Export Settings

Once TinyTERM for iOS is configured to user needs, you can export the settings for use by other mobile devices. The settings can then be imported by other mobile devices running TinyTERM Enterprise, whether on Android or iOS.

Begin Export

Tapping this button exports the data using the following settings to a file named TinyTERM.ttconfig, then opens an iOS file handling dialog. The file may be exported using any available option there. After exporting the file, its name may be changed as long as the .ttconfig extension is preserved; e.g., Warehouse.ttconfig.

Data to Export

The items listed under Data to Export can all be exported by selecting the Everything option, which is the default. Alternatively, that can be deselected, and individual items set as desired. The item specifics are:

Selecting any item will include both default and custom items of that type. TinyTERM currently allows only all-or-nothing export for a given data category.

Export Options

The TinyTERMconfig.ttconfig file may be password-protected if desired. The password must be supplied in order to import the file. This is useful for individual configuration sharing, but is not recommended for mass deployment.

Import Options

These settings affect the behavior of imported files. When importing a configuration, it can Overwrite Existing Config, which will overwrite any internal files of the same name, but preserve others. In contrast, Remove Existing Config will erase the current configuration in favor of the new TinyTERM.ttconfig file. Silent Import prevents any warnings of this behavior.

Editing Configuration Files

The TinyTERMconfig.ttconfig file uses the same file format as a ZIP archive, provided the file is not encrypted. An encrypted .ttconfig file can only be opened by TinyTERM Enterprise, provided the password is available.

This means that any tool which opens ZIP files will also extract .ttconfig files. To enable this, simply change the file extension from .ttconfig to .zip. This allows editing of the individual files contained within.

It also allows adding files, such as custom keyboard layouts. TinyTERM Enterprise will also accept a certificate file for use by the Industrial Browser, when contained in the .ttconfig file. The certificate must be in .pem format, and be named ib_cacerts.pem.

When finished editing, zip the files again using any archive tool without a password. Do not zip the folder that contains the file, but the individual files themselves. Change the file extension back to .ttconfig, and it's ready for import.
