By default IMSpector will read the file /usr/etc/imspector/imspector.conf but this can be changed at runtime with the -c /path/to/imspector.conf switch.

IMSpector will always fork into the background when started, unless it is running in debug mode with the -d switch.

Note that the config file parser is fairly simplistic; all lines are of the form:


There is no requirement to quote the value, and it cannot be wrapped onto multiple lines. Comments using a # can be included but only at the start of a line.

The following pages explain how to configure IMSpector. To get you started, an example configuration file is included in the IMSpector download.
