for all LifeBook notebooks in a working group, office, or
company to allow for system management. 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:
20
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
■
{[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 must set both the supervisor and user
passwords for the security panel to work.
Setting Supervisor Password
You must have set a supervisor password before setting
any user passwords. The supervisor password can bypass
the user password.

Low Battery Operations
If your LifeBook notebook has low battery, pushing the
Power/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:
■
From Off State
1. Turn on your system.
2. When the Security Indicator flashes, enter the password and press [Enter] button.
For example, if the password is 22222, press button
number [2] five times and press [Enter] button.
The notebook will boot to normal operation.
From Suspend State
1. Press your Power/Suspend/Resume button.
2. When the Security Indicator flashes, enter the password and press [Enter] button.
The notebook should resume normal operation.
Incorrect Password Entry
If an invalid supervisor or user password is entered three
times in succession, the system will “beep” for about one
minute. If a valid password is entered within a minute
(while system beeps), the beeping will stop and the notebook will resume normal operation. If no password (or
an invalid one) is entered while the system beeps, the
system will return to its previous locked state (suspend
or off) and the Security Indicator will go off. To reactivate the notebook after a password failure, you must
press the Power/Suspend/Resume button, then enter a
correct password.

Starting Your
LifeBook Notebook
POWER ON
Power/Suspend/Resume Button
The Power/Suspend/Resume button is used to turn on
your LifeBook notebook from its off state. Once you
have connected your AC adapter or charged the internal
Lithium ion battery, you can power on your LifeBook
notebook. (See figure 2-3 on page 6 for location)
When you turn on your LifeBook
notebook be sure you have a power
source. This means that at least one
battery is installed and charged, or that the
AC or Auto/Airline adapter is connected
and has power.
To turn on your LifeBook notebook from its off state,
press the Power/Suspend/Resume button, located above
the keyboard to the right. When you are done working
you can either leave your notebook in Suspend mode,
(See Suspend Mode on page 31 for more information), or
you can turn it off (See Power Off on page 32 for more
information).
Do not carry your LifeBook notebook
around with the power on or subject it to
shocks or vibration, as you risk damaging
your notebook.
When you power on your LifeBook, it will perform a
Power On Self Test (POST) to check the internal parts
and configuration for correct functionality. If a fault is
found, your LifeBook notebook will emit an audio
warning and/or an error message will be displayed. (See
Power On Self Test Messages on page 60 for more information) Depending on the nature of the problem, you may
be able to continue by starting the operating system or by
entering the BIOS setup utility and revising the settings.
After satisfactory completion of the POST, your notebook will load your operating system.
Never turn off your LifeBook notebook
during the Power On Self Test (POST) or it
will cause an error message to be displayed
when you turn your LifeBook notebook on
the next time. (See Power On Self Test
Messages on page 60 for more
information)
BOOT SEQUENCE
The procedure for starting-up your notebook is termed
the Bootup sequence and involves your notebook’s
BIOS. When your LifeBook notebook is first turned on,
the main system memory is empty, and it needs to find
instructions to start up your notebook. This information
is in the BIOS program. Each time you power up or
restart your notebook, it goes through a boot sequence
which displays a Fujitsu logo until your operating
system is loaded. During booting, your notebook is
performing a standard boot sequence including a Power
On Self Test (POST). When the boot sequence is
completed without a failure and without a request for
the BIOS Setup Utility, the system displays the operating
system’s opening screen.
The boot sequence is executed when:
■
■
■
■
You turn on the power to your LifeBook notebook.
You restart your notebook from the Windows
Shut Down dialog box.
The software initiates a system restart. Example:
When you install a new application.
You reset the system by pressing the three keys
[CTRL+ALT+DEL].
HARD DISK DRIVE PASSWORDS
To provide additional security for your data, you can
assign passwords to your hard disk drive(s). This feature
is managed in the system BIOS Setup Utility. See BIOS
Setup Utility below for information about accessing the
utility.
Remember your passwords. If you set and
forget your User and Master hard disk
passwords, Fujitsu Computer Systems will
not be able to reset it. You may lose data
and have to replace your system board or
hard disk drive.
BIOS SETUP UTILITY
The BIOS Setup Utility is a program that sets up the
operating environment for your LifeBook notebook.
Your BIOS is set at the factory for normal operating
conditions, therefore there is no need to set or change
the BIOS’ environment to operate your notebook.
The BIOS Setup Utility configures:
■
■
Device control feature parameters, such as changing
I/O addresses and boot devices.
System Data Security feature parameters, such as
passwords.

Getting Started
Power Management
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.
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 Suspend 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.
Your notebook’s system memory typically stores the file
on which you are working, open application information, and any other data required to support operations
in progress. When you resume operation from Suspend
mode, your notebook will return to the point where it left
off. You must use the Power/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 notebook on
battery power, be aware that the battery
continues to discharge while your notebook is in Suspend 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 Suspend or Hibernation (Save-to-Disk) mode. The button
resume function cannot be disabled.
■
The Suspend or Hibernation (Save-toDisk) mode should not be used with certain PC Cards. Check your 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 Suspend or Hibernation (Save-to-Disk)
mode, changes to open files are not lost.
The files are left open and memory is
kept active during Suspend mode or the
memory is transferred to the internal
hard drive during Hibernation mode.
POWER/SUSPEND/RESUME BUTTON
When your notebook is active, the Power/Suspend/
Resume button can be used to manually put the notebook into Suspend mode. Push the Power/Suspend/
Resume button when the notebook is active, but not
actively accessing anything, and immediately release the
button. You will hear two short beeps and the system
will enter Suspend mode.
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. (See Figure 2-3 on
page 6) If the indicator is visible and not flashing, your
notebook is fully operational. If the indicator is visible
and flashing, your notebook is in Suspend mode. If the
indicator is not visible, the power is off or your notebook
is in Hibernation mode. (See Hibernation Feature)
SUSPEND MODE
Suspend or Standby mode in Windows saves the
contents of your system memory during periods of
inactivity by maintaining power to critical parts. This
mode will turn off the CPU, display, hard drive, and all
the other internal components except those necessary to
maintain system memory and allow for restarting. Your
notebook can be put in Suspend mode by:
■
■
■
■
Pressing the Power/Suspend/Resume button when
your system is turned on.
Selecting Standby from the Windows Shut Down menu.
Timing out from lack of activity.
Allowing the battery to reach the Dead Battery
Warning condition.
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.
HIBERNATION (SAVE-TO-DISK) FEATURE
The Hibernation feature saves your system’s memory
contents to the hard drive as a part of the Suspend/
Resume mode. You can enable or disable this feature.
Enable or Disable the Hibernation Feature
The default setting is not enabled. To enable or disable
the Hibernation feature follow these easy steps:
1. From the Start menu, select Settings, and then select
Control Panel.
31

2. From the Control Panel select Power Options.
3. Select the Hibernation tab. Select the box to enable
or disable this feature.
Using the Hibernation Feature
1. From the Start menu, select Settings, and then select
Control Panel.
2. From the Control Panel select Power Options.
3. Select the Advanced tab. Select Hibernate from the
pull down menu for Power buttons.
DISPLAY TIMEOUT
The Video Timeout is one of the power management
parameters. 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 Power/Suspend/
Resume button and can be enabled and disabled in the
Windows Control Panel (Power Options).
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 Power/
Suspend/Resume button and can be enabled and
disabled in the Windows Control Panel (Power
Options).
WINDOWS POWER MANAGEMENT
Power Management
As noted above, the Power Options icon located in the
Windows Control Panel allows you to configure some
power management settings. For example, you can use
Power Options 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.
3. Click [OK] to restart your notebook. Your notebook
will shut down and then reboot.
Turning off your notebook without exiting
Windows, or turning it on within 10
seconds of being shut off may cause an
error when you start the next time.
POWER OFF
Before turning off the power, check that the hard drive,
optical drive, and PC Card indicators are all Off. (See
Figure 2-3 on page 6). If you power-off while accessing a
disk or PC Card there is a risk of data loss. To ensure
that the notebook shuts down without error, use the
Windows shutdown 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 the power
off, 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 within the
Windows Shut Down dialog box.
3. Click [OK] to shut down your notebook.

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 exceeds a low of 5°C
or a high of 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 Indicators on page 13 for more
information)
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.
Do not leave a faulty battery in your
LifeBook 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.
■
■
Actual battery life will vary based on
screen brightness, applications,
features, power management settings,
battery condition and other customer
preferences. CD-ROM drive, MultiFormat DVD Writer, DVD/CD-RW drive
combo, 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.
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 (1-800838-5487)
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 LifeBook 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 Suspend mode, or
turn it off while the adapter is charging the battery. (See
Power Management on page 31 for more information on
Suspend mode and shutdown procedure)
Using heavy current devices such as the
modem or frequent DVD/CD-RW/CDROM accesses may prevent charging
completely.
Low Battery State
When the battery is running low, a low battery notification message will appear. If you do not respond to the
low battery message, the batteries will continue to
discharge until they are too low to operate. When this
happens, your notebook will go into Suspend mode.
There is no guarantee that your data will be saved once
the notebook reaches this point.
■
Once the low battery notification message appears, you need to save all your
active data and put your LifeBook notebook into Suspend mode until you can
provide a new power source. You should
provide a charged battery, an AC power
adapter, or Auto/Airline adapter as soon
as possible.
■
When you are in Suspend mode there
must always be at least one power
source active. If you remove all power
sources while your LifeBook notebook is
in Suspend mode, any data that has not
been saved to the hard drive will be lost.

LifeBook E8000 Notebook
Dead Battery Suspend mode shows on the Status indicator just like the normal Suspend 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 Power/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.
Hot-swapping Batteries
To hot-swap batteries in your battery bay follow these
easy steps: (Figure 4-1)
Be sure to plug in an AC Adapter prior to
removing the battery. There is no bridge
battery present to support the system
while the battery is being replaced. If you
do not use an AC Adapter you will lose
any unsaved files.
1. Plug an AC Adapter into the system and connect it
to a power outlet.
Battery Bay
Release Latch
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 210 on page 12) If this display shows a Shorted Battery, it
means the battery is damaged and must be replaced so it
does not damage other parts of your LifeBook notebook.
REPLACING THE BATTERY
With the purchase of an additional battery, you can have
a fully charged spare to swap with one that is not
charged. There are two ways to swap batteries, coldswapping and hot-swapping:
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.
3. Orient the notebook with the battery closest to you
(Figure 4-1).
4. While pushing the battery bay release latch away
from the battery pack (Figure 4-1), slide the battery
bay lift latch to the left to reveal the bright orange
sticker.
5. While continuing to push the battery bay release
latch, slide a fingernail under the battery at the
orange label and lift the battery out of the bay.
6. Insert a new battery into the bay, and press it down
so that the latches click into place. Slide the lift latch
back to the right to cover the orange sticker.
7. Plug in the AC adapter and turn the power on.

the optical drive continuously (such as watching a DVD
movie) than during standard operation. Many movies
run-times are longer than your LifeBook notebook can
support on a single charged battery. If you are watching a
DVD movie on battery power you may need to swap in
an additional, charged battery or attach AC power during
the movie to view it in its entirety.
■
■
■
Prolonged use of the optical drive, such
as watching a DVD movie, will greatly
reduce your notebook’s battery life.
Many movie run-times are longer than
your system can support on a single
battery. If you are watching a DVD
movie on battery power you may need
to swap in an additional, charged
battery or attach AC power during the
movie to view it in its entirety.
An additional fully-charged battery is
highly recommended if you will be
watching DVD movies on battery
power. If you don’t have an additional
battery, you may purchase one either
online at:
http://www.computers.us.fujitsu.com
or by calling 1-877-372-3473.
To Watch a Movie on Battery Power:
1. Have an additional full-charged battery or your AC
adapter ready for use.
2. Start watching your DVD movie.
3. When the low battery warning occurs, immediately
stop the movie and exit the media player.
If you do not stop the media player quickly
and the LifeBook notebook attempts to
auto-suspend (critical battery low state)
the LifeBook notebook will shut down
improperly. If this occurs, you will need to
perform a hard reset and follow the
instruction, if any, presented to you before
the system will reboot.
4. Power down your LifeBook notebook and replace
the discharged battery with an additional fullycharged battery. If you do not have an additional
battery, you may attach AC power as soon as you see
the low battery warning.
5. Resume your LifeBook notebook by pressing the
Suspend button again. This is not required if you
attached AC power without entering suspend mode.
6. Restart your media player, locate and skip to the
chapter of the movie you were last watching.

Memory Upgrade Module
Your Fujitsu LifeBook notebook comes with a minimum
of 256 MB of high speed Double Data Rate Synchronous
Dynamic RAM (DDR2-667 SDRAM) factory installed. To
increase your notebook’s memory capacity, you may
install an additional memory upgrade module. The
memory upgrade must be a dual-in-line (DIMM)
SDRAM module. To ensure 100% compatibility,
purchase the SDRAM module only from the Fujitsu web
store at www.shopfujitsu.com.
■
■
Do not remove any screws from the

1. Boot up the system and insert the DAR CD after
Windows has started. A Fujitsu Installer screen is
displayed after the CD is inserted.
2. After reading the License Agreement, click [I agree].
3. A window will appear containing a list of applications, drivers, and utilities that you can install from
the Drivers and Applications CD.
The components listed are color-coded in
terms of their install status. Blue indicates
that the component can be installed. Green
indicates that the component needs to be
installed separately. Grey indicates a
component that is already installed; grey
items can be reinstalled, but prior to
installation you will receive a reminder that
the component is already installed.
4. In the list, check off all the components you want to
install. If you want to install all components, click
[Select All]. Clicking [Select All] will select all of the
blue-coded components; you must select grey and

IP Address
An identifier for a computer or device on a TCP/IP
network. Networks using the TCP/IP protocol route
messages based on the IP address of the destination. The
format of an IP address is a 32-bit numeric address
written as four numbers separated by periods. Each
number can be zero to 255. For example, 1.160.10.240
could be an IP address.
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.
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.
Class A - supports 16 million hosts on each of 126
networks
Class B - supports 65,000 hosts on each of 16,000
networks
Class C - supports 254 hosts on each of 2 million
networks
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. (credit: webopedia.com)
IR

LPT Port
Line Printer Port. A way of referring to parallel interface
ports because historically line printers were the first and
latter the most common device connected to parallel
ports.
MAC Address
Media Access Control Address
A unique physical address of a network card. For
Ethernet, the first three bytes are used as the vendor
code, controlled and assigned by IEEE. The remaining
three bytes are controlled by each vendor (preventing
overlap), therefore, every Ethernet card is given a unique
physical address in the world, being assigned with a
different address from other cards. For Ethernet, frames
are sent and received based on this address.

Before Using the Wireless LAN
This manual describes the procedures required to properly set up and configure the 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 Device Covered by this Document
This document is applicable to systems containing the
Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connections
(802.11a+b/g)
Characteristics of the WLAN Device
■
The WLAN device is a Mini-PCI card attached to the
main board of the mobile computer.
■
The WLAN device operates in license-free RF bands,
eliminating the need to procure an FCC operating
license. The WLAN operates in the 2.4GHz Industrial,
Scientific, and Medical (ISM) RF band and the lower,
middle, and upper bands of the 5GHz Unlicensed
National Information Infrastructure (UNII) bands.
■
The Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG WLAN device is
capable of three operating modes, IEEE802.11a,
IEEE802.11b and IEEE802.11g.
■
The WLAN device is Wi-Fi certified and operates at
the maximum data transfer rate of 54 Mbps in
IEEE802.11a or IEEE802.11g mode and 11 Mbps in
IEEE802.11b mode.
■
The maximum communication range indoors is
approximately 80 feet (25 meters). However, that
range will increase or decrease depending on factors
such as number of walls, reflective material, or interference from external RF sources.
■
The WLAN device supports the following encryption
methods - WEP, TKIP, CKIP, and AES encryption.
Figure A-1. Ad Hoc Mode Network
90
■
This device is compliant with the following standards:
WPA, WPA2, CCX1.0, CCX2.0, and CCX3.0.
WIRELESS LAN MODES USING THIS DEVICE
Ad Hoc Mode
(See Figure 5-1) "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, network authentication, and encryption key settings are identically
configured on all computers in the Ad Hoc network.
Access Point (Infrastructure) Mode
(See Figure 5-2) 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 WLAN in order to access services, devices,
and computers (e.g., file servers, printers, 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.
E8110.book Page 91 Tuesday, February 28, 2006 2:59 PM
W I r e l e s s L A N U s e r ’s G u i d e
■
The Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG WLAN device supports IEEE802.11a, IEEE802.11b and IEEE802.11g.
■
The WLAN device operates in the 2.4 GHz ISM band
and the 5 GHz lower, middle, and upper UNII bands.
■
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 devices. Interference by microwaves does not occur with IEEE802.11a
radio which operates in the 5 GHz RF band.
■
Wireless devices that transmit in the 2.4 GHz 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
recommended that these interfering devices be powered off to ensure the proper operation of the WLAN.
DEACTIVATING THE WLAN DEVICE
Deactivation of the WLAN device may be desired in
certain circumstances (to extend battery life) or where
certain environments require it (i.e. hospitals, clinics,
airplanes, etc.). Fujitsu mobile computers employ two
methods with which to deactivate the WLAN device,
1) the Wireless On/Off Switch, and, 2) in Windows using
the Intel PROSet for Wireless utility.
Before using the wireless LAN device, you
must first install ClickMe! to ensure that
the correct software for your device is
installed. (See Installing Click Me! on
page 28 for more information)
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 5-3)
The Wireless On/Off switch has no effect on non-Wireless LAN models.

Wireless LAN Glossary
GLOSSARY
Access point
Wireless network device used to bridge wireless and
wired network traffic.
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 90.
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 identify
uniquely 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.
Channel
Network key
Range of narrow-band frequencies used by the WLAN
device to transmit data. IEEE802.11b/g - 11 channels, 22
MHz wide channels.
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.
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.
IEEE802.11g
Wireless LAN standard that supports a maximum data
rate of 54 Mbps. 802.11g devices operate in the 2.4 GHz
ISM band.
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.
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 action upon communication errors into procedures.
Shared key authentication
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
97
E8110.book Page 98 Tuesday, February 28, 2006 2:59 PM
LifeBook E Series Notebook - Appendix A
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 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 (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 WiFi 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:
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.

Using the Fingerprint Sensor
Fingerprint Sensor Device
INTRODUCING THE FINGERPRINT
SENSOR DEVICE
Your system has an optional fingerprint sensor device
below the Touchpad, between the left and right buttons.
This also serves as a scroll button. (Figure 1)
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.
INSTALLING OMNIPASS
If OmniPass has already been installed on your system,
skip this section and go directly to “User Enrollment” on
page 104. You can determine whether OmniPass has
already been installed by checking to see if the following
are present:
■
■
Figure A-1 Fingerprint sensor
Although the system may have a
fingerprint sensor in place of a scroll
button, the fingerprint sensor can be used
for scrolling. Simply move your fingerprint
over the sensor the same as you would use
a scroll button.
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 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 passwordprotected resources.
OmniPass presents a convenient graphical user interface,
through which you can securely manage passwords,
users, and multiple identities for each user.
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:
■
■
Windows XP Professional 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 104. 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 with an administrator user 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.

(Softex OmniPass) in the Windows Control Panel as well
as a golden key shaped icon in the taskbar.
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.
Verifying Information about OmniPass
After you have completed installing OmniPass and
restarted your system, you may wish to check the version
of OmniPass on your system.
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.
To check the version information of 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 “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.
1. From the Windows Desktop, double-click the keyshaped OmniPass icon in the taskbar (usually
located in the lower right corner of the screen),
or,
Click the Start button, select Settings, and click
Control Panel (if you are using Windows XP you
will see the Control Panel directly in the Start menu;
click it, then click Switch to Classic View). Doubleclick Softex OmniPass in the Control Panel, and the
OmniPass Control Center will appear. If it does not
appear, then the program is not properly installed,
or,
Click the Start button, select Programs, and from
the submenu select the Softex program group, from
that submenu click OmniPass Control Center.
2. Select the About tab at the top of the OmniPass
Control Panel. The About tab window appears with
version information about OmniPass.
Uninstalling OmniPass
For uninstallation, OmniPass requires that
the user uninstalling OmniPass have
administrative privileges to the system. If
your current user does not have
administrative privileges, log out and then
log in with an administrator user before
proceeding with OmniPass uninstallation.
To remove the OmniPass application from your system:
1. Click Start on the Windows taskbar. Select Settings,
and then Control Panel.
2. Double-click Add/Remove Programs.
3. Select OmniPass, and then click Change/Remove.
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
104
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
“lifebook”) 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 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 of this document.
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 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
E8110.book Page 105 Tuesday, February 28, 2006 2:59 PM
Using the Fingerprint Sensor
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 105 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 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].
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) 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.
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 authentications.
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.

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.
106
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 Ctrl-Alt-Del 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.

Using the Fingerprint Sensor
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., [email protected] and
[email protected]). 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.
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
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 106.
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.
■
■
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.
You don't forget the Windows login
credentials when exporting. 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.
107
E8110.book Page 108 Tuesday, February 28, 2006 2:59 PM
LifeBook E8000 Notebook – Appendix B
Exporting an OmniPass User Profile
To export a user, open the OmniPass Control Center,
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.
■
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 107. 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 104.
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.
■
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.
108
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 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,
E8110.book Page 109 Tuesday, February 28, 2006 2:59 PM
Using the Fingerprint Sensor
etc.). The details of each setting under the Audio
Settings and Taskbar Tips interfaces are self-explanatory.
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.
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
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, 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.
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,
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.
