Tech Tip: 4D Client manual connection settings
PRODUCT: 4D Client | VERSION: 6.5 | PLATFORM: Mac & Win
Published On: June 9, 2000

In 4D Client, when you use the option to manually enter addresses for a TCP/IP or IPX connection, these addresses are stored in preferences files. To easily transfer these manual addresses to other machines, or to get rid of them, you need to know exactly where these files are stored on the 4D Client machine.

On Windows 95 and Windows 98 (assuming your boot drive is volume C), the settings are stored in:


On Windows NT and Windows 2000 (assuming your boot drive is volume C), the settings are stored in:


On Macintosh, the settings are stored in:

System Folder:Preferences:TCP.pref
System Folder:Preferences:IPX.pref

These files can be opened and read in a word processor.

Note that these files are not stored in an ACI folder. So, for example, if you're trying to preserve your settings by copying the ACI folder to a new computer you've upgraded to, you'll need to remember to copy these files as well.
