The FTK Central Configuration Tool provides a graphical interface to view and change some common settings, rather than having to manually edit ADG.WeblabSelfHost.exe.config.



Download the attached FTKC Config Tool.exe and run it on the server(s) with the AccessData Exterro Self Host Service. Your current settings should be read in automatically. You will need to restart the Exterro Self Host Service after saving any changes before they will take effect.
