How do I edit configuration files?

The only user modifiable files are in the etc/config path (i.e. set Path to etc/config). In particular, the following files are most likely to be edited:

The files global.prefs, protocolGroup.txt and protocolPriorities.txt are small and can be edited directly through the web interface through the Edit File form. Simply edit the file contents in the form and click Submit to change the file.

Another option for updating files is to use the file Upload form at the top of the page. Enter the location of a file on your PC and click on the Submit button to upload the file, replacing the version of the file on Traffic Sentinel.
