Opticonfigure

Opticonfigure serves primarily as a an online searchable Universal Menu Book (UMB), however it does have some notable differences. Opticonfigure is updated more frequently than the UMB. Opticonfigure also contains some menu options that were excluded from the UMB for the sake of brevity. Although more inclusive, Opticonfigure doesn't do as good of presenting information in an organized and comprehensible manner as the UMB does. Opticonfigure allows you to: Create and print custom configuration sheets. Create custom configuration sheets and save them as PDF files. Create custom configurations and export OCG files.

Use in Linux

The MDI3100 is supported in Linux with the 'libudev0' library and it appears as ttyACM0d. the port can then be opened as any other serial port in Linux.
