Transfer a BALCFG configuration file to a reader
To test a configuration with your host system or configure an Ethernet reader with a static IP address, transfer the configuration to the reader as follows:
- Open the configuration file (BALCFG format) in BALTECH ConfigEditor.
- Connect the reader to your computer.
- Click Deploy Config > Transfer configuration to reader.
Click the reader, then click Select.
The configuration is transferred to the reader.
Once completed, you'll see the following message:
What's draft mode?
Configurations in draft mode are meant for temporary use until testing is completed. Once you have a version ready for release, finalize it before handing it over to any other stakeholders or deploying it productively. This helps you distinguish drafts from released versions and adds encryption, so the configuration is protected during transmission to other devices.
For static IP configurations, finalization isn't needed.
