Metiix Blockade uses a configuration file to modify its default startup parameters.  It will look for a file to exist upon startup.  If the file does not exist, it uses its default parameters.  If the file does exist, it will attempt to parse the config file and will use its contents to override the default configuration.

If the file does not exist, simply create it.

Windows:

On Windows, blockade will look for a config file named config.toml in the following location:

%SYSTEMDRIVE%\ProgramData\Metiix\Blockade

So the full filepath of the config file might look like this as an example:

C:\>ProgramData\Metiix\Blockade\config.toml


Linux:

On Linux, blockade will look for a config file named config.toml in the following locations:

/usr/local/var/blockade/

So the full filepath of the config file might look like any of these examples:

/usr/local/var/blockade/config.toml
