Management Console Configuration file in detail


Configuration file “resilio-connect-server.conf” is stored in different locations depending on OS:
- Windows: C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Roaming\resilio-connect-server\resilio-connect-server.conf
- Linux: ${resilio_connect_server_dir}/var/resilio-connect-server.conf
It is in JSON format, so please stick to JSON syntax to ensure Resilio Connect Management Console can parse the file successfully.

Every time you change the file you’ll need to restart the Connect Management Console for changes to take effect.
