Repeat steps 2 and 3 to continue enrolling your fingerprint. When that fingerprint is enrolled successfully, repeat steps 1 through 4 to enroll a second fingerprint. When both fingerprints are successfully enrolled, tap OK twice to continue setting up HP ProtectTools.
You can use your HP iPAQ to connect to and exchange information with other handheld devices, your computer, various network types, or the Internet. There are several ways to get connected, including: • Infrared (Beam) • Bluetooth • Wi-Fi All these connection types can be accessed by tapping Start >...
Your HP iPAQ comes with built-in Bluetooth, a short-range wireless communications technology. Devices with Bluetooth capabilities can exchange information over a distance of about 10 meters (30 feet) without requiring a physical connection. You can use Bluetooth to: • Beam information, such as files, appointments, tasks, and contact cards, between devices that have Bluetooth capabilities.
Use Bluetooth Manager to: • Establish connections • Exchange business cards • Display shortcuts To access Bluetooth Manager: From the Today screen, tap the iPAQ Wireless icon. Tap the Bluetooth icon to turn Bluetooth on. Tap the Manager button. The first screen that displays is My Shortcuts.
You can pair devices so they must exchange a computer generated security key prior to each connection. The security key is generated from a unique Bluetooth device address, a random number, and a user-defined password. After two devices are paired, they have a trusted relationship with each other.
If other devices cannot find or connect to your HP iPAQ, try the following: • Be sure Bluetooth is turned on. • Move closer to the device. • Be sure you have not restricted other devices from finding yours. •...
Partnership You can create a partnership between your HP iPAQ and another device that has Bluetooth capabilities. Once you do this, the devices must have Bluetooth turned on but don’t need to be discoverable for you to beam information between them.
When prompted to accept a partnership with the device that is requesting the relationship, tap Yes. If a passkey is requested, enter an alphanumeric passkey between 1 and 16 characters in Passkey, and tap Next. Enter the same passkey in the device requesting the partnership. Using a passkey provides greater security.
Select the Turn on Bluetooth check box, then select the Make this device discoverable to other devices check box. NOTE: If you no longer want your HP iPAQ to be discoverable, clear the Make this device discoverable to other devices check box.
Tap Start > iPAQ Wireless. On the iPAQ Wireless screen, tap Settings.
To establish a secure connection with another device, you can use the passkey feature or an established bond. You can also add data encryption to this type of security. A passkey is a code you enter to authenticate connections requested by other devices.
If you choose to require authorization to access services, you must authorize each connection. Your HP iPAQ always asks you if the connection should be permitted. To require authorization to access services: From the Today screen, tap the iPAQ Wireless icon.
You can determine the folder that other devices access when they connect to your HP iPAQ. To select a shared folder: From the Today screen, tap the iPAQ Wireless icon. Tap the Bluetooth icon to turn Bluetooth on. Tap the Settings button > Services tab.

If you are connected to your Internet Service Provider (ISP) or private network during synchronization, your device should download proper proxy settings during synchronization from your computer. If these settings are not on your computer or need to be changed, you can change them manually.
For the appropriate server type, enter the proxy server name and port. If necessary, enter the credentials for connecting with your proxy server. If you are configuring a Socks proxy, select Socks 4 or Socks 5. If using Socks 5, enter the credentials for connecting with your proxy server.
Your device is already set up with two groups of connection settings: My ISP and My Work Network. You can change the name of these groups to something more meaningful. For example, if you put all of your corporate settings under My Work Network connections, you can change the name to your company’s name.
Tap Start > Settings > Connections tab. Tap Connections > Advanced tab > Exceptions. Tap the intranet URL exception you want to change, then make the desired changes. NOTE: To delete a work URL exception, tap and hold it in the list, then tap Delete.
