NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
FEATURE HIGHLIGHTS
Multiple host sessions
Supports up to four simultaneous pre-defined host sessions. Interactive,
per-session configuration settings are maintained. Users may connect with
any permutation of 3270, 5250 or VT host sessions. Hotkeys and menu
context are available to jump between these sessions.
Custom Keyboard mapping
Physical keys on the device can be re-mapped to invoke any application
operation or host key action. Keys can be remapped to:
•
another key
•
an application operation such as “Print”
•
a host specific key such as “F4” or “Field Exit”
•
a text string such as “My input string”
•
a null operation (to disable the key)
Integrated Barcode Scanner Control
CETerm is device tailored for the DT-X10 and the IT-500 terminals. It
directly interfaces with the barcode scan engine to deliver a more
optimized performance and control over the decoded data.
Internationalization: Code Pages
All popular Western European code pages are now supported for IBM
emulations, for display and input of language specific special characters.
Examples of supported code pages are Swedish, French, German, Italian,
Spanish, and Finnish etc.
Multi-Byte Character set: Asia Pacific language support
Support for multi-byte character set (MBCS) languages, such as Chinese
(Traditional and Simplified), Japanese, Korean, Thai etc, is provided only

Device Lockdown / Access Control
Lockdown allows administrators to prevent users from exiting the CETerm
application and run any other application on the device. You can hide the
Windows CE “Start” button and bar an also the CETerm application menu
bar so that the whole device display area is occupied by the terminal
display. Administrators can “lock out” users from being able to change the
application configuration.
Configurable KeyBar
The configurable KeyBar allows users to customize a set of soft buttons to
control and invoke any host specific keys or emulator operation. Users can
select from a set of pre-defined KeyBar templates. In addition they can also
configure up to four custom templates of their own. Users can navigate
between a selected set of KeyBar templates.

Macro Record and Playback
CETerm has the capability to record input keystrokes for a connected host
session and subsequently play the recorded macros / scripts for easy,
automated navigation through multiple host screens. A single macro may
be recorded and associated with a host session. This macro may also be
auto-launched upon a session connection to get "auto-logon" capability.
Printing
CETerm directly integrates with the device Bluetooth communication stack
for printing. CETerm can automatically “self discover” the devices for
printing.
VT emulation supports complete pass through printing. Print screen
capability is supported for all terminal emulations. Manufacturer proprietary
printing, such as "Intermec Extended Commands", is also supported. The
following printer connections are supported:
•
Tethered serial printers
•
IrDA printers
•
Integrated printers
•
Bluetooth printers
Auto-start Sessions
Users can configure CETerm to automatically launch one or more host
sessions when it is started.
Automatic login
Pre-recorded macros can be configured to launch automatically when a
session is started and log into the host system. Users can configure their
devices to go from "cold boot" to a host application screen without a single
stylus tap.
Page 8
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
HotSpots
A HotSpot is an invisible field on the terminal screen where a user can tap
with a stylus to execute a function. A Hotspot thus allows a user to interact
with the host application with minimal needs for the special key pads.
Instead the user can directly tap on the text in the terminal display to invoke
the desired operation. CETerm support HotSpots for 3270, 5250 and VT
host sessions.
Screen Panning
Screen Panning allows an additional row and column on the display by
providing an alternative to horizontal and vertical scroll bars. Imagine the
host application screen as a large sheet under the display on the handheld
device. Screen Panning allows users to "tap" and "drag" this sheet in any
direction to move hidden areas of the host display into view on the
handheld device without the use of scroll bars.
Dynamic Cursor View modes
Multiple cursor modes are available to support automatic scrolling, so that
the cursor / input field is visible. The terminal display window will "track"
and follow the cursor. These view modes are configurable for each
session.
Configurable Fonts & Colors
CETerm allow users to increase or decrease the font sizes of displayed
text. Also, any fixed-width true type font file (.ttf) may be placed on the
device and selected for terminal display.
CETerm has full support for color displays. A color scheme is a collection
of colors mapped to a set of terminal display attributes. Users can select
from a pre-defined color schemes or create a custom scheme based upon
their preferences.
•
Leverages the "touch screen"
interface of Windows CE to
allow enhanced usability

SmartPads
All host applications have specific keyboard requirements. The Smartpad is
a floating button pad, which provides support for special emulation host
keys. Depending upon the current configured host emulation type, the
appropriate Smartpad for that emulation is displayed. The Smartpad
supports all the popular 3270, 5250 and VT host keys.
Text Input Tool
Data input can be inhibited due to the limited hardware keys on the DT-X10
and IT-500 terminals. Typing text strings can be a slow and tedious
process. The Text Input Tool addresses this issue by sending configurable
text strings to the display window at the current cursor location with a single
stylus tap. A user can configure often used text strings in the Input Tool.
Host Session password
Any host session may be password protected with the user being prompted
for a password when connecting that session.
Page 9
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
Automatic re-connection
If for some reason the network connection to the host is lost, user can
configure session to automatically attempt to re-connect.
Device / LU Name support
For IBM emulations (3270 and 5250), logical unit device name resource
configuration is supported. This is used during connection negotiations.
Integrated Demo modes
Simulated host terminal screens are integrated within the TE clients for
evaluation and sales demonstrations. No server component or network
connection is required to run demo modes.
Simply set the host name to “demo.naurtech.com” and connect.
VT Line Mode / Block Mode
This is a special optimization for VT host sessions. Data is buffered locally
within the device prior to sending it to the host. Line mode optimizes usage
of the network bandwidth and host resources.
VT Answerback String
This is a configurable text string that certain host applications require to
identify the terminal.
Hot Keys
Predefined hot keys are available to interact with and invoke emulator
operations.
Legacy Entensions
CETerm supports proprietary protocols used by legacy hardware terminals
so as to easily migrate customers to new terminals. These include
“Intermec Extended Commands”, “Symbol IBM PRN”, “Telxon VT
extensions” and “LXE block mode”.
Cold boot persistence
The CASIO DT-X10 and IT-500 terminals provide utilities to backup the
complete device to a Flash ROM. This prevents users from loosing their
application and data if the device undergoes a cold boot.
•
Optimized application workflow.
Prevents users from having to
reconnect to host application
•
Allows to better management
and administration of SNA host
resources
•
Easy demonstrations without
need for live host connection
•
Optimized network bandwidth

Benefits of using Handheld TE
Terminal Emulation remains the well-proven, cost-effective, time-efficient solution for host data
access and automatic data collection solutions that result in the fastest ROI. CETerm running on
a CASIO DT-X10 or IT-500 allows users to "extend" the desktop into their mobile workflows.
Here are some benefits of using handheld terminal emulation:
•
With a TE application running on the device, users do not have to make any changes to
their existing backend / host applications.
•
Naurtech Terminal Emulation products do not require any expensive middleware. No
modifications are required to the host applications.
•
Combined with integrated support for barcode scanning, a TE client delivers a wellproven, optimized workflow solution for data collection and data access.
•
A native TE client running on the device delivers a higher productivity, higher usability
solution than a Terminal Services component. This is because the native client is able to
conform to the form factor of the device.
•
A TE client directly interfaces with the host application. This minimizes the failure points
between the handheld terminal and the host application.
•
A TE solution provides a migration path to users who may eventually want to use client
server solutions.
•
Users get the same familiar host application screens.
•
With TE, all data updates take place directly to the backend host application. There is no
local storage of data.

Configuration
This section describes various configuration parameters for host connections. All these
parameters are set using the configuration dialogs accessed from the [Session]
[Configure] application menu. Except for "Connection" parameters, you can change or update
any parameters at any time, whether the host session is connected or disconnected.
All configuration attributes are associated with the currently active session. Every session can
have a different set of configuration attributes.
CONNECTION
The diagram below shows the hierarchy of configuration attributes for the Connection
configuration attributes.
Before you make a host connection, at a minimum, you must know the host name or IP address
and the port number of the host system to configure your host session.
• From the application menu, Select [Session][Configure] or tap the "Configure"
button
on the toolbar.
•
A "Configure" dialog box will come up.

NOTE: The default settings will change depending upon the current selection of "Host
Type".
Host Type: This is the terminal emulation type required by the host. Your choices are
3270, 5250 or VT220. You may select any one emulation type for the session. Other
connection options may change depending upon the host emulation type selected.
HTML host type is disabled but as it will be made available in a future version of the
product. With this host type session, you will be able to access web based applications
similar to the Pocket IE browser. However, with CETerm, you will get all the additional
benefits of an integrated barcode scanner, device lockdown and other functionality
required for automatic data capture solutions.
Host Address: This is the address of a host system or an intermediate gateway
managing connections to the host system. Enter the host name or numeric IP address,
using up to 64 characters. Default is demo.naurtech.com, which connects to a
simulated demo host.
Terminal Device: This is the terminal type string that determines the specific terminal to
emulate. For 3270 emulations only model 2 screen geometry is supported. CEVT220
supports VT52, VT100 and VT220 terminal types. Each host emulation type has its own
default terminal type.
Telnet Port: This is the TCP socket port number to be used to connect to the host
system. The default is 23.
Advanced: This button opens an advanced connection configuration dialogs.
General: This tab maintains all general configuration attributes relating to automatic
connection and reconnection.
Page 24
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
Initial Sleep: This is the time in seconds, which CETerm will wait when it is
launched to run. This setting is useful when you are configuring your device to
automatically launch CETerm from a device cold boot and connect to your host
application. Introducing an “Initial Sleep” allows the underlying wireless network
to initialize prior to CETerm attempting to establish a connection. The default
value is 0, which means no delay.
Auto Connect: Checking this box will automatically connect this host session
when the emulator is started. If you want to automatically connect to your host
configured for this session when the application starts, enable this checkbox. You
may have one or more host sessions configured for auto connections.
Auto Reconnect: Checking this box will cause the emulator to attempt to
reconnect to the host if the connection is lost or closed by the host.
Macro on Connect: Check this option if you want to invoke a pre-recorded
macro when the session connects. Use this capability for automatic login to a
host application.
Confirm Disconnect: Check this option if you want to be prompted prior to
disconnecting a connected session. The prompt will force a user action before
proceeding ahead with disconnection of the host session.
Page 25
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
IBM Options: This tab maintains all advanced configuration attributes relating to IBM
(3270 or 5250) emulations.
!IBM Codepage: All popular Western European codepages are now supported
for IBM emulations. By default, only the US English code page (IBM037) is
selectable. If you have a need for a different code page, please contact CASIO
technical support. Various code pages are also available from the Naurtech
support knowledgebase (www.naurtech.com). Once installed, you will then be
able to select your codepage from this dropdown listbox.
Device / LU#: The device name represents a dedicated LU number on the
server that you might want to connect through. Default is blank.
3270 EAB: This is an optional 3270 terminal emulation parameter. If checked,
this will allocate an Enhanced Attribute Buffer. EAB support allows for advanced
display features such as color and highlighting. This attribute does not apply to
5250 host sessions.

Page 27
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
Answerback Message: Host applications may query the VT terminal for a text
message answerback response. This response may be used to identify the
terminal. Configure the answerback text string as per your VT host application
requirement. Default is a Naurtech copyright message string.
Keyboard: Select the keyboard character locale for DEC multinational and
National Replacement Character set support. You can select from:
• North American
• British
• Flemish
• Canadian (French)
• Danish
• Finnish
• German / Austrian
• Dutch
• Italian
• Swiss (French)
• Swiss (German)
• Swedish
• Norwegian
• French / Belgian
• Spanish
• Portuguese
• Canadian (English)
Default is "North American".
Send Mode: Check this option to select buffering of text prior to being sent to the
host.
Character: This is the default VT behavior. Every character is sent to
the host application as soon as it is typed. There is no local buffering.
Line buffered: When enabled, all typed characters are buffered locally
until a function key, editing key, Enter, or other non-character is typed. It
then sends the buffered keys to the host.
Local Edit (Block): This is an ANSI mode, which allows a host
application to define entry fields on a screen. All typing is stored locally
until a function key or Enter is typed. The contents of the screen are
then returned to the host, depending on the modes set by the host
application.
Both Line buffered and Local Edit modes optimize usage of network
bandwidth and host resources. However compatibility with these modes
is dependent upon the VT host applications.
Page 28
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
Compatibility: Hardware vendors Intermec Technologies and LXE have
proprietary implementations of block mode support for VT host sessions. Check
the appropriate box for block mode compatibility.
User Preference Supplemental: This is the user preferred supplemental
character set. Default is DEC
VT Extensions: This tab groups attribute options international language; multi-byte
character set (MBCS) support and for VT protocol proprietary extensions.
Multi-byte: This group box wraps all configuration settings for international
languages such as Chinese Traditional, Chinese Simplified, Japanese, Korean,
Thai, Hebrew, Greek and others. This support is only available for VT emulation
sessions.
NOTE: These settings are disabled in the “English” version of CETerm. They are
available only in the “International version of CETerm.
Mode: This selects one of the several multi-byte modes to support single-byte
and double byte character sets. Select the type of character set encoding. You
can select from:
None: Use standard VT international character sets or National
Replacement Character (NRC) Sets.
DBCS: Double Byte Character Set. Selecting this encoding will process
double-byte characters based on the selected code page. Note that 8-bit
VT commands are illegal in DBCS mode.
Page 29
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
SBCS: Single Byte Character Set. Selecting this encoding will process
single-byte characters based on the selected code page. Note that 8-bit
VT commands are illegal in SBCS mode.
UTF-8: Selecting this encoding will process the data stream as Unicode
in the UTF-8 encoding. Note that most 8-bit VT commands are illegal in
UTF-8 mode.
Code Page: When DBCS or SBCS modes are selected, this setting allows
selection of the appropriate code page. Only the code pages available on the
device will be listed. If none are available, the mode will be forced back to None.
CETerm displays international character sets using Font Linking. This makes it
possible to link one or more fonts, called linked fonts, to another font, called the
base font. Once you link fonts, you can use the base font to display code points
that do not exist in the base font, but do exist in one of the linked fonts. For
example, linking a Japanese font to a Latin font gives you the ability to display
Japanese characters when using a Latin font using Unicode.
Font linking is typically used to enable Roman fonts to display non-Roman
characters. To extend font linking on your device, you can examine the following
registry setting to determine the mappings of linked fonts to base fonts.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\FontLink\SystemLink
You can add additional links by creating additional subkeys:
"base font face name" = "path and file to link to," "face name of the font to link"
Example: In this registry setting example, MSGothic, a Japanese-specific font is
sselected, when building the base platform. When searching for a character, the
base font is searched first followed by the linked font. This enables support for a
larger variety of characters in a font without switching.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\FontLink\SystemLink]
"Tahoma"=\\Windows\\msgothic.ttc,MS PGothic
Extensions: This group box wraps all VT protocol extensions that are proprietary to
legacy emulations. These are provided to easy migration from legacy terminals to CASIO
terminals.
Symbol TNVT: Enable extensions from Symbols 3000 series and Telxon TE
such as enabling the scanner, setting fixed screen mode, reporting the IP
address, exiting the program, and sending special control characters.
Page 30
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
Symbol CE VT: Enable extensions in Symbols VT220 CE TE, such as reporting
the MAC address, enabling the scanner, sounding tones, and setting block or
character modes.
Telxon: This is identical to the Symbol TNVT extensions.

NOTE: A Hotspot is a field on the terminal display where a user can tap with a
stylus to execute a function. This allows a user to interact with a host application
with minimal needs for special host keys.
A simple example might be the use of PF Keys. An operation associated with a
PF key might be displayed on the terminal as "PF1 = Help". CETerm
automatically detects this as a Hotspot and will send a PF1 key to the host when
you tap on the PF1 text on the terminal display. Refer to the Hotspots section for
further details.
Function Key Hotspots: Check this attribute to enable Hotspot functionality for
function keys. When enabled, you will be able to just tap on the function key text
(such as F7 = Prev F8 = Next etc) on the terminal display to invoke the
corresponding function key. The “Enable Touch Features” must also be checked
for this feature to be enabled.
Menu Item Hotspots: Check this attribute to enable Hotspot functionality for
menu items. When enabled, you will be able to just tap the menu item number on
the terminal display to invoke the corresponding menu item operation. Example
of this would be a menu such as:
1. Shipping
2. Receiving
3. Inventory
The user can just tap on “1. ” to invoke a “Shipping operation. The “Enable
Touch Features” must also be checked for this feature to be enabled.
IBM Hotspots: 3270 and 5250 applications have several keywords, which are
commonly used across many applications. Check this attribute to enable these
commonly used keywords as Hotspots. Examples are “Enter”, “More” and
“Bottom”. IBM Mouse and light pen activation must have IBM Hotspots
enabled. The “Enable Touch Features” must also be checked for this feature to
be enabled.
VT Hotspots: VT host applications have several keywords, which are commonly
used across many applications. The “Enable Touch Features” must also be
checked for this feature to be enabled.
The “Config KeyBars and Keys” button is used to configure the custom KeyBar and remap Windows CE application keys and device hardware keys.
Keybar Cycle: A KeyBar configuration consists of both the KeyBar Cycle and any
Custom or template KeyBars. A KeyBar is the set of keys visible at one time. The
KeyBar Cycle is a collection of KeyBars that can be visible. The user "cycles" through
the collection of KeyBars by tapping the arrow buttons on either end of the current
KeyBar. Each key on the KeyBar is associated with a host or emulator operation. Users
Page 41
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
are allowed a maximum of eighteen KeyBars, four of which can be customized. The
same KeyBar may be added multiple times to the KeyBar Cycle.
Order in which the KeyBars will
"cycle". Can include pre-defined
KeyBars and Custom KeyBars
This is the complete list of available
KeyBars. You can select from these

appear on the Context Menu. Enable this checkbox to enable the context menu,
which may be invoked by tapping and holding the stylus anywhere in the terminal
display area. Any operation configured in Custom Keybar 6 will appear on this
context menu.
Select Keymap: Most hardware keys can be remapped to perform any action such as
simulating a function key, entering a string of text or sending a custom VT escape
sequence. Keys, which control screen brightness, sound volumes, and other Windows
CE actions, often cannot be remapped. The two main steps for key remapping are
selecting the type of keymap to use, and editing the keymap.
Select Keymap Type: Selects a custom keymap that will apply to connected
host sessions. Custom key remapping of device hardware keys may be such
that they are associated in one of the following ways:
Session: The custom key remapping is associated with this host session
only.
Emulation: The custom key remapping is associated with a particular
type of emulation such as 3270, 5250 or VT. This keymap can be shared
with other host sessions running the same host emulation.
External: The custom key remap depends on an emulation type and is
loaded via an external DLL. This provides backwards compatibility for
key remapping for previous versions.
Page 43
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
None: No custom key remapping is used. The default minimal base
keymap is used.
Include Common Map: This attribute is applicable only if the “Session” or
“Emulation” keymap types are selected. When checked, a common custom
keymap will be added to the session or emulation keymap.
Unconnected (Base) Keymap: When the session is not connected to the host,
an Unconnected Keymap is used. This keymap may be a custom map or may be
loaded from a DLL. One of the following associations is possible:
Base Specific: Selects the custom Base Keymap, which is shared by all
host sessions.
External: Selects the custom Base Keymap from a DLL
None: Selects the default minimal Base Keymap.
External Maps Present: This is a read only attribute, which provides information
about which type of external custom key remapping is currently loaded. The radio
button of the corresponding emulation type will appear selected to indicate the
loaded external custom key remapping. If no external key remapping DLL is
loaded, then none of the radio buttons will be selected.
NOTE: You cannot have a key remapping which is a combination of an External
DLL and internal key customization. If “External” keymap type is selected,
then all internal key remap configurations are ignored. It is recommended
that you not use external DLL key remapping.
Edit Keymap: If you have selected a keymap other than “External”, you can edit the keys
and their association using this tab. All custom keymaps, which are not part of an
external DLL may be edited from here.

Redundancy: The Redundancy setting is used to control how many times a barcode
must be decoded by the scanner before it is accepted. Higher redundancy reduces the
potential for errors, but increases the time to read the barcode.
Selected Twice - two times redundancy for Codabar, Code 11, Code 128, Code
39, Code 93, D 2of5, Int 2of5, MSI, and Trioptic 39.
Short Twice - two times redundancy for short bar codes or Codabar.
All Twice - two times redundancy for all bar codes.
Short Thrice - two times redundancy for long bar codes, three times for short bar
codes.
All Thrice - three times redundancy for all bar codes.
Scan Millisec: This attribute controls the scan duration. If a barcode is not read within
this time, the scanner will shut off and a failure tone is sounded. The default value is 0,
which is unlimited. Some scanners do not timeout regardless of this setting.
Verify Input: When using IBM 5250 emulation and if Verify Input is checked, the input
field at the cursor location will be checked to determine if there is sufficient space for the
scanned data. If there is no input field or there is insufficient space, a warning will be
displayed and the data will be discarded.
Advanced: This button opens a configuration dialog for advanced barcode scanner data
decode options.
Mode: The IT-500 scanner contains filters to improve decoding of barcodes. There is a
hardware filter and a software filter. Select either the hardware filter, software filter, none,
or both.
Delay: Select the time delay, in seconds, before the filters are activated.
Read Count: The IT-500 scanner can read multiple barcodes during one trigger press.
Set the count to the desired value.

SYMBOLOGY
CETerm supports over twelve different barcode
symbologies available on the DT-X10 and IT-500
terminals. Each barcode symbology has its own set
of configuration settings. Users can enable, disable
or configure individual symbologies.
•
From the application menu, Select
[Session][Configure] or tap the
"Configure" button on the toolbar.
•
A "Configure" dialog box will come up.
•
Choose the "Symbology" tab
The list box on the top left contains a list of barcode symbologies supported by the scanner.
This list of symbologies depends upon the internal scanning engine available on the device.
Configuration parameters associated with each symbology vary depending upon the
symbology selected.
Enable: Check this box to enable the selected symbology for decode. If desired, you may
enable a subset of symbologies from the complete list. To minimize data entry errors and
higher performance, it is recommended that you enable only those symbologies that are
being used for scanning (and disable all other symbologies).
Report Check: Check this box to report (or return) the check digit as part of the barcode
data.
Page 50
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
NOTE: Each symbology has a separate set of configuration parameters associated with it.
Selecting the symbology from the list will make these visible for configuration and update.
Please refer to the individual barcode symbology references in your device documentation.
Advanced: This button opens advanced configuration dialog for the selected barcode
symbology. All settings configured and updated in this dialog are associated with the
currently selected symbology.
Data Length Min: This is the minimum length, in characters, for the decoded barcode.
Specifying a minimum length will require every scanned barcode to be at least the
minimum length. Possible values depend on the symbology. Default is usually 0 which
implies no minimum length.
Data Length Max: This is the maximum length, in characters, for the decoded barcode.
Specifying a maximum length will require every scanned barcode to be at most the
maximum length. Possible values depend on the symbology. Default is usually 0 which
implies no maximum length.
Strip Data Start: This is the number of characters to be stripped from the beginning of
the decoded barcode. Default is 0, which does not strip any characters.
Strip Data End: This is the number of characters to be stripped from the end of the
decoded barcode. Default is 0, which does not strip any characters.
Custom ID: Checking this box will enable the Custom ID when used with the %L preamble or post-amble code. A %C in a pre-amble or post-amble will insert the custom ID
regardless of the setting of this box. The custom ID text may be configured in the edit
box.

Session Interaction
Naurtech CETerm allows up to four simultaneous host terminal sessions. Although, each of these
terminal sessions may be disconnected or connected, only one session is in the foreground at
any time. This is the active session and receives all user interaction. Connected sessions in the
background maintain their host session connections and update their (hidden) screen content.
MULTIPLE SESSIONS
You can navigate between multiple sessions either by selecting the session from the application
menu or by using the "Next live session" KeyBar button
or hotkey [Ctrl][Shift][J]. The
current active session is indicated in the application [Session] menu as shown below. Host
addresses configured for each of the host sessions are indicated as part of the session names.
" Indicates session is
connected to host
Up to four simultaneous host sessions
Can specify host DNS alias or IP
address
>> << Indicates
current active session.
PASSWORD PROTECTION
All sessions may be password protected for security. You can set a password for a host session
by first configuring the session and connecting to the host.
•
•
•
Once connected, from the application menu select [Session][Password]. This will
prompt with a password dialog.
Enter the password.
Next time you attempt to connect this session, you will be prompted to enter the session
password. If the password is incorrect, session will not connect.
Page 52
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
CONNECTING / DISCONNECTING FROM HOST
To connect to a host, configure the session connection parameters (Host Type, Host Address and
Telnet Port) and select "Connect" from the application menu. Only disconnected sessions may be
connected. Once connected, you may disconnect the host session by selecting "Disconnect" from
the application menu. You must configure the host session prior to attempting a connection.
•
From the application menu select [Session][Connect] to connect or
[Session][Disconnect] to disconnect. You may also tap the "Connect / Disconnect "
button
on the toolbar.
AUTO-LAUNCH CETERM WHEN DEVICE BOOTS
You can configure CETerm to automatically launch when the device boots. This can simply be
done by placing a shortcut in the \Windows\StartUp folder on the device.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Make sure CETerm is installed correctly and you can see an icon on the device desktop
On the device, run Windows file explorer [Start][Programs][Windows Explorer]
Navigate to the \Windows\Desktop folder
Highlight the shortcut “Naurtech CETerm”
Select [Edit][Copy] from the Windows Explorer menu
Navigate back to the \Windows\StartUp folder
From the Windows Explorer menu, select [Edit][Paste]
NOTE: You can also follow these steps from the mobile device explorer running on your
desktop, if your device is connected via active sync to it.
AUTO-START A HOST SESSION
You can configure one or more sessions to automatically connect to the host when the emulator
starts. This can be done from the advanced connection configuration setting. You will need to
make this selection for every host session that you want to auto-start
•
•
•
•
From the application menu, select [Session][Configure]
In the "Connection" tab, select the Advanced button. This will open the advanced
connection settings dialog
Enable the "Auto Connect" checkbox
Hit OK
INTRODUCING A STARTUP DELAY
When CETerm is configured to automatically launch during a device boot and then connect to
your host application, you may find the need to introduce a delay during the startup process. This
is necessary because CETerm assumes that the underlying wireless TCP/IP network is
functional. The delay will allow time for the device to make an RF association with the access
points and perform the needed network initialization.
The length of this initial delay will vary from one network to another. It is recommended that you
change the “Initial Sleep” delay settings to match your network requirements.
Page 53
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
•
•
•
From the application menu, select [Session][Configure]
In the "Connection" tab, select the Advanced button. This will open the advanced
connection settings dialog.
Enter a value in the “Initial Sleep” edit box. The default is 0 meaning no delay. This value
is in seconds.
USE BARCODES TO INVOKE OPERATIONS OR KEYSTROKES
Within CETerm, scanning a barcode with special content can be configured to simulate
Keystrokes. In fact, any application operation can be invoked via ID action (IDA) codes with this
approach. The barcode can be any symbology, but "Extended Code 39" is a good choice.
Extended Code 39 is also called the "Full ASCII" mode of Code 39. By using two-character
sequences, it can represent the needed backslash and underscore characters.
With Extended Code 39 symbology, the scanner is often configured to require a '*' as a start and
stop character. Make sure your generated barcodes are compliant with your scanner
configuration whether you use Code 39 or some other symbology.
The content of the barcode is in the form: *\IDA_name\* where name is the "Symbolic Name" of
the IDA action. These values are internal to CETerm.
There is a “Free 3 of 9 Extended” font available for Microsoft Windows operating systems, which
may be used to represent text into Extended Code 39 barcode. You can download this from the
Naurtech support knowledgebase.
Note that if an IDA action is decoded at the start of a barcode, all additional characters are
ignored. Also, there is no "stripping" of characters and no pre- or post-ambles are sent. Any
barcode length restrictions may still be imposed by the symbology configuration.
A sample document containing function key barcodes is attached, as is a special font that is
needed by the document to display the barcodes.

DISPLAY DEVICE PARAMETERS (SERIAL #, MAC ADDRESS, BATTERY…)
You can associate a hardware key or a Keybar key to display device specific information such as
serial number, Device ID, MAC address, IP address and Battery level. This is done via popup
Page 54
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
messages. The steps for this configuration are equivalent to key remapping. The only different is
in the selection of the “Action”.
You can also associate the IDA action code of the device setting popup with the key to achieve
the same result
1. Navigate to [Session] -> [Configure] -> options
tab -> Config Keybar and keys -> Edit Keymap
tab
2. Select the Common Keymap from the Keymap dropdown list
3. Hit New to add a new key remapping
4. Select the key in the Virtual Key dropdown that you would
like to associate with the device setting.
5. In the Action list box, select device setting for which you
want to associate a popup message. The following table
show the possible action selections
Action

6. You may want to add the same remapping to the base (unconnected) keymap as well
Play a different audio tone / sound on my device
Audio tones can be played using the built in Extended command support within CETerm. Users
can use the "Tone" extended command to cause the system to play a specified tone. This is
supported through the "extended commands". The syntax is:
#T<volume><frequency><length>
<volume>
<frequency>
<length>
is specified in columns 4-6. Range is between 000 and 255
is specified in columns 7-9. Range is between 000 and 030
is specified in columns 10-12. Range is between 001 and 010
You can also play any "system sound" or a .wav file on CE devices. To play any .wav file on the
device the syntax is the same except that the "Volume", "Frequency", and "Length" parameters
Page 55
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
are used directly to construct a filename. You may use any 9 characters for the soundname /
filename. Do not put in the (.wav) extension, it is assumed. More than 9 characters are ignored. If
you have a shorter filename, insert leading spaces so that the filename ends at the 9th character.
If the requested sound does not exist on the device, a default sound will play. For development
purposes you may want to use a standard system sound and then find or create your custom
"alert sound" later. You can look for .wav files in the \Windows directory for standard sounds.
Key Remapping and Configuration
CETerm can be configured for key remapping and input. Users can choose one or more of the
following mechanisms for key remapping and input.
•
Remap physical hardware keys on the device. Details for this functionality are discussed
in the “Keyboard Key Remapping” section below.
•
Configure one or more KeyBars. Users may select from predefined templates or
customize their own KeyBars. Details for this functionality are discussed in the
“Configurable KeyBar” section below.
•
Configure a Context Menu KeyBars. Details for this functionality are discussed in the
“Context Menu” section below.
KEYBOARD KEY REMAPPING
CETerm can be configured to map any physical keyboard key on the device to any host action or
application operation within the emulator. There are two ways to specify key remappings: external
and internal.
For external key remappings, a DLL file is built by Naurtech and placed on the device by the user.
This is the old way of configuring key remapping. All custom key remapping DLLs
(KMAPCET.DLL) from prior versions of CETerm are supported.
NOTE: The external mapping has been preserved for backward compatibility and special cases,
but all new key mappings should be done using the internal remapping features.
For internal key remappings users can directly configure the keys using on-device configuration.
The typical approach should be to use "emulation specific" maps, which applies to all sessions
using the same emulation type, such as VT220. In special cases, it may be necessary to define a
keymap, which applies only to one session only. In this case you should define and use the
"session specific" map.
Session specific maps are more work to configure because they must be defined individually for
each session.
To simplify configuration of keys that are common to all sessions and emulations, there is a
"Common" map, which can be "added" to the "Emulation" or "Session" maps by checking the
"Include Common Map" box. The Common map can be edited.
Page 56
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
Lastly, there is the situation when a session is not connected to the host. In this disconnected
state, all sessions share a common key mapping which is independent of the session emulation
type. This mapping is called the "Unconnected" or "Base" map. The Base map can be edited or
an external Base can be selected.
Remap a hardware key
You can configure your device to re-map any physical keyboard key on the device to any of the
following:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Another key
An application operation such as "Jump to Next Session" or "Print"
A host specific key such as "F4" or "Field Exit"
An escape sequence such as "Esc[15~"
A text string such as "My input string"
A NULL or no operation which will prevent use of that key
This remapping may be configured specific to either a session or an emulation type (such as VT,
5250, 3270 etc). Follow these steps to remap a hardware key:
1. From the application menu, select [Session][Configure]
2. Go to the "Options" tab and click the "Configure Keybars and Keys..." button
3. Go to the "Select Keymap" tab. Select the custom keymap to be specific to this
particular session or an emulation type (3270, 5250 or VT). Generally it is recommended
that you use an "Emulation" keymap type. The "Unconnected Keymap" is used when
the session is not connected to the host.
4. Go to the "Edit Keymap" tab. Say you want to customize the following key remap:
Key Sequence
F1
Ctrl + 1
F5
F8
F9
Up Arrow
New key remapping
"W" key
"Next live session"
"Esc[13~" escape sequence
"Erase Input"
"my custom input" text string
Disable this key
5. From the "Keymap" dropdown list, select the type of keymap you want to customize. For
an emulation keymap, (selected in 3 above) select the "VT Keymap" for all VT sessions
or “5250 Keymap” for all 5250 sessions, “3270 Keymap” for all 3270 sessions. There
might be some predefined entries, which will appear in the keymap table for each
keymap selection. For details on the keymap table columns, please refer to the Options
section under Configuration.
6. Select the “New…” button. You will be prompted with a New key dialog. This is identical
to the “Edit” key dialog
6.1 Select the key type to be "Virtual Key".
Page 57
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
6.2 From the dropdown list, select the key you want to remap.
In our remap example, you want to remap the F1 key so that
when it is pressed a “W” is generated instead. (F1 ---> "W").
Select the key to be "F1"
6.3 Check any modifier state key checkboxes. In our custom
remap example, none of these will be checked for the F1 -->"W" key remapping. The "Ctrl" checkbox will be checked for
the remap Ctrl + 1 ---> "Next live session"
6.4 In the "Action" dropdown, Select the new action that the
key is being remapped to. In our remap example (F1 --->
"W"), this should be a "W"
6.5 Click OK. This remap will be displayed in the table.
6.6 To remap a key to an Escape sequence or text string, select the Action "Text n"
(where n is the number between 1 and 65). This will result in an edit box appearing,
where you can specify the custom text string. Text strings may contain special escape
sequences for VT or sequences of actions:
Script
\r
\t
\e
\x5a
\IDA_action\
Description
Return
Tab
ESC for VT sequences
Hexadecimal value
Invoke ID action
The \IDA_action\ text is proprietary to Naurtech CETerm. This allows users to invoke
almost any application operation or event programmatically. Please contact us if you
have a specific need and are looking for a particular IDA_action reference
Follow steps 6.1 through 6.5 to remap other keys. To disable a key, you can map it to a
"Null" Action.
7. Click OK. Connect to the host application and invoke the remapped keys to test the remap.
CONFIGURABLE KEYBAR
The CASIO DT-X10 and IT-500 have a limited set of hardware keys. Users may often rely upon
the Soft Input Panel (SIP) to "spell type" data. However, the SIP usage is cumbersome, occupies
precious screen real estate and it does not provide any special host keys such as those needed
in a terminal emulation program.
The configurable KeyBar functionality allows users to customize a set of soft keys to invoke any
host specific keys or emulator operations. Users can select from a set of pre-defined KeyBar
templates. In addition, they can also configure up to four Custom KeyBars of their own. Users can
navigate or “cycle” within a selected subset of Keybars.
Page 58
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
The KeyBar appears next to the application Menu and Toolbar. These can be dragged and
placed in separate rows, if so desired. To configure the KeyBar, please refer to the Options
section under Configuration. Take some time to customize the KeyBar and become familiar with
it’s use, it will be time well spent.
When enabled, the KeyBar appears on "top" of either the application menu, application toolbar or
SIP, depending upon their visibility state. Tap the arrow button on either end to cycle backward or
forward through the configured KeyBars.

Create a Custom KeyBar
•
•
•
•
•
In the KeyBar Cycle tab, add a Custom Bar to the KeyBar Cycle
In the Custom Bar tab, select the Custom Bar that you want to configure
Select the Key or operation that you want to appear on this custom bar
Tap "Add to Above". The selected key / operation will appear in the list.
Delete unwanted keys by selecting them and tapping “Delete”.
You can add up to a total of 9 key buttons on each Custom Bar (Fewer on some devices). The
entry for "Previous KeyBar" cannot be removed and must exist in each KeyBar to allow for
"cycling" between KeyBars. Typically, the last key should be “Next KeyBar” for cycling to the next
KeyBar.
One powerful capability of the KeyBar is the ability to associate keys with the Text Input Tool. Key
entries "Input 1" through "Input 20" are tied to the corresponding twenty entries in the Text Input
tool. Thus if you have a text string configured in the data input tool, this string can be submitted to
the host application by tapping on the "Input X" key in a Custom KeyBar. Tapping this key will
send the complete text string to the current cursor location. For VT terminal sessions, escape
sequences can be added to the Text Input Tool text. This allows users to configure custom
escape sequences as required by their host applications.
Escape sequences can be entered into the Text Input Tool in the following format:
\e =
\n =
\r =
\t =
\xDD
Escape
Newline
Enter or Return
Tab
= Hexadecimal value
Customize User Text
User text is any arbitrary text that may be configured so that this does not have to be spell typed
using either the hardware keys or the soft input panel on the device. You can associate the user
text strings with the either software button keys on the Configurable Keybar or hardware keys.
User text strings can be any escaped text string, escape sequence or Naurtech ID action (IDA)
codes. Please refer to the “User Text” section under Options configuration.
Page 62
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
Text strings do not have to be created on a device. You can create a simple text file, active sync
this file to the device and “load” your text strings from this file. Each text entry should be on a
separate line. An example is shown below.
Any text string
Can include numbers 672 #@
VT Escape seq \e[17~
Carriage return \r
Tab \t
IDA Code \IDA_F3\
Text file
The user text entries are automatically assigned a numeric order value. This is for representation
only. This order numbering value is not part of the user text. Once configured the user text entries
are referenced as Text n within CETerm configuration, where n is the assigned order number.
In our example above, text entry Text 4, within CETerm, will be associated with the text string
“Carriage return \r”
You can also edit the text strings right on the device.
CREATING CONTEXT MENUS
If configured, you can tap and hold your stylus anywhere within
the terminal display area of your device to invoke a context
menu. This menu can be customized with specific entries. A
special context menu is invoked when the user taps and holds
the stylus in to top left edge of the display screen. This special
context menu is never disabled.
Configurable Keybar Custom Keys 6 is associated with the
Context menu. Any actions associated with Custom Keys 6
show up in the context menu when it is enabled. To enable the
context menu
1. Navigate to [Session] -> [Configure] -> Options
tab -> [Configure KeyBars and Keys] -> Custom
Bar tab
Page 63
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
2. Enable the Enable Custom Context Menu checkbox
3. Add the desired key operations which you want to appear in the Context Menu to Custom
Keybar Custom Keys 6
4. To trigger the Context Menu, tap and hold the stylus anywhere on the terminal display area.
Appearance of a red dotted circle, as shown in the screenshot, indicates that the Context
Menu is being invoked. Hold the stylus until the menu appears.
Hotkey shortcuts
CETerm has several predefined hot keys, which may be used to invoke certain application
operations. These may normally be used with devices that have a keypad such as the DT-X10.
On the DT-X10, by default, the Programmable key (Green with a circle) acts like a Ctrl key. The
following table lists the default hotkeys.

Access Control / Device Lockdown
In certain workflow scenarios, there is a need to prevent users from being able to change or alter
CETerm and device configuration settings. Further there may be a requirement to prevent users
from exiting CETerm or launching other applications. Doing so minimizes the support costs by
preventing users from inadvertently changing the device or CETerm settings.
The Access Control features address these needs. Refer to the Options configuration section for
details on configuring these features. Access control functionality allows for the following:
•
Administrators can password protect access to CETerm session configuration settings.
This prevents users from changing the CETerm configuration
•
Prevent users from invoking another application by disabling the Start menu.
•
Prevent users from exiting the CETerm
Please refer to the Quick reference and configuration sections of this manual for details on
configuring this functionality.
Lock down my device
You can lock down your device by configuring the following three options. These will prevent the
user from exiting CETerm, launching any other application besides CETerm or changing the
configuration.
•
•
•
Hide the Start button / Start bar
Disable application exit
Set a configuration access password
1. Navigate to [Session] -> [Configure] -> Display tab -> [Advanced] ->
Hide/Show tab
2. Check “Hide All Bars” checkbox
3. Navigate to [Session] -> [Configure] -> Options tab -> [Advanced] ->
Access Control tab
4. Check “Hide Start Bar” checkbox
5. Check “Disable App Exit” checkbox
6. Tap the “Set Password” button and enter a configuration access password. Hit OK
7. Tap the “Exit Now” button in the Advanced Options dialog.
8. Launch CETerm. You will be in full screen mode, with no access to any application menu or
Start Bar
Page 65
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
Get to my configuration from full screen mode
When configured in full screen mode, the whole device display area is
occupied by the terminal. The user does not have access to the
Windows CE Start button. The CETerm application menu and toolbars
are all hidden.
You can get back to your configuration dialogs form such a
configuration via a special Context Menu. If you tap and hold the stylus
towards the top left edge of the display screen, you will see a context
menu appear (If the Start bar is visible, then tap an hold on the top left
edge right below the Start bar). Your options will be to “Connect”,
“Configure” or “Program Exit”.
Choosing Configure will bring up the configuration dialog. If you have
configured an access control password, you will be required to enter
this, prior to getting access to the configuration dialogs.
The screenshot on the right shows the top left area, which will invoke the special context menu.
This is circled in red.

International Code Pages
Within CETerm, support for international languages can be provided on two fronts. This may
include localizing the application so that all application dialogs, menus and other widgets are
translated into the specific language. Additionally the protocol datastream used in interfacing with
the host application can support input and display of the language specific characters and glyphs.
CETerm provides this latter support for international code pages for all Naurtech IBM emulations.
International language support for VT emulations is provided through the National Replacement
Character set.
A codepage is a list of selected character codes in a certain order. Codepages are usually
defined to support specific languages or groups of languages, which share common writing
systems. For example, codepage 1253 provides character codes required in the Greek
writing system. The order of the character codes in a codepage provides the appropriate
character code for an application when a user presses a key on the keyboard. When a new
codepage is loaded, different character codes are provided to the application.
Codepages can be changed on-the-fly by the user, without changing the default language system
in use on the device. Language specific fonts are required to be installed on the device, to
correctly display the character glyphs for the codepage language.
To configure, go to [Session][Configure][Connection tab][Advanced][IBM
Options], and select the desired codepage. Although, by default only the US English codepage
(IBM037) is available, you can install any Western European language codepage to enable
display and input of the language specific glyphs.
Once you have configured the new codepage, the settings become part of the Naurtech emulator
settings and nothing requires to be done additionally to persist these over a cold boot. The
following is a list of some of the popular code pages that are supported.

Load a new IBM code page table into CETerm
By default, only IBM037 (US English) codepage is enabled for IBM (3270 and 5250) emulations.
To incorporate support for your desired code page, you will need to download a CAB file
associated with your code page and install it on your device. This is available from Naurtech
support knowledgebase. Your code page will automatically appear as a selectable item in the
configuration.

Macros
You can use macros to automate navigation across multiple host screens within a session. One
simple use of macros is to automate the login sequence to the host application. CETerm provides
a Macro toolbar to control all macro operations. After recording a macro you can play this
recorded macro any number of times.
Because user input and host response is specific to the host application, macros are specific to
the host application in use. In addition, macros are sensitive to the network propagation delay,
which may vary with every connection to the host. CETerm uses a complex algorithm to record
and playback a macro to account for various network and host application delays.
Macros are associated with a connected host session. Only one macro may be recorded for each
session. Re-recording a macro for a session will overwrite the previously recorded macro. Macros
are not saved in a session file.
You can invoke the Macro toolbar from the application menu by selecting [Display][Macro].
You may also tap the "Macro " button
on the toolbar.
Tip: You may use the Macro hotkey [Ctrl][Shift][S] to invoke this operation
Host session
association and
macro status
Macro delay
Macro record
Macro stop
Macro playback
Macro Status: The macro toolbar window title displays the host session association and current
status of the macro. Macro status may be “Stopped”, “Recording” or “Playback”.
Delay: Due to parameters such as network propagation delays, host application response times
may vary slightly with every host session connection. This slight variation in response times can
Page 68
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
contribute to the failure during playback of a recorded macro. The “Delay” attribute is a forced
timing inserted during playback between sending recorded keystrokes and receiving host
application responses. Increase the delay timing when interacting with slower host systems or
over a slower network.
RECORDING
Prior to recording a macro it is helpful to rehearse the desired actions. To record a macro, follow
these steps.
• Configure and connect a terminal session to the host application
•
Invoke the macro toolbar
•
Tap the “Record” button
to start recording the macro. Focus will shift to the terminal
application. The Macro toolbar title status will change to “Recording…”. You can interact
with the host application as you would normally by entering text and host keys and
getting response screens.
•
During the recording phase, all inputs are saved. Once you are done navigating the host
screens, you can stop recording by tapping the “Stop” button
•
The macro is automatically saved for the current active session. No explicit save is
required.
PLAYBACK
You must successfully record a macro prior to playing it back. Macro playback must be invoked at
the exact same point, within the host application, at which recording started. Attempting a macro
playback at any other point will most likely fail except for trivial text entry. To playback a macro,
follow these steps.
•
Connect to the host application on the session for which the macro was recorded.
Navigate to the starting point within the host application at which the macro was
recorded. This may be the opening screen if the macro is used to auto-login.
•
Invoke the macro toolbar
•
Tap the “Playback” button
to start playing the macro. Focus will shift to the terminal
application. The Macro toolbar title status will change to “Playback…”. The macro toolbar
will hide. You will see the cursor relocate and keystrokes automatically being typed. The
host application will respond. The macro playback engine will appropriately wait until all
host response is received and then type subsequent recorded keystrokes to navigate
across additional host screens.
•
It is recommended that you review your recorded macro to ensure that it successfully
runs to completion.
WARNING: Playback of macros is sensitive the host screen and associated keystrokes.
Do not press any extraneous keys or the macro playback might fail. Macro playback
should be started at the point where recording started.
Page 69
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
AUTOMATIC LOGIN
You can automate the login process to a host application for a given session. To do so, configure
the host terminal session.
•
•
•
Starting at the first screen, record a macro for logging into the host application and
navigating to the desired host application screen.
Logout and playback the macro manually, using the macro toolbar, to ensure it works
properly.
Once satisfied, check the “Macro on Connect” option. You can do this from the
”Advanced” dialog of the “Connection” tab from the [Session][Configure] dialog.
CREATING A MINI-MACRO
Internally within CETerm, every application operation has an associated ID Action (or IDA) code
defined. These IDA codes can be chained to create a sequence of events, which is called a mini
macro. This sequence of events can be remapped to any key.
You can use the User Text configuration to define a sequence of IDA operations which will get
executed is serial order. This is a mini-macro. To create your mini macro:
1. Navigate to [Session] -> [Configure] -> Options tab -> Config KeyBars
and Keys -> User Text tab
2. Enter your IDA sequences for Text n entries, where n is an auto-assigned entry number
between 1 and 65. The syntax is demonstrated via examples below.
3. Now you can remap Text n to any application, hardware or Keybar key
Text 1 =
\IDA_SESSION_S1\\IDA_SLEEP_5000\\IDA_SESSION_CONNECT\
In the example above, Text 1 will trigger the following operations in order:
• It will switch to session S1
• Wait for 5 seconds (5000 milliseconds)
• Attempt to connect to the configured host on this session
Text 2 =
\IDA_SESSION_DISCON_ALL\\IDA_PROGRAM_EXIT\
In the example above, Text 2 will trigger the following operations in order:
• Disconnect all connected host sessions
• Exit CETerm application
Printing
CETerm supports printing to a printer connected via a serial port, infrared (IrDA) or Bluetooth.
Page 70
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
VT PRINTING
VT terminal emulation in CETerm supports all VT printing commands. Make sure that your printer
is attached to the serial port via a serial cable and the serial port configuration is correct. Please
refer to your printer manuals for serial port configurations required by your printer.
For IrDA printing, make sure that there is a clear path between the IrDA port on the handheld and
the IrDA port on the printer.
For Bluetooth printer device, CETerm supports automatic device discovery. CETerm will prompt
you with a list of Bluetooth devices within range to which a print job may be redirected.
To print, issue print commands from the host application.
INTERMEC EXTENDED COMMANDS
Intermec Extended Commands are special commands implemented by the host application to
control and interact with peripherals attached to the handheld device. These are generally used to
transmit and receive data on the serial (RS-232) port of the device. Refer to reference documents
from Intermec for details on their command set.
Extended commands can be used under 3270, 5250, and VT emulations. They can be used to
print receipts or read from an attached scale or magnetic stripe reader.
Page 71
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
HotSpots
A HotSpot is a field on the terminal screen where a user can tap with a stylus to execute a
function. This allows a user to interact with a host application without using physical keys or the
KeyBar. A simple example might be the use of PF Keys. An operation associated with a PF key
might be displayed on the terminal as "PF1 = Help". CETerm automatically detect this as a
HotSpot and will send a PF1 key to the host when you tap on the PF1 text on the terminal
display. To invoke a hotspot, tap anywhere on the text of that hotspot. Hotspots are not user
configurable.
Hotspots are supported for 3270, 5250 and VT emulations. The emulations share some forms of
HotSpots, such as function keys and menus, but others depend on the type of emulation.
The following table lists some text strings that are recognized as HotSpots

NOTE: Prior to using a “menu choice” HotSpot, the cursor must be in the input field where the
menu choice is submitted. (Applies to IBM emulation only.)
TIP: HotSpots are sensitive to the stylus calibration on the device. To get accurate HotSpot
taps, make sure your stylus is correctly calibrated.

NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
Screen Panning
Several host applications have been designed for the desktop screen form factor. These
applications typically have 24 rows x 80 columns. When viewing these applications from a
handheld device, only a portion of the host screen is visible because of the smaller display of the
handheld device. Horizontal and vertical scroll bars are typically used to set the view port
location. As an alternative to scroll bars, the screen can be positioned by “dragging” the stylus.
Imagine the host application screen as a large sheet under the display on the handheld device.
Screen Panning allows users to "tap, hold and drag" this sheet in any direction to move hidden
areas of the host display into view on the handheld device without the use of scroll bars.
[Display] [Touch features] controls the screen panning options
Follow these steps to use panning:
•
Make sure “touch features” are enabled. You can configure this setting from [Session]
-> [Configure] -> Options tab -> [Addvanced] -> Touch Features
tab
•
Enable the Enable Touch Features checkbox
•
Connect to your host application using CETerm
•
With the stylus, "tap and hold" anywhere on the terminal screen. Be careful not to tap on
a HotSpot, if you do not also want a HotSpot action
•
Drag the stylus, without lifting, to drag hidden areas of the screen into view

SmartPads
Depending upon the terminal emulation type, certain keys may be required to navigate within the
host application. The SmartPad is a soft keypad that provides access to all emulation specific
keys. You can invoke the SmartPad only if the session is connected. The correct SmartPad
appears for the emulation type of the current active session.
You can invoke the SmartPad from the application menu by selecting [Display][SmartPad].
You may also tap the "SmartPad " button
on the toolbar.
Tip: You may use the SmartPad hotkey [Ctrl][Shift][P] to invoke this operation
SmartPads are not configurable dynamically. They provide functionality similar to the
Configurable KeyBar. However the keys on the Smartpad are preconfigured for 3270, 5250 and
VT host emulations are shown below.
Tip: We recommend using the KeyBar with Custom bars to access frequently needed keys and
conserve display space. However, the SmartPad provides quick and convenient access to all
host keys when needed.

Text Input Tool
For Windows CE devices without a keyboard, data entry is usually performed using a stylus with
the integrated soft keypad. This requires the user to spell-type text strings. This is a slow and
tedious process. The Text Input Tool addresses this issue by sending complete text strings to the
display window at the current cursor location. A user can record a set of often used text strings in
the input tool.
You can invoke the Text Input Tool from the application menu by selecting [Display][Input
Tool]. You may also tap the "Input Tool" button
on the toolbar. On Pocket PC devices, the
Text Input Tool may be made visible or hidden by alternatively selecting the toolbar button or
hotkey.
Tip: You can also invoke the Text Input tool by using the hotkey [Ctrl][Shift][I].
You can build your recorded list of text strings by pasting text from the clipboard (For example
[Edit][Copy] in pocket word) directly into the Text Input Tool edit box. You can also directly type a
text string into the edit box using the system soft keypad. Lastly, you can initialize this list from an
ASCII text file.
Paste: Tapping the Paste button will copy any text from the clipboard into the edit box.
Add: Tapping the Add button adds any text in the edit box to the list. Blank strings are
not added.
Del: Tapping the Del button deletes the currently selected text string from the list.
Clear: Tapping the Clear button clears the edit box.
File: Tapping the File button opens a dialog to select a text file that will be read to
initialize the list. Each text string to be added to the list must be on a separate line
delimited by a CRLF. The following file shows a sample input text file
78438-8889-9494
Any text string here
Username
We recommend that you create a file for initializing the list on your desktop PC and then
ActiveSync it to the device. Each session has it’s own list.
Send: The Send button sends the text in the edit box to the current cursor location on the
terminal display.
Page 81
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
Enter: Is equivalent to the Enter key.
Tab: Is equivalent to the Tab key.
BTab: Is equivalent to the “back tab” or [Shift][Tab] action.
Esc: Is equivalent to the ESC key.
Each entry in the list is preceded by an index value in the form “1. “ (Not shown in the image
above.) This index, including the first space after the period, is stripped before sending. You can
edit an existing list entry by selecting it, making your changes, then pressing Add. It will replace
the existing entry contents with the new value. If there is no leading index value, for example on
a new entry, then Add will append a new list entry.
To create an entry, which begins with text similar to an index, first create a dummy entry, then
edit it to include your desired text. For example, to create an entry with the contents “1. My text”,
first enter the text “new” and press Add. Assume that this becomes the third entry. Select the
entry from the list and change “3. new” to “3. 1. My text”, then press Add again.
The index values are used to identify the text sent with the “Input n” keys on the KeyBar. Be
careful when deleting entries. Doing so may change the text sent via an Input key.
Special characters can also be entered in the text. This can be especially useful under VT
emulation when custom escape sequences are required. The following special characters are
available:
Operator
\e
\n
\r
\t
\xDD
Meaning
ESC character/action
Newline character/action
Enter character/action
TAB character/action
Hexadecimal value of byte

Command line options
CETerm supports command line switches to launch host sessions. You can launch multiple
preconfigured sessions. The following command line switches are supported.
-Sx
where x is 1, 2, 3 or 4 to indicate one of the predefined session configurations S1, S2, S3
or S4 respectively. You can specify multiple predefined sessions on the same command
line to directly connect to more than one session. For example (-S1 -S4) to connect to the
1st and 4th predefined session.
Tip: Usually it is more convenient to use the “Auto Connect” option in the Advanced Connection
dialog rather than to use the –Sx switch.
EDITING SHORTCUTS
In order to invoke a command line option, you will need to edit a shortcut on the device and
provide the additional command line options.
Editing shortcuts on an HPC device follows the desktop windows metaphor. You can do this
using the Pocket File Explorer.
•
If a shortcut does not exist, highlight the application executable (CETERM.EXE,
CE3270.EXE, CE5250.EXE, CEVT220.EXE) in File Explorer
•
Select [File][Send To][Desktop as Shortcut]. This will create a shortcut file in
the \Windows\Desktop folder.
•
If shortcut exists, using File Explorer, navigate to the folder where the shortcut exists.
•
Highlight the shortcut file. Select [File][Properties] from the application menu. A
"Properties" dialog will be displayed. Select the "Shortcut" tab
•
Add the command line option in the "Target" edit box as follows:
"\Windows\CETerm.EXE" /S1
Page 83
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
Online Help
CETerm provides an online help available on the device. This
is provided through the Online Help feature of the Windows CE
operating system.
You can access online help from the application menu by
selecting [File][Help]. Alternatively, you can invoke the
device help from [Start][Help] and then select "Naurtech
CETerm"
You can navigate within the Online help via the Pocket
Browser.

Session Persistence: Device Suspend or Out of RF Range
CETerm requires an “always on” connection to the host application. If the network connection
between CETerm and the host application is broken (or lost) at any time, the host terminal
session will have to be restarted. Generally, the connection to the host application may be lost
because of the following reasons:
•
•
The device is suspended
The device is out of radio frequency (RF) range and cannot reliably communicate with the
Access Point.
DEVICE SUSPENSION
In order to save power, Windows CE device can be configured to request the operating system to
remove power from the WLAN network adapter when the device enters suspend mode. Thus, if a
device running a TE session is suspended, it will loose the host session connection. Once it
resumes, after the suspend mode, the host session will have to be re-connected and the user
must re-login to the host application.
To avoid loss of host connection due to device suspension, you an increase the time interval that
automatically triggers the device suspension or disable it altogether from the device registry.
Such configuration is outside the realm of CETerm and may be configured as part of the device
settings.
OUT OF RF RANGE
If a device is physically taken out of radio frequency range, the network connection from the
device to the host application is lost. Any applications (such as Naurtech CETerm), relying upon
this network connection will no longer function properly. Proprietary solutions are available
however, to persist the host connection even if a device is taken out of range. Most of these
solutions use a middleware server that logically resides between the handheld device and the
server running the host application. This middleware server keeps the session connection to the
host application alive, even if the device goes out of range.
Naurtech has strategic partnerships with third party vendors to provide host session persistence
for both device suspension and device out of range scenarios. Please contact
support@naurtech.com if you have such a requirement.

NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
Configuring for Deployment
This section is directed towards Value Added Resellers and Systems consultants to simplify the
device deployment setup. Administrators generally have to address the issues outlined in this
section as part of their deployment.
COLD BOOT PERSISTENCE
Since handheld devices are diskless systems, during a cold boot, the handheld device will loose
all installed applications, registry settings, shortcuts and application data. A device may cold boot
for one of many reasons. This may be due to battery drain or hardware reset being performed by
the user. If the device cold boots in a production environment, appropriate deployment setup
must be in place to automatically bring the device back up in the same functional state as before
the cold boot. All device settings, applications, configuration data and shortcuts should be
restored automatically.
On CASIO DT-X10 and IT-500 terminals, you can setup the devices to withstand cold boots by
following these steps in listed order.
1. Configure device settings including stylus calibration and WLAN settings
2. Install and configure Naurtech CETerm. This includes host connection settings and any
auto-login macros. Test your host connection.
3. Run the CASIO Backup Tool. This will save the device image to a Flash storage from
where it can be restored in case of cold boot.
4. If the device undergoes a cold boot, run the Backup Tool and restore the device and
CETerm settings from the Flash storage.

COPY DEVICE IMAGE
For larger size deployments, it is beneficial to configure a single
device and then replicate the device image settings to multiple
devices. For CASIO DT-X10 and IT-500 terminals, you can
copy a device image from one device to another using the
“Copy Devices” utility. Prior to replicating a device image to
another device, please make sure that you completely
configure the device, wireless network and CETerm settings.
You can also replicate a device image by copying the backup
file created using the CASIO Backup Tool.
If you have a registered CETerm license on the source device,
replicating this device image to another will also copy the
license key of this source device. Because your registration
keys are based upon your device serial number, this will result
in you receiving a licensing error message when you attempt to
connect to your host application using CETerm on the
destination device. You will be prompted to re-register the
CETerm license on the destination device with a registration key based on its serial number. To
do so, enter the new registration key.

Troubleshooting
The following table helps you troubleshoot problems with CETerm. Recommended resolutions
are provided for some of the common problems.
Problem
My device does not associate with
the access point
Can I bypass the setup application
and directly install the CETerm
application?
How do I run the CETerm
application?
My device can ping an IP address
but cannot ping a host alias address
How can I tell the version of the
Naurtech CETerm that I have
installed?
I cannot connect to my host
application.
I connect to my host application
very briefly and then get
disconnected
How do I make sure that my session
settings are maintained over a
device cold boot / hardware reset?
I cannot read the terminal screen
very clearly. Is there a way to make
the font bold?
Can I change the foreground and
background colors of my terminal?
Can I use a CETerm along with a
virtual barcode scanner wedge
application?
How can I check if I have a scannerenabled version of CETerm
installed?
Resolution
Some 802.11B network configuration settings are incorrect.
Make sure the SSID and the WEP key settings are correct.
Typically a “link status” utility is provided with the wireless
adapter driver to test the RF signal quality.
Although this is not recommended, yes you can do this. All you
need to do is copy the correct CAB file from your distribution to
the device and double tap it. This will launch the CAB installer.
Make sure that the cab file being copied corresponds to the
CPU of the device.
If you have successfully installed the application on to the
device, you can launch it from the start menu. Tap the Start
button and look for "Naurtech CETerm". A shortcut is also
available on the device desktop.
Most likely, your DNS entries on your device for your TCP/IP
network settings are either not set, or are incorrect. Setup the
correct DNS server IP addresses from the “Network” applet of
the control panel. Also make sure that the device is associated
with the access point.
On the device, select [File][About] from the application
menu. The About dialog indicates the product name and
version.
Make sure that the network configuration of the device is
functional. Independent of CETerm, ping the host address that
you have configured in CETerm for a host connection. If you
can ping this address, make sure you are using the correct
type or terminal emulation to connect to the host application.
Also make sure that you are using the correct telnet port
number. This is the port number on which the host application
is “listening” for client connection attempts.
Make sure you are using the correct host emulation type. Also,
some host applications do not allow multiple connections from
the same client device.
Please refer to the “Configuring for Deployment” section
Yes, there is. Go to the [Session][Configure] menu and
select the Display tab. Update the font weight. You can also
increase the font size to further enhance readability.
Yes you can. Go to the [Session][Configure] menu and
select the Colors tab. You can either select a predefined color
scheme or create a custom color scheme to suit your
preferences.
Yes you can. It is recommended that if you use a scan wedge
application, you disable the integrated scanner in CETerm,
under the “Scanner” tab of the session configuration.
Look for “Scanner” and “Symbology” tabs in the Session
configuration dialog. If these tabs are present, the installed
version of CETerm is a device tailored version with integrated
barcode scanning support. You can also check the
[File][About] dialog.
Page 88
NAURTECH CETERM FOR CASIO DT-X10 AND IT-500
What barcode symbologies are
supported for my device?
How do I automatically invoke a
carriage return after a barcode scan
I cannot scan barcodes. The
scanner does not turn on
My barcode scanner turns on,
however I cannot decode the
barcodes
My scanned data is sometimes
inconsistent. However when I go
into [Session][Configure] and hit
OK, the scanner resumes working
correctly.
I recorded my macro, but it does not
consistently playback to
completion. Why?
How can I take a trace of my
connection with my host application
My device screen freezes or
responds slowly
The device screen is hard to read
Once you have installed the scanner enabled version of
CETerm on your device, go to the Symbology tab in
[Session][Configure] dialog. The application
automatically lists all supported symbologies for the integrated
scanner.
Go to the scanner tab on the [Session][Configure]
dialog. Add a “\r” (without quotes) to the post-amble setting.
This will submit a carriage return with every successful
barcode scan.
Make sure that you have the correct “device tailored” version
of CETerm installed. In the “Scanner” configuration, make sure
the “Enable” checkbox is checked.
Make sure that the barcode symbology that you are trying to
scan is enabled in the “Symbology” tab of the session
configuration.
This typically happens when there is a conflict in initializing the
scanner. Make sure there is no scan wedge application
running in addition to CETerm. It is recommended, depending
upon your requirements, that you either use the scan wedge
application or the integrated scanner from within CETerm, but
not both.
Macro playback is sensitive to the host application response
times and network propagation delays. These vary depending
upon network traffic and concurrent host application usage.
Increase the "Delay" setting for macro playback. This will give
the more time for the host application to respond and you
macros will playback to completion successfully.
You can use the HOSTSIM application to trace a host
connection. Detailed instructions for using HOSTSIM are
available in a knowledgebase article on the support page of
the Naurtech website at www.naurtech.com
Close all applications and run these again. If this continues to
happen, soft reset your device. Refer to the manufacturer's
documentation for your device on how to do this.
Windows CE devices usually have backlighting, contrast and
brightness controls to improve readability. Refer to the
documentation from CASIO on how to change these to your
preference. When using CETerm, you can further enhance
readability by selecting color schemes, make the font bold and
increase the display text point size. You can also install a new
font on your device.
Lastly you can also configure your device to "turn on" the
backlight, when the stylus is tapped. You can control this from
the "Backlight" applet from the System tab in
[Start][Settings]
My stylus taps seem to be giving an
incorrect response
Adjust the touch screen to respond more accurately by running
the screen alignment applet. You can do this by running the
"Align" applet from the System tab in [Start][Settings]
