How to edit configuration and properties files for a 12.1 Web Viewer USS install? 

Question:

 I read where it says to look at the config files and the properties files, but they are non-readable through putty. How do I go about looking at the contents of these files?

Environment:
Mainframe, USS
Answer:

Those files, as is Tomcat, are in ASCII. So on the mainframe, you want to go into 3.17, navigate to the file location (should be wherever CAOMWV12_Home points), and do a view or edit in ASCII - "v a" or "e a". 

Additional Information:

From that same panel, at the top, you may want to go into Option 1 and make your column width 31 instead of the default which is probably 15. It'll make things easier to read.
