Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Information
This product has required the extraction and use of natural resources for its production. It may contain hazardous substances
that could impact health and the environment, if not properly disposed.
In order to avoid the dissemination of those substances in our environment and to diminish the pressure on the natural resources,
we encourage you to use the appropriate take-back systems for product disposal. Those systems will reuse or recycle most of
the materials of the product you are disposing in a sound way.

The crossed out wheeled bin symbol informs you that the product should not be disposed of along with municipal waste
and invites you to use the appropriate separate take-back systems for product disposal.
If you need more information on the collection, reuse, and recycling systems, please contact your local or regional waste
administration.
You may also contact your supplier for more information on the environmental performances of this product.
Pacemakers, Hearing Aids and Other Electrically Powered Devices
Most manufacturers of medical devices adhere to the IEC 601-1-2 standard. This standard requires devices to operate properly
in an EM Field with a strength of 3V/m over a frequency range of 26 to 1000MHz. The maximum allowable field strength emitted
by the Dolphin is 0.3V/m according to Subpart B of Part 1 of the FCC rules. Therefore, the Dolphin RF has no effect on medical
devices that meet the IEC specification.
Microwaves
The radio in the Dolphin RF terminal operates on the same frequency band as a microwave oven. Therefore, if you use a
microwave within range of the Dolphin RF terminal you may notice performance degradation in your wireless network. However,
both your microwave and your wireless network will continue to function. The Dolphin Batch terminal does not contain a radio,
and therefore, is not affected by microwave ovens.

!
Dolphin 7600 devices ship with a screen protector already installed over the touch screen lens to help prevent
damage to the touch screen. Do NOT remove this screen protector before initial use. Hand Held Products
recommends using screen protectors, especially for applications that require high-volume interfacing with the
touch screen.
For touch screen input, use the stylus included with the terminal or your finger. The method you choose depends
on which one is most appropriate for your application. While there is a great deal of variation in different applications,
for buttons or icons that are close together, you generally achieve greater accuracy with the stylus; see Using the

Battery Power
The Dolphin 7600 features intelligent battery technology with two types of battery power:
•
•
The main battery pack on the back panel (see Main Battery Pack on page 3-11)
The backup battery located inside the terminal (see Internal Backup Battery on page 3-13)
Both batteries work together to prevent data loss when the terminal is used over long periods of time.
Both batteries must be charged to full capacity before using the Dolphin 7600 for the first time!
Main Battery Pack
!
Use only the Li-ion battery packs provided by Hand Held Products. The use of any battery pack not sold/manufactured by Hand
Held Products in a Dolphin terminal will void your warranty and may result in damage to the Dolphin terminal or bat
There are two Li-ion battery packs available for the Dolphin 7600:
Standard
Li-ion 3.7V/2200mAh/8.1Wh
Optional
Li-ion 3.7V/3240mAh/12.0Wh
The Li-ion battery packs are the primary power source for the Dolphin terminal as well as the internal backup battery.
Changing the Main Battery Pack
Before installing a battery pack, press the Blue + Backlight keys to put the terminal in Suspend Mode (see page 3-14) so that
operations are suspended before removing the main power source. Always put the terminal in suspend mode prior to changing
the battery.
Charging Options
When the battery is installed in the terminal, you can insert the terminal into any one of the following peripherals:
• Dolphin HomeBase (see page 9-1)
• Dolphin Charge/Comm Cable; Connecting the USB Cable (see page 6-2)
• Dolphin Power Cable (see page 2-1)
To fully charge the Li-ion battery before installing in the terminal, use the
• Dolphin QuadCharger (see page 10-1)
Charging Time
Both Li-ion battery packs require four hours to charge to full capacity.
Managing Main Battery Power
Data and files saved on the Dolphin terminal may be stored in RAM memory; therefore, maintain a continuous power supply to
the terminal to help prevent data loss. When you remove a battery pack, insert another charged battery pack in the Dolphin. If
the main battery pack is low, insert the terminal into a charging peripheral to power the terminal and begin recharging the battery.
Dolphin® 7600 Series User’s Guide
Rev B
1/17/2007
3 - 11
Note: If the main battery is low and the terminal is in suspend mode, pressing the SCAN button does not wake the Dolphin
terminal; you must replace the discharged battery with a fully charged battery.
Checking Battery Power
Power icons appear in the command bar at the bottom of the window. For example,
indicates a low battery. Double-tap on
this icon at any time to open the Power system setting. The Battery tab opens displaying the charge status of both the main and
backup batteries.
Note: To manually check battery power, also tap Start > Settings > Control Panel > double-tap Power
.
Storage Guidelines
To maintain optimal battery performance, follow these storage guidelines:
• Avoid storing batteries outside the specified range of -4 to 122° F (-20 to 50°C) or in extremely high humidity.
• For prolonged storage, do not keep batteries stored in a charger that is connected to a power source.
Guidelines for Battery Use and Disposal
The following are general guidelines for the safe use and disposal of batteries:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Use only the battery supplied, recommended, or approved by Hand Held Products.
Replace defective batteries immediately; using a defective battery could damage the Dolphin terminal.
Never throw a used battery in the trash. It contains heavy metals and should be recycled according to local guidelines.
Don’t short-circuit a battery or throw it into a fire. It can explode and cause severe personal injury.
Excessive discharge damages a battery. Recharge the battery when your terminal indicates low battery power.
Although your battery can be recharged many times, it will eventually be depleted. Replace it after the battery is unable to
hold an adequate charge.
• If you are not sure the battery or charger is working properly, please send it to Hand Held Products or an authorized Hand
Held Products service center for inspection.

Internal Backup Battery
Located inside the terminal, the backup battery is a 2.4V nickel metal hydride (NiMH) battery.
The internal backup battery prevents the terminal from being reset when you remove the main battery pack. This battery retains
RAM data and allows the real-time clock to remain operational for up to 30 minutes. If the terminal is left without the main battery
pack for more than 30 minutes, the internal backup battery discharges and needs to be recharged to function according to
specifications.
Note: Even if the internal backup battery fails, data and programs stored in Flash memory (IPSM) or an optional SD card are
not lost. However, the terminal automatically cold boots when you install a fully charged battery pack and you need to
reset the real-time clock.
Charging
The internal backup battery charges off the main battery pack and requires eight hours charge time to backup RAM data for 30
minutes. You can begin using the Dolphin terminal after charging the main battery for four hours; however, the internal backup
battery will continue to charge off the main battery.
To ensure that the internal backup battery functions properly, maintain a consistent power supply for the first eight hours of
terminal operation. This power supply can be external power (using a charging peripheral) or an installed, charged battery pack
or a combination of both.
Guidelines
Follow these guidelines to maximize the life of the Dolphin’s internal backup battery:
• Keep a charged Li-ion battery pack in the Dolphin terminal.
• Keep the Dolphin terminal connected to a power source when the terminal is not in use.

Resetting the Terminal
There are two ways to reset the Dolphin terminal: a soft reset and a hard reset.
Soft Reset (Warm Boot)
A soft reset re-boots the device without losing RAM data.
You would perform a soft reset 1) when the terminal fails to respond, 2) after installing software applications that require a reboot,
or 3) after making changes to certain system settings.
1. Press and hold Red
+ ESC
for approximately 5 seconds. The screen turns white and the decode and scan LEDs
flash for approximately three seconds.
2. When the reset is complete, the Desktop appears.
Hard Reset (Cold Boot)
!
A hard reset erases all of the data and applications stored in RAM memory and launches Autoinstall, which re-initializes the
terminal.
Hard resets automatically launch a soft reset as part of the boot process.
1. Press and hold Red
+ TAB
for approximately 5 seconds. The screen turns white and the decode and scan LEDs
light for approximately three seconds.
2. The terminal re-initializes, which re-installs all programs stored in the \IPSM\Autoinstall folder.
Note: Set the time and date after each hard reset to ensure that the system clock is accurate. Tap the date on the command bar
to open the Clock setting and set the time and date.
Suspend Mode
Suspend mode suspends terminal operation. The terminal appears to be “off” when in suspend mode. The terminal is
programmed to go into suspend mode automatically when inactive for a specified period of time. You can set this time period in
the Power setting.
To Put the Terminal in Suspend Mode
Press the Blue
+ Backlight
keys.
Note: You should always put the terminal in suspend mode when you change the battery pack; see Changing the Main Battery
Pack on page 3-11.
To Resume Terminal Operation
To resume terminal operation (or “wake” the terminal from suspend mode),
• Press the Blue
+ Backlight
keys.
OR
• Press the Scan key
SCAN
.
Troubleshooting Suspend/Resume
If the terminal does not wake when you press the Scan key, the main battery might be too low to resume operation. To check,
remove the battery and install a fully charged battery or connect the terminal to a Dolphin charging peripheral.

Activating the Engine
SCAN
When a scanning application is open, press the Scan key
to activate the image engine. You can also press one of the
side buttons (see Side Button on page 3-5), which are programmed to activate the image engine in a scanning application by
default.
Using Demos
Dolphin Demos are software utilities loaded on all Dolphin terminals that demonstrate the advanced features of the terminal.
There are two Demos feature the image engine: Image Demo and Scan Demo.
To access these demos, tap Start > Programs > Demos,
• Select Scan Demo to verify decoding, or
• Select Image Demo to verify imaging.
For more information about Demos, refer to the Dolphin Demos User’s Guide, which is available for download from
www.handheld.com.
LEDs
The LEDs in the center of both keyboards (for location, see LEDs on page 4-1) light when using the image engine.
Scan LED
The LED on the right lights red when you press the scan trigger in scanning applications.
Decode LED
The LED on the left lights green when a scanned bar code is successfully decoded.
Decoding
The Dolphin terminal supports two types of image decoding: full-area imaging and Advanced Linear Decoding (ALD).
Full-area Imaging
Full-area imaging means that the Dolphin terminal support omni-directional aiming, which means that a positive
read can be obtained from many positions. For details, see Omni-Directional Scanning Positions on page 5-4.
ALD
ALD provides fast reading of linear (1D) and stacked linear bar codes (PDF417). For the best read, the aiming
pattern should be centered horizontally across the bar code. When ALD is enabled, the reader does not read matrix
or postal codes.
To Decode a Bar Code
1. Tap Start > Programs > Demos > Scan Demo.
2. Position the Dolphin terminal over one of the sample bar codes on page 5-4.
A range of 4–10 inches (10–25 cm) from the bar code is recommended.
3. Project the aiming brackets by pressing and holding the Scan key. The Scan LED lights red.
4. Center the aimer crosshair over the bar code. The aiming beam should be oriented in line with the bar code to achieve
optimal decoding; Omni-Directional Scanning Positions, page 5-4
5. When the bar code is successfully decoded, the decode LED lights green and the terminal beeps.

Omni-Directional Scanning Positions
The high-vis aiming pattern frames the bar code to provide you with the best scanning performance.
Note: To achieve the best read, the aiming beam should be centered horizontally across the bar code.
The aiming pattern is smaller when the terminal is held closer to the code and larger when the terminal is held farther from the
code. Symbologies with smaller bars or elements (mil size) should be read closer to the unit whereas larger bars or elements
(mil size) should be read farther from the unit.

Capturing Images
The image-capture process is an intuitive, split-second operation for experienced users. By following basic guidelines, however,
new users can easily develop their own technique and, with practice, quickly learn to adapt to different application environments.
Image Preview
When the imaging process is initiated, the touch screen displays a preview of the object. This is a live video image
of what the imager is currently viewing and has a slightly degraded appearance compared to the captured image.
This is normal; the captured image has a higher resolution.
File Formats
The Dolphin terminal is capable of saving images in a number of industry-standard file formats such as *.bmp, *.jpg
and *.png. The default file format for images is a grayscale *.jpg.
File Size
Digital images have a maximum image size of 640 x 480 pixels and may have up to a 256 grayscale image
definition. The image quality and related file size are determined by the data compression method used by the
software application used to take the image. The average size of the image file is approximately 4–8K. However,
the size of the image depends on image content, the more complex the content, the larger the file size.
Taking an Image
1. Tap Start > Programs > Demos > Image Demo.
2. Point the Dolphin terminal at the object.
3. Press the Scan key to activate the engine. The touch screen displays a preview of the object.
4. Adjust the terminal’s position until the preview on the screen appears as you want it to appear in the image.
5. Hold the terminal still and release the Scan key.
The touch screen flashes, and the captured image appears on the screen.
6. By default, the image is saved to the My Device folder (from the Desktop, tap My Device
To save the image to another location, tap File > Save As.
).
High-Vis Aiming Pattern
If your Dolphin terminal is configured with the 5300SR imager, you can enable the aiming pattern for imaging in the Image Demo
application.
1. Tap Start > Demos > Imaging Demo > Options menu > Aimer.
2. The aiming pattern is now enabled for imaging.
Uploading Images
Image files can be transmitted to a host workstation via
• Microsoft ActiveSync and a Dolphin communication peripheral

Communication
Communication Options
Dolphin terminals offer several communication options including Microsoft ActiveSync, infrared, and wireless radios.
I/O Connector (Wired Communication)
The mechanical connector on the bottom panel (see I/O Connector on page 3-8) connects the terminal to various
Dolphin communication peripherals that connect to a host workstation via USB (1.1 or higher), thus enabling
ActiveSync communication.
For more information, see ActiveSync Communication on page 6-3.
Wireless Radios (Wireless Communication)
Dolphin 7600 terminals can be equipped with an 802.11b/g or Bluetooth radio or a combination of these radios.
For more information, see Connecting the Terminal to a Wireless Network on page 6-6.
IrDA Port (Wireless Communication)
The IrDA port enables the Dolphin to transmit data via pulses of infrared light to and from other IrDA-compliant
devices, such as printers, workstations, and even other Dolphin terminals.
For more information, see Infrared Communication on page 6-7.
Installing Additional Software
Dolphin terminals ship with the operating system, radio drivers, and custom Hand Held Products software loaded onto the device.
These are the default programs that install when your terminal first boots up. You can install additional software programs to the
terminal provided that the following parameters are met:
• the software program was created for a Windows CE device.
• The terminal has enough memory to store and run the program.
• The program has an *.exe, *.cab, or *.dll extension.
When selecting programs, verify that the program and version of the program are designed for the Windows CE 5.0 and the

ActiveSync Communication
To synchronize, ActiveSync 4.1 or higher must be installed and configured for the appropriate communication type on the host
workstation and the Dolphin terminal. Dolphin terminals ship with ActiveSync already installed. Therefore, if ActiveSync is already
installed on the host workstation, you just need to connect the Dolphin terminal to the host workstation (via Dolphin peripheral)
to initiate communication.
If ActiveSync 4.1 or higher is not installed on the host workstation, install it from the Microsoft Companion CD that came with the
Dolphin terminal. Insert the CD into the CD-ROM drive of the host workstation and click the yellow arrow, then Start Here, and
follow the directions on your screen.
Note: You can also download the most current version of ActiveSync from www.microsoft.com and install.
!
When communicating via ActiveSync, your terminal must be connected to the host workstation with a communication peripheral
sold/manufactured by Hand Held Products, such as the Dolphin HomeBase or Dolphin Charge/Communication cable. Use of any
peripheral not sold/manufactured by Hand Held Products may damage your terminal and will void the warranty.
Communication Types
The Dolphin 7600 supports the following types of communication via ActiveSync through its I/O Connector (see page 3-8) on the
bottom panel:
USB
The USB cable and hardware peripherals allow the Dolphin terminal to communicate with a
workstation or to networked through a USB hub. The Dolphin terminal supports full-speed USB
communication (USB 1.1); maximum data transfer rate is 12 Mbps. The Dolphin terminal defaults to
USB communication out of the box.
RS-232
The RS-232 cable allows the Dolphin terminal to communicate with a workstation, modem, or any
RS-232 device. Maximum data transfer rate is 115 Kbps.

Managing the 802.11b/g Radio
Overview
The Dolphin 7600 has an optional 2.4 GHz 802.11b/g WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) radio that uses Direct Sequence
Spread Spectrum (DSSS) technology. The radio is interoperable with other 802.11b/g Wi-Fi-compliant products including access
points (APs), PCs via PC card adapters and other wireless portable devices.
Server-Assigned IP Addresses
Please note that all server-assigned IP addresses use Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).

Configuring the 802.11b/g Radio
The Dolphin 7600 contains the Cisco AEGIS Client® (the Client), a comprehensive IEEE 802.1X tool to set up the on-board
802.11b/g radio. The Client is a standards-based implementation of IEEE 802.1X and can be configured to work with almost any
network equipment–wired or wireless–that supports the 802.1X authentication standard. The Client is interoperable with 802.1Xcapable wireless APs and authentication servers including Microsoft's IAS and Cisco's ACS.
The Client uses public key authentication and encryption between Wireless APs (WAP) and roaming stations to exchange
dynamic Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) keys. In addition, network managers can control 802.1X user profiles from a centralized
RADIUS server or, in the case of TTLS, from a RADIUS Diameter or other AAA servers. The Client supports both wireless
(802.11b/g) and ethernet interfaces.
Supported Protocols
Authentication
The Client supports the following authentication methods according to the 802.1X protocols:
•
•
•
•
•
MD5
EAP TLS
EAP TTLS
Cisco LEAP and PEAP
Microsoft PEAP
Encryption
The Client supports the following encryptions methods:
•
•
WEP (64-bit and 128-bit)
TKIP
The Client can also configure 802.11b/g with no authentication and no encryption; see Associating With Open APs on page 7-16.
Required Network Configuration Information
Because the Client accesses a network that is protected by the IEEE 802.1X protocol, you must configure EAP data
communication to match your network server parameters. If the EAP configuration doesn’t match your network configuration, you
can’t access the network. Therefore, make sure you have the correct network server parameters on hand when you configure
the client.
Opening the Client
Single-tap the icon in the command bar.
The Client opens in Start Mode, which means that the 802.1X radio starts transmitting a signal. For more information about the
main window, see Main Window on page 7-3.

If the icon is not yellow, red or green, then either the ports are not being controlled by 802.1X, or there is no authentication
activity on the controlled ports. The absence of yellow, red or green may also indicate that the network access server is not
an 802.1X aware device.
Blue
There is no radio activity. The port may not be connected to an 802.1X-aware entity.
Note: If you are setting up the 802.11b/g radio to run without authentication and
without encryption, this icon does not change from the standard blue; see
Associating With Open APs on page 7-16.
Gray
The port is not in use or is disabled. Either the Client isn’t running, or the port is not
bound to the 802.1X protocol.
Orange
The port is associated, but there is no response to 802.11b/g packets.
If using WEP without 802.1x authentication, this will be the final state when the
connection is complete. If using 802.1x authentication, it is either a transient
condition or can indicate that attempts to authenticate have timed out as there was
no response to 802.1X packets.

Protocol Tab
The Protocol tab configures parameters that apply to all the networks the selected port connects to.
Field
Description
Protocol Settings
These are the timer intervals and retry settings defined in the 802.1X standard. They determine how
long the supplicant state machine will wait in a given state. These parameters shouldn’t be modified
without an understanding of the supplicant state machine. For more information about the supplicant
state machine, obtain its 802.1X protocol specification.
The parameters are:
• Authentication Timeout—The period of time the Client remains in the authenticating or acquired
state without receiving a response from the AP or switch.
• Held Timeout—The period of time the Client remains in the held state after failing authentication.
• Start Timeout—The period of time the Client remains in the connecting state before restarting
when there is no response.
• Number of Start Attempts—The number of times the Client restarts before giving up. At that point,
the Client then defaults to the authenticated state, but there will be no network connectivity because
the protocol exchange was never completed.
Display EAP
notifications
Specifies that the EAPOL notification message will be displayed to the user. An authenticator may
use such notification to inform you, for example, about a near password expiration. However, some
authenticators send chatty and annoying notifications that may, for the convenience of the user, be
suppressed. Note that all notifications are written to the event log even if they are not displayed.
Renew IP address
Initiates a DHCP request to obtain a dynamic IP address after a successful authentication, but only if
the client detects that the connected network (the SSID) has changed. The result is that renewal
should not occur upon re-authentication, but does occur at boot or when connecting to a different
network.
If you have a slow authenticator, you may wish to enable this option when configuring the service
because a slow authenticator may prevent you from getting a DHCP-assigned IP address upon bootup. This option is ignored if the given adapter has a static IP address.

Configuring a Network Profile
You can configure a network based on an AP in range, create a new network, or modify the default (see page 7-7) network. Both
methods start on the Wireless Networks Tab (see page 7-7) and open the following tabs:
• Profile Info Tab on page 7-9
• WEP Mgmt Tab on page 7-10
• WPA Settings Tab on page 7-11
Note: The settings on these tab windows are interrelated. This means that selecting one may disable access to others.
To configure a network to an AP in range, double-tap one of the networks in the Configured Networks list (to make sure the AP
you want is in the Configured Networks list, select it in the Available Networks list and tap Move to Configured.)
Double-tab the network or leave it selected and tap Properties. The Profile Info Tab (see page 7-9) opens.

Enter the credentials used to authenticate a user.
Field
Description
Profile
Multiple user credential profiles can be created for use when the user
roams from one network to another. Select a profile from the list and
configure the profile in the fields that follow.
• Tapping Add permits new profiles to be added to the list. A window
appears where you can enter a name for the new profile.
• Enter a Profile name and tap OK. The name entered appears in
the Profile drop-down list.
• Tapping Delete deletes authentication profiles. To be deleted, a
profile cannot be assigned to a configured network.
Identity
This is the 802.1X identity supplied to the authenticator. The identity value can be up to 63 ASCII
characters and is case-sensitive. For tunneled authentication protocols such as TTLS and PEAP, this
identity (called the Phase 1 identity) is sent outside the protection of the encrypted tunnel. Therefore,
this field should not contain a true identity, but the identity “anonymous” and any desired realm (e.g.
[email protected]) instead. For TTLS and PEAP, true user credentials (Phase 2 identity) are
entered in the Tunneled authentication section.
When used with PEAP and the .NET Enterprise Server Version 5.2, this field must contain the identity
used in both Phase I and Phase II. The Phase II identity field is ignored.
Password
This is the password used for MD5-Challenge or LEAP authentication. It may contain up to 63 ASCII
characters and is case-sensitive. Asterisks appear instead of characters for enhanced security.

Dolphin® 7600 Series User’s Guide
Field
Description
Authentication
type
This is the authentication method to be used:
• MD5-Challenge
• TLS
• LEAP
• TTLS
• PEAP
Your network administrator should let you know the protocols supported by the RADIUS server. The
RADIUS server sits on the network and acts as a central credential repository for Access Servers that
receive the radio signals and ultimately block or allow users to attach to the network.
Use certificate
Specifies the certificate passed to the server for verification during authentication. To appear in this list,
certificates must be installed and recognized by both the operating system and the Client; see
Certificates on page 7-17.
A certificate is required for TLS, optional for TTLS and PEAP, and unused by MD5 and LEAP. Therefore,
this option becomes active only when TLS, TTLS, or PEAP is selected as the Authentication type.
To select a client certificate, tap Change and select the certificate from the list that appears. The Issued
to column should match the Identity field and the user ID on the authentication server used by the
authenticator.
Your certificate must be valid with respect to the authentication server. This generally means that the
authentication server must accept the issuer of your certificate as a Certificate Authority.
When obtaining a client certificate, do not enable strong private key protection. If you enable strong
private key protection for a certificate, you will need to enter an access password for the certificate each
time this certificate is used.
Tunneled authentication area
Tunneled authentication parameters are used by only by TLS, TTLS and PEAP protocols, in Phase 2 of authentication, and
after the secure tunnel has been established.
Note: TLS uses a certificate instead of a username and password for tunneled authentication. Therefore, if you select TLS,
the Use certificate box selects automatically (tap Change to select the certificate) and the Tunneled authentication
area remains inactive.
Identity
The user identity used in Phase 2 authentication. The identity specified may contain up to 63 ASCII
characters, is case-sensitive and takes the form of a Network Access Identifier, consisting of <name of
the user>@<user’s home realm>. The user’s home realm is optional and indicates the domain to which
the tunneled transaction is to be routed.
Because Microsoft .NET Enterprise Server Version 5.2 does not use this parameter for PEAP, This field
will have no effect for PEAP at this time. Phase 1 identity is used instead.
Password
The password used for the tunneled authentication protocol specified. It may contain up to 63 ASCII
characters and is case-sensitive. Asterisks appear instead of characters for enhanced security.
Protocol
This parameter specifies the authentication protocol operating within the secure tunnel.
The following protocols are currently supported for TTLS:
• EAP-MD5
• CHAP
• PAP
• MS-CHAP
• MS-CHAP-V2
The following protocols are currently supported for PEAP:
• EAP-MSCHAP-V2
• EAP-TLS
• Generic Token Card

Server Tab
The Server tab controls how the Client authenticates the server that handles the 802.1X protocol on the network side. This
applies only to the TLS, TTLS, and PEAP authentication methods and is used to tell the Client what server credentials to accept
from the authentication server to verify the server. The Client uses this information to verify that the Client is communicating with
a trusted server.
Field

This is the certificate authority used during TLS/TTLS/PEAP message exchange. Any Trusted
CA is the default selection and means that any certificate authority can be used during
authentication.
Both trusted intermediate certificate authorities and root authorities whose certificates exist in
the system store are available for selection in the drop-down list.
Allow intermediate
certificates
This option enables unspecified certificates to be in the server certificate chain between the
server certificate and the certificate authority selected in the Certificate issuer must be dropdown list.
This option also allows the server certificate received during negotiation to be issued directly by
the certificate authority or by one of its intermediate certificate authorities. If not selected, the
selected Certificate issuer must have directly issued the server certificate.
Server name must be
This is either the server name or the domain the server belongs to, depending on which option
is selected below the text field.
During authentication, this name will be compared to the server certificate’s Subject: CN field.
Must match exactly
When selected, the server name entered must match the server name found on the certificate
exactly.
Must contain domain

Certificates
During configuration, you may have specified one or two certificates to use during the authentication process.
Certificate Requirements
The specified identity should match the Issued to field in the certificate and should be registered on the authentication server
that is used by the authenticator (i.e., a RADIUS server). In addition, your certificate must be valid on the authentication server.
This requirement depends on the authentication server and generally means that the authentication server must know the issuer
of your certificate as a trusted Certificate Authority (CA).
If the selected certificate does require a password or pass phrase to decode the private key, enter the password or pass phrase
in the Certificate Pass Phrase field in the Meetinghouse Certificate Installer. This value will be encrypted when the configuration
is saved. However, on some systems, there may not be a certificate.
Note: Client or CA certificates can be imported from *.cer (same as *.der), *.p7b, or *.pfx files.
Installing Certificates with the Meetinghouse Certificate Installer
CertAdd is a separate utility that allows certificates to be selected and installed on the device for the Client. This method ensures
that the certificate is recognized by the Client.
1. Download the certificate file to the device; see Installing a Root Certificate on page 7-17.
2. Tap to Start > Programs > Meetinghouse Certificate Installer.
3. Navigate to the certificate location. Tap and hold on a certificate in the list.
4. Tap OK on the popup message and the certificate is loaded into the correct certificate store.
5. Tap the Server Tab (see page 7-15) and verify that the certificate appears in the Certificate issuer must be drop-down list.
6. To verify that the operating system recognizes this certificate, see Installing a Root Certificate on page 7-17.
Installing a Root Certificate
This method ensures that the certificate is recognized by the operating system. Sometimes, if a certificate is not functioning
properly, it can mean that the operating system doesn’t recognize it even if the Client does. Follow these steps to verify that the
operating system recognizes the certificate.
1. Save the certificate to the device. If no error appears when you save the certificate, it was most likely saved to the device.
Note: To make sure that the certificate persists through cold boots, install the certificate to the \IPSM folder.
2. To verify that the certificate is recognized by the operating system, tap Start > Settings > Control Panel > Certificates
.
3. This list displays all the certificates recognized by the operating system. If your certificate appears in this list, the operating
system recognizes it.
4. Scroll through the list until you see the certificate you installed. After you have identified your certificate in the list, tap OK to
close.

I cannot attach to my old network that does not
support 802.1x authentication, but is using
WEP encryption.
• On the Wireless Networks Tab (see page 7-7), verify that the desired
SSID is at the top of the Configured Networks list so that it’s accessed
first.
• See WEP Encryption Without 802.1X Authentication on page 7-16.
I made changes, but they do not appear to have
taken effect.
Always tap OK before exiting a window you have changed.
Then, on the main window, tap Client > Restart to restart the Client.
How do I enable peer-to-peer (ad-hoc) mode to
have two clients communicate without an AP?
• On the Wireless Networks window, move a network to the Configured
Network list.
• On the Profile Info tab, give each side the same network name (SSID).
• Select Peer-to-Peer Group (ad hoc mode) and Do active scan.
• On the WEP management section, select Use key for data
encryption and enter an identical key for both clients.
• Verify that this network profile is the first (or only) one in the
Configured Network list and try to restart both clients at roughly the
same time.

Dolphin HomeBase
Overview
As the hub of your Dolphin 7600 system, the Dolphin HomeBase charging and communication cradle supports full-speed USB
1.1 communication with a workstation.
Battery Charging
The HomeBase completes a full charge of the main battery pack in less than four hours.
In addition to charging, the HomeBase powers the intelligent battery charging system in the terminal that protects the battery
from being damaged by overcharging. The terminal senses when a battery pack is fully charged and automatically switches to a
trickle charge that maintains the battery at full capacity.
As a result, Dolphin terminals may be stored in the HomeBase indefinitely without damage to the terminals, battery packs, or
peripherals.
Communication
With USB port, the data transmission rate goes up to 12 Mbps.
HomeBases cannot be physically connected to each other–sometimes referred to as “daisy-chaining”–but can be networked
together via serial or USB hubs.
Convenient Storage
The battery charging system makes the HomeBase a safe and convenient storage receptacle for your Dolphin terminal.
Capacity
The HomeBase holds one Dolphin 7600 terminal and charges its battery pack.
Power Supply
The power cable that ships with each unit (see Charge the Batteries on page 2-1) also powers the Dolphin HomeBase.
!
Use only the peripherals, power cables, and power adapters from Hand Held Products. Use of peripherals, cables, or power
adapters not sold/manufactured by Hand Held Products will void the warranty and may damage the terminal.
!
Use only the Li-ion battery packs provided by Hand Held Products. The use of any battery pack not sold/manufactured by Hand
Held Products in a Dolphin terminal will void your warranty and may result in damage to the Dolphin terminal or bat

Battery Charging
Inserting and Removing Battery Packs
To insert a battery pack, place the end of the battery without the locking tab into the bottom of the charging pocket and snap the
battery into place with a hinging motion.
To remove a battery pack, push the locking tab down and pull the battery away from the charging slot with a hinging motion.
Charging Process
The QuadCharger charges Dolphin 7600 Li-ion battery packs in four hours. Each charging slot works independently of the other
three. As battery packs charge, the charging circuitry follows the two-step charging process (CC-CV) that is recommended for
Li-Ion batteries. The process monitors changes in temperature, current, and voltage.
Temperature
The QuadCharger charges Dolphin 7600 Li-ion battery packs in four hours when charged within the recommended temperature
range of 50° to 95° F (10° to 35°C). Temperature has a significant effect on charging. For best results, battery packs should be
at room temperature before inserting in the QuadCharger.
!
When the battery temperature exceeds 40°C, the QuadCharger may exceed the stated four-hour charge time. The
QuadCharger stops charging if the battery temperature is greater than 40°C but will begin charging again when the battery
temperature is less than 40°C.
To Charge Batteries in the QuadCharger
1. Supply the QuadCharger with power and turn the power switch on.
2. Insert batteries into the appropriate slots.
The Status LED for each slot turns orange to indicate that the battery is properly seated and has begun a charge cycle.
3. When the Status LED turns green, the battery in the slot has completed charging.
Recommendations for Storing Batteries
To maintain top performance from batteries, follow these storage guidelines:
• Avoid storing batteries outside of the specified temperature range of -4 to 122° F (-20 to 50°C) or in extremely high humidity.
• For prolonged storage, do not keep batteries stored in a charger that is connected to a power source.

Mounting the QuadCharger
The QuadCharger should be mounted on a dry, stable surface such as a desktop or workbench, or a flat, vertical surface such
as a wall.
Mounting Location
When choosing a location for the QuadCharger:
• Keep in mind that the mounting location must allow users easy access to power switch and power connector.
• Do NOT place the QuadCharger in an enclosed space because restricted air flow can cause the temperature to elevate, which
can effect charging. For more information, see Battery Charging on page 10-3.

If you encounter problems with the QuadCharger, refer to chart below for possible solutions. If problems persist, please contact
Technical Assistance (see page 11-2).
Problem
Issue
The Status LED does not come on when
I insert a battery pack into a slot.
Check the power connections on the Dolphin QuadCharger; make sure
the POWER switch is ON and the battery pack is properly seated.
The Status LED lights red during
charging.
Try to charge the battery in one of the other charging slots. If the red
Status LED comes on again, then the problem is associated with the
battery pack. If the red status stays with the charging slot, the problem is
associated with the charging circuitry.
The Status LED lights red and stays on
without a battery in the charging slot.
An error occurred during the self-diagnostic test for that particular
charging pocket. Call Hand Held Products Product Service and Repair
(see page 11-1) to request an RMA.
