You can perform three basic actions using the stylus:
Tap—Lightly touch the screen to select or open an item. Lift the
stylus after you tap an item. Tapping is equivalent to clicking an
item with the mouse on your computer.
Drag—Place the point of the stylus on the screen and drag an
item across the screen without lifting the stylus until you have
completed the selection. Dragging is equivalent to dragging with
the left mouse button pressed on your computer.
Tap and hold—Hold the stylus pointer on an item for a short
time until a menu displays. Tapping and holding is equivalent to
right-clicking your computer mouse button. When you tap and
hold, a circle of red dots appears around the stylus to indicate that
the menu will soon pop up.

Managing the Battery
Installing the Battery
The Pocket PC has a small internal backup battery that allows
you to change the main battery without losing RAM data
(user-installed programs and data) as long as it is replaced
immediately.
It is recommended that you fully charge the iPAQ Pocket PC
battery before setting up the unit, and recharge regularly. Your
Pocket PC uses some power to maintain files in RAM and the
clock. While working at your desk, keep the Pocket PC and
Charger Adapter connected through the desktop cradle. When
you travel, it is recommended that you carry the AC Adapter,
Charger Adapter plug, or an optional spare battery with you.
Your iPAQ Pocket PC is shipped with the battery partially

Pairing Devices
You can pair devices so they must exchange a computer generated
security key prior to each connection. The security key is also
called a “Link Key.” It is generated from a unique Bluetooth
device address, a random number, and a user-defined password.
After two devices are paired, they have a trusted relationship with
each other that can be verified using a link key. No additional
input is needed from the user. Therefore, connections and
activities can be performed between the paired devices without
constant authorization from the user.

using one of the 802.1X protocols. Refer to “Manually Entering
New Network Settings” earlier in this chapter for information on
selecting one of these protocols.
To retrieve a certificate:
1. Be sure your Pocket PC has an ActiveSync connection to a
computer on the same network as the certificate server.
2. Tap Start > Settings > System tab > Enroller.
3. Complete the on-screen certificate request form by entering

LEAP Registration Utility
Cisco LEAP is an 802.1X authentication protocol that uses a
username and password pair to authenticate access by a wireless
client to a wireless router.
Use of the LEAP registration utility is required to log on to a
LEAP-authenticated network. Most of the other types of secure
networks are set up automatically by the iPAQ WLAN connection
software. However, accessing a LEAP-authenticated network
requires initial registration using this utility. Once you have
authenticated and accessed this type of network, a connection
can take place automatically whenever you access the
LEAP-authenticated network.
To register the LEAP utility:
1. Tap Start > Settings > System tab > LEAP.
2. Tap New to create a LEAP profile. A LEAP profile must
contain the following information:
❏
SSID
❏
Username
❏
Password
❏
Domain
❏
Authentication type required by the LEAP server
3. Tap Modify to make changes to the selected LEAP profile
from the Wireless LEAP list. Changes to the LEAP profile
can also be made by tapping on an entry in the Wireless
LEAP list.
