When the program starts, the local device address is 00:00:00:00:00:00. Please check whether you have properly plug-in your Bluetooth USB dongle or Bluetooth CF card and whether the device is powered up. Bluetooth USB dongles can be detected automatically if they are in the IVT known device list (If you are using a device of a new model, please contact IVT so that the model can be added to the list). Some Bluetooth CF card device cannot be detected automatically. Users need to configure the parameters in the menu Tools | Bluetooth Device... to enable the device. How can I find my Bluetooth device information? On the center ball, my device, right click and select Properties... on the popup menu. In the My Bluetooth Device dialog box, there are device names, device addresses, device manufacturers, device HCI and LMP (Link Manager Protocol) versions and editions. Can't find the remote device you want? First, please check whether the remote device is in discoverable mode. If the remote device is set to non-discoverable, other devices cannot find it. Second, please check whether the remote device is within the radio range. Bluetooth devices have 3 classes. Class 1 devices are high power devices. Their transmission range are 50-100 meters. Class 2 and class 3 devices are low power devices. Their transmission range are 10-20 meters. If you still cannot find the remote device, you can (1) find the device from the history list, so that 70 you can add it directly to the Main Window. Do this via Tools | Add Device from History.... (2) If the device is not in the history list, you can also add a new device directly by inputting the remote device address. Do this via Tools | Add New Device.... Can't find the remote device's services? First, please verify that whether the remote device is in connectable mode. If the remote device is set to non-connectable, other devices cannot connect to it. Second, please verify whether the remote device is within the radio range. Third, please check whether the remote device has connections already. Currently, some Bluetooth devices do not support scatter net. That is, the device has limitations in supporting connection among multi-devices at the same time. It is recommended that users try to connect one to one if the connection cannot be set up. Fourth, please verify whether both sides have input the right Bluetooth passkey if any side is at security level High. The Bluetooth passkey must be the same at both sides. If both sides have set Fixed Passkey (the default passkey) and the passkeys are different, the connection cannot be set up because of the authentication failure. 71 Terms A B C D E F G U V W X Y Z H I J K L M N O P Q R S T A Authentication Authentication is the process of verifying "who" is at the other end of the link. Authentication is performed for devices. In Bluetooth this is achieved by the authentication procedure based on the stored link key or by pairing (entering a PIN). Authorization Authorization is the process of deciding if device X is allowed to access service Y. This is where the concept of "trusted" exists. Trusted devices (authenticated and indicated as "trusted"), are allowed to access services. Mistrusted or unknown devices may require authorization based on user interaction before access to services is granted. B Bluetooth Bluetooth is an open specification for a cutting-edge technology that enables short-range wireless connections between desktop and laptop computers, personal digital assistants, cellular phones, printers, scanners, digital cameras and even home appliances on a globally available band (2.4GHz) for worldwide compatibility. In a nutshell, Bluetooth unplugs your digital peripherals and makes cable clutter a thing of the past. 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 asked for on both connection sides. 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 the connection cannot be set up. 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 devices. This procedure functions in Bluetooth security Mode 2 and applies only to your Bluetooth services. Every Bluetooth service in your BlueSoleil has the setting of 72 authorization. And there is an authorization devices list for every service, which records the devices that you have authorized. The user can change the authorization status for each device. Bluetooth Connection Bluetooth functions are in the model of Client/Server. One Bluetooth device provides services, and another Bluetooth device uses these Bluetooth services. After connection, a Bluetooth link is set up between two devices, and the link is called a Bluetooth connection. Users can disconnect the connection after finishing his job on Bluetooth. Bluetooth Connection Shortcut Connection shortcut is used for saving time in searching devices and browsing services. After a connection is established, it can be saved as a shortcut. The shortcut can be used later to re-establish the connection, without searching the remote Bluetooth devices and browsing services. After a connection is setup, the connection can be saved as a shortcut, which can be used later without searching Bluetooth devices or browsing services. Bluetooth Device Bluetooth devices are addressed in two ways: (1) When referring to the local device configuration, a Bluetooth Device is the local Bluetooth hardware which can be a USB dongles, a UART device, a PCMCIA card or a BCSP device. The user is expected to select the interface of his Bluetooth device in his configuration. (2) When referring to the Bluetooth application, it is the Bluetooth system as a whole, e.g. a Bluetooth modem, Bluetooth mobiles or a Bluetooth PDA etc. My PC 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 between 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 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 the first time starting. 73 Bluetooth Device Inquiry To use Bluetooth, the user has to find the remote device first. The searching procedure is called device inquiry. There are two kinds of inquiry procedure, named 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 Dongle A Bluetooth device which can be added onto a PC or a notebook to make it Bluetooth enabled. Typically a USB device. Bluetooth bonding A user initiates the bonding procedure and enters a passkey to create a paired relationship between two devices. This differs from the authentication procedure where the user is requested to enter a passkey during the establishment of a link. 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, a Bluetooth peripheral input device such as Bluetooth mouse or keyboard can interface with the host PC remotely. Bluetooth Security Bluetooth security is an important part for the wireless communication technology. Illegal access to your computer can 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 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 PC . Otherwise, the Bluetooth passkey is not asked. If authorization is set, the remote device has to be in the authorized devices list. If not, there will be a dialog to ask the user to confirm whether you are going to allow a remote device to use a services of the local device. Bluetooth Service A Bluetooth device may offer certain functions for other Bluetooth devices to use. These functions are called Bluetooth services. 74 For example, a Bluetooth mobile phone can offer 4 services, which include synchronization, dial-up networking, file transfer and serial port. In BlueSoleil, some services are started automatically and other services need to be started manually before using. The user can also stop a service. 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 find the services first. This is called service browse. C Connectable Bluetooth devices can be connectable or non-connectable. When the device is connectable, other devices can connect to it. D DHCP The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is an Internet protocol for automating the configuration of computers that use TCP/IP. E Encryption When a Bluetooth link is encrypted, data are encrypted into unreadable data using a secret key or password before they are sent over the air. Data are decrypted after they reach the remote device. G General Discoverable Bluetooth devices have 3 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. H HID A Human Interface device such as keyboard and mouse. I ICS Internet Connection Sharing. For more detailed information about ICS, please refer to the help topic Internet Connection Sharing of Microsoft Windows. 75 L Limited Discoverable Bluetooth devices have 3 modes: General discoverable, Limited discoverable and Non-discoverable mode. In Limited discoverable mode, a Bluetooth device will respond to a General Inquiry or a Limited Inquiry. LAN Access Point One of entities defined in the LA profiles, the LAN Access Point acts like a router between a Bluetooth piconet and an external network. N NAP (Networking Access Point) A network access point is a unit that contains one or more Bluetooth radio devices and acts as a bridge, proxy, or router between a Bluetooth network and some other network technology (10baseT, GSM, etc). NAT Network address translation, which is used to re-map IP's from one address 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 other device to connect to their computer. Non-discoverable Bluetooth devices have 3 modes: General discoverable, Limited discoverable and Non-discoverable mode. In Non-discoverable mode, a Bluetooth device will not respond to any inquiry so no device can find it. Non-pairable A Bluetooth device can be pairable or non-pairable. When it is non-pairable, it will not accept a bonding request from other devices; P Pairing Devices Pairing allows you to avoid entering access information each time a connection is set up. Paired devices share a unique Link Key, which they exchange each time they connect. PIM Personal Information Management. 76 R Radio Signal Strength Bluetooth works on 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 transferring speed is slow. However, if the two devices are too close and the radio signal is too strong, the Bluetooth data transferring 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 All the other Bluetooth enabled devices are called remote Bluetooth devices in the term of my Bluetooth device. They could be a Bluetooth modem, Bluetooth mobiles or a Bluetooth PDA etc. T Trusted Device server.
