Configuration Wizard

If Transfer CFT is not pre-configured, the Configuration Wizard is displayed when you start the graphical user interface for the first time. This topic describes how the Configuration Wizard creates a basic initial configuration. You can modify this configuration either immediately or at a later date.

The Configuration Wizard starts automatically when you log on. This Wizard consists of a series of screens that provide step by step instructions on how to create a configuration. The following section explains the various options and provides details on completing the Wizard.

If you did not create the initial CFTFILE files after the Transfer CFT installation, you will not be able to start the Configuration Wizard. Certain basic files must be created, as described in the Creating an initial CFTFILE topic, before you can continue with the sample file or Configuration Wizard.
