etc.). The details of
each setting under the Audio and Taskbar Tips interfaces are self-explanatory.
The Enrollment interface allows you to enroll fingerprints. To enroll additional fingerprints, click Enroll
Authentication Device, and authenticate with
OmniPass. Select the fingerprint recognition device in
the Select Authentication Device screen (it should
already be marked by a green check if you have a finger
enrolled) and click Next.
System Settings
The OmniPass Startup Options interface can be found
in the System Settings tab. With these options you can
specify how your OmniPass Logon is tied to your
Windows Logon.
The first option, Automatically log on to OmniPass as
the current user, will do just as it says; during Windows
login, you will be logged on to OmniPass using your
Windows login credentials. If the user logging into
Windows was never enrolled into OmniPass, upon login
no one will be logged on to OmniPass. This setting is
appropriate for an office setting or any setting where
users must enter a username and password to log into a
computer. This is the default setting.
With the second option, Manually log on to OmniPass
at startup, OmniPass will prompt you to login once you
have logged on to Windows.
With the third option, Do not log on to OmniPass at
startup, OmniPass will not prompt for a user to be
logged on.
You can manually log on to OmniPass by right-clicking
the OmniPass taskbar icon and clicking Log in User
from the right-click menu.
TROUBLESHOOTING
You cannot use OmniPass to create Windows users. You
must first create the Windows user, and you will need
administrative privileges to do that. Once the Windows
user is created, you can add that user to OmniPass using
the same username and password
Cannot add Windows users to OmniPass
If you experience difficulties adding a Windows user
to OmniPass, you may need to adjust your local security settings. You can do this by going to Start,
Settings, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, and
Local Security Settings. Expand Local Policies,
expand Security Options, and double-click Network
Access: Sharing and Security Model for Local
Accounts. The correct setting should be Classic Local Users Authenticate as Themselves.
Cannot add a User with a Blank Password to OmniPass
If you experience difficulties adding a user with a
blank password to OmniPass, you may need to adjust
your local security settings. First attempt the procedure explained in the Cannot add Windows user to
OmniPass section. If the difficulties persist, then try
the following procedure.
Click Start, Settings, Control Panel, Administrative
Tools, and Local Security Settings. Expand Local
Policies, expand Security Options, and double-click
Accounts: Limit local account use of blank passwords to console login only. This setting should be
set to Disabled.
Dialog appears after OmniPass authentication during
Windows Logon
After installing OmniPass on your system, you can
choose to logon to Windows using OmniPass. You
authenticate with OmniPass (via master password, or
an enrolled security device) and OmniPass logs you
into Windows. You may, during this OmniPass
authentication, see a Login Error dialog box.
This dialog box occurs when OmniPass was unable to
log you into Windows with the credentials supplied
(username and password). This could happen for any
of the following reasons:
■
■
Your Windows password has changed
Your Windows account has been disabled
If you are having difficulties due to the first reason,
you will need to update OmniPass with your changed
Windows account password. Click Update Password
and you will be prompted with a dialog to reconfirm
your password.
Enter the new password to your Windows user
account and click OK. If the error persists, then it is
unlikely the problem is due to your Windows user
account password changing.

Trusted Platform Module Installation
This disc contains several utilities that allow you to
enhance the security of your system using the Trusted
Platform Module (TPM) contained in the system. TPM
is a Trusted Computer Group (TCG)-compliant embedded security chip that allows computers to run applications more securely and to make transactions and
communications more trustworthy. TPM is an important component of the Fujitsu Security Platform.
• The use of this disc requires that you
have a device capable of reading CDs
attached to your system. If you do not
have a built-in CD or DVD player, you
will need to attach an external player.
• The use of this disc also requires a
device capable of writing to removable
media (such as a floppy disk drive, CDRW drive, or PCMCIA memory card).
This drive will be used to store the
Emergency Recovery Token file and -- if
desired -- the Emergency Recovery
Archive file. For more information on
available external devices, visit our
Website at: us.fujitsu.com/computers.

5.
When installing the software, be sure to
create Emergency Recovery Archive and
Emergency Recovery Token files when
prompted by the Security Platform
Initialization Wizard. These files will be
necessary in the event of hardware failure.
Failure to create these files could result in
a loss of the Security Platform owner key,
which is the physical root for secrets as
well as the logical root for all Security
Platform user-specific keys. The
Initialization Wizard provides step-by-step
instructions for creating the files.
Procedure
Be sure you have a built-in or external drive attached to
your system that can read CDs. You will also need a
means to write to removable media during the installation.
Enabling the Security Chip in BIOS
1. Before installing the TPM software, you will need to
enable the security chip in the system BIOS. To do
so:
• If your system is running, click Start -> Shut
Down, and select Restart. Click OK.
• If the system is not running, power it up.
2. When the Fujitsu logo appears, press the [F2] button. The BIOS Setup Utility will appear.
114
Open the Security menu, scroll down to Set Supervisor Password, and enter a password (if not
already set).
While in the Security menu, scroll down to Security Chip Setting, and click on it. The Security Chip
Setting submenu will appear.
Press the [Space Bar] to Enable the Security Chip.
Click [F10] to save changes and exit.
