of fire, electric shock and injury to persons, including
the following:
■
■
■
■
■
■
Do not use this product near water for example,
near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink or laundry

Avoid using the modem during an electrical storm.
There may be a remote risk of electric shock from

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
For Authorized Repair Technicians Only
Danger of explosion if Lithium (clock) battery is incorrectly replaced. Replace only

LAMP(S) INSIDE THIS PRODUCT
Hg CONTAIN MERCURY AND MUST
BE RECYCLED OR DISPOSED OF
ACCORDING TO LOCAL, STATE, OR
FEDERAL LAWS.
RECYCLING YOUR BATTERY
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.
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.
RBRC has drop-off points at tens of thousands of locations throughout the United States and Canada. To find
the location nearest you, go to www.RBRC.org or call 1800-822-8837.
If there are no convenient RBRC locations near you, you
can also go to the EIA Consumer Education Initiative
website (http://EIAE.org/) and search for a convenient
disposal location.
Remember – protecting the environment is a cooperative effort, and you should make every effort to protect it
for current and future generations.
* To order a new battery for your Fujitsu mobile
computer, go to the Fujitsu shopping site at
www.shopfujitsu.com in the US or www.fujitsu.ca/
products/notebooks in Canada.
** RBRC is an independent third party to which Fujitsu
provides funding for battery recycling; RBRC is in
no way affiliated with Fujitsu.

other special function keys. This section describes the
following keys.
■
■
■
■
16
Numeric keypad: Your LifeBook notebook has a tenkey numeric keypad which allows certain keys to serve
dual purposes, both as numeric/mathematical keys
and navigation keys. The ability to toggle between the
numerical keys and navigation keys is controlled
through the [NumLk] key.
Cursor keys: Your keyboard contains four arrow
keys for moving the cursor or insertion point to the
right, left, up, or down within windows, applications
and documents.
Function keys: The keys labeled [F1] through [F12]
are used in conjunction with the [Fn] key to produce
special actions that vary depending on what program
is running.
Windows keys: These keys work with your Windows
operating system and function the same as the
onscreen Start menu button, or the right button on
your pointing device.

Your notebook has two Windows keys: a Start key and
an Application key. The Start key displays the Start
menu, and 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 selected item. (Refer to your Windows documentation for more information regarding the Windows
keys.)
CURSOR KEYS
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).

Volume Control
Your LifeBook notebook has multiple volume controls
which interact with each other.
Any software that contains audio files will
also contain a volume control of its own. If
you install an external audio device that
has an independent volume control, the
hardware volume control and the software
volume control will interact with each
other. It should be noted that if you set
your software volume to Off, you will
override the external volume control
setting.

Touchpad Pointing Device
The Touchpad pointing device is built into your 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 and right button,
and an up-and-down scroll button (which also acts as a
fingerprint recognition 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, and
the more pressure you use, the faster the cursor will
move.
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.
The up-and down scroll button allows you to quickly
navigate up and down a screen. For information on
using the scroll button as a fingerprint recognition
sensor, refer to “Fingerprint Sensor Device” on page 99
An external mouse can be connected to
the USB port on your notebook, and be
used simultaneously with the Touchpad.
However, if you boot the system with an
external mouse connected the Touchpad
will be disabled or enabled depending on
your BIOS settings. (See BIOS Setup Util-

Starting Your
LifeBook Notebook
Never turn off your notebook during the
Power On Self Test (POST) or it will cause
an error message to be displayed when
you turn your notebook on the next time.
POWER ON
Power and Suspend/Resume Button
The Power and Suspend/Resume button is used to power
on your LifeBook notebook, to resume from Sleep or
Save-to-Disk mode or to place your notebook in Sleep or
Save-to-Disk mode. (You can also use the button to
power down the system by holding it down for approximately five seconds. This can be useful if the system is
“hung up”. This shouldn’t be used as the normal means of
shutdown, however.) You can also turn off your notebook
by choosing Shut Down from the Windows Start menu.
(See Power On Self Test Messages on
page 61 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 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 the 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:
Power/Suspend
Resume Button
■
You turn on the power to your LifeBook notebook.
■
You restart your LifeBook notebook from the Windows Shut Down dialog box.
■
The software initiates a system restart. Example:
When you install a new application.
Figure 3-3. Powering Up the System
Once you have connected your AC adapter or charged
the internal Lithium ion Battery, you can press this
button to power up your notebook. (Figure 3-3)
When you turn on your notebook be sure
you have a power source. This means that
the battery is installed and charged, or the
AC adapter is connected and has power.
Do not carry the notebook around with
power on or subject it to vibration or
shocks; doing so could damage the
notebook.
When you Power On your notebook, 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 notebook will emit an audio warning and/
or an error message will be displayed. (See Power On Self
Test Messages on page 61 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 Power On Self Test
(POST), your notebook will load your operating system.
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 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 also allows you to configure such
features as the System Data Security feature parameters,
such as passwords.

Power Management
Your LifeBook notebook has many options and features
for conserving battery power. Some of these features are
automatic and need no user intervention, such as those
for the internal modem. However, others depend on the
parameters you set to best suit your operating conditions, such as those for the display brightness. Internal
power management for your LifeBook notebook may be
controlled from settings made in your operating system.
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 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.
■
■
Timing out from lack of activity.
Allowing the battery to reach the Dead Battery
Warning condition.
Your LifeBook notebook’s system memory typically
stores the file(s) on which you are working, open application(s) information, and any other data required to
support the operation(s) in progress. When you resume
operation from Sleep mode, your LifeBook notebook
will return to the point where it left off. You must use the
Power and Suspend/Resume button to resume operation, and there must be an adequate power source available, or your LifeBook 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 Sleep mode, though not as
fast as when fully operational.
■
Disabling the Suspend/Resume button
prevents it from being used to put your
LifeBook notebook in Sleep or Save-toDisk mode. The resume function of the
button cannot be disabled.
■
The Sleep or Hibernation (Save-to-Disk)
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 re-starts.
■
If your notebook is actively accessing
information when you enter the Sleep or
Hibernation (Save-to-Disk) mode,
changes to open files are not lost. The
files are left open and memory is kept
active during Sleep mode, or the memory is transferred to the internal hard
drive during Hibernation mode.
■
The main advantage of using the Hibernation (Save-to-Disk) function is that
power is not required to maintain your
data. This is particularly important if you
will be leaving your LifeBook 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.
■
Your system is set to use the Max Battery power scheme when running on
battery power. If you change the power
scheme to a different profile, your battery life may vary.
POWER AND SUSPEND/RESUME BUTTON
When your LifeBook notebook is active, the Power and
Suspend/Resume button can be used to manually put
your notebook into Sleep mode. Push the Power and
Suspend/Resume button when your notebook is active,
but not actively accessing anything, and immediately
release the button. You will hear two short beeps and
your system will enter Sleep mode.
If your notebook is suspended, pushing the Power and
Suspend/Resume button will return your notebook to
active operation. You can tell whether or not your
system is in Sleep mode by looking at the Power indicator which is part of the Suspend/Resume button. (See
Figure 2-8 on page 15 for location) If the indicator is
visible and not flashing, your LifeBook notebook is fully
operational. If the indicator is both visible and flashing,
your notebook is in Sleep mode. If the indicator is not
visible at all, the power is off or your notebook is in
Save-to-Disk (Hibernation) mode. (See Hibernation
(Save-to-Disk) Feature on page 31 for more information)
SLEEP MODE
Sleep mode saves the contents of your LifeBook notebook’s system memory during periods of inactivity by
maintaining power to critical parts. This mode will turn
off the CPU, the display, the hard drive, and all of the
other internal components except those necessary to
maintain system memory and allow for restarting. Your
LifeBook notebook can be put in Sleep mode by:
■
■
■
30
Pressing the Power/Suspend/Resume button when
your system is turned on.
Clicking the power icon on the lock menu.
Selecting Sleep from the Windows Shut Down menu.

HIBERNATION (SAVE-TO-DISK) FEATURE
The Hibernation feature saves the contents of your
notebook’s system memory 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 settings are not enabled. To enable or disable
the Hibernation feature follow these steps:

select Power Options.
2. Select “Choose what the power button does” or
“Choose what closing the lid does”, then make your
selections (Do Nothing, Sleep, Hibernate, or Shut
Down).
WINDOWS POWER MANAGEMENT
The Power Options icon located in the Windows
Control Panel allows you to configure some of the power
management settings. For example, you can use the
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 move the mouse
over the right arrow.
2. Select the desired action from the list.
Turning off your LifeBook notebook without exiting Windows or turning on your
notebook within 10 seconds of the notebook being shut off may cause an error
when you start the next time.
POWER OFF
Before turning off the power, check that the hard drive/
optical drive access indicator is off. If you turn off the
power while accessing a disk there is a risk of data loss.
To ensure that your notebook shuts down without error,
use the Windows shut down procedure.
Be sure to close all files, exit all applications, and shut down your operating system prior to turning off the power. If files
are open when you turn 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

Lithium ion Battery
Your Fujitsu LifeBook notebook has a Lithium ion
battery that provides power for operating your notebook when no external power source is available. The
rechargeable battery is durable and long lasting, but
should not be exposed to extreme temperatures, high
voltages, chemicals or other hazards. For information
on maximizing your battery life, refer to the section
entitled “Power Management” on page 30.
The Lithium ion battery operating time may become
shorter if it is used under the following conditions:
■
■
■
Your system is set to use the Max Battery power
scheme when running on battery power. If you change
the power scheme to a different profile, your battery
life may vary.
When used at temperatures that exceed a low of
5°C (40°F) or a high of 35°C (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 its operating
temperature range. (See Battery Charging Indicator on
page 15 for more information)
When using a high current device such as a modem,
DVD/CD-RW drive, DVD writer, or 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 or your notebook itself. It
may also prevent operation of your
notebook by draining all available current into the bad battery.
Under federal, state, or local law it may
be illegal to dispose of batteries by putting them in the trash. Please take care
of our environment and dispose of
batteries properly. Check with your local
government authority for details
regarding recycling or disposing of old
batteries. If you cannot find this
information elsewhere, contact your
support representative at:
1-800-8FUJITSU (1-800-838-5487).
Actual battery life will vary based on
factors such as screen brightness,
applications, features, power management
settings, battery condition and other
customer preferences. DVD/CD-RW,
DVD- writer, or hard drive usage may
also have a significant impact on battery
life. Battery charging capacity is reduced as
the battery ages. If your battery is running
low quickly, you should replace it.
RECHARGING THE BATTERIES
If you want to know the condition of the primary
Lithium ion battery, check the Battery Status 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. To recharge the battery make sure the
battery that needs to be charged is installed in your LifeBook notebook and connect the AC adapter.
Make sure the Battery Charging indicator
and the percentage charge is shown inside
the Battery Status 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 LifeBook notebook is in use
while the battery is charging. If you want to charge the
battery more quickly, put your LifeBook into Sleep
mode, or turn it off while the adapter is charging the
battery. (See Power Management on page 30 for more
information on Sleep mode and shutdown procedure)
Using high current devices such as a
modem or frequent optical drive accesses
may prevent complete charging.
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 LifeBook notebook will go into Sleep
mode. There is no guarantee that your data will not be
lost once the notebook reaches this point.
Note that you can change the state in which the battery
goes into Sleep mode in the Power properties of the
Control Panel.
To prevent loss of data, you should save all
your active data and put your notebook
into Sleep mode when the low battery
message appears, until you can provide a
new power source. When you are in Sleep
mode, there must always be at least one
power source active. If you turn off the
power with the power/suspend/resume
button, or remove all power sources while
your notebook is in Sleep mode, any data
that has not been saved to the hard drive
will be lost. You should provide power to
your notebook from an AC power adapter
as soon as possible.

Dead Battery Suspend mode shows on the Status indicator just like the normal Sleep mode. Once your LifeBook notebook goes into Dead Battery Suspend mode
you will be unable to resume operation until you
provide a source of power from an AC adapter. Once you
have provided power, you will need to press the
Suspend/Resume button to resume operation. In the
Dead Battery Suspend mode, your data can be maintained for some time, but if a power source is not
provided promptly, the Power indicator will stop
flashing and go out, meaning that you have lost the data
that was not stored. Once you provide power, you can
continue to use your LifeBook notebook while the
adapter is charging the battery.
Shorted Batteries
The Status Indicator panel displays the battery status via
the Battery Status indicator to show the charge level
available in that battery. If the display is flashing red, it
means that the battery is damaged and must be replaced
so it does not damage any other parts of your LifeBook
notebook.

USING THE DRIVE ON BATTERY POWER
Since optical drives consume a lot of power, your overall
battery life will be shorter when operating the optical
drive continuously (such as watching a DVD movie).
Many movie run-times are longer than your LifeBook
notebook 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.

Prolonged use of the optical drive, such
as watching a DVD movie, will
substantially reduce your 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 battery is recommended if
you will be watching DVD movies on
battery power. If you don’t have an
additional battery, you may purchase
one either on-line at:
www.shopfujitsu.com or call 1-877372-3473.
AUTO INSERT NOTIFICATION FUNCTION
The Auto Insert Notification function allows your LifeBook notebook to automatically start a DVD/CD as soon
as it is inserted in the optical drive and the tray is closed.
Your notebook will begin playing an audio DVD/CD or
will start an application if the DVD/CD includes an auto
run file.
To prevent a CD from playing automatically as soon as it
is inserted, refer to the related help file for your specific
operating system.
To Watch a Movie on Battery Power:
1. Have an additional fully-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 optical player.
If you don’t stop the optical drive quickly
and the notebook attempts to autosuspend (critical battery low state) the
notebook will shut down improperly. If this
occurs, you will need to power the system
up with the power/suspend/resume button
and follow any instructions that appear.
4. Manually place your notebook into Sleep mode by
depressing the Suspend button. Plug in a power
adapter and replace the discharged battery with an
additional fully-charged battery. If you do not have
an additional battery, you may use the AC power
adapter as your power source to continue watching
the movie while recharging the installed battery.
5. Resume your notebook by pressing the Suspend
button again. This step is not required if you
attached AC power without entering Sleep mode.
6. Restart your optical drive, locate and skip to the
chapter of the movie you were last watching.
7. Continue watching your DVD movie.
Some shorter DVD movies may not require
you to swap batteries or attach AC power
to complete them. However, it is best to be
prepared since actual battery life while
operating the optical drive cannot be
guaranteed.

Memory Upgrade Module
Your notebook has two memory slots, and the system
comes with 1 GB, 2 GB, or 4 GB of factory-installed
memory. If you have a module installed in only one slot,
you can increase your memory capacity by installing
another memory module in the empty slot or by
increasing the size of the single installed module. The
minimum amount of memory in your system is 1GB.
■
Systems with Microsoft Windows Vista
installed require a minimum of 512 MB
of memory, but 1 GB or more is recommended.
■
If 4 GB of memory is installed in your
system, only 3.25 GB are usable, due to
operating system constraints.
INSTALLING A MEMORY MODULE
1. Turn off power to your LifeBook notebook using the
power/suspend/resume button, and remove any
power adapter.
2. Make sure that all the connector covers are closed.

The Recovery and Utility Disc that came with your
system contains two utilities:
■
■
There may be certain free third-party
applications pre-installed on your system
that are not on the DAR disc. The latest
versions of the applications can be
downloaded from the third-party’s website.
To re-install drivers and/or applications:
1. Boot up the system and insert the DAR disc after
Windows has started. A Fujitsu Installer screen is
displayed after the disc 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 disc.
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.

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 A-2) Infrastructure mode refers to a wireless
network architecture in which devices communicate
with wireless or wired network devices by communicating through an Access Point. In infrastructure mode,
wireless devices can communicate with each other or
with a wired network. Corporate wireless networks
operate in infrastructure mode because they require
access to the WLAN in order to access services, devices,
and computers (e.g., file servers, printers, databases).

supports IEEE802.11a, IEEE802.11b, IEEE802.11g,
and IEEE802.11n (draft).
■
The WLAN device operates in the 2.4GHz 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 2.4GHz
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.
Deactivation using the Wireless On/Off Switch
The WLAN device can be deactivated quickly and efficiently by sliding the Wireless On/Off Switch to the Off
position. (Figure A-3)
The wireless On/Off switch has no effect on non-Wireless LAN models.

Wireless LAN Glossary
GLOSSARY
Ad Hoc Mode
Ad Hoc Mode refers to a wireless network architecture
where wireless network connectivity between multiple
computers is established without a central wireless
network device, typically known as Access Points.
Connectivity is accomplished using only client devices in
a peer-to-peer fashion.
MAC address (Media Access Control Address)
A MAC address (also called an Ethernet address or IEEE
MAC address) is the 48-bit address (typically written as
twelve hexadecimal digits, 0 through 9 and A through F,
or as six hexadecimal numbers separated by periods or
colons, e.g., 0080002012ef, 0:80:0:2:20:ef) which
uniquely identifies a computer that has an Ethernet
interface.
MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit)
Range of narrow-band frequencies used by the WLAN
device to transmit data. IEEE802.11b/g - 11 channels, 22
MHz wide channels.
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.
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
Network key
A protocol that provides a means to dynamically allocate
IP addresses to computers on a local area network.
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.
Channel
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.
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
Access point
Null authentication method specified in the 802.11 standard that performs no authentication checks on a wireless client before allowing it to associate.
Wireless network device used to bridge wireless and
wired network traffic.
PPPoE (Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet)
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.
A method of allowing the authentication protocol
adopted in telephone line connection (PPP) to be used
over an Ethernet.
Protocol
A procedure or rule of delivering data among
computers. Ordered data communication is allowed by
making all conditions required for communication
including the method of data transmission/reception
and actions upon communication errors into procedures.
Shared key authentication
92
N6460-Baikal.book Page 93 Friday, June 1, 2007 2:50 PM
W I r e l e s s L A N U s e r ’s G u i d e
802.11 network authentication method in which the AP
sends the client device a challenge text packet that the
client must then encrypt with the correct WEP key and
return to the AP. If the client has the wrong key or no
key, authentication will fail and the client will not be
allowed to associate with the AP. Shared key authentication is not considered secure, because a hacker who
detects both the clear-text challenge and the same challenge encrypted with a WEP key can decipher the WEP
key.
SSID (Service Set Identifier)
Service Set Identifier, a 32-character unique identifier
attached to the header of packets sent over a WLAN that
acts as a password when a mobile device tries to connect
to the BSS. The SSID differentiates one WLAN from
another, so all access points and all devices attempting to
connect to a specific WLAN must use the same SSID. A
device will not be permitted to join the BSS unless it can
provide the unique SSID. Because the SSID is broadcast
in plain text, it does not supply any security to the
network.
Subnet mask
TCP-IP network is controlled by being divided into
multiple smaller networks (subnets). IP address consists
of the subnet address and the address of each computer.
Subnet mask defines how many bits of IP address
comprise the subnet address. The same value shall be set
among computers communicating with each other.
TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet
Protocol)
A standard protocol of the Internet.
Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi, or Wireless Fidelity, is a set of standards for wireless local area networks (WLAN) based on the IEEE
802.11 specifications. Certified products can use the
official Wi-Fi logo, which indicates that the product is
interoperable with any other product also showing that
logo.

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

installation process. You will also be led through the
procedure of enrolling your first user into OmniPass.
INTRODUCING THE FINGERPRINT
SENSOR DEVICE
INSTALLING OMNIPASS
Your system has a fingerprint sensor device below the
Touchpad, between the left and right buttons. This also
serves as a scroll button.
If OmniPass has already been installed on your system,
skip this section and go directly to “User Enrollment” on
page 100. You can determine whether OmniPass has
already been installed by checking to see if the following
are present:
■
■
The presence of the gold key-shaped OmniPass icon in
the system tray at the bottom right of the screen.
The presence of the Softex program group in the
Programs group of the Start menu
System Requirements
The OmniPass application requires space on your hard
drive; it also requires specific Operating Systems (OS’s).
The minimum requirements are as follows:
Figure B-1 Fingerprint sensor
■
■
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 Sleep 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.
The use of OmniPass results in a secure authentication
system for restricting access to your computer, applications, websites, and other password-protected resources.
OmniPass presents a convenient graphical user interface,
through which you can securely manage passwords,
users, and multiple identities for each user.
GETTING STARTED
This section guides you through the preparation of your
system for the OmniPass fingerprint recognition
application. You will be led through the OmniPass
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 100. (If you have run the
ClickMe! utility, it is likely that OmniPass has already
been installed on your system.) 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.
The installation program automatically places an icon
(Softex OmniPass) in the Windows Control Panel as well
as a golden key shaped icon in the system tray.

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.
To check the version information of OmniPass:
1. From the Windows Desktop, double-click the keyshaped OmniPass icon in the system tray (usually
located in the lower right corner of the screen),
or,
Click the Start button, select Settings, and click
Control Panel. Double-click 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
Before you uninstall the software, decrypt
all OmniPass encrypted files and export all
OmniPass User Profiles. Failure to do so
may result in permanent loss of encrypted
file data, and permanent loss of all
remembered passwords and associated
information (see Chapter 5 of the
OmniPass help document: Exporting and
Importing Users).
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:
Master Password Concept
Computer resources are often protected with passwords.
Whether you are logging into your computer, accessing
your email, e-banking, paying bills online, or accessing
network resources, you often have to supply credentials
to gain access. This can result in dozens of sets of credentials that you have to remember.
During OmniPass user enrollment a "master password”
is created for the enrolled user. This master password
“replaces” all other passwords for sites you register with
OmniPass.
Example: A user, John, installs OmniPass on his system
(his home computer) and enrolls an OmniPass user with
username “John_01” and password “freq14”. He then
goes to his webmail site to log onto his account. He
inputs his webmail credentials as usual (username
“John_02” and password “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.
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.
1. Click Start on the Windows system tray. 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.
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 system tray; select Programs; select
Softex; click OmniPass Enrollment Wizard.
USER ENROLLMENT
1. Click Enroll to proceed to username and password
verification. By default, the OmniPass Enrollment
Before you can use any OmniPass features you must first
enroll a user into OmniPass.

Wizard enters the credentials of the currently logged
in Windows user.
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 101 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].
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 sleep 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.

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
102
click the website [OK], [Submit], or [Login] button to
gain access to the 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.
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 Pass-

Using the Fingerprint Sensor
words under Vault Settings. You will see the Manage
Passwords interface, with a list of friendly names.
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
cally 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 102.
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
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 automati103

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.
OmniPass will notify you if the user was successfully
imported.
Things to Know Regarding Import/Export
Assume you export a local Windows User profile from
OmniPass. You want to import that profile to another
machine that has OmniPass. Before you can import
the profile, a Windows user with the same login credentials must be created on the machine importing the
profile.
■
Example: I have a Windows user with the username
“Tom” and the password “Sunshine” on my system. I
have enrolled Tom into OmniPass and remembered
passwords. I want to take all my passwords to new system. I export Tom’s OmniPass user profile. I go to my
new system and using the Control Panel I create a user
with the username "Tom" and the password "Sunshine". I can now successfully import the OmniPass
user data to the new system.
■
If you export an OmniPass-only user, you can import
that user to any computer running OmniPass, provided that a user with that name is not already
enrolled in OmniPass.
■
If you attempt to import a user profile who has the
same name as a user already enrolled in OmniPass, the
OmniPass import function will fail.
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.
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 system tray (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.
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.

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 103. 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 100.
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
N6460-Baikal.book Page 105 Friday, June 1, 2007 2:50 PM
Using the Fingerprint Sensor
to remove. OmniPass will prompt you to confirm user
removal. Click OK to complete user removal.
Removing a user will automatically destroy
all OmniPass data associated with that
user. All identities and credentials
associated with the user will be lost.
If you are sure about removing the user,
we recommend you export the user
profile.
User Settings
The User Settings tab has four interfaces: Audio 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.
The Enrollment interface allows you to enroll fingerprints. To enroll additional fingerprints, click Enroll
Authentication Device, and authenticate with
OmniPass. Select the fingerprint recognition device in
the Select Authentication Device screen (it should
already be marked by a green check if you have a finger
enrolled) and click Next.
System Settings
The OmniPass Startup Options interface can be found
in the System Settings tab. With these options you can
specify how your OmniPass Logon is tied to your
Windows Logon.
The first option, Automatically log on to OmniPass as
the current user, will do just as it says; during Windows
login, you will be logged on to OmniPass using your
Windows login credentials. If the user logging into
Windows was never enrolled into OmniPass, upon login
no one will be logged on to OmniPass. This setting is
appropriate for an office setting or any setting where
users must enter a username and password to log into a
computer. This is the default setting.
With the second option, Manually log on to OmniPass
at startup, OmniPass will prompt you to login once you
have logged on to Windows.
With the third option, Do not log on to OmniPass at
startup, OmniPass will not prompt for a user to be
logged on.
You can manually log on to OmniPass by right-clicking
the OmniPass system tray icon and clicking Log in User
from the right-click menu.
TROUBLESHOOTING
You cannot use OmniPass to create Windows users. You
must first create the Windows user, and you will need
administrative privileges to do that. Once the Windows
user is created, you can add that user to OmniPass using
the same username and password
Cannot add Windows users to OmniPass
If you experience difficulties adding a Windows user
to OmniPass, you may need to adjust your local security settings. You can do this by going to Start,
Control Panel, Administrative Tools, and Local
Security Settings. Expand Local Policies, expand
Security Options, and double-click Network Access:
Sharing and Security Model for Local Accounts. The
correct setting should be Classic - Local Users Authenticate as Themselves.
Cannot add a User with a Blank Password to OmniPass
If you experience difficulties adding a user with a
blank password to OmniPass, you may need to adjust
your local security settings. First attempt the procedure explained in the Cannot add Windows user to
OmniPass section. If the difficulties persist, then try
the following procedure.
Click Start, 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.
