The Configuration Setup

The Config view has 4 cards that each have a specific purpose;

Attention: Changing some of the config settings will trigger a new config ID. When the config gets a new ID, the previously adopted devices need to be readopted to become a member of the same config again

Properties that trigger a new ID are:

  • Samplerate
  • Multi-cast Address

Config Settings


  • Config Name The name of the config as displayed on the devices or in the network view
  • Config Description An optional longer description of the config file can be set here which will be visible in recently loaded items
  • Samplerate The sample rate determines the Audio Quality. Default setting is 32 kHz which provides a 15 kHz audio bandwidth
  • Multi-cast Address The IPv4 multi-cast address that is used for this config. By default, a random address is created for a new config. For managed IT situations a fixed multi-cast address can be entered in this setting

Config Security


  • Config Password A config password can be set to block new devices from joining a config on the network. When a password is set, devices can only join the password-protected config when the correct password is entered on the device or through Green-GO Control
  • Admin Password An admin password can be set to block users from changing a config file. When creating or joining a config, no changes can be made before the correct admin password is entered
  • Tech Pin-code The tech PIN code can be used to give a qualified technician access to blocked menu items, set in User Security. If no PIN code is set, blocked menus are inaccessible on the device

Setting a Config Password

Implement this feature cautiously. Green-GO does not encourage the casual use of this feature. If you set password security in Green-GO control and forget or lose your password, you will lose access to your configuration file. If you implement password protection, please document your password in a secure location.

Config Info


The config info card gives information on non user changeable config properties

  • Created At The timestamp of the creation of the config file
  • Saved At The time when the config file was last saved to disk
  • Timestamp The time when the config was last saved to the devices
  • Config ID The ID of the config is a randomly generated number that gets assigned when the config is created or when the sample rate or multi-cast address is changed. The Config id is the Unique identifier of a config. All devices with a config with the same Config ID are member of the same config and are able to communicate
  • Software version The version of the software the config was created with

Config Colors


The appearance of the config on devices and in the Green-GO Control software can be customized by altering the config colors. These colors are used to indicate the channel status on devices and in the channel lists in the Green-GO Control software.

The channel status is dependent on e.g. enabled talks or incoming calls.

each status has 3 properties: Color 1, Color 2 and Blink.

  • Color 1 is the base color
  • Color 2 defines the blink color
  • Blink rate sets the period and duty cycle of the blink

Color 1 is the base color of the channel status and color 2 and blink are used to give the status a dynamic behavior. If the Blink rate is set to No blink, color 2 is ignored.


There is a fixed set of colors available to choose from;

  • Black (off)
  • White
  • Red
  • Green
  • Blue
  • Cyan
  • Magenta
  • Yellow
  • Orange
  • Purple

The blink rate sets the duration and duty cycle of the blink, alternating between the two set colors 1 and 2.

Blink Period Duty Cycle
No blink always color 1 100%
2 second 2 second 50%
1 second 1 second 50%
½ second ½ second 50%
¼ second ¼ second 50%
½ second pulse 2 second 25%
¼ second pulse 2 second 12,5%

Default Status Colors

A new config is by default created with the following colors;

color state status description
Solid Free The channel dis not assigned.
Solid No member The channel is assigned but no receiving devices are present.
Solid Idle Muted The channel is assigned but muted.
Solid Idle The channel is assigned and idle, ready to receive audio.
