7 LAN Access

7.1 Introduction

The Bluetooth LAN Access Profile (LAP) allows Bluetooth-enabled devices to access the services of a LAN using Point-to-Point Protocol. In this usage model, multiple data terminals use a LAN access point as a wireless connection to a Local Area Network (LAN).

Once connected, data terminals operate as if they are connected to the LAN via dial-up networking and can access all the services provided by the LAN.

The LAN application can be used in the following scenarios:

♦ A computer (or PDA) accesses a Local Area Network via a LAP Server.

♦ A computer (or PDA) accesses a Local Area Network via a LAN access point.

Note: Before using the LAN Access Profile in Windows98/Me, ensure that a Dial-up

Adapter and Windows’s component direct cable are already installed on the computer.

13 Bluetooth Glossary

Bluetooth Authentication Bluetooth authentication is the procedure to verify whether another Bluetooth enabled device has the right to access your computer. During this procedure, a Bluetooth passkey is requested on both sides of the connection. If the passkeys are the same, the authentication procedure is a success and the connection can be setup. If the passkeys are different, then authentication fails and a connection cannot be established.

Bluetooth Authorization Bluetooth authorization is the procedure to verify whether you are going to allow (authorize) other Bluetooth enabled devices to use Bluetooth services on your Bluetooth enabled device. Every Bluetooth service in your BlueSoleil™ has an authorization setting. The authorization devices list for each service records the devices that have been authorized for that service. The user can change the authorization status for each device.

Bluetooth Connection A Bluetooth connection refers to the Bluetooth link that can be set up between two Bluetooth devices. Connected Bluetooth devices have a server/ client relationship. One Bluetooth device provides services and another Bluetooth device uses these Bluetooth services.

Bluetooth Connection Shortcut Connection shortcut is used to save time used in searching for devices and browsing services. Once a connection has been established, it can be saved as a shortcut. The shortcut is then used to re-establish the connection, without having to search for the remote Bluetooth device and required Bluetooth service.

Bluetooth Device Bluetooth Devices can refer to either of the following:

(1) When referring to the local device configuration, a Bluetooth Device is the local

Bluetooth hardware, e.g. USB dongle, UART device, PCMCIA card or BCSP device.

(2) When referring to the Bluetooth application, the Bluetooth device is the Bluetooth system as a whole, e.g. a Bluetooth modem, Bluetooth mobiles or a Bluetooth PDA. A computer together with the BlueSoleil™ and the Bluetooth dongle would also be addressed as a remote Bluetooth device by other Bluetooth devices.

Bluetooth Device Address A unique 48-bit address that distinguishes different

Bluetooth transceivers. Every Bluetooth device has a unique address so that other devices can find it and communicate with it. The address appears in the form of

00:03:20:00:0D:0A.

Bluetooth Device Class According to the Bluetooth standard, every Bluetooth device is assigned a device type, which is represented in the Bluetooth device class. The

Bluetooth device class is three bytes in length in the form of 04:01:00. On the computer side, the class may be Server, Desktop or Laptop. Users will be asked to select it during first time set-up.

Bluetooth Device Inquiry To use Bluetooth, the user has to first find the remote device. The searching procedure is called device inquiry. There are two kinds of inquiry procedure; General Inquiry and Limited Inquiry. General Inquiry will find all the

Bluetooth devices in ‘general discoverable mode’ and ‘limited discoverable mode’. Limited

Inquiry will find only the devices in ‘limited discoverable mode’.

Bluetooth Dial-up Networking This is the implementation of the Bluetooth Dial-up

Networking profile (DUN). Using DUN, Bluetooth devices can dial-up to the Internet via a

Bluetooth modem or a Bluetooth mobile phone.

Bluetooth FAX This is the implementation of the Bluetooth FAX profile (FAX). Using

Bluetooth File Transfer This is the implementation of the Bluetooth File Transfer profile (FTP). Bluetooth File Transfer enables the transfer files between Bluetooth devices.

Bluetooth HCRP This is the implementation of the Bluetooth Hardcopy Cable

Replacement profile (HCRP). HCRP provides services to replace the cables between hosts and peripheral devices with a Bluetooth link. HCRP is mainly used for wireless printing.

Bluetooth Information Synchronization This is the implementation of the Bluetooth

Synchronization profile (SYNC). Using Synchronization, Bluetooth devices can synchronize messages, notes, calendars and cards with each other.

Bluetooth LAN Access This is the implementation of the Bluetooth LAN Access profile

(LAP). Using LAP, Bluetooth devices can access Local Area Network via LAN access points.

Bluetooth Object Push This is the implementation of the Bluetooth Object Push profile

(OPP). Using OPP, Bluetooth devices can transfer messages, notes, calendars and cards with each other.

Bluetooth Passkey In the Bluetooth authentication procedure, a Bluetooth passkey is requested on both connection sides. The same Bluetooth passkey should be input on both sides. If the passkeys are the same, the authentication procedure is successful and connections can be setup. If the passkeys are different, the connection and authentication will fail.

Bluetooth Peripheral Device This is the implementation of the Bluetooth Human

Interface Device profile (HID). By using HID, Bluetooth peripheral input devices such as a

Bluetooth mouse or keyboard, can remotely interface with the host computer.

Bluetooth Personal Area Networking This is the implementation of the Bluetooth

Personal Area Networking profile (PAN). Using PAN, Bluetooth devices can connect to each other to form ad-hoc networks. They can form a TCP/IP network or connect to a

Local Area Network and the Internet.

Bluetooth Printer This is the implementation of the Bluetooth Hard-copy Cable

Replacement profile (HCRP) as a printer. Bluetooth Printer allows Bluetooth devices to wirelessly print documents to a Bluetooth printer.

Bluetooth Security Bluetooth security is an important part of the Bluetooth wireless communication technology. Bluetooth security enables illegal access to your computer to be rejected. There are three levels of security: Low, Medium and High. In Low level, there is no security check. In Medium level, remote Bluetooth devices can browse your services. Security is set on every service. The service can be set to request or not to request for authentication and authorization. If you request for authentication, the remote device will be asked to enter the same passkey as the one in your computer.

Otherwise, the Bluetooth passkey is not requested. If authorization is set, the remote device has to be in the authorized devices list.

Bluetooth Service A Bluetooth device may offer certain functions for other Bluetooth devices to use. These functions are called Bluetooth services. For example, a Bluetooth mobile phone can offer four services, which include synchronization, dial-up networking, file transfer and serial port. In BlueSoleil™, all services need to be started manually before use..

Bluetooth Service Browse A remote Bluetooth device can provide one or more

Bluetooth services. To use the services that the remote device provides, the user has to first find the services. This is called service browse.

Bluetooth Serial Port This is the implementation of the Bluetooth Serial Port profile

(SPP). SPP emulates a serial port over Bluetooth, for the Bluetooth device.

Bonding Bonding is the creation of a relationship between two devices, which are known to each other prior to the bonding procedure. A user initiates the bonding procedure and enters a passkey to create a bond between two devices. This differs from the authentication procedure where the user is requested to enter a passkey during the establishment of the link.

Connectable Bluetooth devices can be connectable or non-connectable. When the device is connectable, other devices can connect to it.

DHCP The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is an Internet protocol for automating the configuration of computers that use TCP/IP.

Bluetooth Dongle A Bluetooth device which can be added onto a computer or notebook to make it Bluetooth enabled, A Bluetooth dongle is typically a USB device.

General Discoverable Bluetooth devices have three modes: General discoverable,

Limited discoverable and Non-discoverable mode. A Bluetooth device will respond to a

General Inquiry if it is in general discoverable or limited discoverable mode.

NAT Network Address Translation (NAT) is used to re-map IP numbers from one range to another range of network addresses.

Non-Connectable A Bluetooth devices can be connectable or non-connectable. When it is non-connectable, other devices cannot connect to it. This is used in BlueSoleil™ only when the user does not want another device to connect to their computer.

Non-discoverable Bluetooth devices have three modes: General discoverable, Limited discoverable and Non-discoverable mode. In Non-discoverable mode, a Bluetooth device will not respond to any inquiry, so another Bluetooth device will not be able to find it.

Non-pairable A Bluetooth device can be pairable or non-pairable. When it is nonpairable, it will not accept a bonding request from other devices.

Pairable A Bluetooth device can be pairable or non-pairable. When it is pairable, it will accept a bonding request from other devices. After the bonding process is finished successfully, two devices are paired. They now form a trusted relationship. There is no need to exchange Bluetooth Passkeys the next time they connect.

Piconet A collection of devices connected via Bluetooth wireless technology in an ad hoc fashion. A piconet starts with two connected devices, such as a portable PC and an

Access Point, and may expand to eight connected devices. All Bluetooth devices are peer units and have identical implementations. However, when establishing a piconet, one unit will act as a master and the other(s) as slave(s) for the duration of the piconet connection. All devices have the same physical channel utilizing the same Frequencyhopping sequence, defined by the master device clock and the Bluetooth Device Address.

Radio Signal Strength Bluetooth operates on the 2.4G ISM band. The radio signal is stronger when the remote device is closer or the remote device has a higher radio output.

The radio signal is weak when the remote device is distant or the remote device has a weak radio output. The strength of the remote device's radio signal affects the quality of the communication of the two Bluetooth devices. When the radio signal is weak, the

Bluetooth data transfer speed is slow. However, if the two devices are too close and the radio signal is too strong, the Bluetooth data transfer speed is also slow because the

"sound" is too loud to "hear". The radio signal strength is always referred to as RSSI in

Bluetooth.

Remote Bluetooth Device My Bluetooth device sees all other Bluetooth enabled devices as remote Bluetooth devices. For example, a Bluetooth modem, Bluetooth mobiles or a Bluetooth PDA .

Start Bluetooth Service Start the selected Bluetooth service. Only after the service is started, can other devices browse the service and connect to it.

Stop Bluetooth Service Stop the selected Bluetooth service. After the service is stopped, other devices cannot browse the service or connect to it. The existing connection will be disconnected.
