TPX File Settings

TinyTERM Enterprise stores its configurations in files with the .tpx extension; e.g., default.tpx. The TPX file uses the Windows ini file format for its settings:


Not all the settings in the TPX file are available through the connection settings due to user interface space restrictions. Extra options are documented here. These may be added by exporting the configuration, then extracting the .tpx file. Any text editor may be used to add or change the settings.

Edited files may be uploaded to TinyTERM by following these instructions.
