6.9. Save User Selected Parameters
It is strongly recommended to save all user-defined parameters to an ASCII file as
described in Section 15. This will allow quick recovery in the event of accidental

RPC has saved the newly defined parameters before exiting from command mode.
To save parameters, press the [Esc] key several times until you have exited from all
configuration menus and the RPC displays the "Saving Configuration" menu and the
cursor returns to the command prompt. If newly defined configuration parameters
are not saved prior to exiting from command mode, then the RPC will revert to the
previously saved configuration after you exit from command mode.
