Configure the application using the gear icon on the login screen or by tapping Settings in the navigation drawer. The version information can be found at the bottom of the screen.
The following settings are mandatory for T.Flex to begin working:
- User name
- Server domain name (or IP address)
- Server Port
To change a parameter, tap that parameter, enter the value and tap OK.
Changing these settings can be disallowed by your TASSTA administrator in T.Commander.
You can hide settings on the client side by disabling the Allow Settings option. Note that this removes the Settings item from the navigation drawer altogether. The settings become hidden the next time you log in.
The following tables list all of the options and features available in the T.Flex Settings menu. Configure them in accordance with your network policy and operational environments.
