Locating the Configuration File

Your configuration file can be located where it best suits you. The mfclient and mfserver programs attempt to locate the configuration file as follows:

  1. They look for the MFCSCFG environment variable and use the supplied filename if one is specified.
  2. They examine the command line and use any filename defined there in preference to that supplied via the MFCSCFG environment variable.
  3. If neither of the above yields a filename, the default filename mfclisrv.cfg is assumed and searched for in the current directory.
  4. If mfclisrv.cfg is not found, the default settings for the configuration entries are used.

In each case a full pathname of up to 128 characters can be used to identify the location of the configuration file.
