Jump Desktop for iOS lets you lock down settings to prevent users from accidentally editing global or individual connection settings.
If you want to prevent settings for a single connection from being modified:
You'll have to manually edit the .jump file associated with the connection and add a configuration variable in there that prevents it from being changed. Here's how you do this:
- Open up Jump Desktop for iOS.
- Create a connection in Jump and adjust it's settings to what you want it to be.
- After you're done editing, go back to the main Jump Desktop screen and tap the settings icon on the top left.
- Tap Computer List and then tap Export All Computers.
- Email the archive file to yourself on a Mac or a PC so that you can edit it further.
- Once on the PC or Mac, save the file to your desktop and rename the jdz file extension to zip. Then uncompress it by double clicking it (the archive file uses the standard zip file format).
- In the uncompressed folder you should see a Servers directory. Open it up and you should see .jump files in there.
- Open up the .jump file that has your connection's name. Jump files are simple text files which use the JSON file format.
- Change the DisableServerEdit row inside the .jump file to the following:
"DisableServerEdit" : true,
- Save the .jump file.
- Next, zip up the Servers directory and rename the file extension from zip to jdz. You can usually do this by right clicking the folder in Explorer or Finder.
- Finally share/email this file to to your iOS device and open it up using the Jump app. It will import the servers in the file.
