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.
If you want 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 he wants 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:
You must install the Speakeasy Tools in order to see the Voice tab.
To associate a host profile with your project
1.Click the Host button.
2.Use the options on the tabs to configure the host profile.
3.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 Distributing Settings to Devices.
