Configuring host profiles

A host profile defines the settings that the Velocity Client should use when it attempts to initiate a connection with a specific host. The host profile may include the emulation type, IP address of the host, or other settings. Each project should have one host profile associated with it. You cannot have more than one host profile associated with a project.

To use similar settings for more that one host profile: export the project as a zip file, create a new project, import the zip, and change the settings that are different.

When a device user attempts to initiate a session with a host, the Velocity Client displays a list of available host profiles (sorted alphabetically by the profile name). The user selects the host they want to connect to, and the Velocity Client uses the host profile settings to connect to the host.

Not all settings can be configured from the Client. The following pages describe the options that are available when you configure a host profile from the Console:

Host profile settings

Auto login settings

Proxy server settings

Authorization settings

Ivanti Neurons settings

Keyboard settings

Logging settings

Mode settings

Navigation settings

Security settings

Scanner settings

Printer settings

Voice settings

To create a host profile:

1.Launch the Velocity Console.

2.Click the Create button in the top right corner of the screen and select the type of host profile you want to create.

3.Type a Name for the project. You can also provide a Customer, which is used for sorting projects.

4.Click Create.

The project opens and you can begin editing it.

5.Use the options to configure the host profile.

6.To save your changes, click the Save button.

When your project is deployed and distributed to a device, the host profile is available to the device user the next time the Velocity Client starts. You can distribute multiple host profile deployment files to each device. For more information about deploying a project, see Deploying a project.
