How to Encrypt Parameters
- Using a text editor, open the configuration file you want to encrypt, create a blank line above each parameter you want to encrypt, and type in the following for each:
Note: Any information on the line after #!ENCRYPT will be ignored.
- Save the configuration file as an edit file.
- Run the XCOMENCR utility to do the actual encryption: Type the following and press ENTER:
[RUN] XCOMENCR input_file output_file
Note: input_file is the configuration file you saved in step 2.
XCOMENCR will encrypt the parameter value on the line following each #!ENCRYPT statement. Intervening comment lines are ignored.
Changing a Value That is Already Encrypted
To change an encrypted value that is already specified, you must delete all text after the parameter name and give it a new value.
Example If the line you want to change is:PASSWORD.ENCRYPTED= 12 0F 36 79 65 AB D0 37 ...
you have to delete:.ENCRYPTED= 12 0F 36 79 65 AB D0 37 ...
Then type in an equal sign and the new parameter value, replacing NEWVALUE with your desired value, as follows:PASSWORD= NEWVALUE
Then save the file as an edit file and run XCOMENCR.
