Sharing NfRemote Settings

Updated 1 week ago by Mark Manolio

Scope

This document covers how to find the NfRemote settings and share them with other users. This applies to the NfRemote software application for Omnia.9, Omnia.9sg, Omnia.7 and Telos Z/IPStream 9X/2.

Description/Problem

Q: Is there a config file for NfRemote somewhere in Windows that can be shared among many people to give all of them the info entered in an NfRemote instance? We need to get a bunch of PCs configured with all of the IPs and addresses and hopefully the same initial display setup.

Solution

A: Yes there is!

The connection database is in the registry.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\NfRemote

It’s the “Data” binary value.

You can export it from regedit, and import it on another machine by double-clicking on the REG file.

 Before sharing, we recommend opening it in notepad and deleting the “Installed”, “Path” and “Timestamp” values, leaving only the “Data” value so that these system-specific keys don’t get imported into other systems.

 As for the display configurations, you’ll find them in:

c:\Users\user\AppData\Local\NfRemote\

There is one ini file per unit you connect to, per instance.

For example, connecting to an Omnia.9 with serial number 99901, the file name will be:

Omnia.9 - OMNIA9-99901 - Remote (1).ini

 If you start another NfRemote instance in parallel, it’ll be

Omnia.9 - OMNIA9-99901 - Remote (2).ini

There are several command-line parameters available, most of them are listed in:

c:\Users\user\AppData\Local\NfRemote\NfRemote.txt
