Functions
Exchanging Business Cards
The Exchange Business Cards menu option involves trading vCards between two devices. First,
the local device's default vCard is sent over to the selected remote device's inbox. After your
default vCard has been successfully transmitted, then the remote device's default vCard is
transferred into your inbox.
If either side does not have a default vCard present in the set location, then the exchange will fail.
NOTE: The default vcard's name and location is set under the menu item Tools, Options, Send
Options.
When Blue Manager is first installed, the default vcard name and location is
root:\btinbox\username.vcf (for example: c:\btinbox\joec.vcf ). However, a default vCard is
NOT created for you, and so the Exchange Business Cards option WILL FAIL until you change
the default to a vCard that exists or until you create a vCard with the default name and location.
How To Exchange Business Cards:
1.
2.
Select a device with which you would like to exchange vCards.

Complete Security is used, then users at both the local device and the remote device will be asked
for Passkeys (an agreed-upon sequence of letters and numbers) each time the two devices would
like to communicate. If the remote device is Trusted, then the users will not need to enter
Passkeys after the bonds are established whenever the devices are communicating (sending files,
browsing folders, and so forth). NOTE: Both devices must trust each other. Otherwise, if one
of them has the Complete Security option set, then the Passkey Requests will appear.
If a device is trusted, then a check mark will show beside the Trust Device menu item whenever
the right-click menu is used on the trusted device. In addition, under the status column of the List
View when it is showing details, the status of a trusted device will include the word trusted in
parentheses after the status. For example: In Range (Trusted). The status will also appear under
the Properties… of the device (right-click on the device). The trusted device will appear in the
Trusted Devices folder AFTER a Refresh operation is done.
How To Trust A Device
1. Select the Trust Device menu option from any of these locations:
· Right-click on the device in the Tree View and select Trust Device.
· Right-click on the device in the List View and select Trust Device.
2. Enter a Passkey that matches the Passkey of the remote device.

list. If a device is trusted, deleting the device WILL NOT remove its trusted status. If both
devices have trusted each other, the remote device will STILL be able to connect to your device
without getting a Passkey request.
