BPQ32 Config File

Updated: March 9, 2019

When setting up my BPQ32 system I found it very difficult to find examples of the configuration file of an actual working station, so I decided to post the configuration file of my BPQ32 system online so that hopefully others who are setting up a BPQ system on a Windows computer will find it easier to get their system setup and online.

 

I have blocked out any passwords for security reasons with [PASSWORD]. Other than that, this is the actual configuration file that I am using for my station. If you would like a copy of the text file send me an Email and I will send it to you.
