Configuring the MobiLink Agent interactively

The MobiLink Agent can be configured using a configuration window as well as through the command line. The configuration window appears automatically if the Agent is run and there is not enough information for the Agent database to operate properly. Alternatively, you can display the configuration dialog using the menu on the MobiLink Agent window. For Windows, click the System menu in the top left corner of the MobiLink Agent window and click Configure. For Windows Mobile, select the Configure item on the menu bar.
