Getting to Know Your iPAQ
Pocket PC
Congratulations on purchasing your HP iPAQ hx2000 Series
Pocket PC. Use this guide to help you set up your Pocket PC and

tap or write on your screen.
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.

hold, a circle of red dots appears around the stylus to indicate that
the menu will soon pop up.
Ä
CAUTION: To prevent damage to your iPAQ Pocket PC screen, never
use any device other than the stylus that comes with the Pocket PC

Managing the Battery
Your iPAQ Pocket PC is shipped with a rechargeable battery that
is partially charged. It is recommended that you fully charge the
Pocket PC battery before setting up the device, 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 AC Adapter connected through the HP Desktop Cradle.
When you travel, it is recommended that you carry the AC
Adapter, Charger Adapter plug, or an optional spare battery with
you.
Ä
CAUTION: Use only an HP approved battery for your iPAQ Pocket
PC. Inserting a battery that does not comply with HP requirements might
cause the Pocket PC to malfunction and will void the HP iPAQ limited
warranty.
The iPAQ Pocket PC also 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 within
15 minutes. The internal battery can only be removed by

CAUTION: Because most of the applications and data you install on
your Pocket PC are held in memory (RAM), you will need to reinstall
them if the battery completely discharges or if the battery is removed
from the device for more than a few minutes. Otherwise, when fully
charged, the internal backup battery saves the user-installed data for up
to 15 minutes when the standard battery is removed. Before removing
the battery, check to see that the internal backup battery is fully
charged by tapping Start > Settings > System tab > Power icon.
You do not need to reinstall applications and data installed in the iPAQ
File Store folder because they are saved in nonvolatile memory.

Using Security Features
The widespread use of Pocket PCs has significantly increased
employee productivity. However, non-secured or inadequately
secured Pocket PCs are creating network security issues for the
corporate workplace when they connect to a secure network.
Valuable information is bypassing network security and being
stored on inadequately secured Pocket PCs. The HP ProtectTools
security features provide on-device security protection so there is
less risk of losing sensitive information on your Pocket PC.
Using HP ProtectTools
HP ProtectTools helps protect your Pocket PC by providing
authentication and encryption of email, calendar, contacts, notes,
tasks, and/or all files stored in the My Documents folder. It can
also be used to encrypt data stored on expansion cards.
When you enable HP ProtectTools, you have the option of
enrolling a fingerprint or entering a PIN and/or password to
access the Pocket PC. If you are unable to successfully swipe
your fingerprint or you forget your PIN or password, you can
access the device with a backup question and answer.
Ä
CAUTION: HP ProtectTools helps protect your Pocket PC and the
data stored on it. If you are unable to access your device with any of
the above methods, there is no way to unlock your device. You have
to restore your device to factory settings, resulting in the loss of all
data on your iPAQ Pocket PC, including data stored in iPAQ File
Store. It is recommended that you remember your PIN/password
and question/answer.

Unlocking Your Pocket PC
The authentication method for unlocking your Pocket PC is as
follows:
■
Swipe your fingerprint and/or enter your PIN and/or
password when prompted. If you successfully enter the
requested information, the device unlocks.
■
After the number of attempts you selected during setup, if
you still do not successfully swipe your fingerprint and/or
enter your PIN and/or password correctly, you are prompted
to answer the hint question you defined. If you successfully
answer your hint question, the device unlocks.
Note: After you successfully authenticate, you are prompted to
reset any authentication information you didn't enter correctly.
For example, if you forgot your PIN, but successfully enter your
hint question/answer, you are prompted to enter a new PIN.

to your hint question and will not remember it with further
attempts, then you must tap the Reset Device button.
Ä
CAUTION: If you tap the Reset Device button, you lose all data on
the device, including the iPAQ File Store. If you choose this option, be
aware that resetting iPAQ File Store could take a long time after the
iPAQ initialization process has been completed. It is recommended that
you connect your device to AC power during this period to avoid
timeouts or loss of power.
If you perform a hard reset instead of tapping the Reset Device button
AND you selected Keep Security on the Fail-Safe Settings screen,
your iPAQ Pocket PC returns to its default settings and loses all
information (files, settings, etc.) except data stored in iPAQ File Store.
In this case, you must still answer your hint question to regain access to
your Pocket PC. For more information on performing a hard reset, refer
to Chapter 1, “Getting to Know Your iPAQ Pocket PC.”
Encrypting/Decrypting Data
If your iPAQ Pocket PC has been off for longer than the time you
selected during setup, your data is encrypted. When you turn the
device on, you are prompted to authenticate using your
fingerprint, PIN, and/or password. After successful
authentication, your data is decrypted. This may take a few
moments depending on the amount of data you chose to have
encrypted. However, encryption runs in the background, and you
can perform other tasks on your iPAQ Pocket PC during this
time.
You can monitor the decryption process in two ways:
■
If you selected Display encryption status on the Encryption
Settings screen during setup, the HP ProtectTools window
displays the decryption status.
■
If you choose not to display this status, the
encryption/decryption process proceeds in the background,
allowing you to use your Pocket PC for other purposes.
User’s Guide
7–8
Using Security Features
■
In either case, a blue lock icon appears in the Taskbar at the
bottom of the Today screen during decryption. When the icon
disappears, decryption is complete. Typically the Pocket PC
responds more slowly during the encryption/decryption
process.
You must authenticate yourself and wait for the decryption
process to complete before synchronizing using Microsoft
ActiveSync. If decryption is not complete before synchronization
begins, ActiveSync may not be initiated. To correct the problem,
disconnect and reconnect the device after decryption is complete.
If you enable Server Synchronization on ActiveSync, it is
recommended that you do not select a Mobile Schedule to
automatically initiate synchronization. Since authentication and
decryption are necessary when the Pocket PC is turned on,
automatic synchronization does not work properly when HP
ProtectTools is enabled. The same problem may also arise when
using other server-based synchronization products.

Infrastructure
This connection mode uses wireless access
points to connect to networks.
Internet Protocol (IP)
Address
A 128-bit number that identifies each sender
or receiver of information that is sent in
packets across the Internet. For example,
when you request an HTML page or send
e-mail, the Internet Protocol part of TCP/IP
includes your IP address in the message. In
this example, this information identifies your
computer as the sender and/or receiver of
information.
Media Access Control
(MAC) Address
A computer’s unique hardware number in a

Wi-Fi Security Protocol Utilities
Your HP iPAQ supports the IEEE 802.1X standard for wireless
encryption for customers whose network supports this feature.
Contact your company’s network administrator to set up the
following features.
802.1X Certificate Enroller
This utility allows you to request a user certificate from a
certificate server. Once the certificate has been received and
stored on your HP iPAQ, you can access the network 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 HP iPAQ 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
your name, password, and the server in which you want to
retrieve the certificate.

with Microsoft Certificate Servers. Alternate Certificate
Authority servers will require a custom enrollment application
which can be developed using the Embedded Visual C 4.0 tool
and the Software Development Kit for Windows Mobile
2003-based Pocket PCs.
LEAP Registration Utility
Cisco Lightweight Extensible Authentication Protocol (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 HP iPAQ Wi-Fi
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 > Connections tab > LEAP.
2. Tap New to create a LEAP profile. A LEAP profile must
contain the following information:
