  • Copy the file to the "\Application\StartUpCtl\OnReset" folder of the device
Since there will be a default file already on the device make sure to select yes when prompted to overwrite the existing file

Note: If there is an issuse and the Wavelink TE client does not start after a reboot make sure that the correct file path to the TelnetCE.exe is in the OnReset.txt folder.
