In telnet you can view your options file with a simple options_show command.


If you want to export your options file, I would do it from console from the linux prompt using hyperterminal or terraterm.  It resides at etc/idirect/falcon/falcon.opt

filename: falcon.opt is the options file.

1 Open the good Options file in a text editor (i.e. Notepad) and copy all of the text to the Windows
clipboard.
2 On the console, move to the Options file directory by entering the following command:
cd /etc/idirect/falcon/
3 Rename the current Options file by entering the following command:
mv falcon.opt falcon.opt.old
Note: A no Such file or directory error displays if there is no existing Options file.
4 Enter the following command to create, and enter text into, a new Options file:
cat > falcon.opt
5 Move the mouse cursor to the location of the console cursor, and right-click to paste the text
previously copied (in Step 1) into the console session.
6 Press Enter once, and then press Ctrl-D to exit.
