Change Quick Setup allows you to change the parameters that affect basic terminal operations, a subset of the parameters in Change Setup Parameters and Change User Preferences.
By default, you access Change Quick Setup through the Console, after the NCD terminal has been booted (Setup -> Change Quick Setup). For other ways to display and start local clients and information about disabling local clients, see the NCDware System Administrator's Guide for UNIX Systems.
Components of the Change Quick Setup Window
Change Quick Setup contains a series of hide boxes providing access to fields that correspond to remote configuration parameters.
Change Quick Setup has a menu bar with a File menu and a Sections menu, a messages area, and several buttons:
Connect to New Unit-Presents a popup box requesting a terminal name and the config-read-only-password or config-read-write-password required for configuration data access. Displays that terminal's Change Quick Setup dialog box.
Apply-Applies current changes to the current session. Applies changes to NVRAM and to configuration files according to Auto Save settings. Parameters may take effect immediately after you click on
Apply, at boot time, at session startup, or when a client is initialized. When you click on
Apply, a message in the Messages area indicates when the change takes effect.
