The WebFront generally runs without any further necessary configuration. However, various settings can be changed. The relevant documentation can be taken from the subpages of this document. The general, version-comprehensive configuration is described in more detail below. A choice of icons for objects in WebFront can be found under Icons.
Configuration can be started directly from the welcome page of the IP-Symcon Management Console. The configuration can be opened via the menu item ‘Configure WebFront’.
IP-Symcon Basic contains a configurator that only supports limited changes. Up to five different configurators can be created in the IP-Symcon Professional Edition that can be retrieved on their own using the WebFront start page and be secured with a password, if desired. A configurator can be created as an independent unit, e.g. for a visualizations object, represent a special view for a maintenance technician, or simply create a security-specific separation. The same options are available for each configurator, which can be adapted as desired. As many configurators as you like can be created in the Unlimited Edition.
