Fujitsu is very concerned with environmental protection, and has enlisted the services of the Rechargeable Battery
Recycling Corporation (RBRC)**, a non-profit public service organization dedicated to protecting our environment
by recycling old batteries at no cost to you.
Over time, the batteries that run your mobile computer will begin to hold a charge for a shorter amount of time; this is a natural
occurrence for all batteries. When this occurs, you may want to replace the battery with a fresh one*. If you replace it, it is important
that you dispose of the old battery properly because batteries contain materials that could cause environmental damage if disposed of
improperly.

characters and as numeric and mathematical keys. The ability to toggle between the standard
character and numerical keys is controlled through the [NumLk] key.
Using the Keyboard
Your Fujitsu LifeBook notebook has an integral 84-key keyboard. The keys perform all the standard
functions of a 101-key keyboard, including the Windows keys and other special function keys. This
section describes the following keys.
Keyboard
28 - Keyboard
The cursor keys are the four arrow keys on the keyboard which allow you to move the cursor up, down,
left and right in applications. In programs such as Windows Explorer, it moves the “focus” (selects the
next item up, down, left, or right).
Cursor Keys
Your LifeBook notebook has two Windows keys, consisting of a Start key and an Application key. The
Start key displays the Start menu. This button functions the same as your onscreen Start menu button. The
Application key functions the same as your right mouse button and displays shortcut menus for the

Windows keys.)
Windows Keys
Certain keys on the keyboard perform dual functions as both standard character keys and numeric keypad
keys. NumLk can be activated by pressing the [NumLk] keys. Turning off the NumLk feature is done the
same way. Once this feature is activated you can enter numerals 0 through 9, perform addition ( + ),
subtraction ( - ), multiplication ( * ), or division ( / ), and enter decimal points ( . ) using the keys designated
as ten-key function keys. The keys in the numeric keypad are marked on the front edge of the key to
indicate their secondary functions.

for each application. You should refer to your software documentation to find out how these keys are used.
Function Keys
30 - Touchpad Pointing Device
Note that the fingerprint recognition sensor
x also functions as a scroll sensor. After logging in, moving your
finger up and down the sensor will act the same as a scroll button. To learn how to use the fingerprint
sensor, see “Appendix B: Fingerprint Sensor Device” on page 176.
The Touchpad pointing device comes built into your Fujitsu LifeBook notebook. It is used to control the
movement of the pointer to select items on your display panel. The Touchpad is composed of a cursor
control, a left button, a right button, and a scroll/fingerprint sensor. The cursor control works the same way
a mouse does, and moves the cursor around the display. It only requires light pressure with the tip of your
finger. The left and right buttons function the same as mouse buttons. The actual functionality of the
buttons may vary depending on the application that is being used.

Individual LifeBook 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:
After entering the button strokes, push this button to enter the password into the LifeBook notebook.

60 - Power Management
If your notebook is suspended, pushing the Power/Suspend/Resume button returns your notebook to
active operation. You can tell whether the system is Suspended by looking at the Power indicator. If the
indicator is visible and not flashing, your notebook is fully operational. If the indicator is visible and
flashing, your notebook is in Standby mode. If the indicator is not visible, the power is off or your
notebook is in Hibernation mode. (See Hibernation Feature)
Power/Suspend/Resume Button
When your notebook is active, the Power/Suspend/Resume button can be used to manually put the
notebook into Standby (Sleep) mode. Push the Power/Suspend/Resume button when the notebook is
active, but not actively accessing anything, and immediately release the button.
Besides the options available for conserving battery power, there are also some things that you can do to
prevent your battery from running down as quickly. For example, you can create an appropriate power
saving profile, put your notebook into Standby (Sleep) 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.
PLEASE NOTE THAT “STANDBY MODE” IN WINDOWS XP IS KNOWN AS “SLEEP MODE” IN WINDOWS
VISTA. THE TWO TERMS ARE INTERCHANGEABLE. FOR PURPOSES OF THIS DOCUMENT, “STANDBY
MODE” WILL BE USED.
Your Fujitsu 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 Management
IF RUNNING YOUR NOTEBOOK ON BATTERY POWER, BE AWARE THAT THE BATTERY CONTINUES TO DISCHARGE
STANDBY MODE, THOUGH NOT AS FAST AS WHEN FULLY OPERATIONAL.
DISABLING THE POWER/SUSPEND/RESUME BUTTON PREVENTS IT FROM BEING USED TO PUT THE NOTEBOOK INTO
STANDBY OR HIBERNATION (SAVE-TO-DISK) MODE. THE BUTTON RESUME FUNCTION CAN’T BE DISABLED.
THE STANDBY OR HIBERNATION (SAVE-TO-DISK) MODE SHOULD NOT BE USED WITH CERTAIN PC CARDS. CHECK
PC CARD DOCUMENTATION FOR MORE INFORMATION. WHEN PC CARDS OR EXTERNAL DEVICES ARE IN
USE, HIBERNATION (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.
IF YOUR NOTEBOOK IS ACTIVELY ACCESSING INFORMATION WHEN YOU ENTER THE STANDBY OR HIBERNATION
(SAVE-TO-DISK) 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 HIBERNATION MODE.
■
■
■
61 - Power Management
THE MAIN ADVANTAGE OF USING HIBERNATION (SAVE-TO-DISK) 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 HIBERNATION MODE IS THAT IT LENGTHENS THE
POWER DOWN AND POWER UP SEQUENCES AND RESETS PERIPHERAL DEVICES.

System memory typically stores the files on which you are working, open application information, and
any other data required to support operations in progress. When you resume operation from Standby, your

Your notebook can be put in Standby mode by:

OPERATION OF YOUR NOTEBOOK BY DRAINING ALL AVAILABLE CURRENT INTO THE BAD BATTERY.
• When using a high current device such as a modem, Multi-Format DVD Writer, CD-ROM drive,
DVD/CD-RW combo drive, or the hard drive, using the AC adapter will conserve your battery life.
• When used at temperatures that exceed a low of 5°C or a high of 35°C (41° to 95° F). 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

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.
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,

Secure Digital (SD) Cards are very similar to Memory Sticks. Like Memory Sticks, SD Cards allow
portable storage among a variety of devices, such as cell phones, GPS systems, digital cameras, and PDAs.
SD Cards transfer data quickly, with low battery consumption. Like the memory stick, it uses flash

Memory Stick is a flash memory technology that allows you to record, transfer and share digital content,
such as digital pictures, movies, music, voice, and computer data and applications.
Your LifeBook notebook supports Memory Sticks, Secure Digital (SD), and xD-Picture cards, on which

The number of unassigned Internet addresses is running out, so a new classless scheme called CIDR is
gradually replacing the system based on classes A, B, and C and is tied to adoption of IPv6.
Class C - supports 254 hosts on each of 2 million networks
Class B - supports 65,000 hosts on each of 16,000 networks
Class A - supports 16 million hosts on each of 126 networks
The four numbers in an IP address are used in different ways to identify a particular network and a host
on that network. Three regional Internet registries -- ARIN, RIPE NCC and APNIC -- assign Internet
addresses from the following three classes.
Within an isolated network, you can assign IP addresses at random as long as each one is unique. However,
connecting a private network to the Internet requires using registered IP addresses (called Internet
addresses) to avoid duplicates.

Standby
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.

Ad Hoc Mode Network
"Ad Hoc Mode" refers to a wireless network architecture where wireless network connectivity between
multiple computers is established without a central wireless network device, typically known as Access
Point(s). Connectivity is accomplished using only client devices in a peer-to-peer fashion. That is why Ad
Hoc networks are also known as peer-to-peer networks. Ad Hoc networks are an easy and inexpensive
method for establishing network connectivity between multiple computers. Ad Hoc mode requires that the
SSID, network authentication, and encryption key settings are identically configured on all computers in
the Ad Hoc network.

Wired LAN
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 WLAN in order to access services, devices, and
computers (e.g., file servers, printers, databases).
Access Point (Infrastructure) Mode
Wireless devices that transmit in the 2.4 GHz range may interfere with operation of WLAN devices in IEEE802.11b/g/n
modes. Symptoms of interference include reduced throughput, intermittent disconnects, and many frame errors. It is
HIGHLY recommended that these interfering devices be powered off to ensure proper operation of the WLAN device.
Microwave ovens may interfere with the operation of WLAN devices since they operate in the same 2.4 GHz frequency
range as IEEE802.11b/g/n devices. Interference by microwaves does not occur with IEEE802.11a radio which operates
in the 5 GHz RF band.
The WLAN device operates in the 2.4 GHz ISM band and the 5 GHz lower, middle, and upper UNII bands.
Intel WiFi Link 5300 device supports IEEE802.11a, IEEE802.11b, IEEE802.11g, and IEEE802.11n.

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.
OmniPass presents a convenient graphical user interface, through which you can securely manage
passwords, users, and multiple identities for each user.
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, web sites, and other password-protected resources.
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.
After you have “enrolled” - or registered - your fingerprint, you can simply swipe your fingertip over the
sensor for the system recognize you.
• Log into web sites that require a username and password
• Cancel a password-protected screen saver
• Resume from standby mode
• Log onto Windows
With a fingerprint sensor, you can avoid having to enter a username and password every time you want to:
OMNIPASS INSTALLATION.
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:\).
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.

180 - Introducing the Optional Fingerprint Sensor Device
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 web sites 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 another computer without he OmniPass account to access his webmail, he
would need to enter his original webmail credentials (“John_02” and “lifebook”) to gain access. If he
attempts his OmniPass user credentials on a system other than a system he’s enrolled on, he will not gain
access.
Example: A user, John, installs OmniPass on his system (his home computer) and enrolls an OmniPass
user with username “John_01” and password “freq14”. He then goes to his webmail site to log onto his
account. He inputs his webmail credentials as usual (username “John_02” and password “lifebook”), but
instead of clicking [Submit], he directs OmniPass to Remember Password. Now whenever he returns to
that site, OmniPass will prompt him to supply access credentials.
During user enrollment a "master password” is created for the enrolled user. This master password
“replaces” all other passwords for sites you register with OmniPass.
Computer resources are often protected with passwords. Whether you are logging into your computer,
accessing your email, e-banking, paying bills online, or accessing network resources, you often have to
supply credentials to gain access. This can result in dozens of sets of credentials that you have to
remember.
Master Password Concept
User Enrollment
Before you can use any OmniPass features you must first enroll a user into OmniPass.

Enter the password you use to log in to Windows. This will become the “master password” for this OmniPass
user. In most cases, the Domain: value will be your Windows computer name. In a corporate environment, or
when accessing corporate resources, the Domain: may not be your Windows computer name. Click [Next] to
continue.
In this step OmniPass captures your fingerprint. Refer to “Enrolling a Fingerprint” on page 182 for additional
information.
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.
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].

182 - Introducing the Optional Fingerprint Sensor Device
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.
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) towards yourself. Swiping too fast or too slow will result in a failed capture. The Choose Finger
screen has a [Practice] button; click it to practice capturing your fingerprint. When you are comfortable with how
your fingerprint is captured, proceed to enroll a finger.
1.During initial user enrollment, you will be prompted to select the finger you wish to enroll. Fingers that have
already been enrolled will be marked by a green check. The finger you select to enroll at this time will be marked
by a red arrow. OmniPass will allow you re-enroll a finger. If you choose a finger that has already been enrolled
and continue enrollment, OmniPass will enroll the fingerprint, overwriting the old fingerprint. Select a finger to
enroll and click [Next].

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.
Enrolling a fingerprint will increase the security of your system and streamline the authentication
procedure.
Enrolling a Fingerprint
183 - Introducing the Optional Fingerprint Sensor Device
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).
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.
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.
OmniPass Authentication Toolbar
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.
Password Replacement
Using OmniPass
You are now ready to begin using OmniPass. Used regularly, OmniPass will streamline your
authentications.
184 - Introducing the Optional Fingerprint Sensor Device
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.
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.
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.
Additional Settings for Remembering a Site
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.
Associating a Friendly Name
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 the
OmniPass cursor in the login prompt area, but don’t click [Login] or [Submit].
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.
OmniPass can remember any application, GUI, or password protected resource that has a password
prompt.
Remembering a Password
185 - Introducing the Optional Fingerprint Sensor Device
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.
With Master Password
The following cases are applicable to using OmniPass to login to: Windows, remembered web sites, and
all other password protected resources.
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.
Logging in to a Remembered Site
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.
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.

SITE. BUT SHOULD YOU LEAVE YOUR SYSTEM UNATTENDED WITH YOUR OMNIPASS USER LOGGED IN,
186 - Introducing the Optional Fingerprint Sensor Device
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.
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.
Password Management
In Windows XP, your login options must be set either for classic login, or for fast user switching and logon
screen to be enabled to use your fingerprint to log on to Windows. To change this go to Control Panel,
select User Accounts and then click Change the way users log on or off. If your Windows screensaver
is password protected, the fingerprint capture window will now appear next to screensaver password
dialog during resume. You can authenticate to your screensaver password prompt with your enrolled
finger.
IF 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.
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 Ctrl-Alt-Del to lock a system, and the fingerprint device can be used to log back in as stated above.
Logging into Windows with a Fingerprint Device
187 - Introducing the Optional Fingerprint Sensor Device
WHEN YOU DELETE AN IDENTITY, ALL OF ITS ASSOCIATED REMEMBERED SITES AND PASSWORD
PROTECTED DIALOGS ARE LOST.
To delete an identity, highlight the identity you want to delete and click [Delete Identity], then click
[Apply].
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.
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
Identities allow OmniPass users to have multiple accounts to the same site (e.g., [email protected] and
[email protected]). If OmniPass did not provide you identities, you would be limited to
remembering one account per site.
OmniPass User Identities
The exception to the above rule is when resetting the Windows password. If your password is reset in
Windows, the next time you login to Windows, OmniPass will detect the password change and prompt
you to “Update” or “Reconfirm” the password with OmniPass. Enter your new Windows password in the
prompt and click OK. Your OmniPass "master password" will still be your Windows password.
OmniPass will overwrite an old set of credentials for a website if you attempt to use Remember
Password on an already remembered site.
The two check boxes in Manage Passwords govern whether OmniPass prompts you to authenticate or
directly logs you into the remembered site.
188 - Introducing the Optional Fingerprint Sensor Device
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 186.
Identities and Password Management
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.
Switch User Identity
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 pull-down menu in the Identity: field. Select the identity to login as, then click OK.
Choosing User Identity during Login
To set the default identity, highlight the identity you want as default and click [Set as Default]; click
[Apply] to ensure the settings are saved. If you log in to OmniPass with a fingerprint device, you will
automatically be logged in to the default identity for that OmniPass user. You can choose the identity with
which you are logging in if you login using "master password".

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.
To export a user, open the OmniPass Control Center, and click Import/Export User under Manage
Users.
Exporting an OmniPass User Profile
•
•
Using OmniPass Control Center, you can export and import users in and out of OmniPass. The export
process backs up all remembered sites, credentials, and 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.
YOU CANNOT IMPORT A USER INTO OMNIPASS IF THERE ALREADY IS A USER WITH THE SAME NAME
ENROLLED IN OMNIPASS.
Exporting and Importing Users
Configuring OmniPass
This section gives an overview of both the Export/Import function and the OmniPass Control Center.
190 - Introducing the Optional Fingerprint Sensor Device
• 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.
• 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.
Example: I have a Windows user with the username “Tom” and the password “Sunshine” on my
system. I have enrolled Tom into OmniPass and remembered passwords. I want to take all my
passwords to new system. I export Tom’s OmniPass user profile. I go to my new system and using
the Control Panel I create a user with the username "Tom" and the password "Sunshine". I can now
successfully import the OmniPass user data to the new system.
• 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.
Things to Know Regarding Import/Export
OmniPass will notify you if the user was successfully imported.
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.
Importing an OmniPass User Profile
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.
191 - Introducing the Optional Fingerprint Sensor Device
IF YOU’RE SURE YOU WANT TO REMOVE THE USER, WE RECOMMEND YOU EXPORT THE USER PROFILE.
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 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.
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 180.
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 189.
Add/Remove User functionality is straightforward.
User Management
• Open the Windows Control Panel (accessible via Start button --> Settings --> Control Panel) and
double-click the Softex OmniPass icon.
• Click the Start button; select the Programs group; select the Softex program group; and click the
OmniPass Control Center selection.
• Double-click the golden OmniPass key shaped icon in the Windows taskbar (typically in the lowerright corner of the desktop)
You can access the OmniPass Control Center any of three ways:
OmniPass Control Center
This section will serve to explain functions within the OmniPass Control Center that weren’t explained
earlier.
192 - Introducing the Optional Fingerprint Sensor Device
You can manually log on to OmniPass by right-clicking the OmniPass taskbar icon and clicking Log in
User from the right-click menu.
With the third option, Do not log on to OmniPass at startup, OmniPass will not prompt for a user to be
logged on.
With the second option, Manually log on to OmniPass at startup, OmniPass will prompt you to login
once you have logged on to Windows.
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.
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.
System Settings
The Enrollment interface allows you to enroll fingerprints. For the procedure to enroll and authentication
device refer to Chapter 2.3. To enroll additional fingerprints, click Enroll Authentication Device, and
authenticate with OmniPass. Select the fingerprint recognition device in the Select Authentication
Device screen (it should already be marked by a green check if you have a finger enrolled) and click Next.
The User Settings tab has four interfaces: Audio Settings, Taskbar Tips, and Enrollment. User settings
allow users to customize OmniPass to suit their individual preferences. Under User Settings (Audio
Settings and Taskbar Tips) you can set how OmniPass notifies the user of OmniPass events (e.g.,
successful login, access denied, etc.). The details of each setting under the Audio Settings and Taskbar
Tips interfaces are self-explanatory.
User Settings
193 - Introducing the Optional Fingerprint Sensor Device
• Your Windows account has been disabled
• Your Windows password has changed
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:
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.
Dialog appears after OmniPass authentication during Windows Logon
Click Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, and Local Security Settings. Expand Local
Policies, expand Security Options, and double-click Accounts: Limit local account use of blank
passwords to console login only. This setting should be set to Disabled.
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.
Cannot add a User with a Blank Password to OmniPas
If you experience difficulties adding a Windows user to OmniPass, you may need to adjust your local
security settings. You can do this by going to Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, and Local
Security Settings. Expand Local Policies, expand Security Options, and double-click Network
Access: Sharing and Security Model for Local Accounts. The correct setting should be Classic Local Users Authenticate as Themselves.
Cannot add Windows users to OmniPass
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
194 - Introducing the Optional Fingerprint Sensor Device
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.
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.
