HP iPAQ 100 Classic Handheld Series - Connecting to a Computer Using Bluetooth and More

Issue:
The document describes the following issues:
  • Connecting to a computer through Bluetooth
  • Making a device discoverable
  • Authorization to access services
  • Using a passkey or bond
  • Setting a Bluetooth shared folder
Solution
  • Connecting to a computer through Bluetooth
    For the best results, connect the iPAQ to the computer using USB to establish a synchronization relationship before connecting through Bluetooth.
    1. Follow the instructions in the synchronization software help on the computer for configuring Bluetooth on your computer.
    2. On the iPAQ, tap Start > Programs > ActiveSync.
    3. Tap Menu > Connect via Bluetooth. Make sure that the device and the computer are within close range.
    4. If this is the first time you have connected to this computer through Bluetooth, complete the Bluetooth wizard on the iPAQ and set up a Bluetooth partnership with the computer.
    5. Tap Sync.
    6. Tap Menu > Disconnect Bluetooth.
    note:
    To preserve battery power, turn off Bluetooth.
  • Making a device discoverable
    When your iPAQ is discoverable, other devices with Bluetooth capabilities can detect, or discover your iPAQ and attempt to beam information to it, establish a partnership, or use a Bluetooth service.
    1. Tap Start > Settings > Connections.
    2. Tap Bluetooth > Accessibility.
    3. Select the Allow other devices to connect checkbox, and then select the Other devices can discover me checkbox.
    note:
    If you no longer want your iPAQ to be discoverable, clear the Allow other devices to connect checkbox.
  • Authorization to access services
    If you choose to require authorization to access services, you have to authorize each connection. Your iPAQ always asks you if the connection should be permitted.
    1. Tap the iPAQ Wireless icon.
    2. Tap the Bluetooth icon to turn the Bluetooth on.
    3. Tap Bluetooth > Bluetooth Settings > Services.
    4. Tap the service you want to enable: File Transfer, Information Exchange, Serial Port, Personal Network Server, Hands Free, or Dial-up Networking Server.
    5. Select Authorization required.
    6. Tap OK.
  • Using a passkey or bond
    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. The passkey must be known and used by both parties, or the connection will not be allowed.
    1. Tap the iPAQ Wireless icon.
    2. Tap the Bluetooth icon to turn the Bluetooth on.
    3. Tap Bluetooth > Bluetooth Settings > Services.
    4. Tap the service you want to enable: File Transfer, Information Exchange, Serial Port, Personal Network Server, Hands free, or Dial-up Networking Server.
    5. Select Authorization required and Authentication (Passkey) required if you want more security.
    6. Select Encryption Required if you want all the data exchanged between the devices to be encrypted.
    7. Tap OK.
  • Setting a Bluetooth shared folder
    You can determine the folder that other devices access when they connect to your iPAQ.
    1. Tap the iPAQ Wireless icon.
    2. Tap the Bluetooth icon to turn the Bluetooth on.
    3. Tap Bluetooth > Bluetooth Settings > Services > File Transfer.
    4. Under Service Settings, select your preferred settings.
    5. Tap Advanced.
    6. Tap the Folder icon, and locate a required file folder.
    7. Tap OK.
