INTRODUCTION
Seeing the need to combine wireless connectivity and telnet terminal emulation, MIRROR
VT Emulator, also known as CipherNet-VT, is designed to provide telnet terminal
emulation on the 8000/8300/8400/8500 Series Mobile Computers, which are capable of
802.11b/g or GPRS connectivity.
The software, consisting of CipherNet programs (.exe) and the associated runtime (.shx),
is designed for the users to develop custom telnet sessions for the use with the terminal
emulation runtime preloaded on the mobile computers, without spending time writing
any program code. Each of the mobile computers is a telnet client that allows the user to
connect to a host computer, such as an IBM AS/400 server, and make use of the
applications running on it. Thus, the mobile computer works as an input device to a host
computer, and the data collected or input will be sent back to the host computer. On the
other hand, the mobile computer works as an output device as well because it can
display data coming in from the host. Based on the nature that the screen size of the
mobile computer is smaller than that of an actual terminal, CipherNet programs provide a
number of unique features for reformatting host screens.
This manual serves to provide comprehensive understanding of MIRROR VT Emulator,
and helps start a telnet session running host applications. We recommend that you read
the document thoroughly before use and keep it at hand for quick reference.
Thank you for choosing CipherLab products!

Refer to 3.3 WLAN Interface.
3.4.1 OPEN SYSTEM/SHARED KEY
Two types of network authentication methods are supported: Open System and Shared
Key.
Setting
Remark
Open System
Using Open authentication, any wireless station can request authentication. The
station that needs to authenticate with another wireless station sends an
authentication management frame that contains the identity of the sending
station. The receiving station or AP will grant any request for authentication.
Shared Key
Open authentication allows any device network access. If no encryption is
enabled on the network, any device that knows the SSID of the access point
can gain access to the network.
Using Shared Key authentication, each wireless station is assumed to have
received a secret shared key over a secure channel that is independent from the
29
MIRROR VT Emulator User Guide
802.11b/g wireless network communications channel.
Shared key authentication requires that the client configure a static WEP key.
The client access will be granted only if it passed a challenge based
authentication.

that the cursor will always be visible on the screen. Thus, every screen received from the
host will be displayed with the cursor visible to indicate the first input field.
Note: This feature only works when a screen refresh incident occurs on the host.
When you disable the Cursor Tracking feature, the coordinates (0,0) on the terminal
screen are related to (0,0) on the host screen. Thus, every screen received from the host
will be first displayed starting from (0,0) regardless of the cursor.
The relationship between the terminal screen (small) and the host screen (large) is based
on the upper-left point of the screens (see above). The cursor is outside of the terminal
screen. To view the hidden information or locate the cursor, you need to adjust the
terminal screen manually.

4.5 FUNC TOGGLE & FUNCTION KEY MAPPING
The function key or key combination is one of the keys on the mobile physical keypad
that transmit control codes. Control codes do not produce displayable characters but are
codes for functions. If these codes are received by the mobile computer, it will perform
the associated function as defined.
4.5.1 FUNC TOGGLE
Generally, a function key combination, which requires pressing FN to enter the function
mode, works as follows —
1) Press FN on the 8300/8400/8500 Series mobile computer.
There will be an “F” icon on the screen to indicate the function mode is on.
2) Press the second key to get the value of a key combination (say, press the number
key 1 to get the value of F1). The icon will go off as the function mode is toggled off.
To have the function mode persist, you may choose to lock the function toggle in
advance so that it will not be toggled off automatically.
3) To get the value of another key combination, repeat the above steps.
To abort the function mode, press FN again and the icon will go off.
Note: For 8300/8400/8500 Series, the function key is unlocked by default.
For 8000 Series, the function key only works with the function toggle locked.
