Operator MenuOpen ConfigurationConfiguration managementThin Client configuration fileOpening the configuration fileFile description

 

Due to the notepad format it is possible to edit everything in the configuration file without this being checked for validity or function. It is possible to restore the factory settings in case you have made faulty changes which result in system failure or which you wish to cancel.

 

For information on how to restore the cicon2 Factory settings please refer to the section of the same name.

 

In the notepad file itself different coloured entries denote different functions.

Green entries are pure text entries for the purpose of information on and explanation of the edit options.
For example, the second line specifies the version number of the configuration file (in the original file here: V. 2.34).
Black entries are functional entries specifying either the actual function or where values for this function are set.
The headers of each new section are highlighted in blue, and the header title is set in [square] brackets.
For easier orientation in the notepad file each line is given a red number.
