Only existing address book entries can be changed via the configuration menu via the current firmware version of the Thin Client devices.
 
For more information, please refer to chapter cicon2 Address book changes and its sub-sections.

 

Adding further address book entries or deleting them can only be done via the configuration file. The address book section is located at the beginning of the configuration file.

 

Address book

 

Scroll down until the ENTRY entries. These determine each address book connection. Each address book entry requires 7 lines for the address book definition. All of these lines begin with the term ENTRY. The number immediately following this term defines the position (address book number) this address book entry is located. The address book entries (7 ENTRY lines) are separated from one another by a blank line. This is for reasons of legibility and has no functional purpose. The way the ENTRY definitions are written must not be changed. Only the entries after the = may be changed according to the associated definition.
