HP Jornada 560 Series PDA and 928 Wireless Digital Assistant - Setting up a GPRS Connection

Introduction
This document explains how to set up a General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) connection on the HP Jornada 560 series PDA or Jornada 928 wireless digital assistant.
Background information
The HP Jornada 560 series PDA or Jornada 928 wireless digital assistant is capable of receiving general packet radio services (GPRS), a high-speed data-only service that transmits data over a mobile telephone network. In addition, GPRS provides an always on connection.
To use GPRS, you must have a subscription with a GSM service provider that supports GPRS, and the service provider must enable the GPRS features on your account. Follow the information below to enable it.
Instructions
Before you can connect to a GPRS network, you must configure a connection. You will need the following information from your GPRS service provider:
  • The name of the Access Point Node (APN) used by your service
  • The name of the Domain Name Server(s) (DNS), if required
Configuring the GPRS connection
  1. On the Start menu, tap Settings.
  2. On the Connections tab, tap the Connections icon.
  3. In the drop-down list, tap New.
  4. Tap the Modem tab, and then tap New.
  5. Enter a descriptive name for the connection. For example My GPRS Connection.
  6. In the Select a Modem list, tap Cellular Line (GPRS) or the appropriate modem for your unit. You do not need to make a selection under Baud rate. The Baud rate is ignored when making a GPRS connection.
      note:
    If your GPRS service provider specified the IP addresses for your DNS servers, tap Advanced, then tap the Name Servers tab. Select Use specified server addresses and then enter the DNS addresses provided by your GPRS service provider. Tap OK.
  7. Tap Next.
  8. Under Access Point Name, enter the APN provided by your GPRS service provider.
  9. Tap Finish.
Connecting to the GPRS network
Use the HP GPRS application to set options for how the device attaches to the GPRS network. Your service provider can provide additional information on connecting to the Internet using GPRS.
To start the HP GPRS application, do the following:
  1. On the Start menu, tap Settings.
  2. On the System tab, tap HP GPRS.
If you want the device to automatically attach and/or detach from the network, select the appropriate options under GPRS Settings.
The GPRS application also displays the total number of bytes transferred and number of bytes transferred in the last context. Click Reset to reset the Total.
Authenticating GPRS
You must choose the authentication method required to get connected to your GPRS network. Check with your GPRS service provider to determine the authentication method used by your network. There are three methods available:
  1. None - no authentication required
  2. PAP - Password Authentication Protocol (PAP)
  3. CHAP - Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP)
Using Pocket Internet Explorer to browse the Internet
In order to browse the Internet or a corporate Intranet, you will need to create a connection first. During synchronization with the Desktop PC, download your favorite links and mobile favorites that are stored in the Mobile Favorites subfolder in Internet Explorer on the Desktop PC.
