Rename a Port

This section describes how to rename a port. Renaming ports requires administrator access rights.

From the administration client, highlight the port you wish to rename, by clicking in the port list. Select Port / Rename Port from the menu, and enter the administrator password (if required). This will bring up the rename dialog shown below. The current description is initially shown in the New machine description field. Change this to the new description and press OK. If you do not wish to change the description, press Cancel.

Rename port.

The description must be 1-128 characters long, but it is highly recommended that you choose a short description with 5-20 characters, this way, the description takes up less space in the port list, and in log files etc.
