Migrating from LIVE to FastX

The LIVE protocol and the FastX Protocol are incompatible. Existing users may with to migrate their old LIVE Connections to the newer FastX Connections

Converting Connections

Users who are familiar with XML parsers can write their own utilities to convert the connections.

The FastX Connections are stored in .xw32 files in %APPDATA%\StarNet Communications\FastX\Connections.
The file name is the Uid of the Connection.

The format is as follows. Changing the ordering of the format may result in the connection not appearing in the FastX window.
Uid, Name, Host, and Port are required.

<SshConnection>
     <Uid>{__uuid__}</Uid>
     <Name>__connection_name__</Name>
     <Host>__hostname_or_ip_address__</Host>
     <Port>__ssh_port_number__</Port>
     <User>__username__</User>
     <Sci>__optional_sci_command__</Sci>
      <Fips>true</Fips>
</SshConnection>
